The School of the Month for October is St. Anne Parish School
St. Anne Parish School in Santa Ana has been the recipient of many generous donors in the past, but this time St. Anne is the one doing the giving. The students were moved by the devastation that occurred in Texas and wanted to help. Sister Teresa, the principal at St. Anne, has a close connection with one of the Catholic schools that suffered immense flooding. Through Notre Dame’s Latino Enrollment Institute program, Sister Teresa was connected to St. Catherine of Siena in Fort Arthur, Texas. Both schools benefit from the myriad of workshops and support offered by Notre Dame.
The Student Council planned a Relaxed Dress Day where students donated $2.00 towards repairs to St. Catherine of Siena. Together, the students raised a total of $500. Helping St. Catherine ignited a desire to continue to help others. This time their sight is set on those affected by the earthquake in Mexico City. The goal has been set at $500, but the students are confident that they can surpass this goal.
Service to others, and in particular the Corporal and Spiritual Words of Mercy, is a big part of St. Anne’s Catholic Identity. Students believe in giving back regardless of how much they can give.
