A Note from the Principal

Dear Parents,

I am very happy to announce that our Centennial website is now up and running. This means that you, our current parents, as well as graduate parents and alumni, can now go

online and buy your tickets for our Centennial Gala which will take place at the Embassy Suites in Burlingame on Feb. 1, 2020. Our Centennial Steering Committee has been putting a great deal of thought and planning into making sure that this event will be a very memorable evening. In addition to buying your tickets on this site, you can also buy raffle tickets and book a room at the Embassy Suites if you are planning on spending the night there. We have been given a special room rate for this event. Be sure to check out the great vacation getaway prizes for our raffle!

We have also created a very special on-line store: St. Anne Centennial Celebration Store. Take a minute and see what our on-line Centennial store has to offer! There are some very nice items that will help to keep this year’s memories alive, as well as keep you warm!!

The venue for this event is the Embassy Suites Hotel in the beautiful Waterfront of Burlingame. There will be a reception on Friday night for those staying at the hotel that night.
