St. Anne School Family Newsletter

April 28, 2021

Dear St. Anne Parents,


As I look at the calendar and realize it is almost May, I would like us all to take a little time to acknowledge the efforts our students have made this year. They have kept their enthusiasm for learning, maintained their connections with their teachers and each other, and supported each other under difficult circumstances. Whether students have been Zooming or have been here in-person, I think we can agree it has been a difficult and strange year for all. Yet I look at our in-person students and they are still enthusiastic and smiling. Our Zoom students participate in class and chat with each other as if they have been doing it all their lives. I know that as parents you can take some of the credit for this! However, this week I hope you join me and our teachers in acknowledging that they have come through this year with flying colors.

5K WALK-A-THON - FRIDAY, MAY 14TH


The Walk-a-thon is just around the corner and we have raised nearly $35,000! Thank you to all who have logged into PledgeStar to enter your donations as well as contacts of family and friends for pledges. Great job - let’s keep it up! If you haven’t registered yet on PledgeStar, you can still do so to fulfill your donation goal ($150/student).


Please note a few of reminders to be completed before the walk takes place:

- Complete the VIRTUS training and LIVE SCAN fingerprinting. Please check with Mrs. Perez if you have any questions.

- If you haven't already, submit one permission form/student (this was due last Friday) to your child’s teacher

- Submit corporate match requests ASAP to ensure your employer has time to process and send payment to St. Anne


New for this year and due to COVID-19, chaperones and crossing guards must show proof of vaccination or consent to covid testing by May 10th. Vaccination records may be forwarded to Mrs. Perez. COVID testing may be scheduled with Mr. White.


Contact Pui Yee Law at law.aranas@gmail.com if you have any questions.

CURRENT SIXTH GRADE PARENTS, PLEASE NOTE: All incoming 7th graders are required by law to have proof of a whooping cough booster (Tdap) shot on file in our school office. Please be prepared. Start your planning by calling your child's doctor and get an appointment to have your 6th grader vaccinated early. All incoming seventh grade students MUST have their Tdap vaccination BEFORE the first day of school.

CURRENT SEVENTH GRADE PARENTS, PLEASE NOTE: If you did not have your next year's eighth grader vaccinated for Tdap this past year, please note that every incoming eighth grader must present proof of having been vaccinated for Tdap BEFORE they can start in August.

2020-2021 YEARBOOKS AVAILABLE

Despite the present difficult circumstances, we will be having a yearbook as in other years. The content will be a little different than usual with limited activities but it is a year to be remembered. It can be ordered through Beverly Perea for $30. Download the form and send it to school with your child. If you are doing Distance Learning, you can mail it to the school with your check or drop it off on the bookshelf at the top of the stairs at the main entrance to the school.
