The mission of this Catholic faith community is to provide a safe and nurturing environment rooted in the Gospel of Jesus Christ, where Catholic doctrine and values are integrated with a challenging curriculum. The faculty, staff, and priests work together with families to develop graduates who are disciples of Christ, reflective and critical thinkers, responsible citizens, and healthy and balanced children. Inspired by the school's crest, the faculty and staff of St. Anastasia Catholic School agree to commit their lives to being disciples of Christ, build and participate in the Parish Community, and develop their own unique Christian Character in the image of Jesus Christ.

Dear Parents and Members of the St. Anastasia Catholic School Community:
I am so grateful for the support and encouragement that you have shared with each other and with the school staff. We are a resilient, tenacious, and hopeful community that is filled with faith in a loving and engaged God.
Attached is a letter from our superintendent (click here), Gary Gelo, who has provided a message of hope to all of the nineteen Catholic schools operating in our Diocese of Palm Beach. Assuming that significant changes do not occur in the state's phased plans for reopening our communities, our school is bound and determined to return fully on August 10th. In the future, when you see or hear the word "fully," it is correct to assume that this means five days a week, with all students invited to attend for a full day, every day. We will need to make temporary adjustments and compromises in order to accomplish our goals of safety, presence, and growth. However, I know that our community is quite capable of remaining optimistic and working together for the benefit of our children.
I have been appointed as the Chairperson of the Return to School Taskforce for our Diocese and have been working with a team of dedicated principals and our superintendent on how to safely continue our mission. In the weeks ahead, a Diocesan Plan for Returning to School will be provided to all schools as the guide for how each school will develop their own unique plan for how to continue serving you and your children. The school's unit chairs and administrative staff are working harder than usual this summer on the school's safety protocols, curriculum and instructional changes, staff training, orienting new teachers, food service, PPE and cleaning routines, evaluating student achievement, creating individual learning plans, instructional continuity plans (distant learning options), financial assistance, facility improvements, health and wellness plans, ministry and liturgical accommodations, and many other preparations for our school's opening in August.
As we start the school year, you can expect good communication, commitment to safety, a nurturing environment, and an excited staff and faculty who want to get back to learning and growing with your family. If your family needs assistance or you have questions, please do not hesitate to contact me or the office. Now that we have our masks and protective glass installed on the reception window in our lobby, our office doors will be open to calls and your personal visits on Monday-Thursday, from 8:00 am-1:00 pm. We will be working on collecting lost books, technology, instruments, and fees throughout the summer to reduce any frustration in August associated with class placement. I am pleased to report that over 20 students are participating in our summer camp and that many school committees are still finding safe ways to conduct school business throughout the summer.
As I personally seek closure on this challenging school year, I pray that your family is blessed with good health, has a renewed passion for how we spend time with our loved ones, and returns to the much needed worship, praise, and relationship with Jesus Christ in our churches. Yours in Christ's Service, Kevin A. Hoeffner, Ph.D. Principal
