WOW! The year will be coming to an end on Thursday, May 23! On this day, we will transport all of the children to St. Francis of Assisi for our final Mass honoring our departing 6th grade students. Please make plans to attend the Mass with your child as dismissal will be directly from St. Francis following the Mass. Remember there is no ACE on this day, so you must come to St. Francis to pick up your child who will be dismissed directly from Mass. Please refer to Edline for the carpool procedure for dismissal following the Mass at St. Francis.
Each day parents and community supporters partner with St. Anthony Catholic School to create a warm, nurturing environment for our students to learn and play. Caught in the act of service this week included the many volunteers assisting with the rainforest transformation, grant assistance, library assistance and more! Thank you for your gift of time and talent!
Upcoming volunteer opportunities include assisting with Cajun Fest (contact Michele Warnock firstname.lastname@example.org| 601.613.4653) to volunteer your time.

Although we “tested” a charitable dining out event last week, we still have our last Papa John’s Pizza Night still scheduled for Tuesday, May 14. This will be the last evening this year to take the night off from cooking and treat your family to Papa John’s Pizza from the Ridgeland store while supporting the Student Council of St. Anthony. When you order Papa John’s Pizza this Tuesday, the Student Council will receive 20% of all St. Anthony sales! Just remember to tell them that you are supporting St. Anthony Catholic School when you place your order – Papa John’s (601)853-1951. By the way, if you have a profession that routinely supplies lunches for offices – this offer is good during the day as well! The Student Council thanks you for your support!
Not only was everything that God created “GOOD!”, but also was the PreK4 production of “In the Beginning, A Children’s Creation Concert.” Family members and guests were delighted to see the works of God come into being. From “light” to Adam and Eve, our preschoolers confidently sung and told the story of how our world was created. Congratulations to our PreK4 students for a great stage debut!

Blessed with sunny weather and wonderful comradery among players, the 5th Annual Eagle Scramble at Annandale Golf Club was a success! Presented by Mississippi Sports Medicine & Orthopaedic Center, this year’s tournament boasted the addition of the Eagles’ Nest offering players additional refreshments and fun as they played the course. Thank you to all who assisted, especially Co-Chairmen Michael Kimbrell and Dave Clements, in creating the success of the Eagle Scramble including sponsors, players, and volunteers. We look forward to creating another great tournament next March!
