Dear St. Anne Parents,


All students will be bringing home their third quarter report card tomorrow. The students are continuing to do very well and I hope you are as proud of their accomplishments as we are. I say this each quarter, but our hope is that every parent will look at their child's report card and find their child's areas of strength and talk about those strengths. If there is an area that needs to continue to be worked on, talk about what you and your child can do at home to improve that area. Lay out a realistic plan of what needs to be done to improve that area, what will you be doing each day or week to make that change happen. If you would like to speak to your child's teacher about any of your child's grades or marks, please do not hesitate to email your child's teacher and request a meeting. This final quarter is another opportunity for everyone to show continued improvement. Working together, we make good things happen!!

BON VOYAGE....

On Monday, our seventh and eighth grade students will be going off to Washington D.C. for the week. After many years of studying and hearing about our country's history and our capitol, our seventh and eighth graders will be experiencing the many sights and venues around Washington. There is a special Prayer Service planned for their visit to The Shrine of the Immaculate Conception, a wreath laying ceremony at the World War ll Memorial, and a Remembrance Service will take place at the Viet Nam Wall. We hope that our students will remember this trip with fondness and come away knowing how special and unique our country is. Thank you, parents, for helping to make this trip possible for our students. Please keep all the students, our chaperones - Ms. Lam, Ms. Gotch, Ms. Vollert, Mr. Campbell and myself, in your prayers for a safe and healthy trip.

TDAP VACCINATION - ALL INCOMING 7TH GRADERS!!!

Whooping cough, also known as pertussis, continues to threaten students in California. To help stop its spread, ALL incoming 7th graders are required by law to have proof of a whooping cough booster ('Tdap') shot. Be prepared and plan early - in spring or early summer - before the fall back-to-school rush. If your child has already received the 'Tdap' booster, please send us a copy of his/her immunization record to update your child's school file.

After this point, the lunch will be sent to the school and there is no credit given.

ST. ANNE SUMMER SCHOOL 2022 and a FINANCIAL OPTION

As you know by now, we will be offering a summer school program to students this year. We expect a great deal of interest in this program. I want our families to have first "dibs" at enrolling your child(ren). Other Catholic schools will have the option of signing up starting next week. If finances are tight at this moment, here is an option. In order to secure a spot for your child,(ren), I would JUST NEED THE REGISTRATION FORM(S) filled out and returned ASAP!!!! You could send in the summer school fee at a later date. I hope this helps. Once the classes are filled, I won't be able to get your child(ren) into their class(es).

ARCHDIOCESAN FINANCIAL AID (TADS)

The Archdiocesan of San Francisco is offering financial aid to elementary student families who are in need of tuition assistance for the upcoming 2022-2023 school year.
