The New Year is often a time of reflection and many people think about their health. Setting SMART goals is a great way to help you make changes individually or together as a family.
SMART goals are:
Specific: A general goal such as “eating healthier” can mean something very different from one person to the next. Focusing your goal can be helpful; for example your focus may be “eating more vegetables and fruit.”
Measurable: Set goals that allow you to track your progress. It would be difficult to measure “eating healthier,” but something like “include a vegetable or fruit with each meal and snack” is easier to monitor.
Action-oriented: Focus your goals on the actions you will take to be successful. If lunchtime has been a challenge, the action may be “include a side salad or raw vegetable sticks at lunch and pack a fruit for snack.”
Realistic: Building healthy habits takes time and practice. Choose goals that are manageable. When you have achieved that goal, you can set a new one! Consider possible challenges that may get in the way and be prepared with strategies to overcome them.

Dear St. Agnes Families:
The St. Agnes Christmas program traditionally has been an evening Concert followed by a Family Social for our entire school community and their families. Due to scheduling conflicts, and despite our very best efforts, we have been unable to secure a venue large enough to accommodate an evening Christmas Concert this year.
Each classroom is preparing a performance for a daytime Christmas Concert that will be held on the afternoon of Thursday, December 20th in our school gymnasium. The Kindergarten Christmas Concert will begin at 1:15 P.M., followed by a brief intermission, allowing parents to leave, if they wish and the arrival of parents for our Grade 1-8 Concert which will begin at 2:00 PM.
St. Agnes School Council would also like to invite you and your family to join in the Family Advent Mass at 7:00 P.M. at St. Agnes Church. Immediately, following mass, we will be hosting a Family Social in the church basement.
Come celebrate our faith and the joy of the Christmas Season. We hope that you can join us next Thursday for both important events. Thank you for your continued support of St. Agnes School.

It is with sadness that we share with you that Mrs. Lasovich’s daughter Carly died today.
Carly is a graduate from St Luke Elementary and St David High School with the Waterloo Catholic District School Board. She was a student who brought so much joy to everyone she encountered. Her loving smile and her laughter was infectious.
Lord, our community is grieving. Help us with our sadness and give strength to all that suffer in their time of loss.
Students and staff will be praying for Carly and Mrs. Lasovich on Monday and our Advent liturgy on Friday will be celebrated in honor of the Lasovich family.
The flag at St Agnes will fly at half-staff as a sign of love and respect for Carly.
Please continue to pray for Carly, Mrs. Lasovich, their family and the rest of the Waterloo Catholic District School Board community during this very sad time.
St. Agnes Staff
