St. Ann Weekly Newsletter

February 21, 2020



St. Ann's major fundraiser of the year will be held next Saturday, February 22nd at 6:00 pm in the social hall. Our auction theme is Mardi Gras and promises to be a great evening with wonderful items up for bid. Tickets for this event are now on sale for 10 dollars. Please contact the school office or the auction coordinator, Deanna Turner, if you would like to purchase tickets. Children should not attend this event, as it is for adults only. 

Auction Volunteers Needed

We need some help with our auction. There are a few jobs that need to be filled on the night of the event. These jobs range from selling tickets to helping people check out at the end of the evening. If you are able to volunteer your time, please contact the school office, or Deanna Turner who is the coordinator for this event. Thank you in advance for helping out. 

Ash Wednesday

Next Wednesday, February 26th, will be Ash Wednesday. As this day marks the beginning of the season of Lent, students will be attending Mass on this day. Therefore, students will need to wear their Mass uniforms. Students will not attend Mass on Thursday, so they will need to wear their regular school uniforms. 

CRS Rice Bowl

As is the tradition during every Lenten season, students at St. Ann will receive a rice bowl to take home next week. All the money collected in the rice bowls will be donated to Catholic Relief Services, an organization that helps people in communities throughout the world. This is one of many service projects that the students complete throughout the year. A date to turn in the rice bowls will be announced closer to Easter. 

Book Fair Volunteers Needed

Calling all parents in need of volunteer hours (and also those who just love books and kids!) Our spring Book Fair will be held March 9th - 13th, from 7:45 - 4 pm daily. We are in need of volunteers to run the book fair for all those hours (shifts will last for one or more hours at a time and training will be provided). Please contact Ms. Tapia or Ms. Isenbarger for more information or to sign up! Our teachers and students and most especially, our library, thank you sincerely!
