Today, you will receive the registration form for school year 2019-20.  Please return it as soon as possible. There is NO money due at this time.  We simply need to begin planning for next school year. We are grateful for the opportunity to work with your family this year, and we hope that you will choose to send your child back to Annunciation for another year of quality education in a Catholic, Christ-centered school environment.

This Friday is the first Scratch Off/Gift Card Free Dress day to secure Scratch Offs and Gift Cards that will be used at the Auction on March 12th. Tickets for the Spring Auction are available for purchase in the office. Cost is $50 per couple/$30 per individual.  Invite friends and family to come out and have a fun filled evening with delicious food and lively entertainment.

Next week is Catholic Schools Week across America.  There are a variety of activities planned at ACS. On Wednesday, January 30th, Kindergarten will celebrate Mardi Gras with the annual Mother Goose and the Krewe of Make Believe Parade beginning at 1:30 in Goodyear Park. MCCA Royalty will select the Children’s Coronation Royalty at the conclusion of the parade. Join us for the festivities. Thursday, January 31st is the 100th Day of School.  Teachers have age appropriate events that will go on throughout the day.  Next Thursday is also “Buddy Breakfast”. All students need to bring breakfast food to be eaten with students from another class.  (You only need to bring food for your own child.) Friday February 1st will be our second Scratch Off/Gift Card Friday.  In lieu of the Saints Pep Rally that I had planned, it will be appropriate to wear our Black and Gold one more time to show support of our team and celebrate a wonderful football season.

Thanks for responding to our recent survey.  I received 46 responses. Thirty one parents said that their child talked about Crusader Connections.  This activity occurs monthly. We just had a session on Monday. So ask your child about it. The students report that they look forward to working with another adult advocate and students from outside his/her class. The most used forms of communication were the Remind app, the weekly “pink” letter, and social media. Sixty-three percent of respondents said “no” to a PTO, and many who responded “yes” said they would not personally join.  We will revisit this next school year. Although we do not have an official PTO, parents always get together when there is an expressed need to plan events, etc. The room mothers do an outstanding job of keeping activities organized. I sincerely appreciate your input and all you do to support our school.
