St. Anne School Family Newsletter

April 14, 2021

Dear St. Anne Parents,


Our May 14th 5K Walk A Thon is just a month away. Our 5K Walk A Thon is the only mandatory fundraiser that we hold. Knowing that, I would like to ask every parent to please be sure to get your mandatory minimum pledge of $150.00 per child sent in ASAP. Understanding that this year is an unusual year, our 5K Walk chairs have been working extra hard to make this year's fundraiser as fun and memorable as possible. In addition to your financial contributions, we need YOUR HELP in volunteering to chaperone our classes on the walk to and from Golden Gate Park. To volunteer to chaperone, all you need to do is to go to our school's homepage and scroll down to the bottom right hand side of the page and click on the "Volunteer Sign Up" link. Thanks for helping to make this 5K a fun adventure for everyone.

SUMMER SCHOOL CANCELLED

I am sorry to announce that our school will not be offering a summer program this year. This difficult decision was arrived at after much discussion. Thank you for your understanding.

WHOOPING COUGH BOOSTER (TDAP) - ALL INCOMING 7TH GRADERS AND POSSIBLE 8TH GRADERS

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, every 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.
