    NOTE- Finals will be taken as a section except math which is split into 3 sections. We want our math teachers to specifically give their final, so we had to modify so Mrs. Steege and Mrs. Makowski could test their sections. Due to this, we also will be testing Math 6Y on Tuesday with Mrs. Steege.

    Study guides will be available to the students by Friday 11/14 and online for you to have at home.

  • 11/07/2014 Vision for the Future


    Principal Cassidy's News & Notes, Weekender

    Last year, we completed our two year process for renewal of our Accreditation through MNSAA. In June, we received official notice that our accreditation is renewed for another seven years! This is exciting and an affirmation that we are doing great work at Annunciation School.

    This process also requires us to look at the strengths and our challenges and create a strategic plan with a vision for our school over the next seven years. While we have done great work, we can’t rest – education today requires us to continually evaluate what we do, how we do it, and what is best for our students.

    Through the work of our staff, parents, community leaders and the strategic planning steering committee, we wrote our strategic plan with a vision for our future. This plans calls us to build on our rich tradition of 90 years in Catholic education in our community. It also calls for us to be bold and look for innovative ways to educate the students of today, ensuring they reach their fullest potential.

    Our first strategic objective is: “Complete a visioning project that positions Annunciation School as a Catholic leader, recognized for educating the whole child”. To begin our plan, we have a visioning team that will lead the work of this first objective by learning what we need to educate the children of today and what tomorrow’s world will require. Then the team will look for innovative models or best practices in education to see would be the best fit for Annunciation School as we strive to reach this objective.

    If you are interested in being a part of the visioning team and this exciting work, we need 1-2 more members to join us. Please contact me if you are interested. We will keep you posted on our strategic plan as we bring it to life!

    “Share the Spirit” of Annunciation School

    Hopefully, you received the recent eblast with the information on our “Share the Spirit” campaign. The marketing committee and school staff have been hard at work finding new ways to get the word out about our great school. Annunciation School is an amazing place the offers a vibrant community and environment for learning with strong faith and academics – and we  are continuing to explore new ways to be even better for our students, as we stated above.

    We want to share this message with others and fill every seat in our school! Word of mouth is the best way to let people know about Annunciation School and all we have to offer. No one has a better story to share than our parents.

    In the flyer, you will find information about “Share the Spirit” – we are asking you to invite prospective families to attend learn more about Annunciation -  tour the school, come for a visit or attend an event. If the new family registers for next school year in grades K-8, you will receive a $500 tuition credit applied next year for your referral. See the flyer for details and a form to complete.

    Thanks for helping us “Share the Spirit” of Annunciation School! We have much to celebrate and share!

    Principal Cassidy's News & Notes, Weekender

    “Do not be afraid….take courage, I am here.” Matthew 14:27

    As parents, I know you can’t be here each day to experience the life of our school, so I just wanted to take a minute to share some special moments from this week that demonstrated our mission alive:

    First, our school mass on Thursday ended with our song, “Send Down the Fire of Your Spirit”. Standing in the church, hearing the voices of the children singing with so much passion and energy was truly the Spirit shining through our children. It was a wonderful moment and confirms the special opportunity we have as a Catholic school to celebrate our faith together.

    Second was our grandparents’ tea which took place Thursday. What a wonderful moment to look out in the auditorium to see the many grandparents and friends who came to celebrate with our second graders and our school. These are people who have lived and modeled their faith in such an authentic and strong way, that they inspired the next generation to share this with their children as well. It is our privilege at Annunciation School to carry on and help form this next generation of children who can someday do the same for their children. The second graders sang and performed so well, ending with a song that brought tears to everyone’s eyes. Moments like this remind me how special our school is and how much we are blessed!

    Principal Cassidy's News & Notes, Weekender

    Communication and Partnerships

    At Annunciation School, community and partnerships are key elements of our mission. To be successful, we rely on many members of our community to help us reach our goals. Parents, students, teachers, staff, parishioners, and others contribute to the work of developing the young people in our school. Without the work of so many, we could not accomplish all that we do! Thanks to those who step up and help make Annunciation School the vibrant, successful school it is.

    Partnerships are another key to our success. We know that you, as parents, are the primary educators of your children. The work we do builds on the foundation your family has laid and helps fulfill the vision and dreams you have for your children. To do this well, we need to be in communication with you. One of the most important communications is our parent/teacher conferences.

Our Annunciation Stars have videos on the site along with information on event tickets and more. Take a look – it is fun and exciting to see!

