Student Activities at Saint Ann School

The extracurricular program at Saint Ann School is designed to enhance and support the school's mission and philosophy.

Forensics

The Forensics Program at Saint Ann School was developed to provide students with the opportunity to participate in public speaking events as individuals, duets, and teams. Students learn the skills necessary for these events and for use in their adult life. Our Forensics team is part of the Nashville Diocesan Middle School League and a charter member of the National Middle School Forensics Society. Team membership is available to any interested student in grades 5-8. The program consists of many different categories in drama and public speaking, including poetry, prose, storytelling, humorous and dramatic interpretation of literature, mime, duet acting, duo improvisation and audition monologue. In addition to our weekly afterschool practices, students may participate in the league tournaments held throughout the year. These tournaments are wonderful learning arenas for the students, where they meet teams from other schools and are exposed to many other students of differing experience levels. The Forensics Program enhances the confidence and self-esteem of the students who participate and encourages them to grow in ability and creativity. Every student who has participated has shown growth in speaking skills and academic responsibility.

Student Council

The purpose of the Student Council is to promote school spirit, set an example, and serve as a liaison between students and different offices in the school. Two members from each class, grades 3 and up, are elected to attend these monthly meetings (afterschool on the 2nd Thursday of each month) in the Spanish classroom. They discuss student concerns and ways to improve the school, and the officers meet monthly with the principal.

 
Science Olympiad

Science Olympiad's ever-changing line-up of events in all STEM disciplines exposes students to practicing scientists and career choices, and energizes classroom teachers with a dynamic content experience. 

Choir

The choir and liturgical band lead the Saint Ann School community in song during our school liturgies and prayer services. They enhance the liturgical experience for our students by praising God through song in a contemporary style. Students in grades 3-4 can join Jacobs Ladder and students in grades 5-8 can join Liturgy Choir.  Members of both choirs sing regularly at 11am Sunday Mass, as well as, for Grandpals Day, the Christmas Program, Catholic Schools Week events, the International Festival, and other events both on and off campus
