After spending the year learning all about Missouri history, the 4th grade took a year-end trip to Jefferson City to experience first-hand the workings of our state government. The students met with our local state representative and senator and even a Supreme Court Judge. They also got to see our state legislature in session. The students wowed everyone with their knowledge of Missouri facts and learned even more fun things about Missouri during their trip. It was a great time, and was an experience that they will surely not soon forget!

On Thursday Feb. 3rd St. Ann students competed in an Academic Bowl. Every student gathered in the Parish Center where they sat with their buddies. Each table was led by an 8th grade student. The questions were contributed by the teachers and Mrs. Reid acted as MC. She read 5 rounds of 10 questions each. When all was said and done, the difference between the first place team and the second place team was one correct answer!
(CONGRATULATIONS TO THE WINNING TEAM PICTURED ABOVE!)

She told the students about a Mad Scientist after-school program being offered at St. Ann. Information was sent home to the parents in the Friday envelope.
