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 thank all of our many volunteers who made this past Friday successful. Wildcat Bash and our Talent Show made for another great day at Saint Agnes! We could not have done it without the great work of our faculty, students, and parents. It was a true collaborative event for our school community!
This Friday is the last school day for our 8th grade students. We will send them off as a school during our Mass on Friday morning and then have plenty of opportunities next week. Our entire community is welcome to attend the Graduation Mass in our church at 7 p.m. next Wednesday, May 30. Along those lines, our kindergarten class finishes their school year on Tuesday, May 29. We will celebrate them as they head off to 1st grade during their year-end ceremony in the church at 10 a.m. on Wednesday, May 30. ~ Mr. Hoyt
Congratulations Mrs. Hughes: Congratulations to 3rd grade teacher Mrs. Hughes and her husband, Kevin, on the birth of their second child, Isaac! Isaac was born on May 10 and weighed 9 lbs., 6 oz. Mrs. Hughes and baby are doing great and even stopped by school to visit on Tuesday!
Service Hours and Out-of-Uniform for Students Tuesday: Parents, do not forget to log your service hours on Sycamore by this Friday, May 25. All students whose families log their required 20 hours (10 hours per parent for single families) will be permitted to be out of uniform on Tuesday, May 29.
Spirit Wear Day Tomorrow: Tomorrow is a Saint Agnes spirit wear day. Students may wear Saint Agnes spirit wear with their uniform shorts or pants or gym shorts.
Out of Uniform for No 4th Quarter Uniform Violations: 8th grade students who received no uniform violations during the 4th quarter are permitted to be out of uniform tomorrow, May 24. All grades 1-7 students who received no 4th quarter violations may be out of uniform on Thursday, May 31. 8th grade students who did receive uniform violations during the 4th quarter may dress in spirit wear tomorrow, May 24.
Last Day of School June 1: Our last day of school is next Friday, June 1. Please remember that day is an early 11 a.m. dismissal day.
Thank You for Your Support of Our Book Fair: On behalf of Kim Brooking, Linda Stoudt, and myself, we would like to thank our Saint Agnes families for all their support of our “PAWS FOR BOOKS” book fair last week! The book fair was a roaring success! “President Bear” made a special appearance at the end of the fair to thank one and all for their participation. Here at Saint Agnes our goal is to make sure every student who attends the fair has a special experience. Once again, the students came through with all the enthusiasm necessary to make the fair just that.
Philanthropically, through our sucker pull (All for Books Campaign) we were able to give monetary donations to a needy elementary school library in the U.S. and a donation to “Save Our Shelter Dogs Rescue” right here in Park Hills through the Park Hills Animal Hospital. Thank you again for all your support! Bark! Bark! Bark!
~ Mrs. Bergs, Mrs. Brooking, and Mrs. Stoudt
P.S: Make sure to “sniff” out all your books that belong to our library, so they can be enjoyed again next year!
FACTS Tuition Accounts: A new option available to parents next school year is the ability to change the due date of a future scheduled payment to any business day within the same month. There is a limit of 11 payment changes per school year (average of one payment change per month) and the latest date change in May is the 23rd. If you have any questions, please contact Tom Rasp, Parish Business Manager, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
