It has been (and still seems to be) a l o n g winter! We know Spring is just around the corner and we can’t wait for warmer days, sunshine, budding trees and green grass! We know the end of the school year can be busy and hectic. We are going to have our Bishop’s Day (a day off from school granted by the Bishop himself when he came to St. Anna’s for Grandparent’s Day) on May 14th. This will give families a long weekend in May when hopefully you can enjoy some nicer weather. It is going to be a busy end of the year (see the upcoming events) and we want you to enjoy this extra day off!
STAFF APPRECIATION WEEK
May 7th - May 11th is Teacher/Staff Appreciation week! We will be celebrating our SUN-Sational Teachers & Staff all week by showering them with kind words, small gifts, and a special luncheon! The luncheon will be on Thursday, May 10th from 11:40am - 12:40pm. We will need parent volunteers to make the food, and volunteers to supervise the children that day while they are at lunch and recess. Please use the Teacher Appreciation Week Volunteer Sign-Up Sheet to add your name where ever you can help out! Thank you!
MARY POPPINS THE MUSICAL!
Mark your calendars! You don’t want to miss our drama club’s performance of Mary Poppins. You can come to one of the two shows or come to both!!! Join us, Thursday, May 10th at 7:00PM or Friday, May 11th at 7:00PM. This show is free to all; however we do accept donations at the door. Your donations help us pay for the rights to perform the show, permissions for videotaping, costumes, sets and other costs associated with putting on a play. This is sure to be one of our best performances yet!
The school students will have a sneak peek of the play on Wednesday morning. I’m sure many will come home asking to come to the play, so plan ahead!
