Class of 2021 Reflections!

On Friday, June 11, 2021, twenty-four students graduated from St. Anne’s Episcopal School. Families, faculty, and staff gathered in front of the red doors to celebrate the Class of 2021.

Shared below are the reflections written by each graduate about their fondest memories and life lessons learned during their time at St. Anne’s.  We wish the Class of 2021 much success in the years to come!  #HeronProud



Field Day 2021 Highlights 

The word we would use to summarize Field Day 2021 would be ... WET! The herons had a blast playing all the events including the dunk tank, water balloon pop, sack races, and more! See the highlights below.

3rd Graders Explore Liquid Nitrogen

Mr. Masi, the father of Dominic, shared his chemistry knowledge with third graders with some fun experiments. He used liquid nitrogen to freeze roses and the children were able to crush the brittle petals and let them thaw in their hands. He also used liquid nitrogen to shrink helium balloons and make ice cream!
