We are headed into 4th quarter…and what a year it’s been!  Here are some updates from a few of our classroom adventures:

  • The 3rd graders went on a field trip to the amazing Coterie Theater…they saw a great production of “No Talking,” a humorous slant on kindness and respect in school! They were great representatives of St. Agnes.
  • Our preschoolers took advantage of this great weather and picked up trash around the school…they are taking good care of all of us!
  • Our students are still rockin’ it on our Mathletics team…7th grade placed 1st, 4th, 5th and 6th all placed 2nd! Wahoo!
  • Our middle schoolers all researched, created and presented their science fair projects!
  • In reading, the 5th graders are working on their character development…looking at character perspective including antagonist and protagonist topics!

These are only a few of the updates!  There’s always creative and fun learning opportunities at St. Agnes.
