Ribbon Cutting and Grand Opening

On Thursday, November 21st Annunciation Catholic School (ACS) will hold the much anticipated ribbon cutting ceremony and reception for the new building expansion. Talks of expanding the campus have been ongoing for several years due to increasing enrollment every year. ACS enrollment has almost doubled in the last seven years, and the school has seen a 97% increase in that time. After much discussion and research, school administration decided the best plan of action financially would be to build on the current location.
ACS began a capital campaign last spring to raise the 3 million needed to move forward with an expansion. The new expansion will include 6 new classrooms, computer/STREAM lab, science lab, library and administrative offices. The front of the school will also get a revamp. During the ceremony, representatives from each committee that worked on the expansion will be present, as well as Bishop Joseph Kopacz and Catherine Cook, Superintendent, to cut the ribbon on this exciting new venture. The ceremony will also include speakers that consist of staff, students, and parents of our school.
Principal, Joni House states, “"The construction of this new building is more than just walls and ceilings, it is the opportunity to continue our mission of higher learning in a Christ-centered environment. It gives us the opportunity to accept additional students each year and offer a more STREAM focused curriculum."
“What an honor it is to work along so many others who have sacrificed personally and financially to provide an ever expanding learning environment for our Annunciation Catholic School students and faculty. As we continue our school's mission of building character, fostering community and creating lifelong learners, we can't help but remember those sacrifices of so many in our school's history. They formed the foundation that we have the privilege to be building on. The new opportunities that will be afforded our students and faculty is absolutely amazing. What a challenge and opportunity.” – Father Jeffrey Waldrep, Pastor of Annunciation Catholic School and Church
ACS will celebrate Mass in the school gym, followed by the Ribbon Cutting Ceremony and Reception at 9:15 a.m. The celebration will continue at 5:00 p.m. with a Grand Opening celebration to include a BBQ dinner, light music, and guided tours of the facility. ACS would like to invite all friends, family, and supporters of the school to attend either event.

Choose Kindness

We would like to thank the ladies of Junior Auxiliary of Columbus for presenting their program, Choose Kindness, to our 2nd - 4th graders. Choose Kindness was started to address bullying in the younger grades to hopefully combat the behavior before it starts. The goal is for students to take away the following from this program: the ABCs of a positive bystander, the difference between bullying and conflict, and the various ways to address bullying in a positive manner.

Pinwheels for Peace

ACS students will create pinwheels and then write their thoughts about "war and peace / tolerance/ living in harmony with others". On International Day of Peace they will "plant" their pinwheels as a public statement and art exhibit/installation.

On September 19th keep a lookout for the pinwheels – the spinning of the pinwheels in the wind will spread thoughts and feelings about peace throughout the country and the world!

Parents are welcome to join us on September 19th, immediately following Mass, as we "plant" our pinwheels.
