FROM THE PRINCIPAL
It's August already! The 2017-18 school year will be here before you know it. We have events scheduled in the coming weeks before our school year even begins so I wanted to make sure all of our families are aware of activities happening. We welcome our new faculty and staff members for their orientation tomorrow. Our new family orientation and kindergarten parent meeting occur next Thursday, August 10. And our Boosters host their annual golf outing on August 18. Below is some key information for you as we near the start of a new year. Students, enjoy your last twenty days of summer. We look forward to seeing you on August 22, if not sooner! ~ Mr. Hoyt

Preschool Religion: My name is Stacey Moorhead and I am organizing the Preschool Religion Program at St. Agnes. This is my first year heading this program and I am excited to be involved in such a wonderful group. Our teachers are eager to get back to the work of sharing the Lord’s love and teachings with our small, but spirited faithful! If your child is ages 3-5 (and potty trained) and would like to be a part of this program please contact me via email, for an enrollment form. Please have your enrollment form turned into me by no later than September 8. The fee for the program is $40, if cost is an issue, please contact me and we can work something out.
We are always in need of helping hands for PSR. If you would like to offer some time to enrich the program, we would love to have you! All adult volunteers must be VIRTUS-compliant at all times when working with the children. We also welcome older students (Grades 6-12) to join us as aides. This is a wonderful experience for our young people and an excellent way to earn service hours. If you are interested please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or (859) 907-3667.
