Catholic Schools Annual Report for 2012
St. Anna's Wins Arts Contest
Bob's Discount Furniture, through its Bob’s Outreach program, announced the winners of its annual Celebrate the Arts contest. In an effort to support and maintain dance, music and the arts in schools this year, Bob's Outreach is awarding $45,000 in cultural grants to deserving schools throughout the Northeast. St. Anna Catholic School, located in Leominster, is the lucky winner for Massachusetts. In fact, the school has been "twice blessed," as St. Anna won a $3000 grant from Bob's in 2008.
This year, Bob’s Discount Furniture received thousands of submissions from parents, students, teachers, administrators and community members.
Each year, Bob’s Outreach receives thousands of submissions and selects one K-12 school in each of the nine states (CT, MA, ME, NH, NJ, NY, RI, MD, VA) where Bob's Discount Furniture stores are located to win a $5,000 grant. The money will be used to support cultural arts programs during the 2012-2013 school year.

In all statements regarding student safety and respect, our Catholic school students testified to an experience of school that feels safer and is more respectful than the national average.
