St. Anne School Family Newsletter

May 5, 2021

Dear St. Anne Parents,


Plans are now underway for next year's school programs. At this time, all students will be coming back to in-person instruction next year. Distance Learning will not be offered to our students. As much as we have all "loved this experience and had fun," the time has come to change back to all in-person instruction. We are going to be offering our Extended Care Program again to all Kindergarten through eighth grade students. After school programs such as Chinese School, chess, tennis, instrumental music, CYO sports, etc. are expected to be offered once again. As these classes/programs become available, we will be sending home information to you. The Registration form for our Extended Care Program will be included in next week's newsletter for families to fill out.

Tomorrow, The City and County of San Francisco is expected to announce that our county will be in the Yellow Tier. This is wonderful news. We hope that everyone will continue to be vaccinated and continue to take the necessary steps that will ensure everyone's health and safety for today and the coming months!

AN ADDITIONAL FREE DRESS DAY THIS FRIDAY

SURPRISE...I HAVE DECIDED TO OFFER ALL STUDENTS AN ADDITIONAL "FREE DRESS DAY " THIS FRIDAY, MAY 7TH in addition to next Friday's Free Dress for our Walk A Thon! Everyone deserves this small gift! Enjoy!

WALK A THON T-SHIRT DISTRIBUTION

In-school students in grades K-8 will take home their T-Shirts this week. Distance Learning Students in grades K-5 will have their T-shirts included in their weekly packets which are left in the school's lobby. DL students in grades 6-8 will be given their Walk A Thon T-shirts when they come for the Walk on Friday, May 14. If a parent would like to pick up the shirt earlier so it can be washed, they should email their child's teacher and ask that their child's shirt be left in the school's front lobby.

REMEMBER IN YOUR PRAYERS

Please remember in your prayers Eufemia Velicaria Bedania, sister of Tessie Velicaria (Parish Secretary), who passed away April 25th. Please pray for Dorotea Canta, great grandmother to Khyber (2nd) and Cade (1st), who also recently passed away. Let us keep Eufemia and Dorotea and all their entire families in our prayers during this difficult time. As Catholics, we know that Eufemia and Dorotea are now receiving Christ's promise of eternal life in heaven.

May they rest in peace.
