An Update from the Headmaster
Thank you to all who have walked across our crosswalk on Lafond Avenue these past couple weeks (either at the corners or across from door 1)! Our next step will be to begin treating Lafond as a One-Way before and after school and dropping off only on the school-side of Lafond along the curb. For anybody who drops off on the North side of Lafond in the meantime, please make sure that you and your student(s) cross the street at the cross walk in the middle of Lafond or at one of the two corners. Thanks for your cooperation and assistance!
Thank You for Giving!
Hugely Successful Aggie Give Day 2019
THANK YOU for giving! As of noon on Thursday, we raised $128,774 for Saint Agnes Students!
*223 donors showed their Aggie Spirit!
*Bottomless Thanks to our 31 Power Hour Donors who will receive exclusive Aggie mugs!
*$41,960 in donations were matched dollar-for-dollar.

Gifts that continue to be given will still count toward our Aggie Give Day total! With just over $8,000 left in matching funds, any new donor or increased gift can qualify.

Thank you for helping our students by providing student scholarships, supporting athletics and fine arts, and creating opportunities for faith formation.
A Very Special Gift
Aggie “givers” came to us in all ages and amounts on Aggie Give Day. One donation that stands out is from a third-grader who had $6.47 of her own money that she asked to be put toward the lower school music program . Yes! We can do that and we are grateful for gifts of all sizes! Perhaps you too could make an offering… be it a cup of fancy coffee or a micro-brew pint. There is still time to continue your support of Saint Agnes School – join your fellow Aggies, young and old, to help us reach our goal of $150,000!

Car Raffle Roll-Out - Tuesday, November 26
One way for our students to express gratitude for their school involves selling raffle tickets for the car raffle! This raffle is the only major fundraiser our students are allowed to do for their school, and we ask that you help motivate them to sell their tickets as soon as possible. Please reinforce the message that we will be giving them next Tuesday, November 26—namely, our school relies on the income from the raffle to provide the programs and education they receive; without that income, we can’t afford to fund some of our offerings. Please help them sell their raffle tickets with a joyful, grateful, and gracious disposition.

Fliers regarding our all-school fundraiser were mailed to your households last week. Visit the links for more information, or please contact Mrs. Laurie Weyandt with questions at 651925-8812.
