$1 Dollar Jeans Day
Friday, May 19th, bring in a dollar to have a jeans day. All proceeds will go to purchase new recess equipment/toys for St. Anne Catholic Grade School. This executive order was proposed and approved by principal of the day Dominic Rea.

All grades are welcome to participate. Any class that has a scheduled jeans day from silent auction does not need to bring a donation.

Please view letter from Macomb County Health Dept. regarding students entering the 7th grade.

Canned Food Drive
In order to extend the grace of the Easter season to those in need, the Sixth Grade will be organizing a canned food drive, which will continue through the end of the school year. All grades are encouraged to participate by bringing canned and non-perishable food items and leaving them in one of two collection points: in the Elementary School Building outside the office, and in the Junior High building, at the top of the main stairs.

What should you bring?

Any canned goods (preferably cans with pop tops)
Other non-perishable foods (pasta, fruit cups, ramen noodles, etc.)
Snack bars, peanut butter, jelly.
(Please do not give old, expired items that have been collecting dust in the back of your pantry. Also, items that require a lot of cooking and preparation–e.g. dry beans, rice–are not encouraged.)
All items will be distributed directly to those in need in Southwest Detroit through the ministry of Orthodox Detroit Outreach. For more information, visit orthodoxdetroitoutreach.org.
