Dear SACS Families, We are busy preparing for the upcoming Catholic Schools Week. We have lots of great events planned. We hope you can join us for Mass on Sunday, January 31st at 10:00 and the open house to follow. Please come visit your child’s classroom and see what they have been working on. Potential families are welcome too so bring all of your friends. We were presented with a $4,000 donation for our Italian program today by the Fitchburg State University Center for Italian. This will help keep our Italian program up and running so they can continue to learn the language and culture. Today several classes learned how to make home made pasta!
OPEN HOUSE-ALL ARE WELCOMEWe will start Catholic Schools Week off with an Open House. We’d love everyone to come see what all the excitement is about. The Open House will be held after the 10:00 Mass (11:00-12:00) on Sunday, January 31st. This is for current families, potential families and parishioners. We’d love the opportunity to show off what the students have been learning at school this year.
We also invite all of our current students to show their St. Anna pride and attend the 10:00 Mass. You can wear your uniform, or anything that shows your pride- St. Anna basketball uniform, cross country shirts, sweatshirts. We want everyone at church to see how proud you are to attend St. Anna School.
WINTER DRESS CODEPlease remember that we are in the winter dress season. With the current cold weather we have had indoor recess; however we will go outside if the temperature is 25 degrees or above (taking into consideration the wind chill). Please make sure your child is dressed warm enough in the event we do go outside for recess.
#MAKE A DIFFERENCEThe Year of Mercy is going strong at St. Anna School. The students are continuing to learn about both corporal and spiritual works of mercy. The second grade will focus on a corporal work of mercy as they collect items to help feed the hungry. Please read the letter from Mrs. Smith which has the items needed from each classroom.
