Goodness, Discipline, & Knowledge



Dear St. Anne Families and Friends, Every school year brings about challenges beyond the control of the operating budget. This year, in particular, proved to be exceptional. In a short amount of time, St. Anne made extraordinary changes to the campus, to the curriculum, and to the community in response to COVID-19, all on the heels of a tremendous campus expansion. All of this was made possible because of your commitment to the advancement efforts of St. Anne Catholic School. With resilience and great adaptability, the St. Anne community responded with incredible support. Teachers and staff, parents, grandparents, alumni, parishioners, community partners, and friends, contributed to enhancing the St. Anne days of our current students. Despite the unusual school year, St. Anne students thrived in the classroom and on the field. Students placed locally in the Archdiocesan Spelling Bee and Science Fairs, nationally in the National Geography Bee, excelled in academic rallies, performed in an inaugural guitar recital, chatted with a former astronaut, celebrated Hispanic Heritage Month and Black History Month, witnessed the construction of the new gym, saluted veterans, presented a spirited Christmas program, volunteered on campus and in the community, competed on the track, on the court and in the field, and courageously transitioned to nine weeks of distance learning during a global pandemic.

“...St. Anne flourished under exceptional circumstances because of your generous gift, which allowed St. Anne to meet the challenges of the moment. St. Anne’s pivot to remote learning and remote community succeeded precisely because of our strong

In addition, the class of 2020 was accepted to Houston’s finest schools; 89% will attend Catholic High Schools, including St. Thomas High School, Strake Jesuit College Preparatory, Incarnate Word Academy, St. Agnes Academy, Duchesne Academy of the Sacred Heart, St. Pius X High School, and St. John XXIII College Preparatory. Nine percent will attend other private and public schools including Awty International School, St. John’s School, Houston Christian High School, Bellaire High School, and Lamar High School. Together, the class of 2020 was awarded over $50,000 in academic scholarships. As we reflect on the 2019-2020 school, St. Anne flourished under exceptional circumstances because of your generous gift, which allowed St. Anne to meet the challenges of the moment. St. Anne’s pivot to remote learning and remote community succeeded precisely because of our strong teachers, strong curriculum, and strong community. As a result, our return to campus has been more joyful, more united, and, above all, more faithful. Thank you for continuing to stand alongside St. Anne Catholic School In His Name,

teachers, strong curriculum, and strong community.”

Dawn Martinez Principal, St. Anne Catholic School

St. Anne Catholic School ANNUAL REPORT


FIESTA 2019 With excavators, hard hats, and steel beams in use for the exciting St. Anne campus expansion, a parish-wide FIESTA celebration required a more creative approach this year. Limited parking and construction activity prevented St. Anne from safely accommodating the historically large day-of FIESTA crowds. Because of this, the day-of parish-wide FIESTA fun took a siesta. However, St. Anne students honored the spirit of FIESTA by selling raffle tickets, holding pep rallies, and beating student incentive goals! When St. Anne students sell raffle tickets, they serve as active fundraisers on behalf of their school. St. Anne parishioners also generously support FIESTA with raffle sales and by giving their time. Community partners sponsor and make in-kind donations. It takes every part of our community to ensure that FIESTA successfully meets fundraising goals. Students kicked-off the St. Anne FIESTA season with a “ ‘Rock Rally”, where the entire community learned why FIESTA-and raffle ticket sales-are important to St. Anne. The FIESTA season ended in celebration with a student-only FIESTA Fest; a day of entertainment, games, and food. FIESTA took a SIESTA this year, but thanks to generous sponsors, St. Anne Catholic School celebrated with the same FIESTA spirit as in years past!

St. Anne Catholic School extends a big


to all our 2019 FIESTA sponsors. Without your support, FIESTA would not be possible!

ANNUAL FUND A St. Anne day finds students learning in the light of Christ, playing in the courtyard alongside friends, and praying for the gift of a Catholic education. By supporting the St. Anne Annual Fund, these are the days you impacted.

Over $200,000 raised in 2019-2020

This year, your gestures of confidence in the St. Anne Catholic School mission translated into gifts that were matched up to $50,000 by a generous alumnus on Giving Day. With your help, we exceeded the match challenge, with gifts coming from across our community. Thank you for saying YES! to St. Anne’s most important philanthropic effort. Your Annual Fund participation ensures that St. Anne shines in the light of the Basilian tradition of Goodness,

Discipline, and Knowledge.

Every amount helps realize the vision of a St. Anne Catholic education.


The St. Anne Annual Fund is the most important gift St. Anne Catholic School asks of the community. Gifts from current parents, alumni, grandparents, faculty and staff ensure the Basilian legacy of learning for which St. Anne is known. Annual Fund support is critical to the School as almost $.96 of every donated dollar is returned directly to the classroom, all while keeping tuition affordable. In simple terms, your taxdeductible gift to the Annual Fund eases pressure on tuition levels and provides the resources above

tuition necessary to support the excellent faculty and programs that St. Anne families expect.

STEPS FOR STUDENTS As one of the largest fundraising events in the Archdiocese of Galveston-Houston, Steps for Students provides a platform for 59 Catholic school communities to raise funds for their own specific needs. For St. Anne, Steps For Students supports the Annual Fund, which translates to tangible classroom enhancements and experiences for our students like innovative technology, continued professional development, and arts enrichment. This year St. Anne raised $2,840.11 at Steps for Students. More importantly, over 100 families signed up to run/walk or hit the snooze button in support of a Catholic education.

THANK YOU! for walking with #TeamStAnne in support of the Annual Fund!

Sharing His Vision. Teaching His Values.

ST. ANNE SERVANTS Members of the St. Anne community have exemplified the Basilian spirit in working to keep Houston safe during the COVID-19 pandemic. Many serve on the front lines and selflessly risk their lives to protect ours. Many have taken on service projects for Houston’s most needy. Efforts have saved both lives and spirits. In tribute, these St. Anne Servants deserve to be recognized for their heroic efforts of hope.

MATCHING GIFTS Many companies support causes that are important to their employees by matching their charitable contributions. Matching gifts double, sometimes even triple, individual donations.

A Legacy of Transforming Love

“It was not you who chose me,but I who chose you and appointed you to go and bear fruit that will remain” John 15:16

2120 Westheimer Houston, Texas 77098-1496 713.526.3279 | stannecs.org

In 2019, St. Anne was named the beneficiary of a family trust, whose transformational gift celebrates the family’s long-term commitment to St. Anne. Members of the trust attended St. Anne Catholic School and were parishioners. As immigrants from Central America, St. Anne embraced the family and made a tremendous impression. Per the donors wishes, the gift will be designated for tuition assistance. As St. Anne embarks on 90 years of educating students, major gifts such as this one ensure that generations of students, no matter their circumstances, experience the blessing of a St. Anne Catholic School education.
