St. Anne Catholic School offers clubs and activities for our students to enjoy.
Student Ambassadors - Advisor: Mrs. Talerie Bilharz
The 4th and 5th grade teachers have selected several students from each class to represent St. Anne School as Student Ambassadors. These students know the school well, and assist interested families on school tours. They inform their guests about the great happenings at the school, share their favorite things about the school, and escort them through the building.
Service Club - Advisor: Mrs. Partington
In the early years, we lay the foundation for responsible citizenship. Children learn kindness, respect, and empathy - internal strengths that connect them to others. Service Club can be a place where students learn and experience these positive values. Students in Service Club are encouraged to look outside of themselves, see other people's needs, and seek to meet them. Service Club is for 4th & 5th graders.
Club participants will be asked to:
- Plan out and complete quarterly service projects
- Serve the school student body, church parishioners, and community members in various ways
- Provide and assist at the monthly bake sales/raffles
Spelling Bee - Advisor: Mrs. Partington
The 5th graders at St. Anne's get to participate in their own classroom spelling bees (typically grades 5 - 8 are eligible, however this can be subject to change). The top two winners of the classroom spelling bee's move on to compete at the school-wide level, with the third place winner being considered the alternate. The school spelling bee usually takes place in January or February. The winner of the school-wide spelling bee will continue on to the County Spelling Bee, with the runner up considered the alternative. The next levels, if qualified, are at state level, and then national level.
Special Olympics - Advisor: Mr. Caudillo
St. Anne students are able to assist with the Special Olympics Ramp Bowling in Loves Park, IL each Fall. Students monitor lanes and scoring, as well as pair up and assist competitors. Students also help distribute awards. This is a wonderful service project and the students do a wonderful job!
Hoops for Heart/Jump Rope for Heart - Advisor: Mr. Caudillo
Our students K- 5 are able to join an exciting fundraising opportunity where they will learn heart healthy skills and have fun jump roping or shooting hoops, all while supporting the American Heart Association. More information will be sent home regarding the grades participating, fundraising forms, and parent authorization forms.
Junior Achievement of the Heartland educates more than 55,000 students in communities such as the Sauk Valley Area and many more. This program fosters the future successes and economic health of our young people and the communities in which they live. This is accomplished by producing elementary and secondary programs focused on work readiness, financial literacy, and entrepreneurship. JA reinforces the relevancy of the school's curriculum and empowers our young people to own their economic success. All JA volunteers are provided with training and a kit of materials. Teachers K-5 have an opportunity to participate.
Dixon Downtown Architectural Tour and Project - Advisor: Sandy Halla
The Dixon Main Street Architectural Tour is a 4th grade sponsored activity. The students are served lunch and treated to a walking tour of downtown Dixon. Downtown Dixon provides such an abundance of history that our students find this activity fun, informative, and extremely interesting. After this wonderful tour the students then have an opportunity to make a model of the building, from Dixon, in which they were most interested. The models are judge by the Dixon Main Street committee and awards are given out at one of the St. Anne's awards ceremonies. The students make absolutely amazing projects with such creativity.
