St. Anne School Family Newsletter

March 10, 2021

Dear St. Anne Parents,


As a Catholic School, our goal is to provide students with a rich and full experience understanding and living out Christ's message. At the same time we are working with our students, we hope that you, our parents, are understanding and participating with your child in his/her Catholic education. I am sending out a survey tomorrow to all families. I would like to ask you to take a few minutes and complete this Catholic Identity Survey. If you find that there are questions about something with which you are not familiar, please choose "Don't Know". The teachers and I are always looking to gather information that will help us plan new ways to keep our families better informed about our school's programs. This survey will help us with that process. Thank you.

REMEMBER IN YOUR PRAYERS

Please remember in your prayers Flora Lucas, grandmother of Alex Yap in 8-2. Mrs. Lucas passed away peacefully on Sunday, March 7. Mrs. Lucas's two daughters are graduates of St. Anne School, Mrs. Anne Quesada and Mrs. Flor Yap as are two of her grandchildren, Matt and Haley Quesada.

Also remember in your prayers Roza Dubnikov, great grandmother of Sofia Fong in 1st grade, who recently passed away.

Let us keep Mrs. Lucas and Mrs. Dubnikov, as well as their families, in our prayers as they go through this difficult time. As Catholics, we know that Flora Lucas and Roza Dubnikov are now realizing Christ's promise of eternal life in heaven. May their souls rest in peace.

DAYLIGHT SAVINGS TIME

Daylight Savings Time begins at 2:00 a.m. this Sunday, March 14, so be sure to set your clocks forward one hour.

VACCINES FOR COACHES

I just received an email from the SFDPH stating that volunteer or paid coaches are now eligible to receive the COVID vaccine. Here is the direct quote from the SFDPH - "...Based these Tier 1b guidelines, volunteer or paid coaches involved with School and Out of School Time sports would fall under any other workers involved in child and/or student care”. If you expect to coach or want to coach a sport here at St. Anne School, please get yourself signed up to receive the vaccine. It is great being able to see more and more of our parents being able to get vaccinated. Remember....one step at a time!!!! I hope it won't be long before we can all look back at this time and say....."That was an 'interesting' time in our lives."

THIRD GRADE RECONCILIATION - FIRST COMMUNION

Our third grade students will receive the Sacrament of Reconciliation tomorrow in preparation for their First Holy Communion which will take place on Saturday, March 20 at 11:00 in our church. I want to thank our teachers, Mrs. Alioto and Ms. Ruiz for all that they have been doing to prepare our students. These children have been waiting a long time for this special day to come. Please join me in praying for these students as they continue on their journey of faith.
