Pre-K November Newsletter


NOVEMBER 1, 2016

Dear Parents,


As we enter into the holiday season, we all should give thought to the many blessings we have received. At St. Ann school, we are thankful for allowing us be a small part of your child’s life.

In the spirit of providing to those less fortunate than us, we are asking for your support of the St. Vincent De Paul Society of our Church, St. Ann, who will be delivering baskets of food to the poor and needy of our Parish/community this Thanksgiving season. Please send donations during this month until November 23.

These are the following food items that will be used to make up these baskets:

boxes of instant mashed potato, boxes of turkey stuffing, cans of cranberry sauce

canned vegetables, cans of turkey gravy, can of yams, apple cider or apple juice. If you would like to send in cookies, candy, nuts, coffee, tea, canned milk, or any additional items, please feel free to do so.

All donations will be greatly appreciated.

Thank you for your generosity and support.


Happy Thanksgiving to all!


Love and prayers,

 Sr. Trinh Nguyen (LHC)

Sr. Huong Vu (LHC)
