Our annual Fine Arts Night was on Wednesday, Jan. 30. School families, parishioners, and visitors were entertained by the students with singing and speeches by our Bellarmine Speech Team members. Art work from each student was displayed. There was also a display of science projects. The talent and creativity of our students is awesome!

The 8th Grade sponsored Fright Night on Saturday Oct. 27th. There was a spooky hay ride in the cemetery and haunted classrooms in the school building. Students played games in the gym and ate treats under the pavilion. Thanks to the 8th grade, Mrs. Thompson and the 8th grade parents for a wonderfully spooky time!

Dear St. Ann School families, friends & parishioners,
The 41st annual Sponsor’s Dinner Dance & Auction is coming up on Saturday, April 28, 2011. This is the school’s biggest fundraiser of the year. Last year we raised an amazing $65,000, which was used to finish updating the Science Lab, purchase 2 additional classroom MIMIO boards and laptops, plaster and repaint the school gym, and refinish some flooring. In addition, the money raised helps to ensure the financial stability and budget of the school and parish, and take care of many other necessary repairs/maintenance to the school and church … all thanks to many generous donors.
You may not realize it, but you have connections to local and national businesses, individuals, and organizations that may be willing to contribute to this event!
Do you work at a hotel or know someone that does who would donate a stay? Do you have a connection at one of the airlines who would be willing to give tickets? Do you have a vacation home/time share you would be willing to donate for others to bid on and enjoy? Do you have a favorite restaurant, coffee shop, or movie theater that would be willing to donate a gift certificate? How about a hairdresser, masseuse, craftsman, or contractor that would donate their services?
Please take some time to think about what you do and who you know and how you may be able to help make this year’s event a huge success!
New items and services are always needed to keep the auction going, year after year. Just call or drop a note through school to one of this year’s auction chairpersons, Kay Dieckmann (381-7201) or Cheri Smith (382-1107) and let us know what you are thinking about. The deadline for donations is April 4th. If you are interested in helping out in other ways with this year’s auction, please let us know… new people bring new ideas.
We hope you are able to join us and other St. Ann School parents and parishioners on April 28th for a fantastic evening of great food, fun, a live band, dancing, and over 175 incredible items and services to bid on! Don’t miss it!
Cheri Smith & Kay Dieckmann, 2011 Auction Co-Chairs

A million thanks to all the families, students, and UMSL volunteers who helped during the 3rd Annual Martin Luther King, Jr. Day of Service. At one point during the day there were at least 60 people busy painting the main hall, cleaning every classroom and stairwell, and washing walls in the restrooms. There was even a group at work outside removing the last of the bushes under the large pine tree by church. That area is going to become a Memorial Garden in memory of Mr. Wiedmann. The weather was so beautiful that we enjoyed our pizza lunch outside under the pavilion. God gave us many blessings on Monday!

3rd Annual Martin Luther King, Jr. Day of Service
Monday, Jan. 16, 2013 | 9 AM – 2 PM
Please plan to join the school faculty, volunteers from UMSL, and other school families for a Day of Service at St. Ann Catholic School. Students in grades 4-8 are welcome to help, too. We hope to have babysitting available for the younger students.
Last year, volunteers cleaned the science lab, painted the hallway area outside the science lab and the 2nd floor hallway, and cleaned many other areas. This year we plan to concentrate a lot of effort in our front hallway painting, cleaning, and re-decorating the space. We also hope to do some electrical work.
If we have enough volunteers we can accomplish so much!
Please mark you calendar now and let the office (381-0113) know if you can help. We want to be sure to have enough food for lunch for everyone!
You can also register through UMSL at https://fusion.umsl.edu/studentlife/community/mlkdos_reg.cfm The name of our group is “St. Ann Catholic School.
You will receive a free MLK Day of Service T-shirt as well as a free breakfast at the UMSL Student Center and a free lunch at St. Ann School.

Please join me in congratulating Mrs. Reid on this recognition of her hard work and talent as an educator.
