School News

From the Desk of Mrs. Schweitzer

Well, we made it! It is hard to believe that we have reached our final days of the 2021-2022 school year. Our theme this year has been: “One in the Spirit.” I hope that as we journeyed through the school year and met our many remarkable holy people (Saints and Blesseds), you were able to take time to speak with your children about the fact that, although these people are remarkable, God calls us all to be saints. We are ALL created in the likeness and image of God, and no matter where in the world we may be from, we all should strive to be holy people and to love one another as our good God loves us!

Blessings,
Mrs. Schweitzer

IMPORTANT REMINDERS
 Each student should bring their own water bottle. A refilling station is available.
 After school, students should remain in the sight of parents. Playing on the railings, walls, or climbing trees are hazardous activities that could lead to injury. Our insurance provider discourages any activities that put students at such risk.
 Please wait until all students have been dismissed to depart the parking lot after school. Thanks for your patience!
 Adoration of The Blessed Sacrament is held EVERY THURSDAY from 8:30 – 4:30 in Church. Please be mindful of this after school and do not allow the children to play in the Church yard or on the church steps after school on these days so as not to disrupt any parishioners at Adoration.

UPCOMING EVENTS

VIRTUS is the brand name that identifies best practice programs designed to help prevent wrongdoing and promote "rightdoing" within religious organizations. The VIRTUS programs empower organizations and people to better control risk and improve the lives of all those who interact with the Church. “Protecting God's Children® for Adults” is training conducted by VIRTUS® certified facilitators on the prevention of child sexual abuse. The training makes participants aware of the signs of child sexual abuse, the methods and means by which offenders commit abuse, and five easy steps one can use to prevent child sexual abuse. The Diocese requires all adults who enter the school building or are around school children in any capacity, must be in full compliance with the charter. This requires completed paperwork on file with the Diocese, attendance at a one-time Virtus Live Training session and maintenance of monthly online bulletins. More information can be found at www.virtus.org. A list of the live training dates in our area is attached.
In summary, ALL ADULTS who would like to be involved with our school children must be Virtus certified and in compliance with the National Charter, “Protecting God’s Children” program. This means that all volunteers are required to be VIRTUS trained -- this includes classroom volunteers, field trip sponsors, room mothers, cafeteria workers, coaches, and substitutes, etc. New parents wishing to be VIRTUS trained should register online at www.virtus.org. If you are transferring from another parochial school, please make sure you add St. Anthony School to your VIRTUS account. If you already have an account with VIRTUS and it has been suspended or if you have any questions, please contact Mrs. Bottom.
