St. Ann Weekly Newsletter

March 24th, 2023


Thank You

Thank you very much for supporting our Scholastic Book Fair this week! A portion of the sales from this week will allow us to buy new books for our library.

Thank you also for supporting our monthly Skate Night activity. Just as with the book fair, a portion of the proceeds from Skate Night is returned to the school. Your participation has significantly increased those returns. This activity also presents a fun opportunity for our St. Ann families to get to know each other.

Volunteer Hours

There are some opportunities coming up that will allow you to get in any volunteer hours that are still needed. Please make sure that you are logging your hours on Gradelink. Instructions on how to do that are on the school news page of Gradelink.

Upcoming volunteer opportunities:

- Parish clean-up day - March 25th, 8:30-noon (rain date April 1) - volunteer time does count towards the required 10 hours per family

-Field day - April 21st - will need help with set up, supervising activities and clean up/take down - any interested parents should contact Coach Adams via email at

Living Stations of the Cross

The 8th grade class, with help from students in the 6th and 7th grades, will be performing the living stations of the cross on the afternoon of Friday, March 31st. Parents are invited to attend. If you cannot attend the performance, it will also be livestreamed on Facebook.
