St. Anne's Parents' Association

All St. Anne's parents are members of our parents’ association! Our purpose is to enhance the mission of our school by providing support to faculty, educational programs, and social activities at St. Anne's. SAPA strives to be inclusive of all of our families, while fostering a close-knit community among students, parents, faculty, and staff.  We are completely volunteer-based and our organization and community depend on parents like you!

Please email us with your suggestions for events or to volunteer!

Barn Hill Preserve Safari and Car Costume Contest!

We are sad to miss our traditional Fall Fest event this year, but we are excited to announce a DRIVE-THRU SAFARI for St. Anne’s families on Friday, October 30 from 3 - 5 PM EST (note:  school is closed this day).  This event is FREE for our community. For those who would like to contribute, we are suggesting a donation of $20 per car to ensure we can do more great activities throughout the year!

As part of this event, families are invited to “dress-up” their cars to participate in a car costume contest! Prize categories include:  scariest, most-creative, and costume that best sums up 2020 (please keep it G-rated)! As you decorate please keep in mind that to fully experience the animals in the safari you will need to be able to see through and roll down your car windows!

To learn more about the animals from Barn Hill Preserve, please visit their website:
