Preparing for the Start of School
Throughout the summer, many resources become available online to help you prepare for the start of school. You will be updated when these resources are available by email. Feel free to browse Parents>School Year Resources for examples of last year's resources.
Upon enrollment, you will begin to receive our e-newsletter, The Constellation. The Communications Office publishes The Constellation weekly throughout the school year and monthly during the summer. All emails from the Communications Office will come from the email address creiss@St.AnnesSchool.org. Please add this email address to the safe sender list to ensure you receive emails from our school. You may also want to check your spam or junk mail folder periodically during this time to make sure other important emails from the domain @St.AnnesSchool.org are not being blocked. If you have any questions regarding communications, please feel free contact Laura Steinen, Director of Communications at 410.263.8650 ext 221.
Our school website, St.AnnesSchool.org, is full of resources for your family. The website is where you can find the information you need about programs at the school, as well as keep up-to-date with calendars and announcements, which are updated frequently. Most information for parents can be found underneath the Parents link that is accessible on every page of the website. Here you will find information about everything from our Afternoon Enrichment Program (AEP) to Uniforms to Extended Care to Parents Association Lunch Program to Transportation. We have also provided a list of Quick Links at the bottom of this page to give you easy access to the most popular pages for new parents.
