spiritually rich and challenging academic program for Catholic children

Jesus, “Lifting up his hands blessed them. While he blessed
them he parted from them.” The gesture of hands outstretched in blessing,
expresses Jesus’ continuing relationship to his disciples and to us. In our
faith we know that Jesus holds his hands stretched out in blessing over us.
This is why, as we commemorate the feast of the Ascension, we should be
motivated to go about our life with joy, Christian joy.

Many students have brought Fidget
Spinners to school. These new toys claim to promote deep thinking, focus, and relieve stress and anxiety.
Unfortunately, they have become a
major distraction to the academic day. If your child brings one to
school, please know that it will be taken away and brought to the office for a
parent to pick up.
Finally, if you have a question or concern
regarding your child’s progress, whether it is academic or social, please
contact your child’s teacher first. If you need further assistance, please call
either Mr. Jensen or me.

Agnes, followed Christ, even to death.
Teach us to love Him as
you loved Him;
to witness to Him as you
did, with courage;
to put love for Him
before our own lives;
to renounce the idols
presented to us by society;
to risk everything in
response to His fidelity.
Agnes, pray for us!
