St. Anne School offers a comprehensive community service program for all middle school students. Through community service, we work closely together to connect, collaborate, and create a relationship with the people of God’s family. Our patron saint, St. Anne, made it her mission to accomplish these relationships throughout her life. As a reflection of our patron saint, students will work towards becoming responsible citizens and Christ-centered learners as they gain both awareness and sensitivity towards the needs of a diverse community.
This year’s middle school community service will provide students with the opportunity to collaborate with other classrooms and teachers to create meaningful letters and games that show God’s love for his people. These letters and games will then be sent to “The Hope Zone” - the site that God has put on our hearts for this year. To learn more about “The Hope Zone”, click on the Community Service Slideshow link on the right.
Students will be meeting the requirement of 16 hours of community service yearly and will be asked to reflect on their experiences through writing prompts. All hours and writing for community service this year will be done in class/online.
Additionally, students will be given opportunities for community service projects on campus as well. Operation Christmas Child, Blankets of Love, and the Easter Basket Assembly will still be available for students to assist our local communities.
Finally, prior to graduation, 8th-grade students will complete a "Grad for Grad" project. This project will be composed of a final reflection and a capstone of the students’ individual growth throughout their years at St. Anne School with regards to the four learning expectations.