    MAP Testing begins Monday:

    One of our goals from our accreditation and review of our programs, was the need to identify a comprehensive assessment for our school. The NWEA Measures of Academic Progress® (MAP®) test has been chosen as the tool for students in grades K-8. We have chosen to use one test for all students so we have benchmark data starting fall of kindergarten all the way through grade 8. We will be testing this year in Reading, Math, and Language Usage.

    Parent Information Nights

    We had our second parent information night this week for our kindergarten – fifth grade parents. Thank you to all who attended. These information sessions are so important to help us build the partnership we have with you to educate and develop your children. Communication is always a key to any successful partnership, and we continue to offer many options and look for ways to improve our communication. Your participation makes it successful! I hope that these sessions provided you important information regarding your child’s classroom and teacher and allowed you to meet other parents in your child’s class. Most of all, I hope you felt the excitement and energy that has filled our school since school has begun! We truly do have a vibrant community and you have helped make it special. I look forward to seeing you at more events this year.

    SeptemberFest

    Speaking of community……what a great way to support Annunciation parish and school by attending this weekend’s SeptemberFest! The weekend is filled with fun events, food, games, prizes, and more. This is also a great way to meet new families and spend time with others in building our “family” here at Annunciation. Good luck to the many school wiffle ball teams, too! Hope to see you there!

    The year is off to a great start. Thanks to all the parents for their feedback and questions. I welcome any questions or comments as we work together to make Annunciation School the very best place for all! Hope to see you at Septemberfest!

  • 09/11/2014 Children’s Liturgy of the Word Begins!


    Church News

    It’s time for Children’s Liturgy of the Word to begin a brand new year on Sunday, September 28th, during the 8:45 and 10:30 Masses.

    So what is Children’s Liturgy of the Word? It might help to start with what it’s not:

    A free baby sitting service? - no
    A way to give kids an entertaining break from Mass? - no
    A classroom activity? - no

    When our young children leave the Gathered Assembly they go to a special room where they do on their level the same thing that the rest of us who remain in the main part of Church are doing. They experience the Word of God proclaimed to them in a way that is meaningful to children. Just as we have a homily – Breaking Open the Word – given by a priest of deacon, they have a presider who Breaks Open the Word for them in a way that they can understand as children. God is present and speaks to them through Scripture, with a translation appropriate for children. The presider leads them in a sharing that brings home the meaning of the Gospel to their young lives. Our Children’s Liturgy of the Word serves the needs of children from kindergarten through grade 3. Would you like to join our team of presiders? Contact Terry Heer at 612/702-1552 or theer@annunciationmsp.org.

    Stewardship Tip:  SeptemberFest ZEE WEE.  Next weekend is our annual Church festival and ZERO WASTE EVENT (or Zee Wee!)  Once again, the goal is to either compost or recycle everything possible, leaving less than 5% going to our city’s incinerator.  Please do your share to make this a reality!  What do you need to do?  When you walk up to the waste containers, PLEASE PAUSE AND SORT as you do at home:  1) COMPOSTABLE?  ALL of the beverage cups, forks, spoons, knives and plates are compostable foodware.  (They look plastic but are made of corn.)  All food waste and soiled paper products are also compostable.  2) RECYCLABLE?  Glass & plastic bottles, aluminum, and other plastic containers and paper are recyclable. (Think of your Single-Stream Recycling at home) and 3) TRASH?  Candy wrappers, chip bags and plastic bags are for the trash.  Enjoy SeptemberFest, but please be thoughtful at the waste containers!  Peace & Justice Committee

  • 09/05/2014 A New School Year and a New Theme


    Principal Cassidy's News & Notes, Weekender

    We begin school year 2014-2015 with a new theme – and a focus on not being afraid, being courageous and trusting that God is walking with us always. Our staff and teachers began workshop week with a talk from Father Jim on this theme. He emphasized how important it is for us to trust God, even when the “waters seem rough” or the boat appears to be tipping. As the apostle Peter learned, if we keep our focus on Jesus, we have nothing to fear.

    This is what we want to teach our students as well. Often, we have our best learning through our failures and struggles. It takes courage to try something new, to trust that we are on the right path, even when we slip. As a Catholic school, we can share the promise that God is with us – He is here! What a great lesson to learn for life. Together, we begin this year with the faith and courage to persevere, to take risks, learn new things, fall and know God is there to help us back up. And in the end, we will be wiser, stronger, and more faithful from the journey!
