A Note from the Principal

Dear St. Anne Family,

After over a year of preparation, our Gala is set to take place this coming Saturday, Feb. 1 at the Embassy Suites in Burlingame. Guests will have a memorable evening. Attendees at the Gala can check in starting at 5:45. No-host cocktails at 6:00 will be followed by dinner at 7:00 and dancing at 9:00. If you were not able to attend, you can still support our Centennial Scholarship Fund by purchasing a book of raffle tickets...6 tickets for $100.00 or $20.00 per ticket. The entire donation will go into our Centennial Scholarship Fund.

Our Open House and Centennial Mass begins at 11:00 Sunday. Students should come to these two events in full dress uniform. We expect to see every one of our parents and students here on Sunday to join in this ONCE IN A LIFETIME Centennial Mass and Open House.

Let us continue to make St. Anne School history TOGETHER!!!!

HAPPY CATHOLIC SCHOOLS' WEEK TO EVERYONE!

CENTENNIAL MASS & OPEN HOUSE - FEBRUARY 2

Don't forget Sunday, February 2, is the Centennial Mass at 11:00 followed by our Centennial Open House. This will be a very special Mass and our Centennial Open House will feature historical pictures and memorabilia of the school over the ten decades as well as current projects that the students have been working on this year. Refreshments will be served in the school cafeteria for our parents and guests. We hope to see everyone there. Yes, we are fully aware that the 49ers ARE playing in the Super Bowl that day, but be assured that the Open House will end around 3:00 which will give EVERYONE enough time to get home, change into your "football gear" and settle back for the big game!!!

BOX TOPS FOR EDUCATION

The BOX TOPS FOR EDUCATION program is changing the way we can earn cash for our school!

Instead of clipping from packages and checking expiration dates, all Box Tops will be earned digitally by scanning your receipts. To learn more about these changes and the program go to www.btfe.com. If you have any questions, please email Mrs. Perez at perez@stanne.com.

VIRTUS Online Training and Fingerprint Compliance

IMPORTANT REMINDER! Parents must complete the VIRTUS ONLINE training AND be fingerprinted to volunteer for field trips, retreats, overnights, library, health room, reading programs, or any other school/parish activity that involve their presence around students. Please complete the course and fingerprints as soon as possible so that there are no delays with your participation in school functions. Please select "St. Anne Elementary School" as your affiliation to help us verify compliance when you register at https://www.virtusonline.org/virtus/.

Parents who have completed the course but have not completed fingerprints have been placed in an "Inactive" module until fingerprints are complete. If you have any questions, please email Mrs. Perez at perez@stanne.com. Your attention to this matter is greatly appreciated!
