October 20  


Awards Ceremony

The first quarter awards assembly will be held on Thursday, October 26th following the 9:00 Mass in the church sanctuary. 

Uniform Company Change

While we are changing uniform companies, we are not changing uniforms.  November 1st is the official date for students to transition to winter uniforms.  We thought this would be the perfect time to have representatives from our new company, Flynn O'Hara, come in for a fit day.  They will be on campus from 2:30-5:30 pm on Thursday, November 2nd in the parish social hall. A flyer will go home prior to this event. 

Parent/Teacher Conferences

 Parent/teacher conferences are scheduled for November 9th.  Letters should arrive at homes mid week informing you of the specific time(s) of your conference(s).

Thank You

A huge thank you is owed to all the parents (and students) who gave generously of their time and talents to assist with the Parish Workday on Saturday, October 14th.  Please remember to log your volunteer hours in the book provided for that purpose on the ledge just outside Mrs. Whitlow's office. 


We are still collecting socks for Catholic Charities through the month of October. Baby and kid sized socks are especially needed, but all new socks are welcome. 

Fall Festival 

Join us for a SPOOKTACULAR good time at the St. Ann Fall Festival on October 27th from 6 pm to 9 pm!  This free event is open to all families of the school and parish.  We encourage your most frightful costumes - the best costume wins a prize!  Get ready for fun Halloween games, the 8th grade's famous "Haunted Hallway" and our annual cakewalk.  Concessions will be sold by the 8th grade parents to benefit their trip to Washington D.C.  The event will be held at the school grounds and social hall. Contact Kim Tobler at 253-229-6105 with question or to volunteer.

 Toy Swap 

Do your kids own any toys they have outgrown or don’t play with anymore?  Would you like to swap them out with “new to you” toys?  If yes, please bring in your gently used items to Ms. Whitlow at the St. Ann School office.  We will hold a Toy Swap during the Fall Festival, starting at 6 PM, October 27th.  Contact Kim Tobler at 253-229-6105 with questions.

 Donations Needed 

The Fall Festival will be here before we know it, and we need donations of candy for the games and prizes at the festival.  Please start bringing in your candy donations as soon as possible and leave them in the kitchen after church.  We also need donations of baked goods for the cake walk at the Fall Festival.  Please bring those in a few days prior to the event, but no later than the afternoon of October 27.
