The Students For Recycling Contest for the month of March is almost over. As of the 15th of March, St. Agnes Academy has collected over 4000 lbs. of recyclables. Please continue to take your recyclables to the Recycling Center in the alley across from the Western Heritage Credit Union. When dropping off your recyclables, remember to tell the staff you are dropping your items off for St. Agnes. The Contest runs until May 31. Thank you for the support and Think Green!
Grocery Cart Receipts dated from 9-01-2012 through 3-31-2013 are still being collected until the end of March. Please send them soon!
Congratulations to all who competed in The Stars of Tomorrow Contest. We had many St. Agnes students and St. Agnes graduates who shared their talents. Among the winners were current students Cherokee Purviance, Ryley Rolls and Wade Sanders. I am so proud of all who competed. Thank you to John McGhehey for being the Masters of Ceremony. It was truly a selfless act on his part, his kids were home for his birthday.
Prayers are needed for many family members of our St. Agnes staff. Mrs. Kaping and Mrs. Smith have both had their mothers in the hospital recently. Rose Schmeits is still waiting for a liver transplant and Mitch Weare is still in the hospital in Denver. Please keep your prayers coming their way.
The Candy Sales fundraiser is officially wrapped up and we are pleased to announce that it was another very successful year.
