Welcome back! We hope you had a restful Easter recess! It is hard to believe it is May! On Sunday, Bishop Massa along with Fr. Grippo, Fr. Kareem, and Fr. Sal anointed the Annunciation school and Our Lady of Fatima religious education students with holy chrism. They excitedly took the next step in their faith in receiving the sacrament of Confirmation!

Dear Families:

            Today we keep in our thoughts and prayers all of the victims of September 11, 2001. May we continuously spread love to those surrounding us and keep the memories of those we have lost in our hearts forever.

            Our Pre-K3, Pre-4, and Kindergarten students have officially joined our school community and we warmly welcome them to the 2019-2020 school year! Our orientation days were filled with more smiles than tears as the students excitedly entered their new classrooms. Our teachers are so happy to begin implementing instruction on these grade levels – they have long awaited the arrival of your children. We are thrilled to have the opportunity to be a part of their early learning stages! Welcome to all of our new families and welcome back to our returning families. We are grateful for your partnership!

            The students in grades 1-8 have all transitioned beautifully into their new classes. They are working hard during their instructional periods already. In the coming weeks, they will delve deeply into content areas and will be engaging in many interactive lessons! I have enjoyed visiting their classrooms this week and am eager to continue visiting throughout the year!

            Just a reminder that we will be sending out correspondences on Wednesdays from now on. If you are interested in submitting a flyer, please be sure to submit by Monday evening.

            We welcome families to join us for our Back to School Night on Thursday, September 19, 2019 at 7:00PM. We will gather in the gym initially and then all will have the opportunity to visit classrooms and learn about your child(ren)’s daily schedule and routines. We look forward to sharing this evening with you!
