St. Anne School Family Newsletter
March 24, 2021
Dear St. Anne Parents,
All year long our teachers, staff, students, and you, our parents, have been trying to keep our everyday activities as "normal" as possible. Our SAPTO board has been very busy trying to do the same with regards to our fundraising activities. In today's newsletter you will see that we will hold our annual 5K Walk A Thon on May 14. Obviously, the event will look a little different than in past years, but our students will still be walking to Golden Gate Park, receiving a 2021 5K Walk tee shirt, and receiving a prepackaged treat at the end of their walk. Since we only hold two fundraisers each year, we felt it was important to hold this event this year keeping in place all the health and safety guidelines. Please read over the information in the 5K Walk packet found in this newsletter and share it with your family members, neighbors and friends. All the funds raised go back into our school's programs. Let's see if we can't make this year's 5K Walk the most successful ever! Together, we can MAKE THIS HAPPEN!!!

WORDS FROM OUR PASTOR, FR. DAN
As incidences of hate against American Asians and Pacific Islander descent are on the rise, we're happy to see so much support from the President down to our Mayor, the local Police and from members of our diverse community. It's great to see Latin Americans, Black Americans, White Americans all standing together with Asian & Pacific Island Americans in rallies. I know how it feels when one is mocked and no one stands with you. That happened to me in Junior High. But I also remember feeling included and accepted after 9/11, when I was in line waiting to board a plane. A fellow passenger shared some safety tips while traveling abroad and after I thanked him, he said we're all Americans and we have to watch out for each other. That meant so much to me that he, as a Caucasian, fully accepted me, an Asian, as an American. Although I naturally think of myself as an American, but to be accepted by someone outside of my community felt very good. So as our civil authorities do what they do to ensure that no one is a victim of a hate crime, on our part, we can be good neighbors to each other. We can keep an eye out for each other. We can speak out when we see something wrong. We can stand with and affirm each other because we're all Americans.
~ Fr. Dan
GARAGE BREAK-INS IN THE SUNSET
Recently there have been a number of garage break-ins in the Sunset. All the incidents are happening in the middle of the night. It turns out the thief can break into a garage (almost soundlessly) in under 10 seconds by drilling a half inch hole.
Here is a video that describes this & also includes an easy fix:
Don't be the next victim, zip tie your emergency lever, in addition to removing the red pull cord.
