FROM THE PRINCIPAL
This Friday will be a very busy, but a very fun day at Saint Agnes. We will begin the day by inviting all parents and any other school volunteers throughout the past year to come through the morning car line for a donut. This will be our thank you to you for everything you do to make our school so great. We cannot do it without our volunteers. If you volunteer and do not normally drive through morning car line be sure to do so on Friday morning. Thank you again for making or school so great! ~ Mr. Hoyt
Wildcat Bash 2018: Get ready for Disney's animated movie-themed Wildcat Bash 2018! The event is scheduled for Friday, May 18. We will need lots of help to pull off this Saint Agnes end-of-the-year tradition. Please use the following link to sign up to volunteer: http://signup.com/go/qsnOajb. Thanks so much!
Wildcat Bash and Talent Show This Friday: Our annual Wildcat Bash and Talent Show will take place this Friday. The schedule for the day is as follows:
8 a.m. – Mass
9:15 a.m. – 12:15 p.m. – Wildcat Bash Activities
12:15 p.m. – Lunch
1:15 p.m. – Talent Show
If you or someone you know will be attending the talent show Friday afternoon please be sure to move your car as soon as the talent show concludes so our car line can run smoothly.
Wildcat Bash Shirts: Wildcat Bash shirts were sent home today. Shirt colors represent your child's assigned team (red, blue, green, yellow). You can also double check your order form to see which color each child should wear. Student Council thanks you for your contribution to their project "Operation: Water Fountains!"
If a student did not purchase the Wildcat Bash t-shirt, they should wear a t-shirt and/or sweatshirt of their assigned team color. All students can also wear any athletic shorts with appropriate length.
Wildcat Bash Lunch: Thank you to the PTO for supplying student lunches for the Wildcat Bash. Lunch will be a hot dog, chips and snack, along with a soft drink or water. There is no charge for lunch. If your child does not want a hot dog and prefers to pack, that is fine, but the cafeteria is closed so there is no option for them to buy anything.
Mass Time Friday: Due to Wildcat Bash this Friday, our regular Friday school Mass will take place at 8 a.m. There will be no 9:20 a.m. Mass on Friday.
Frog Dissection Help Needed: On Tuesday, May 22, and Thursday, May 24, from 10:35 a.m. -12:15 p.m., 7th grade will be dissecting frogs in the Science Lab. It would be nice to have four additional Virtus-compliant adults in the room to help with the dissection. Information on internal organs will be provided. Please contact Jorja Kremer at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to join us.
Donuts for Our Parents and Volunteers: DONUT you know how much we appreciate you? Saint Agnes students, faculty, and staff would like to show our appreciation to all volunteers on May 18 by treating you to a DONUT. During morning drop-off we will be handing out donuts in the car line to all parents in appreciation for all you do for Saint Agnes during the year. Please be sure to drop off your children that day so you can have breakfast on us!
