2012 Martin Luther King, Jr. Day of Service

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.

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.
