This Week in Review:

Dear Families,           

       I want to begin by thanking all of you for your thoughtful gifts and warm wishes that were extended to me for Christmas.  I am reminded everyday of just how special the Annunciation school community is and I feel very fortunate to be a part of it.  I am certain that together we will make 2019 a truly memorable year for our students. 
       Although the first week back from vacation was short, it was busy and productive for everyone at school.  The children appeared happy and refreshed after their Christmas recess and they eagerly engaged in classwork and activities. 
      A schedule has been created that outlines when mid-term exams will be administered to our Middle School students (Grades 6-8). Please see the attachment below.  Study guides will be posted on Google Classroom by Tuesday, January 8,2019. 
      This morning’s Mass with Fr. Kareem highlighted the life of Sister Elizabeth Ann Seton since today is her Feast Day.  Did you know that she is credited for initiating Catholic parochial education in the U.S.? 
     The Feast of the Epiphany will be celebrated on Sunday, January 6th.  Therefore, please plan to attend Mass with your children to reinforce the importance of this very special day.  I am including an attachment about The Epiphany that you might care to share with your children.
