Our theme this summer is “Under the Sea.” The students will be studying the many amazing life living under the sea. Many of the classroom activities, readings, and projects will involve stories, information, and facts about those areas of interest. The students will be taking a few local field trips to expand each child’s experiences.
Applications due May 31, 2018.
We hope to see all our parents at our upcoming celebration of our school and all Catholic Schools on Sunday, January 28. Our celebration will begin at the 10:30 Mass and then follow with Open House until 1:00.
On display in our science lab for everyone to enjoy will be our seventh and eighth grade Science Fair Projects. This event highlights the creative thinking of our Jr. High students as they apply the Scientific Method to their science projects. Come and see our newly retrofitted school and enjoy seeing your child’s classroom. Refreshments will be served.
Catholic Schools’ Week will also be a week filled with activities for the students.
St. Anne has much to offer your child, whether you’re seeking a preschool, elementary, or middle school. One of the best ways to learn about St. Anne is to simply take a tour. We offer regularly scheduled tours throughout the year. Discover for yourself why St. Anne is an excellent choice for your child.
You will be greeted by a friendly representative (either school staff or parent volunteer) who will walk you through our classrooms and school facilities while answering any questions you may have.
Tours are from 9:00 a.m. to 10:30 a.m.
Please call the office to register for your chosen date.
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.
As you know, the tremendous devastation caused by the fires in Sonoma/Napa and beyond has left thousands of families homeless. Our school has a been in contact with the South San Francisco Police Department as to the needs of these displaced families. At this time, they have received sufficient clothing, but are in desperate need of baby food, wipes, dog and cat food etc.
St. Anne has responded by initiating a donation drive to help those in need.
I wanted all of you to see what a great response we received from all of you. One truck load, one van, and one car were needed to transport these much-needed items. The St. Anne School Parents ARE TRULY….the very BEST!!! Thank you so much for your quick and generous response to the call for help.
Have a good weekend.

Bishop Daniel Walsh grew up in the Sunset District and graduated from St. Anne School in 1950. After completing his studies, Bishop Walsh was ordained to the priesthood in 1963. Bishop Walsh went on to work in a number of parishes within the Archdiocese. During these years, he also taught at Serra High School in San Mateo. After serving in many roles within the Archdiocese, Bishop Walsh was consecrate as a bishop and served as the Auxiliary Bishop for the Archdiocese of San Francisco from 1981 until 1987. He was then appointed the Bishop of the Reno/Las Vegas diocese. He went on to serve as the founding bishop for the Las Vegas diocese when the two diocese were split in two. In 2000, Bishop Walsh was appointed the fifth bishop of the Santa Rosa diocese where served for 11 years until his retirement in 2011.
Today, Bishop Walsh is enjoying his retirement at St. Anne of the Sunset Parish in San Francisco. In addition to helping out in the parish by saying Masses, Bishop Walsh is a “fixture” at the school gate every morning during the school year. Bishop Walsh welcomes all the students with a smile, a hand shake and a warm greeting.
On Monday, October 2 the St. Anne student body helped Bishop Walsh celebrate his 80th birthday. Special congratulations and words of thanks were extended to the Bishop from the Principal, Tom White, Student Body President, Jake Truong and the St. Anne Spirit Squad. Every class created a special birthday card for the Bishop. In addition, a restaurant gift card was given to Bishop Walsh to enjoy. Concluding the assembly was a rousing chorus of Happy Birthday followed by some coffee and pastries prepared by the school staff!!
Happy Birthday, Bishop Walsh and we wish you many many more blessed years ahead.
