The St. Anne School boys’ lacrosse team completed its season with their final game in the South Mountain A Division on Tuesday afternoon.

I am very proud of all our players for their integrity and respect for the game,” said the team’s coach, Mr. Greg Lay. “I would like to thank all of the parents for their support, encouragement, and presence. Thank you all for a FUN season!”
Tuesday’s St. Anne Giving Day was a great success! The goal: 24 gifts in 24 hours to unlock a $10,000 gift from a generous Lower School family. There was excitement in the air and a buzz around campus throughout the day. In a span of 24 hours, the St. Anne Giving Day brought in 29 gifts totaling $5,331. Twenty-six of those donors were first-time contributors to the St. Anne Knights’ Fund. With the goal met, the St. Anne Knights’ Fund will receive the additional $10,000 gift, making the total for the day $15,331.
The St. Anne Tech Committee, started in 2017, was formed to educate the St. Anne School community on Internet safety and being a responsible citizen, in terms of Internet usage. The committee is comprised of a community of board members, teachers, staff, and parents who use technology to learn, lead, and operate with excellence. It is a strategic committee of the Board that is charged with advising the school, as well as its planning and implementation of technology, throughout the school environment—with teachers and students and in the classroom.
On Tuesday, St. Anne students were officially 101 days smarter. Grade 1 celebrated by dressing like 101 year olds. Students participated in activities using the number 101; they walked 101 steps; read as many words as they could in 101 seconds; plus, they jumped as many jumps, tallied as many tallies, and blinked as many blinks in 101 seconds. The students also wrote 101 words. A great way to celebrate the 101st day of school!
