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 we have concluded the month of October as a school, we have done so with Mary in mind. We came together to pray together as a school Monday afternoon during our Living Rosary prayer service. It was a great reminder for all of us during this month of the Rosary and we especially prayed for respect to all forms of life during our service. We move into November with much anticipation. While November contains fewer school days than many other months during our school calendar, it contains many important events. We begin with our school open house this Sunday from 12:30-2:30 p.m. We will celebrate our veterans during the week of November 5 and will welcome our grandparents during Grandparents Days November 8-9. Many of our 8th grade students celebrate the Sacrament of Confirmation on November 15. And we also host our parents for parent-teacher conferences the week of November 19. These are sure to be many great events that bring our parish school community together. I look forward to seeing you soon!

Wildcast Episode 2: Wildcast's episode 2 is ready to watch here. Also, be sure to check out the 6th grade videos in Wildcast. They just completed a unit on movement in Music class. They explored elements of movement such as body facing, direction, and levels. They put it together with some elements of music we are familiar with: rhythm, beat, and singing. Each class brainstormed and collaborated to produce their final project. The results are two very different, very creative performances set to the song "Fireflies," by Owl City. We hope you enjoy them.
