Wednesday’s A Walk In Their Sneakers event has been cancelled due to weather.
As we approach the end of another successful school year, preparations have slowly begun to ensure that our class structures are in place for September. Preparing class lists is a process that involves hours of work, on behalf of all staff, to ensure that the needs of all our students are met. Lists are fluid documents that may be changed and revised several times from now until the beginning of school in September.
Each new school year is a tremendous opportunity for students to meet new friends and expand their circle of acquaintances. Our goal is to place a child where they will achieve the most success academically while trying to balance their social development. A balanced class reflects the diversity and needs of our school community and all our students.
A great deal of thought and reflection goes into the placement of each child. Many factors are considered in student placement including academic abilities, social groupings, and gender ratio. In addition, we consult Board and Ministry of Education guidelines.
The teachers and administration take great care to ensure, to the best of our ability, that all students’ needs are met. Since it is very difficult to honour requests from parents as well as make the most prudent decisions for all students in our care, we will not be accepting classroom requests for the 2019-2020 school year.
We ask that you trust that the staff will continue to make professional decisions on placements that are in the best interests of all the students at St. Agnes.
All orders including payment MUST be received in the St. Agnes office by THURSDAY, APRIL 25th at 1 PM at the latest.
Hello St. Agnes Community, April 2019
I am sending you this newswire to let you know I have decided to retire in June 2019. I write this letter with mixed emotions, as I have really enjoyed my career as an educator and especially my time at St. Agnes School which is such a wonderful school. I often felt like I could continue here forever! I consider myself extremely fortunate to have had the priviledge of serving this school community. I have witnessed such growth in our students over the last 5 years and the staff are wonderful in providing such consistently great opportunities for our students. I will miss this school family very much and I wish continued successful years ahead for the entire St. Agnes School community.

Dear St. Agnes Families,
As we approach the Easter Long weekend, where many of us will be spending time with family and friends, we wanted to remind you that our Minor Fundraiser this year is going to come to a close on Tuesday, April 23rd.
Please ensure that your children return their forms for Stemmler’s and Vesseys back to school on the 23rd, in order to help us put in the orders on time.
Thank you for your support, and we are looking forward to sending an updated communication to you on the status of our Playground Revamp later in May.
With gratitude, and wishing you and your loved ones a joyous Easter long weekend.
Your School Council
Just a friendly reminder to please use the front door when accessing the school at anytime during the day.
We still want to ensure student safety so we are asking that you do not walk onto the school yard when accessing the school.
Unfortunately, this means you will have to park at the church and walk around the school to the front entrance.
Thank you for working with us as we iron out the glitches of this construction project.
Just a quick reminder that beginning on Monday and until the end of the school year, our bus loading and unloading zone will be on Bluevale St (due to construction on Neilson Ave). This will cause much more congestion on Bluevale St. We ask parents to please use the church parking lot when picking up children as there will be NO STOPPING on Bluevale St. Also, because of this arrangement, more students will be walking on the sidewalk by the primary entrance. Parents are asked to stand on the other side of the chain link fence when they are picking up their children so as to lessen the congestion.
