St. Anne School Family Newsletter

May 26, 2021

Dear St. Anne Parents,


This newsletter will be the final "official" newsletter for this school year. I will be sending out a "blast" to all our families with reminders about our next school year next week, however.

Our 101st graduating class will be officially graduated this coming Friday. As we say good bye to our outstanding 42 graduating eighth graders, we are also saying good bye to 30 graduating families whose youngest or only child is graduating, thus they, too, will be leaving us. Graduation is always bittersweet. We are always so proud of our graduates and are happy to know that all of them will be attending the high school of their choice. At the same time, all of us are sad to know that our time together is over and the time has come for them to move on to high school On behalf of all our faculty and staff, I want to thank the graduates and their families for all that they have shared with us. St. Anne School is a reflection of our students and families. Knowing that, St. Anne School's reflection is something of which we can all be very proud!!!! Congratulations!!!

SUCCESSFUL SURGERY...

Mrs. Barbara Ragusin, our wonderful fourth grade aide since 2007, had a successful 5 hour surgery on Monday. She is expected to be back home in five days to begin her recovery. Thank you for your prayers. Now, we need to remember to offer a prayer of thanksgiving to God for this wonderful outcome. Thank you for your prayers!

5K WALK--THON- UPDATE

We are ever so thankful for all the families who donated to this year’s 5K Walk-a-thon! To date we have raised over $51,500. What a tremendous job from all the St. Anne families, students, teachers and staff who contributed to this event - you are all simply the BEST!


Reminder the donation goal is $150/student. Please send in your donations ASAP so we may close the accounting books on this event before school ends! Make checks payable to SAPTO, and include your child’s name, class, and 5K in the memo line. Or go paperless and sign up on PledgeStar (www.pledgestar.com/stanne) to make an online gift.

There will be a free shredding event in our school yard on Saturday, 6/12. The organizer welcomes us to bring our stuff for shredding.

PHOTO CONTEST

You are invited to participate in the My Park Moment Photo Contest launched by the Presidio Trust!


People of all ages are encouraged to submit a photo from their favorite park or open space – it can be anywhere. 400 images will be selected and printed in large format and will appear as an outdoor photo exhibit on the fences surrounding the construction area around Tunnel Tops – the new 14-acre NPS site that will connect the Presidio to Crissy. It would be wonderful to have representation from the AICD and American Indian community in general.


There’s a category for youth and teens to submit photos and even an opportunity for professional photographers to receive awards. Learn more and submit your photo. Submittals are due June 7! It could be a fun family project over Memorial Day!
