Hopefully, this week the temperatures will cool down at night, so we are able to have class all day. Last week, with the warm temperatures at night, we were unable to get our classrooms to cool down, so it was necessary to have shortened days. The forecast predicts cooler days this week. Let’s hope so!

In the spring, each family is required to sell/buy ten tickets for our Calendar Raffle. Each ticket is sold for $25 dollars and enters the recipient into a weekly drawing for $75 and two drawings of $1000 dollars. If a family fails to sell the tickets, that portion will be added to their tuition.
If you plan on driving for sporting events or school field trips this year please make sure you’ve completed all of the forms. We need a copy of your driver’s license and your insurance card before you drive.
If any SAA parents work for the BNSF Railroad please be aware that any donation that you make to St. Agnes can be matched by the BNSF Foundation. The paperwork is available at school if you would like to have your donation matched. So for example if you donate to the adopt-a-student program and you give a certain amount every year. They will match the donation up to $2000. What a great way to support the school!
There are still tuition contracts that have not been returned. It is mandatory that we have a signed copy for our records. If you have not returned one, please do so ASAP. If you are not sure you can call the school office and ask.
Have a great week!
Principal, Alliance St. Agnes Academy
