Dear St. Anne Parents,


Our 5K Walk-A-Thon will take place this Friday. This will be our second year of holding our 5K Walk in an abridged version. The students will bring their lunch, eat as usual, and then classes will go off for their walk through Golden Gate Park. When they return, there will be treats for the students in the school yard. I want to thank all our parent volunteers who are helping to make this fundraiser a success. Your child will be bringing home their "official' 2021 5K Walk tee shirt today or tomorrow. All students will come to school on Friday in free dress wearing their 5K tee shirt. Please remember to get your donation sent in via the PledgeStar link which is found in the blurb below. Thank you!!!

Don't forget about tomorrow night's Kindergarten Information Night which starts at 7:00 in the Kindergarten classroom. If you know of a family who has a child ready to start Kindergarten next year, this is a perfect opportunity to find out more about St. Anne's Kindergarten. Please share this information.

TRUCK NEEDED ON MONDAY

We need a parent who has a truck that can help this Monday, Nov. 22 at 11:30 to deliver the collected canned goods to St. Theresa's Church on Potrero Hill. If you can help, please contact Mrs. Alioto or Mr. White. Thank you in advance for helping get the canned goods to needy families.

The walk-a-thon is Friday and we have raised nearly $40,000! What a huge accomplishment to have so many St. Anne families and friends participate in this fall event - You are all Simply the Best!


For families who have not yet registered on PledgeStar, it’s not too late - you can do it today. And now is also a good time to send reminders to friends and families who have not responded to your requests. A little extra push goes a long way towards reaching and exceeding your fundraising goals. Or you may write a check to SAPTO, accompanied with your pledge sheet (from the Walk-a-thon info packet). To help Abhi Shamarao, Walk-a-thon Accounting Coordinator, log in your donations, be sure to reference 5K and clearly write your child’s name and grade in the memo line. Reminder the minimum fundraising goal for each student is $150 and must be submitted by December 10th.


Thank you to parents who will be walk-a-thon chaperones and crossing guards - all volunteer spots have been filled! You should have received a note on volunteer requirements from Miyabi Leu, Walk-a-thon Volunteer Coordinator. She will be sending further instructions for the walk in the coming days.

For parents who are inquiring about match gifts with their workplace, please use Tax ID #94-1156680. Please contact Pui Yee Law at law.aranas@gmail.com if you have any questions or need assistance with completing match gift forms.
