Mission Statement of Saint Agnes School
Saint Agnes School exists to provide excellence in Catholic education while inspiring and empowering our students to live the Gospel message of Jesus Christ. As compassionate and faithful Christians, we continue to pursue our spiritual journey, achieve our highest academic potential, and be stewards of the Catholic faith to others.
FROM THE PRINCIPAL
I would like to give a special thanks to the PTO for their donation of the new picnic table in the Gaga Pit area. With the Gaga Pit and the Buddy Bench, that area has become a “destination” during both recess times and during other events on campus! A photo of the new table and that area is located below. Thanks for your support! ~ Mr. Hoyt
Annual Appeal: If you have not already donated to the “Fully Relying On God” annual appeal it is not too late. Donation forms are in the “Saint Agnes News” that was mailed. Donations can also be made online here. Additional donation forms may be picked up in the school office. Thank you for your support of the annual appeal!
Spirit Wear Day Tomorrow: Tomorrow is a Saint Agnes Spirit Wear Day. Students may come to school in their Saint Agnes apparel. Students may wear their gym sweat pants to school, as well.
Dress Code Reminders: During this cold weather season, it is important to provide a few dress code reminders. All leggings and tights worn must cover the girls’ entire legs. Shoes must be tied at all times. Slippers and boots are not acceptable. With the cold temperatures, all students MUST come to school in a winter coat. Classes do go outside if the temperature is above 25 degrees. Gloves and hats should also be worn in this weather.
Half-Day Next Wednesday: Next Wednesday, December 20, is the last day before our Christmas break. Dismissal will occur at 11 a.m. on Wednesday.
Advent Service Projects: This week is the food drive for Be Concerned. One of the ways Be Concerned assists low-income families in Northern Kentucky is by sending Weekend Power Packs home with students who are food-insecure. Through “Fully Relying on God,” we are called to be responsible and help those around us who are less fortunate. There are about 40 local children who depend on these power packs. Student Council is asking each homeroom to stuff their stocking for Jesus with the following items: pop-tarts, single-serve cereal, microwavable ravioli cups, mac & cheese cups, ramen noodle cups, cheese cracker snack packs, applesauce and fruit cups, pudding and Jello cups, and fruit snacks. Students can bring these items through Friday, Dec. 15.
Diocesan Catholic Children's Home Collection: Thank you to all who participated in the collection for DCCH. They truly appreciate the generous spirit of our school families. We collected $565 for them to use toward the purchase of new pajamas for the children at the Children's Home.
K-3 Christmas Program December 18: This year's Christmas program will be held at 7 p.m. on December 18 in Saint Agnes Church.
Tech Team: Mrs. Woolley is looking for a few Junior High students who want to learn more about technology! Students will be troubleshooting common computer issues, as well as assisting in the care and maintenance of our school devices. Please see the attached flyer for more information. Applications are due by December 15.
Spirit Wear Sales Online: If you need to order spirit wear, we have a new Saint Agnes Online Spirit Wear Store. The online store is open 24/7. From this online store you are able to customize over 300 items, including new designs, colors, sports/clubs, and logos. Your order will be shipped directly to your door within one week.
