Day of the Dead - Spanish: Día de Muertos - is a Mexican holiday celebrated throughout Mexico, in particular the Central and South regions, and by people of Mexican ancestry living in other places, especially the United States. It is acknowledged internationally in many other cultures. The multi-day holiday focuses on gatherings of family and friends to pray for and remember friends and family members who have died, and help support their spiritual journey.

Sacramental Prep
If you are interested in having your child participate in the sacraments of 1st Reconciliation and 1st Communion, and they are above second grade, please let me know so I can add them to the list. ALL students preparing for a sacrament this year MUST attend the Faith Formation which begins on October 8th. Therefore, you must be signed up for sacramental prep by October 6th.

Thank you to all the families who have completed their Free/Reduced Lunch Form. Hopefully your time and effort will give us more funding next year. If you have not completed your form, you have another week to turn it in. We have already increased the number of families that have qualified from last year, which gives us more title funds from the public school districts. Five students were awarded an Out of Uniform pass today for bringing in their forms.

If you ordered lunch already for October, please go back into your account and add lunch for October 5th and 19th. Hot Dog/Pizza Days have changed so you will need to order hot lunch on these two days. You will be issued a credit for these two days as well in November.

ATHLETIC NEWS
Hello Terrier Supporters!!!!!
 
The deadline for basketball is less than a month away. Hurry and get those registrations in!!! We would like to be able to secure our teams as soon as possible. Due to enrollment we may combine teams as a JV and Varsity as opposed to a team for each grade level.
 
As always, our programs are NO CUT!!! That means that every child has an opportunity to play. The Varsity levels (7th and 8th grades) playing time should be a reflection of ability, effort, attendance at practices, and com­mitment to the team, as it is more competitive and the children need to be able to show more responsibility and sportsmanship.
 
Registration forms (if you have not already been registered for a fall sport) can be found on the St. Annie's website.
 
If you have already submitted your registration paperwork then all you need do is contact us, pay the required fee, and if available to , volunteer to help us out at our home games!!!
 
If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact me directly, and as always. Thank you for your support of St. Anastasia and St. Anastasia Athletics!!! Go Terriers!!!!
 
Please, we need your help during volleyball games to keep our program running. You can bring your kids and help root on our teams!! High school kids that need service hours can also sign up. Don't know how to keep score, no worries, we can teach you!!! Thank you for your support!
