Kindergarten Round-up is this week, Thursday, April 25th, and Friday, April 26th. If you are interested in having your child attend St. Agnes, call school and put your child’s name on the list.
The Students for Recycling contest is going well. Continue to drop off your recyclables at the KAB Recycling Center in the alley across from the Western Heritage Credit Union. Another program that the KAB and the first grade is participating in is called “Keys for Kids.” Old keys are recycled and used to help grant a wish for a child who is ill. So if you have old keys put them to good use by donating them to this program. Let’s help make a difference in someone’s life.
Busy Bunnies preschool is looking for an older computer to use in the pre-school. If someone has one they would like to donate, see Deb Salomon.
Last week Ms. Schmeits and our kindergarten through fourth grade teachers attended a math conference in Denver. They attended presentations, learned methods of teaching math and looked through new text books to be purchased for next year. It was very beneficial for both the teachers and our students.
Dental Days are scheduled for May 31 and June 1, 2013. Please contact the school for a packet. If you do not have dental insurance you are eligible for this program.
Please keep Rose Schmeits in your prayers. She suffered a subdural hematoma and had surgery yesterday. As of the writing of this letter we hear that she is responding better today. She is still on the ventilator, but she opened her eyes and answered questions. Keep the prayers coming.
Mrs Cyza’s dad, Ron Gunia, is also in the hospital in Denver. Please keep him in your prayers.
The track team will have their track meet on Thursday at Gordon. It will begin at 2 pm. Students will be dismissed at 11:17 AM and need to bring their lunch with them. It has been a tough track season due to the snow and cold weather. Good luck to our athletes!
The Panhandle Conference track meet on Saturday will be held in Morrill, rather than Chadron. And on Tuesday, April 30, the track team travels to Torrington. This track meet was postponed from April 13.
Last week I was giving a tour of our school to some potential parents and students. As we were walking down the hall, a group of our eighth grade boys walked past us. They were in track practice and doing a cool down by walking the halls. When they passed, each of them greeted us, said “excuse me” for walking in front of us and continued down the hall. They were the best advertisement St. Agnes could have. Thank you for being such good kids. Parents, pat yourselves on the back. You’ve done a great job! We have had many challenges this year. But when I see the wonderful kids that we have at St. Agnes, it makes it all worth it.
