Mission Statement of Saint Agnes School
Saint Agnes Elementary School strives for excellence in providing a Catholic education that inspires and empowers our students to live the Gospel Message of Jesus Christ as compassionate and faithful Christians, who continue to pursue their spiritual journey, their highest academic potential, and stewardship to others.
FROM THE PRINCIPAL
Tomorrow is the last day of school for our 8th grade students. It has been a treat to see this group grow in their time at Saint Agnes. They have also been around Saint Agnes at a historic time for our school. They were around for air condition in the school for the first time. They were the first two-year users of our 1:1 Google Chromebooks. And they were the first class to use the new gaga pit! They have won state championships, regional championships, district championships, and served as spiritual leaders in our school. We will miss them being at Saint Agnes School on a daily basis but they know they will always be welcome back and we hope to see them continue in the ministries of our parish, as well.
I would also like to extend my gratitude and congratulations to second grade teacher Mrs. Maureen Woebkenberg and junior high Religion teacher Paula Jansing on their retirements from their teaching career. We are fortunate to have Mrs. Jansing continue working in the school office next year. We wish Mrs. Woebkenberg nothing but the best! ~ Mr. Hoyt
