Dear Parent/Guardian:

Annunciation is continuously trying to improve the educational experience of its students. In response to the recent surveys completed by students and parents, we are sending a short form for you to complete and return to the school this week. Thanks for your input. We sent home Compacts last week.  If you have not returned yours, please do so. We are now required to have these on file.

Open House for new families interested in attending ACS next year is Tuesday, January 22nd at 6:00PM. Please share this information with your family and friends. Registration packets for returning students will be sent home on Tuesday.  No money is due at this time. Please complete the packet and return to ACS as soon as possible.

Grandparents’ Celebration is Friday, February 8, 2019 at 1:15 PM.  It begins in the church and continues in the school cafeteria with refreshments and pictures by Bert Burr. Room mothers serve as hostesses and coordinators of the refreshments. This is a very special event.  Please tell your child’s grandparents to mark the date on their calendars and plan to attend. More information will be sent closer to the date.

The Spring Auction is fast approaching.  Several classes have begun working on their class baskets, and we have sent requests for donations to previous donors.  I am asking each of you to help secure at least one item that can be used. Donations include gift certificates, household items, services of all types, decorative or sports items, outdoor equipment, flowers, admission in to entertainment venues, etc.

One item that is always popular in the live auction is the jar of scratch offs. These are acquired through Friday Free Dress Days.  Students can wear Free Dress on Friday for the donation of a Scratch Off of any amount. If you prefer, you can send a gift card. Last year, some families sent one gift card of a larger amount and counted it for more than one week.  This is the honor system. I trust that you will keep up with your donations since it benefits the school. This will begin next Friday and run for two weeks (January 25th and February 1st). Then we will resume after Grandparents’ Day (February 15th and 22nd).  

Since Friday is Parent Conference Day, tomorrow is Saints Day at ACS.  Everyone can wear Saints attire or Black and Gold with blue jeans. Geaux, Saints!
