Dear St Agnes Families,

I am happy to say that we made it through another week of school. Please keep praying for our students, teachers, and staff. We celebrated Grandparents Day throughout the whole week by writing poems, learning songs, making cards, and drawing pictures for our grandparents. I hope you have enjoyed and shared the post on Facebook. St. Agnes students LOVE their grandparents.

Today teachers had a professional development day. Teachers and staff were trained in CPR and First Aid. Mr. Emmett reapplied RAZOR an antimicrobial product on all surfaces in the building and playground that are frequently touched by students. It is part of our COVID Plan to apply RAZOR each month.

2019-2020 yearbooks are on sale now. Please send your order form and $9 to Mrs. Fallert-8th grade.

This Sunday, September 20, from 11 am to 2 pm St. Agnes Parish will be having a drive-through dinner at the KC HALL. Please take part in this fundraiser for our parish and enjoy a great meal.

Students and teachers have been eagerly waiting and praying for our 6th-grade homeroom and middle school Social Studies teacher Mrs. Kavaliauskas. She and her husband Rob welcomed a baby girl, Annie this afternoon. Both are doing well.  

Blessings,

Debra Klahs

Principal

Greetings,

This week we will be celebrating Grandparents' Day.  Students will be saying special prayers throughout the week as well as learning songs and creating something artistic for their grandparents. We will be posting some of these on our St. Agnes Facebook page.

Below you will find the Pope's prayer for grandparents:

Lord Jesus,


you were born in the Virgin Mary,
the daughter of Saints Joachim and Anne.
Look with love on grandparents the world over.
Protect them! They are a source of enrichment
for families, for the Church and for all of society.
Support them!  As they grow older,
may they continue to be for their families
strong pillars of Gospel faith,
guardians of noble domestic ideals,
living treasuries of sound religious traditions.
Make them teachers of wisdom and courage,
that they may pass on to future generations the fruits
of their mature human and spiritual experience.

 

Lord Jesus,
 

help families and society
to value the presence and role of grandparents.
May they never be ignored or excluded,
but always encounter respect and love.
Help them to live serenely and to feel welcomed
in all the years of life which you give them.
Mary, Mother of all the living,
keep grandparents constantly in your care,
accompany them on their earthly pilgrimage,
and by your prayers, grant that all families
may one day be reunited in our heavenly homeland,
where you await all humanity
for the great embrace of life without end.  

 

Amen!

Blessings,

Debra Klahs

Greetings,  

                                                                                                                        
Our first week went very well.  I am so proud of our students for working hard to incorporate all of the new protocol that we have put in place because of COVID.  Remember that our plan is fluid and we are vigilant in keeping up with what the state, county, and Archdiocese are requiring or recommending that we do.


Please check your student's backpack for important information and forms from the school office.  There may be a lunch bill and Re-entry Policy Form if you have not turned those in yet. The Free and Reduced Lunch Form needs to be turned in by Monday, August 31. Our regular Friday Folders should be in next Friday.


We will be adding the punch cards for lunch this week.  We will begin a choice for lunch in the first week of October.  Thank you for being patient as we figure out our new cafeteria procedures.


A reminder that students need headphones for their Chromebooks or Ipads at school.  We have found the earbuds do not stay in, break easily, get lost, and let sound escape that disturbs other students.  We hope that headphones will solve these issues.


Please see your parent handbook (It is on the website) in regard to our dress code policies.  Hoodies may be worn to school and at recess but not in the school.  No bracelets, dangling earrings, or necklaces.  Religious necklaces are ok but we suggest they remove them before recess.  That is especially true for the younger students who may be climbing on playground equipment.


I'm looking forward to seeing the students tomorrow.  It truly fills my heart with joy and the other teachers have expressed that several times to me last week.  Please continue to pray for us.


Blessings,

PHOTOS FOR WEEK OF 17 - 23 AUGUST

ST. AGNES
2020-2021 Newsletter #1

Dear Parents,

On behalf of the staff at St. Agnes, I am happy to welcome you to the 2020-2021 school year!  I hope you have enjoyed family time, and recharged over the summer.  I cannot even begin to describe the excitement and energy that has filled the hallways of St. Agnes in the last three months. If you had a chance to come to the school's Meet and Greet on Sunday, August 9th I'm sure you felt it.  Our devoted teachers have been taking educational workshops, attending faculty meetings, planning, and preparing for your child(ren).  Our secretary Mrs. Roehr has been registering new families, making sure we have supplies and materials and updating student files.  Mr. Figge has been thoroughly cleaning our facility and has been trained on the proper application of antimicrobial products and disinfectants by the manufactures of the products. Our volunteer IT team, Janet Schwent and Adam Vogt put many hours into getting our devices on the new server and set up our new chrome books and their carts for each classroom. Our wonderful PTO  and Marketing team have been giving our school an updated and beautiful facelift.

 

Please read our school's reentry plan if you haven't already.  You can find it on our school's webpage. Remember that each student will need water bottles and headphones with their names on them.  5th through 8th grade will need 5 facemasks, a new one for each day.  I have a Wellness Committee of moms who are nurse practitioners and doctors that will be helping me take temperatures in the morning.  Please be patient with us.  Only kindergarten parents will be allowed in the building for the first two days of school.  Their teacher Mrs. Steffens will be contacting those parents on what that will look like.  Preschool parents will go to the back preschool door as they normally would sign in their students.

 

I want you to know how much we care about our students.  When your child steps into our school they are the most important thing in the world to us.  They are why we come to work everyday! We want them to leave our building every day knowing how special they are and how much potential they hold. We look to you as a partner in your child's education.  We are excited to work with you so we can reach our full potential as a school.

Peace and all good,

 

Debra Klahs
