2019-2020 Registration and Scholarships
Registration for the next school year is now open.  The registration fee will stay the same at $310 per student. Please plan ahead - this year a late fee of $150 per student will apply to all current students registering after April 1st.  All scholarship applications along with 2018 tax and income verification are also due on April 1st through FACTS Grant & Aid, under the FACTS tab in FACTS Family Online (formerly ParentsWeb) in order to be considered for SEEDS or St. Anthony Scholarships.  If you need assistance with your registration or scholarship application, please do not hesitate to contact Kelly Meyer at 209-392-9068.

Why a late fee this year, you know I'm coming back? At the end of April we try to purchase curriculum for the following school year. When we don't have firm numbers for our classes, it makes it very difficult to order textbooks and licenses in a timely matter. In addition, by ordering curriculum in early spring we are able to receive considerable discounts. Rather than raising tuition prices to offset the discounts, we have chosen to apply a late fee. Help us keep tuition costs down by registering early.
Auction Dinner Tickets
Remember you receive two Auction Dinner tickets with your paid PTG dues (in addition to $90 in vouchers for additional auction dinner tickets or tickets to other events). If you haven't returned your ticket reservation yet, please contact the office TODAY and let us know if you will be attending. Tickets ARE NOW available to be picked up in the school office.  See Mrs. K.

Spirit Day
This Friday is Spirit Day.  St. Vincent de Paul is in need of soup and instant potaotes.  Student wear uniform bottoms with a CYO shirt, Havest Festival shirt, or a spirit wear top.
New Orange Cones in Parking Lot
You may have noticed the new cones in the parking lot this morning.  The driveway between the parish office and the school is not to be used as a school exit and all cars should follow our normal drop off/pick up route using the entrance and exit on Sutter Avenue.  We have had issues with drivers not understanding that incoming traffic has the right of way into the parish office parking lot. Thank you for your understanding.
Upcoming Change in 19/20
Dear Parents - as you are aware our 3rd grade teacher, Mrs. Leonardo is pregnant with her first baby and is due in June. She has just recently let us know that she plans to stay home with the baby once he is born and it is with regret that she will not be returning next year.  With that in mind, Mrs. Debbie Fox has let me know she would very much like to return to the classroom here at St. Anthony's and I have asked her to return as our third grade teacher.  Please, when you see her, welcome her home.

As of February 25, 2019 Save Mart will no longer be participating in the Shares powered by eScrip program.  Money accrued from Shares will be remitted soon after in accordance with the program.  Save Mart has chosen to focus directly on relationships between local stores and their communities.

What does this mean to you? In the past SCRIP users have been able to "double dip" their rewards by receiving 2% for their SCRIP purchase and 2% for the Shares program for a 4% return to your profit account.  SCRIP users will still receive their 2% for purchasing Save Mart SCRIP from St. Anthony's School.

As a reminder, we are open every morning for SCRIP purchases.  If you can't make it between 8 and 9, consider dropping an order off in the afternoon and picking it up the next day.  Stop in and let us help you make your profit.
