Angel Day is Friday

Friday will be our traditional St. Agnes Angel Day.  Children are encouraged to dress in red, white or green to celebrate the day.

Tuesday November 27th Is National Giving Tuesday

In honour of this day of giving, we are distributing Nutrition for Learning Cards that invite you to attach a Toonie to them and return them to the school on Tuesday November 27th.  All funds received will go directly to our St. Agnes school breakfast program.

The St. Agnes breakfast program is run daily, offering nutritious foods to all our students. This community style of program takes the stigma away from participating in the program and makes it easy for those in need to be able to focus on their learning rather than their hunger. 

If you are interested in providing other assistance to our school breakfast program, please reach out to us via volunteerstagnes@gmail.com.

You are welcome to join us for one, two or all the workshops.

Our first workshop is November 20th, 6:00-7:00 PM on “Grit” –  How To Be Strong In Tough Situations.

WE ALL HAVE AN UMBRELLA

… Life isn’t always sunny, and we spend a lot of energy wishing the storm clouds away, instead of properly protecting ourselves from the rain
