St. Anne Catholic School and Preschool Academy
Dear St. Anne Parish and School Supporter,
This Thanksgiving, we are grateful to God to have our students back in school. After all the uncertainties of last spring and summer, we feel very blessed not only to have opened our doors again but also to have witnessed a 25% increase in student enrollment this year. While we remain prepared to provide remote learning when necessary, we have implemented many precautions to ensure our students’ health and safety during classroom instruction. Because of these precautions, school has looked a little different this year, but our students and staff have adjusted well. Another area of adjustment is the way we support our St. Anne Catholic School and Preschool Academy. While our student enrollment has increased, so too have our costs. Meanwhile, many of our annual fundraising efforts have been curtailed or cancelled by restrictions from the Coronavirus pandemic. So, adjust we must.
That is why we are inviting you to join us this Christmas and New Year in our Guardian Angel Appeal to show your support for St. Anne Catholic School and Preschool Academy. We have set an Appeal goal this year of raising $250,000. This Appeal will allow us as a Parish and School community to continue to provide an excellent Catholic education for our students, while keeping tuition costs affordable for our families. In gratitude for your support, we will remember you, our Guardian Angels, by praying for you every week at our School Mass and by displaying your name in the Parish and School lobby throughout the year.
In this giving season, we invite you to support our Guardian Angel Appeal with your fully tax deductible contribution. Your generosity to this Appeal will truly be a gift that keeps on giving to our students all year long. From our St. Anne Parish and School family to yours, may the Baby Jesus bless you this Christmas and New Year!
Fr. Timothy Draper, Pastor Mr. Michael Armato, Principal
