  • 07/16/2017 2nd Grade Grandparents & VIP Tea


    School Events, Weekender

    One of Annunciation's special traditions is the 2nd grade Grandparent and Very Important Person (VIP) Tea.  This year's celebration will be on Thursday, October 5th.  The Tea will start at 1:30 p.m. in the school auditorium.  We celebrate this special occasion with music, treats and socializing.  We understand that not all of our 2nd graders have a grandparent or grandparents who are able to attend; we encourage these students to invite a Very Important Person (VIP) to join us.  In addition to the afternoon tea, families, grandparents, and VIPs are welcome to join our school and church community for mass at 8:15 a.m in the church.  Invitations for the Tea will be mailed in September.

  • 07/14/2017 “Let God Set Free”: We’re So Grateful for Your Support!


    Church News

    I would like to express thanks to you for all the support notes and prayer that our participants experienced from you, our Annunciation parishioners, during the June 2-3 retreat for the 11 staff members of Breaking Free (St. Paul) and Terebinth Refuge (St. Cloud). Both of these organizations are dedicated to assisting women in rebuilding lives after escaping sex trafficking. These women’s hearts were deeply touched by all your prayer for them and the letters of support they received from many of you. One of the retreatants has all her notes posted in her office space so that she can constantly be reminded of your support. Terry Forliti, Executive Director of Breaking Free, in her amazement for your thoughtfulness said, “We don’t get thank-yous for what we do – ever!”

    This retreat was made possible through some very generous donations from the Minnesota Vikings, Mary’s Pence and other anonymous donors. Please check out the article about this retreat in the July 14th edition of the Catholic Spirit: http://thecatholicspirit.com/news/local-news/religious-sisters-host-retreat-women-working-trafficking-victims/

    Annunciation School is a vibrant, Catholic school, serving students from preschool through 8th grade. We are seeking a qualified, passionate educator for the position of School Dean. The role of the School Dean is to assist the principal in meeting the strategic goals of the school, supporting teachers and students while helping create a positive environment for teaching and learning. Working closely with teachers, the Dean also supports the academic, behavioral, and special needs of students.

    Working with the School Principal, the School Dean serves as an instructional leader in the planning, coordination, and administration of school activities and programs, including curriculum, instruction, assessment, student conduct, attendance, and support services for students including RTI and 504/IEP processes.

    As an International Baccalaureate candidate school, Annunciation is seeking educators who will help prepare our students to become active, caring, lifelong learners who demonstrate respect for themselves and others. We focus on the development of the whole child as an inquirer, in and out of the classroom. IB educators are open-minded, life-long learners who bring a global perspective to the learning experience. Collaboration with the team of teachers and specialists is critical to our success. The School Dean will assist in the development and implementation of the IB program within the school.

    The Dean will be a member of the school’s pedagogical leadership team, working with the principal and other team members to ensure the enhancement of the teaching and learning to address the overarching mission of the school. Using a constructivist approach, the PLT studies best practices and then advocates for the implementation of those practices in line with the mission of the school.
