Wednesday Weekly – May 9, 2018

May 9, 2018

Dear Families,

Saturday evening’s gala was a wonderful celebration of our school’s 75th anniversary!  The room was overflowing with love, gratitude and pride for Annunciation School.  It was so nice to see alumni, former parents, teachers and current parents mixing and mingling.  What struck me most though, was everyone’s unyielding commitment to Annunciation School and Catholic education, now that’s to be celebrated!

Special thanks to The AES Crestwood Foundation board and our Home School Association for their tireless efforts to create such a marvelous evening. So many were responsible for the success of the night, whether you donated an auction item, won an auction item, donated signage, donated to the fund the foundation appeal, sponsored a religious guest, underwrote the cost of vendors or took a journal add you helped make the night a success!  Thank you for your generosity!  Please see the attached letter from The AES Crestwood Foundation, board president, Laura Finneran.
