Heroes for Schools
Texas has more than 5 million students in its public schools. That is 5 million young minds from about 5 years old to about 18 years old, and our state is attracting even more. Every year, our student population increases by about 85,000 additional students.
Those impressionable young people depend on the adults in Texas to provide for them. They need shelter and food and nurturing and an education. Who will step up to see that ALL the children not just the ones in our own households have what they need in our schools?
In Texas, more than 7,200 generous people have offered to help. These are people who receive no pay for their dedicated efforts. These are people who not only volunteer but go through the process of standing up for public education. They are locally elected school board members. They are your neighbors, and they care.
These public servants donate their time and talents to ensure that ALL our children have the best public schools we can provide. These people sit through meetings, read detailed reports, listen to parents concerns, and do the hard work to benefit the students and the community at large. And make no mistake about it, the whole community benefits from good schools.
Each January, we pause in our regular activities to say thank you to these dedicated volunteers. We appreciate their generous sharing of time and energy on behalf of our children. Local school board members are truly heroes for our schools. Join Santa Anna ISD in celebrating School Board Recognition Month in January by expressing your support and gratitude to our school trustees. We are indebted to them.

Santa Anna Cemetery Association
PO Box 97
Santa Anna TX 76878
The Santa Anna Cemetery Association Board of Directors would like to invite you to the Annual Meeting of the Santa Anna Cemetery Association which will be held Saturday January 16th 2016 at 4:00 PM at the Santa Anna Housing Authority High Rise Community Center at 700 Wallis Avenue, Santa Anna TX 76878.
The meeting will include reports, election of board members, and old or new business as needed including voting on the below proposed changes to the RULES AND REGULATIONS FOR THE SANTA ANNA CEMETERY and CONSTITUTION AND BY-LAWS OF THE SANTA ANNA CEMETERY ASSOCIATION.
We had another successful Spring workday this past year and the 2016 workday is scheduled for March 19th.
The Association has continued to take care of the Cemetery despite very low interest rates on our Perpetual Care Fund. The past several years the interest on the fund has only covered about half of the mowing expense and without the continued support of your donations and memorials it would not possible for us to take care of the cemetery like we need to.
