Congratulations to our boys basketball team and their coaches for winning the Panhandle Conference Tournament.. They played three games in one day and won each game easily.
Thank you to Mayor Fred Feldges, for starting our week off by proclaiming this “Catholic Schools’ Week.” Fr. Tom Ryan, the superintendent of schools for the Grand Island Diocese, and Rich Otto, our school board president, also joined us for the kickoff. We meet each morning in the gym to pray together and begin each day by showing our costumes. We are all having fun and enjoying the festivities.
Thank you to all the people that came to St. Agnes for career day. It is very important that students have good role models. It’s never too early to start thinking about future careers and exploring possibilities.
Thank you to Parents Inc. and our SAY group for providing the movie, Monsters Inc. for the entire school. Also thank you to all the parents that drove students to the movie. A great time was had by all.
Prayers are needed for Rosie Schmeits. She has been moved into the Intensive Care Unit again and she is badly in need of a liver transplant. We will be establishing a fund at First National Bank to help Sheila and Rosie with expenses. Once the fund is established we will let you know, via this newsletter and local news sources, so that contributions can be accepted.
Thanks to all those of you who are keeping current with our lunch program. Please stay current. Also, please remember your scrip obligation for this school year. Some people are lagging and received purple letters with their updates. If you have questions about your scrip purchases please call the school.
Parents’ Inc. will not have their pizza sales this year. Candy sales are underway. So please support our candy sales. The St. Agnes weekly lottery ticket sales will be the only other fundraiser this spring.
I sent a message to you last night from our School Reach System to let you know about Catholic Schools Week and to test the system. It worked well. Cancellations and news from the school will be handled through our School Reach System. When youreceive a message you do not need to respond. It is simply to keep you informed.
Donations for the Foundations’ 50/50 fundraiser are underway with the drawing being held Feb. 28, 2013 at the Westside Events Center. Contact a St. Agnes Foundation Board Member if you would like a ticket.
