Mission Statement of Saint Agnes School

FROM THE PRINCIPAL 

We have a busy week going on at Saint Agnes this week! We are remembering our veterans throughout the week with a "fact of the day" about Veteran's Day. We will also be recognizing all of our friends and relatives on the Veteran's Day Wall on Friday as we take a couple moments to name them. Of course, we also welcome our grandparents tomorrow and Friday! This is a special opportunity for our students to see these special people in their lives and show them what great things they do at Saint Agnes! We look forward to celebrating with everyone throughout the rest of the week!  ~ Mr. Hoyt
