Posted 5 months ago

By Kevin Horn

Dear Parents and Students:

– There will be no school next week due to parent/teacher conferences on Monday and Spring Break for the remainder of the week. This conference is considered an “as needed” conference. Many of the teachers are meeting with parents this week. If any parents would like to meet with me, please let me know and I will meet with you this week.

– Prayers are needed for Trey Brennan who is currently in the Children’s Hospital in Denver.

– Don’t forget to order your yearbook. No Orders will be accepted after Friday, February 28. Money or check is due with order. Checks should be made to St. Agnes Academy. Please turn in your orders to Mrs. Gould, Mrs. McGhehey or any 8th grade student.

– Thursday is the 50\50 drawing at the Country Club. SAA Foundation Members, School Board Members, and Parent’s Inc Advisory Board: Please remember to be at the Westside Events Center for a group picture that will be included in this year’s St. Agnes Academy yearbook. The picture will be taken at 5:30 PM in the north dining room. Mrs. Gould will be there to take this photo. Thank you for all you do for our school!

– Pizza sales will be accepted until Friday, February 28. Order forms were sent home with students.

– Due to Spring Break there will be no March teacher’s meeting.

– Thank you to all the volunteers we have at St. Agnes. We could not operate without the help of our volunteers. Thank you to the lunchroom volunteers. I’m afraid to start mentioning names for fear that I will leave out someone. Thank you to Brad Moomey for gathering and recycling our cans. Thank you to Gary Parker for the hours spent putting in our projectors. Thank you to RSVP and Diane McGuire for sending us volunteers to help in the classrooms. Thank you to

– Tom Cyza for the years you have spent volunteering in so many ways. I can’t forget our Parents Inc. group that is so instrumental in supporting our school. We are truly blessed, because I could go on and on thanking people for their help.

– Scrip will be available for sale next week in the Parish Office due to school being closed for Spring Break. Feel free to stop in and purchase it there. Thanks!

– A Letter of Intent was attached to last week’s Tuesday letter. Thank you to all who returned them so promptly. If you have not returned yours please do so ASAP. This helps us prepare for next year’s budget and purchasing of book and supplies.

– A reminder that this Friday’s lunch will be served by Parents’ Inc. So no hot lunch will be served. Cold lunches are always welcome in the lunchroom, but no fast food please.

– Ten students from St. Agnes Academy participated in the Regional Math Counts competition at the Harms Center in Scottsbluff on February 22, as a team of four and six individuals. The St Agnes Academy Official Math Counts team placed second and will now compete at the State level in Lincoln on March 22. The team consists of Ashlee Wallesen, Cameron Collins, Lane Applegarth, and Dylan Horton. The team also received the award for the most improved school. The six individuals who participated were Josie Otto, Zach Placek, Lillie Otto, Charlie Otto, Cameron Tritle and Cameron Wood. The students did a great job. SAA is very proud of them. The group also includes Adriana Olvera, Kelsey Horton, Jake Wallesen, Crayten Cyza and Nathan Sughroue. MATHCOUNTS is coached by Sheila Schmeits. Last Saturday I had the opportunity to attend the Math Counts Regional Contest. We had many mathletes competing for the opportunity to go to the state competition in Lincoln. Once again, I was impressed by our students’ behavior, enthusiasm and ability. I am so honored to be the principal of St. Agnes. We have first rate teachers, parents and students. To be a member of math counts you come to school at 7:00 every Wednesday and work on math until school starts. Many students start attending in fifth grade and continue through the eighth grade. The dedication of Miss Schmeits, the students and their families is remarkable. That is why our students excel in academics, sports and fine arts. They give their all, regardless of the forum. In the musical, in the classroom or on a court. “It is the Spirit That Makes the Difference.”

Enjoy your time off from school!
