2019 – 2020 REGISTRATION & PAYMENT INFORMATION
Please make sure to read through everything (Steps 1-8) before you complete the registration form (found below in one of the steps.)
Step 1: Consider being a VOLUNTEER
Every year this program runs solely because amazing parents, grandparents, and faith-filled parishioners step up to offer their time and talent. Yet, we always have roles unclaimed that might have your name on it! Before you register consider how God works in your life, how you can fully witness this to your children and maybe, in small or big ways, offer this to our parish.
*Catechists and Aides for ALL Grade levels (100% tuition waiver gifted)
*Hallway monitors (might sound simple, but is VERY important – 50% tuition waiver gifted)
*Parking Lot monitors (vital for safety – 50% tuition waiver gifted)
*Nursey volunteers at the 4:30pm sessions (50% tuition waiver gifted)
Step 2: Set Your Calendar & mark now the RE KICK-OFF FAMILY GATHERING
– NEW families to St. Anne RE program may have a special welcome meeting in the Fall. Date to be determined.
– ALL families are to choose which special (and required) RE Kick-off Mass to attend to start our year. Dates are: Sat., September 14th at 6:30pm OR Sun., September 15th at 4pm. ALL of your children enrolled in RE should be in attendance WITH their parents at that Mass.
Look at the Calendar links above and mark the RE/DASH schedule for the year in your phone. (Especially those in DASH 2 or 3 as there is no consistency to the dates.)
*Monday families, note there is one date where students are not in school but WILL be at RE. This is to ensure we have the proper amount of time in class for all students.
Step 3: Know what we need for a COMPLETED REGISTRATION
A complete registration means you have sent a payment AND paperwork. We will not process your registration until both are received.
To receive the Early Bird Rate: You choose to fill out the forms and pay however you want, but BOTH the forms and the money must be received by or ON July 15th.
*Only completed registrations will be processed in the order they are received.
*For families with a child(ren) NEW to the program, a copy of your child’s baptism certificate (if they were NOT baptized at St. Anne), must also accompany your registration.
Step 4: Know our TUITION AMOUNTS
– The box below reflects our normal St. Anne rates for check/cash payments. If you choose to write a check, make it payable to: St. Anne RE
– Additional fees apply for using your Credit Card through the PayPal option. These amounts will change according to the rate period and can be found in the drop-down box for the PayPal link.
-If you need a flexible payment option, please click below:

to share important information with us about your child’s specific needs. If you have more than one child with special needs, please use a separate form for each child. The page(s) should be turned in with your completed registration form.
– CAR POOLS? Families are placed into preferred class times on a first come, first serve basis.
*Include the names of carpooling families in your list of who is authorized to pick up your child.
*Make sure all families involved choose the same day/time preferences AND turn in their forms/payments at the same time.
