News & Notes
BACK-TO-SCHOOL NIGHT – AUGUST 27, 2015, 6:00 – 8:00 P.M.
Greetings St. Ann's families!
While we are all busy squeaking out the last precious moments of summer, we are obliged to recognize that it is time to start preparing for the coming school year. The first major opportunity to ease back in will take place at BACK-TO-SCHOOL NIGHT, THURSDAY, AUGUST 27, 6-8:00 PM IN THE SCHOOL GYM. During this fun evening you will not only have a chance to catch up with old friends and get your children situated in their classrooms, there will also be lots of opportunities to check things off your "to do" list. Here are some of the things you will be able to take care of on 8/27:
1. HOME & SCHOOL DUES
Each family is automatically a member of the H&S Association, which supports our children's academic, social and spiritual life at St. Ann's. The annual dues of $35/family is used to supplement such things as class field trips, library purchases and various classroom enhancements. Kristy Mueller, H&S Treasurer will be available to collect your dues. Checks can be made out to St. Ann's Home & School.
2. VOLUNTEER SIGN UPS
If you have not yet signed up for all of your volunteer points for the year or have questions about the available committee options, you can see Lynn Wood or Russ Horton, H&S Co-Chairs and sign up on-site. For a description of the committee positions, please click here. To sign up using Sign Up Genius, go here (search for login: hs&stanns.org).
Order forms and a limited number of wearable items will be available at Back-to-School night. In addition, if you have logo items your children have outgrown and you would like to consign those pieces at the event, please details below.
A limited number of scrip cards will be available for purchase for those remaining back-to-school purchases or you can order cards or set up a standing order for the year. To learn how setting up a scrip order can be a convenient way for you to shop and an incredibly simple way to support St. Ann's School, please click here.
5. TRASH TO TREASURE
If you have been saving items that can be turned into cash for St. Ann's over the summer, Thank you so much! Those items can be turned in on Back-to-School night or after school starts.
6. JUST COFFEE
Remember that the new school start time will be 7:50 a.m. this year. To help ease the transition and aid your efforts to fight the "sleeping in" habit of summer, consider purchasing coffee or tea or setting up a standing order from Just Coffee, a delicious Home & School Fundraising opportunity.
7. MARKET DAY
We regret to inform you that the Market Day grocery fundraising program has been discontinued by the company. While St. Ann's school and parish families enjoyed the benefit of this yummy monthly fundraiser, it will no longer be available. We are currently researching alternative grocery programs fundraising options. Stay tuned for more details.
8. ICE CREAM!
Finally, when all your back-to-school tasks are completed, enjoy ice cream sundaes in the gym and re-connect with friends and take the opportunity to meet and welcome our new St. Ann's families who will be joining us this year!
