A message to our parish from our staff and families:
As a school community, we would like to take this opportunity to express our deep gratitude and appreciation for the love and support of our parish community. We are grateful to be here, grateful to be a part of the incredible things that God does for us, and grateful for the opportunity to be a parish school – supported by a dedicated and loving parish community.
As we head into our Christmas break, we ask that you pray for us as we will be praying for you all during this time of preparation and then celebration of the birth of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. It is because of him that we are here; able to spread the Gospel to our staff, students, and families; able to grow in our love for Christ, each other, and the greater community; able to learn together and teach each other. Our commitment is to train up our children in “faith formation, scholarship, leadership and service according to our Catholic values.” This is the commitment of the parish to the staff, children and families.
The new year will be a time of rebirth, a chance to renew our commitment to Christ, to each other, and to our ministry of St. Anne Catholic School. We appreciate the unique situation in which we continue to be able to have our students on campus because of our small class sizes, large classrooms, and our emergency childcare license. As we navigate through uncharted territory, we are so appreciative of the community members who aide and advise us, our committees who work tirelessly to keep the school running smoothly through every change, our grant write Susan Hermes and our early childhood teacher Mayra Mercado who continue to find grants for us during this financially-complicated time, and our parents who continue to support us through PTO and in other ways.
As we approach enrollment for the upcoming 21/22 school year (yes, it is crazy that we are already getting there!), our SAC and committees are working to provide our families with the very best programs for the next year. We will continue to stay small, focusing on each child’s individual learning style and needs. We will stay true to our mission and philosophy. We look forward to enrolling for next year and planning for another successful year for St. Anne Catholic School.
From all staff and volunteers, we wish you a safe, peaceful, season filled with love, growth, and renewal.
Mrs. Colleen Kotrba, principal
