Drama Club

The Lower School Drama Club is dedicated to cultivating imagination, improvisation, and teamwork. With countless activities and games at our disposal, every Drama Club class will explore a combination of ensemble work and individual technique. Rather than rehearsing a single play, Drama Club will work to develop as many exciting new skills as possible, culminating with a final, after-school performance open to family and friends showcasing the Club’s many performance-based games and activities. The structure of the final performance is meant to ensure that every child gets a chance to shine and every session leading up to the performance is exciting and new!

Girls on the Run

Girls on the Run is entering its 6th year at St. Anne's!  Girls on the Run is a fun, innovative, after-school program that combines training for a 5K mile run/walk race with a fun, health education lesson plan. There is a place for everyone on our team; girls do not have to be "runners" to participate (but will enjoy it immensely if they are)!  We use the term running loosely – girls can run, hop, skip, speed walk or dance towards their goals. The lessons promote self-challenge instead of competition; self-worth instead of societal worth; and cooperation instead of rivalry. We hope to inspire your daughters to a lifetime of healthy physical and mental habits by promoting individual achievement, self-confidence, and team-building.

Club Sponsor: Melisa Miner
