On December 6th St. Nicholas visited St. Ann school. He made his first appearance at Morning Prayer in the gym. The prayer leaders told the students the story of St. Nicholas and why he is an important saint in our church. Afterwards, he visited each classroom with bags of goodies such as oranges, apples and cookies. Each bag also contained an explanation of the significance of those food items.
Thanks St. Nicholas for your example of generosity and goodness during this Advent Season!
The St. Ann students gathered over 100 grocery bags filled with canned and boxed goods for the Caritas House food pantry. On Dec. 3rd the students formed a human chain and passed the bags from school to the Caritas House down the street. Each bag was decorated with the words “Filled With Love” Some parents joined the chain also!
It was a beautiful way to start off the first week of Advent!
St. Ann Catholic School was pleased to welcome KMOV Channel 4′s Chief Meteorologist, Steve Templeton last week. Mr. Templeton visited with our students for well over an hour and discussed all aspects of the weather. Everyone had a wonderful time.
Thank you Mr. Templeton for your time and sharing your knowledge with all of us.
Here is a brief video from Channel 4 highlighting his visit to St. Ann Catholic School.
The first grade visited the Convent of the Immaculate Heart on Wednesday Oct. 31st. They sang songs for the sisters and read them stories. Each student made a scarecrow for the sisters to hang on the door of their rooms. At the end of the visit, the sisters gave the students some candy and Halloween bookmarks they had made. It was a wonderful visit for both the sisters and the first graders!
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!
Recycle Dude visited St. Ann on Monday morning. He praised the students for their amazing recycling efforts and reminded them about all they ways they can be earth protectors. To keep trash off the landfill the students recycle all of the milk cartons, lunchable containers, plastic baggies and any plastic juice containers they bring in their lunch. The students also empty all of their fruit waste such as apple cores and cantaloupe rinds into the compost bucket. The compost is used in our garden. To make money (and keep trash off the landfill) the students save all Lay’s chip bags and all Capri Sun juice pouches.
Thanks to Recycle Dude, St. Ann students are the best Earth Protectors in the Archdiocese!!!
