Welcome Anna Yates

September 6, 2008

by Sandra Stewart

Teachers and staff of Anna Yates Elementary School had a pleasant surprise last Tuesday when they were treated to lunch by Albert Repola, owner of Ruby’s Cafe. It was the final prep day at the school’s temporary location before the doors opened to hundreds of students.

Principal Jag Lathan thanked Repola, owner of the Hollis Street eatery, for his generosity. Repola provided lunch for 21 teachers and 10 staff members.

Repola, a 23-year resident of Emeryville, said he wanted to welcome the school to its temporary home at Doyle and 61st streets, the site of the former Ralph Hawley School. Anna Yates, at 41st and Adeline streets, is undergoing a major renovation.

    I’ve always liked the owner of Ruby’s Cafe, and I’m glad to see him supporting Anna Yates School in its temporary home.
