Coming Together During COVID-19

During this uncertain and trying time, many of our community members have reached out to ask how they can help the school navigate the COVID-19 crisis. Thank you so much for your care and concern. Here are some ways you can support the teachers, administration and community at large:

The 100% Campaign

As we reflect on the current situation worldwide, we find ourselves immediately drawing parallels to St. Anne’s founding back in 1950. The Sisters of St. Anne’s decided to face the unknown, instead of retreat, to help children in need. They saw that moving forward was the only option for them and the children in their care. As we find ourselves now in a similar predicament, with seemingly endless unknowns, we look to our St. Anne’s community to continue moving us forward like our Founding Sisters did.

How do we move forward? We unite as a community. A community where every single person is included and ready to help, 100%, in every way. This means 100% engagement with SADL, 100% participation in the virtual experience, 100% support for our teachers, faculty and students, and 100% financial participation from our community in the St. Anne’s Annual Campaign. To achieve 100% would show that in times of crisis and need, our community continues to move forward together.

Favorite thing about St. Anne's:
My favorite thing about working at St. Anne's is the kids. I love shaking their hands in the morning, spending time with them at recess, and sitting with them at lunch (when they let me!)

Why did you choose education?
I think education is the most important thing we can all support financially. With a strong academic and character foundation, students can succeed and go on to do remarkable things in the world!

Hobbies or interests outside of school:
Outside of school, I enjoy all the wonderful activities Colorado has to offer: mountain biking, hiking, camping, running, and spending time with husband, Chad, and our 2-year old son, Jack.

Stuck on an island, what book do you bring with you?/Favorite book:
Shel Silverstein's A Light in the Attic, a collection of poems. They are quirky, silly, reflective and fun!
