2013 MLK Day of Service

On January 21st, St. Ann parents, students, teachers, parishioners and alum participated in the Martin Luther King day of service at St. Ann School. From 9:00-1:00 the school was filled with people scrubbing, dusting, vacuuming, scraping, and painting! Thanks to everyone who gave up time on their day off to spruce up the building and make the St. Ann environment beautiful.

Here are some photos of our amazing volunteers!

A Million Thanks…

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!

 

2010 Martin Luther King, Jr. Day of Service

2010 MLK, Jr. Day of Service 01

St. Ann Catholic School was chosen as a project site for the UMSL Martin Luther King, Jr. Day of Service. A group of 7th-8th grade students provided free babysitting supervised by a parent volunteer. A team of 30 St. Ann School teachers, parents, students, and parishioners arrived in the morning of Monday, January 18, 2010. They got busy cleaning the halls, stairways, Science Lab, and cafeteria. They painted walls in the main hallway, the 5th grade classroom, and the 4th and 5th grade stairwells. They scraped paint in the cafeteria and repainted those walls. An UMSL team of 7 volunteers arrived after noon with lunches for our 30 school volunteers and paint for the Science Lab and the cafeteria. The UMSL team painted the Science Lab and helped to clean the cafeteria. An enormous amount of work was accomplished!

Mark your calendars for January 17, 2011. We will be asking for volunteer help from parents and students for the 2nd annual event! We hope to be chosen as an UMSL project site again next year, too.

Below are some photos taken during the Day of Service.
