We’ve all got Christmas shopping and entertaining this season.  Check out how you can help the students of St. Agnes while enjoying the joy of the Christmas season.


Local Christmas Shopping:  Support two great organizations this Christmas season…Saint Agnes Catholic School and The Farmer’s House are partnering for a fun shopping experience.

December 5-9, The Farmer’s House Market will donate 10% of all sales, on every day, to St. Agnes PTO. The Farmer’s House is located at 4740 Rainbow Boulevard in Westwood and is open Tuesday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Stop by anytime during these five days to shop and our school children and teachers will benefit.

Thursday, December 7, 7:00 p.m.:  Farmer’s House will host a Mom’s Night Out.  This evening will include beverages and appetizers while you enjoy some shopping without the kids.  The Farmer’s House will donate 10% of all sales throughout this evening.

PTO Fundraising Nights and Events

PTO has been an amazing asset for our St. Agnes community!  The PTO is a community group comprised of Kindergarten through eighth grade parents, the school administration and the grade school faculty. The primary goal of PTO is to support – through volunteering and fundraising – the teachers and students.

As a fundraising group, they raise money so our students can participate in field trips throughout the year, engage in class parties and even save our parents money on school supplies.  The fundraising initiative is important to our school community!

Be sure to mark your calendars for the upcoming fundraising nights at local restaurants such as Chick-fil-A, Cupini’s and Culver’s…just to name a few!  Click here for more information.

Fall Festival and Book Fair

There is a lot happening at St. Agnes right now!  Fall Festival and Book Fair…both great opportunities to support our parish and our school community.

FALL FESTIVAL:  It’s a great community builder…open to everyone!

  • Games and Inflatables—the St. Agnes School Families are expected to fill all the shifts for the games and inflatables.  There are 60, 45-minute shifts, so we will need everyone’s help!  The link to sign up is:  https://www.timetosignup.com/stagnes/folder/5121
  • Prize Donations—We have already secured 200 light-up yo-yo’s as prizes, but we’ll need more!  In the years past, we’ve set a bin outside the office and used the newsletter/school communications to ask the parents and kids to donate prizes for the games.  Could we do this again this year?
  • Baked Goods—The ever-popular Cake Walk will need baked goods for prizes.  We need each family to bring in a baked good for this popular activity!    Please bring in your baked goods by Thursday, September 14.  They can be brought to the school office and/or the teachers lounge.
  • Food and Wristband: $35 for a family of 4 or $10 per person.
  • Bring extra spending money:
    • PTO is selling t-shirts and car stickers.
    • Scrip will be selling gift cards.
  • Be kind to the environment…bring your own beverages and help recycle.

This year, we will be honoring Sr. Martina Rocker with cards to celebrate her 75 years of loving service as a sister in the Ursuiline Order.  Sister has been a parishioner at St. Agnes since 1957 and there are a lot of memories of her time with us.  Cards, photos, letters and stories of those memories can be sent to the Rectory Office or brought to the Fall Festival Homecoming!  Please join us in celebrating her commitment to our parish.

BOOK FAIR:  Please join us in The Alley September 18-22 for the PTO Book Fair!

This is an annual tradition that supports the St. Agnes library!  In 2016, we earned over $2,500 for the library and received 400 books in addition to the cash donations.  Thank you, thank you to the many volunteers who assisted and made this fundraiser possible.

Open daily, 7:30 a.m.-4:00 p.m.
Friday, September 22, 7:30 a.m.-noon

SPECIAL PREVIEW on Saturday, September 16 (at the Fall Festival)

All proceeds benefit the St. Agnes library!  Thank you for your support!
