Dear Parents,

I mentioned to all our parents that this was a writing year for our school's WCEA/WASC school accreditation year. What this means is that our faculty and staff will be looking to assess our school's areas of strengths and areas for improvement. This process of writing our school's self-study document takes a little over a year to complete. We will be sending out a link to a Parent Survey in October and asking all our families to complete this survey so we can begin to get your feedback and impressions. Before the survey goes out to you, I would like to ask you to please read over our school's Mission Statement and Philosophy once again to familiarize yourself with them in light of your time here at St. Anne School. It is those two statements that reflect who we are and who we want to be. They have allowed us to grow, adjust, and develop our school's programs over the years. Thank you for taking the time to read and reflect on both documents. The most succinct versions of the Mission and Philosophy are found in the beginning page of your child's homework planner. Thanks for your attention to this matter.

In two to three weeks, you will receive an email from the company letting you know that you can go on-line and view your child(ren)'s pictures.
