Special Events Throughout the Year
The musical and acting talents of our students come to life each year in our spring drama production. Students in grades 3 through 8 may participate in an after-school drama club leading to a superb musical production. Past performances include Beauty and the Beast, The Wizard of Oz, Little Mermaid and Saint Ann on Broadway.
Each December, students have the opportunity to find that perfect gift for their mother, father, sister, brother, grandma, grandpa, or friend. For a nominal price, each child will come away with a bundle of wrapped treasures ready to be placed under their Christmas tree.
Breakfast with Santa
Santa Claus comes to town each year at Saint Ann to celebrate with young students and families. There are photo opportunities, awesome decorations, story books, games, prizes, hot chocolate, and lots of family fun. Each child will enjoy a treasured moment with Santa.
Each December, all the children of Saint Ann School have the opportunity to perform in the Christmas Pageant celebrating the birth of Christ. The chorus and middle school bands provide glorious sounds that ring in the Christmas season with beautiful student handmade decorations adorning our school Christmas tree. The families participate in a Christmas Carol sing-a-long with cookies and hot chocolate before the concert. During this time of year, the Saint Ann chorus and band often perform at the Naples 3rd Street Festival of Lights.
Father/Son Fishing Tournament
Saint Ann dads or special friends come together with their sons on the famous Naples Pier to enjoy a great day. Bait, refreshments and t-shirts are supplied and trophies are up for grabs!
It is fun for all when Fall Festival arrives at Saint Ann School and parish! Good food, games, prizes, bounce house, a bake sale, chili contest, and great barbecue all attract the excitement of Saint Ann families and friends.
Heart for Education Gala
A signature dinner fundraising event is held each year and has become the hallmark of the community. All proceeds raised from this event go toward the Saint Ann Foundation scholarship fund providing over $400,000 each year in scholarships for students in need. For more information, contact Pam Macia at firstname.lastname@example.org and visit www.foundationstann.org.
Catholic Schools Week
A week full of activities celebrating Catholic schools across America occurs each year during the last week in January. Themes for the week have been “Catholic Schools: Communities of Faith, Knowledge and Service” and “Catholic Schools - “Learn, Serve, Lead, Succeed”. The week includes community service projects, a pep rally, family picnic, family mass and many other special events.
Each February, daughters and their dads or special friends enjoy their very own evening date event, complete with music, dancing, and treats.
Grandparent's and Special Friends Day
A special day is set aside to celebrate the grandparents or special friends of Saint Ann students. The children and their grandparents attend Mass, then enjoy refreshments, a tour of their grandchild's classroom, and together, work on a special themed craft for grandparents to keep. Saint Ann parishioners connect with those students whose grandparents are unable to attend.
St. Patrick's Day Celebration
Complete with a leprechaun contest, Saint Ann School students and parents represent the school while uniting with the Naples community and marching in the annual St. Patrick's Day Parade that originates at St. Ann church.
