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
As the 2017-18 school year comes to a close this Friday, I want to thank everyone who makes Saint Agnes the special place that inspires and empowers our students to live the Gospel message of Jesus Christ each and every day. From Fr. Keene and the entire parish staff to our parents, to our faculty and staff, and to our must important people, our students, we are blessed to have the highest quality of Catholic education anywhere. This is the end of the 88th year of Saint Agnes School and we are as strong as ever!
I would also like to thank the following staff members who will be leaving Saint Agnes at the conclusion of the year for their service to Saint Agnes - Assistant Principal Mrs. Katie Jacobs, 6th Grade Teacher Mrs. Bridget Gruner, 7th/8th Grade Teacher Mr. Keith Morgeson, and Cafeteria Staff Member Mrs. Lisa Kruempelman.
While the summer is an important time for all of us to recharge our batteries and enjoy time with friends and families, I cannot stress enough that learning should never end. As noted during the book fair, the "summer reading slide" is very real and staying fresh on math facts is also very important. To read our school recommendations for summer work, please access this information on summer work recommendations.
I hope everyone has a restful and blessed summer! ~ Mr. Hoyt
