Beyond the Classroom
The learning extends beyond the classroom. Each lower school class is paired with a middle school class and a buddy is assigned. Whether tie-dying t-shirts to be used for filed trips or reading to your buddy, the relationships formed build a feeling of community and family. This is evident as the students are walking across campus and one sees older students stopping to talk with the younger children. Reaching out to the greater community through service projects is an important part of developing the students’ connection to the world beyond the classroom. From making blankets for the Linus Project in kindergarten, or raising funds to buy needed supplies for an animal shelter to supporting the paralympic ski team, all students are involved in community service projects.
All children at St. Anne's are able to visit St. Anne's in the Hills (SAITH) twice each year for class trips, science programs, and team building. As they get older SAITH is used for overnight experiential education opportunities.
