• The Leader in Me initiative is implemented school-wide. The Lighthouse Team at St. Agnes is part of the Leader in Me program and is open to all 7th and 8th graders. Interested students had to apply and experience an interview with a panel of leaders. In 2017, each student and classroom is making their own mission statements. And, school-wide WIGs were announced (WIGs are wildly important goals). WIG #1: The teachers and staff conducted a survey to record how many students responded to any form of greeting with a response and eye contact. Results showed we were only at 53%! We set a goal to make it to 90%. WIG #2: The whole school is to read for 250,000 minutes in one month!
