November 27, 2017 – St. Anne proudly celebrates the completion of the St. Anne Seismic Retrofit Project. Spearheaded by Principal Thomas White and Father Daniel Nascimento, the project’s primary objective is to help keep our children safe in the event of an earthquake. Joining them in the blessing of our newly retrofitted school are Bishop Walsh, Pastor Father Dan, Father Peter, Sisters of the Presentation – Sister Patricia Anne Cloherty, SAPTO Parent President Chair – Beverly Perea, St. Anne Teacher of over 45 years – Patricia Meek, Superintendent of Catholic Schools for Archdiocese – Pam Lyons, Vice Principal – Barbara Creedon, Office Manager and Administrator – Jackie Finnegan, Student Body President Jake Truong, and past St. Anne Pastor and current Vicar for Clergy – Father Ray Reyes.
Funded by past and current members of the St. Anne community, St. Anne School now complies with current earthquake code. In addition to structural reinforcements and other improvements, the school installed a powered lift and ramps for wheelchair access, allowing St. Anne to better serve the needs of its community. The updated facility feels lighter, brighter, and safer than ever. A deep appreciation and gratitude to Mr. White, Father Dan, and to everyone in St. Anne’s community who helped make this a reality.
