Our Alumni Come Back For A Visit
The tradition continues! Each year our graduating 8th grade students write letters to themselves and give to our school for safe keeping. Then each year in April, they return to SACS to read their letters and add to them. It is wonderful to see so many of our students return for this great tradition and see the joy on their faces as they share their thoughts and dreams with their fellow classmates.
Colds and illness are a common occurrence in schools. Please notify teachers if your child has been exposed to a communicable disease. If a child has a fever above 100 degrees, they are not allowed in school until they have been fever free for at least 24 hours. If antibiotics are required, they must wait 48 hours before returning to school. As a courtesy to other children and parents, please keep ill children at home so they may rest and fully recover.

JUNIOR HIGH STUDENTS AT FEEDING SOUTH FLORIDA
Saint Anthony Catholic School Junior High students and parents had the opportunity to render some community service last Saturday, 3/5, at Feeding South Florida – a food bank serving Palm Beach, Broward, Miami-Dade, and Monroe Counties. Volunteers from our school worked with volunteers from other schools, private agencies, and some families who volunteer regularly. They helped inspect and check recovered food, sorted out food and categorized them with like items, and repackaged food into boxes for redistribution to recipients in communities all over South Florida. Our students were happy to do such service and they felt the importance of giving a helping hand for the good of the community. Saint Anthony's Youth Ministry is planning to organize another opportunity in the near future.
