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.
Lenten Almsgiving: Each Thursday during Lent we will again be collecting money for five students to be able to attend St. Julie School in Buseesa, Uganda. We will have a bar graph measuring how much we have collected for each student. Our goal will be to collect $3000 as each student needs $600 to attend St. Julie School. Last Thursday students brought in over $560. Thank you for your generosity! Please be kind again this Thursday for our collection.
Spirit Wear Day Thursday: Tomorrow is a Saint Agnes spirit wear day. Students may wear a Saint Agnes top with their gym sweat pants or spirit wear sweat pants.
Day off School March 2: Please remember that Friday, March 2, will be our designated day off school from Bishop Foys' announcement during the Catholic Schools Week Mass.
Artists of the Week: Congratulations to our artists of the week: Lizzie Ruwe, Max Lawrie, Ian Fariello, Brian Finke, Caitlyn Iannelli, and Ella Weitzel. Be sure to look at their artwork at the end of the newsletter.
