Report Cards/Awards Ceremony

Because of the missed days of school from the hurricane, the date for report cards to go home has been pushed back to Friday, October 26th. 

The 1st quarter awards assembly will be held on Thursday, November 1st. Students will be recognized for their academic achievements following the 9:00 Mass in the church sanctuary (usually around 9:45). 

Positivity Project Character Strength of the Week

The students of St. Ann have been engaged in daily lessons about the character strengths featured within the Positivity Project, our character education program. Research has shown that these 24 character strengths are present in every person, just at varying degrees of prominence. This week, students have been focused on learning about integrity which is defined simply as, doing the right thing even when nobody is watching. Students that have integrity at the top of their list of strengths are honest and speak the truth. They present themselves genuinely and sincerely. Curious about how your character strengths are ranked? Take the survey on the VIA Institute's website to find out. It's a free survey that will ask many questions, but will generate a personalized report of your character strengths. Many of the middle school students took this survey last year.
