COLOR RUN POSTPONED
Ho hum.... Mother Nature does not want to cooperate this weekend. It looks like the weather will be muddy, wet and COLD. We want our students to enjoy the fun run and not trying to avoid the wet color stations as they are bundled up to stay warm.
We will hold the run next weekend on Saturday, October 8th at Saima Park. The race will begin promptly at 10:00.
If you did not sign up for the Color Run, but would like to- Please let Mrs. French or Mrs. Priddy know and they will add you to the list.
We welcome any additional volunteers also. Great opportunity for NJHS hours too!
Please remember to send in your labels with your potential sponsors email/mailing address. Each student that sends in their 10 earns an out of dress (can be shared with siblings)! The color run funds raised will be used to help purchase interactive smart board projectors for rooms 7 & 8.
We can now accept on-line donations for the Color Run- Share with Friends and Family!
SCHOOL SPIRIT WEAR ORDERS
Our St. Anna School Spirit Sweatshirts are in high demand! We have added a few new options this year (fleece and athletic jackets).
Please note that youth sizes run small- we have a few sweatshirts in the office for you to look at sizing.
You can order yours today by filling out and returning the order form. You can also pick up a form in the office. The deadline to order sweatshirts is Thursday, October 6th.
We have made additions to the school/gym uniforms!! Students in grades K-5 may now order navy polo shirts in addition to the current white and gray. They can also wear the khaki bottoms. Students in grades K-8 can also wear a navy St. Anna t-shirt for gym class. These additions are available at Allen's.

AFTER SCHOOL PROGRAM PICK UP
We are excited that after hours at St. Anna's is very busy and active. Many students are participating in after school programs and extended care. Safety is always our number one priority. Extended care students play on the playground in the afternoon whenever the weather cooperates. In order to keep them safe, we are asking after school program parents to park across the street and walk down to pick your child up whenever the parking lot is closed for extended care use.
We appreciate your cooperation in keeping everyone safe while allowing them to enjoy the outdoor playground in the afternoons.
VOLUNTEERS & CHAPERONES
We are always blessed to have parents and parishioners who volunteer at school or chaperone our field trips. We have the Preschool/Kindergarten Sholan Farm trip coming up soon... ALL volunteers and chaperones MUST have a completed CORI form (they are good for 2 years), you must complete the Safe Environment Course (we have an online option available) and you must also have your SAFIS- Fingerprinting completed as well.
This is for the safety of all our children. Please contact the office and we'd be happy to help you complete all of these components to get you on our volunteer/chaperone list!
October Lunch Menu
Orders can be placed until 7am on the day of the meal at www.orderlunches.com
Don't forget you can also order milk to go with home lunches- you can either order on-line or by sending in your milk money weekly or monthly to the office in an envelope marked with your child(ren)'s name. Please do not send in milk money daily- it is difficult to keep track of all those quarters in the office. Thank You.
If you need to set up an OrderLunches account- follow the instructions here!
