ANNOUNCEMENTS TO WRAP UP THE SCHOOL YEAR:

Happy end of the 2019-2020 school year! The faculty and staff appreciate all you have done to make Non-Traditional Instruction go smoothly!

Our Bible verse this week comes from John 3:17 – “For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world might be saved through him.

Our final day for the school year was Friday, May 15th.

NON-TRADITIONAL OLYMPICS is complete! Our winning families of $20 Amazon gift cards are: the Ising family, the Estes Family, and the Landers family.

WE SAY GOODBYE TO…… Mrs B. and Mr. Dan. We can’t thank them enough for all they have done for St. Anthony over the last two years!
……. Mrs. Wynn, who has decided it’s time to retire. We love you, and we are truly grateful for all on the long hours you spent planning our musical, Grandparents’ Day performances, and other fun music activities. You will be truly missed.
……. Jessica Mendez who is graduating from 8th Grade and moving on to high school. We wish her much luck and success.

CONGRATULATIONS TO OUR KINDERGARTNERS….. who are moving on to first grade! This first year of elementary school will be one for them to remember! We can’t wait to see them next year as 1st GRADERS!

PLEASE KEEP THE FACULTY AND STAFF IN YOUR PRAYERS AS WE TRY TO REGROUP, REORGANIZE, AND HOPEFULLY PLAN TO OPEN FOR INSTRUCTION IN AUGUST. HAVE A WONDERFUL SUMMER!!!

Blessings,

Mrs. Schweitzer


School Update –
As we make plans for a return to school in the fall, we have incurred a number of expenses related to COVID-19 best practices for safety and cleaning. So far, these unplanned purchases include individual desks, masks and gloves, and additional cleaning supplies. These expenses will likely increase as we receive further instruction from state and local officials to bring the students back to school. If anyone would like to contribute to these expenditures, please place your donation in the collection basket in an envelope marked "St. Anthony School," or contact the School or Parish Office. Thank you for your continued support of St. Anthony School.

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 importance of the National Charter “Protecting God’s Children” program was again highly emphasized at our opening diocesan principal’s meeting. Simply stated – 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.
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.
