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!

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  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.
