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.
Volunteer parent, Jennifer Warriner, spends her morning teaching Artsense with her son Bryce’s Kindergarten class. She assisted the students in making faces out of model clay.
What goes up, must come down! Parent volunteer, Trey Endt, assists in taking down the spectacular rainforest which transformed our hallways.
Please check your child’s backpack this coming week for the invitation to the Volunteer Appreciation Crawfish Boil set for Friday, May 3, beginning at 4:00 p.m. Your volunteer hours are valued by the Parent Association and the community of St. Anthony!

2012 Eagle Warrior Dash T-Shirts on sale now!
St. Anthony Catholic School is all about being healthy. We have a couple of groups that are putting that love into action to help two great charities. First, Mrs. Cathy Lutz has put together a STA staff Relay for Life Team. This organization through the American Cancer Society is an overnight relay-style race. While team members take turns walking, supporters camp out around a track to cheer them on to celebrate the lives of people who have battled cancer, remember loved ones lost, and fight back against the disease. The event will take place at Liberty Park in Madison from 6 p.m. until 2 a.m. on Friday, April 20. Come out to show your support.
And if you want to have a little more of an adventure… join several St. Anthony parents and staff members in the 2012 Warrior Dash the next day! This is an ultimate 5K race that supports St. Jude Children’s Hospital. We have several “Eagle Warriors” signed up throughout the day but there are still many waves left. Thousands of warriors will be on site in Jackson on Saturday, April 21. We will be ordering “Eagle Warrior” Dash t-shirts for those that wish to run with us! Please call Michelle Glorioso at 601-607-7054 to find out how to get yours. T-shirts are $18 and orders are due by April 4.
St. Anthony Catholic School first grade students proudly showcased their talents as they performed “One Nation Under God.” During this performance guests not only learned about the symbols of America, but also had the opportunity to show appreciation to the men and women in our audience who have served our nation in various capacities of the United States military. Thank you to all of our St. Anthony family who have served our great country!
