Dear St. Anne Parents,


We have a busy week coming up.Three important events are scheduled to take place: Our 5-11 year old's Vaccination Clinic , our Kindergarten Information Night and our 5K Walk.

FIRST: The Vaccination Clinic will be held THIS SUNDAY, NOV. 14 in Moriarty Hall from 10:00 to 1:00. Registration is required. Please be sure to register early as we expect a large turn-out from not only our school parents, but families from around San Francisco. Please let your extended family, neighbors and friends know about this clinic. We do not yet have the registration link but will send it out as soon as we receive it.

SECOND: We are hosting a Kindergarten Information Night on Thursday, Nov. 18, at 7:00 in the Kindergarten room to all families who are looking for a Kindergarten for their child next year. If you know of families who have a child who will be starting Kindergarten next year, please share that information with them.

THIRD: Our annual 5K Walk-A-Thon will take place next Friday, Nov. 19. Following lunch, the students will be walking over to and through Golden Gate Park. All students will receive their 2021 5K Walk Tee-shirt next Wednesday. The students will be wearing their 5K Walk tee-shirt and jeans or pants next Friday for the walk. Please remember to send them to school with a jacket since it may very well be a cool/cold day for the Walk.

GRANDPARENTS' DAY 2022-Yes or No?? Have you filled out the survey yet??

We are hoping to host another Grandparents' Day event for our grandparents this year on Wednesday, February 2. Before we begin planning for this day, we wanted to get some input from you. Below is a survey asking whether or not your mother and/or father would be attending this event should we host it. Here is an overview of what would be happening during this event. The day consists of grandparents arriving at school around 11:15 and gathering in the library where at 11:30 their grandchildren will pick them up and bring them to their classroom for a whole class/grandparent activity. Family pictures are taken as a keepsake for the day during this time also. Around 12:25 our grandparents and their grandchildren go up to Moriarty Hall for a sit-down lunch. There is a little entertainment during lunch and the event concludes around 2:00. This survey will help us make a decision as to whether or not our grandparents want to attend this event this year. Please fill out the survey by this Friday, Nov. 12. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me. Thank you.

CANNED FOOD DRIVE BEGINS NEXT WEEK

5K Walk-a-thon November 19

5K WALK-A-THON – FRIDAY NOVEMBER 19TH

The walk-a-thon is next week 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.


We are almost there and look forward to a wonderful walk next Friday!
