Parent- Student- Teacher conferences: Thursday November 7th, 2019

Online booking tool for appointments this year!         https://stagnes.schoolappointments.com/

A detailed instruction guide is available by clicking School Appointments – St. Agnes Parent Instructions.

We are looking forward to the upcoming Parent-Student-Teacher conferences on November 7th. These are available for all students, Kindergarten to Grade 8. This is a great opportunity to foster strong relationships between home and school with the goal of collectively supporting student achievement. With this in mind, we strongly encourage you to bring your child to the conferences. Students who take ownership for their learning demonstrate a better understanding of their strengths and areas of need. This, in turn, helps students develop meaningful next steps in their learning journey. Therefore, we hope you are able to bring your child to the conferences on Thursday November 7th.

This year, all conferences will be booked online using School Appointments. You can book an appointment with your child’s classroom teacher, as well as your child’s Planning Time teacher (JKK- grade 3) or French teacher (grade 4-8).  A direct link to set up your online appointments is provided below:

If you have any difficulty booking appointments, please do not hesitate to contact Mrs. McGlynn in the Main Office.

We look forward to meeting with you on Thursday November 7th, 2019.

Kindergarten Classroom Observations

Parents/ guardians of Kindergarten students may choose a classroom observation rather than a formal conference. Classroom observations take place over a few weeks in November in order to accommodate parent/ guardian work schedules. Please look for detailed information in your child’s communication bag later this week regarding Kindergarten observations.

Scholastic Book Fair

This week is the start of our Scholastic Book Fair at St. Agnes. Stop by to introduce yourself to Ms. Boll, our Librarian, during Parent-Student-Teacher conferences. She will be in the Learning Commons from 3:50pm to 8:00pm on Thursday November 7th. Sales will continue next week from Monday November 11th through to the end of day on Wednesday November 13th.

Fitness Frenzy Update

Our Fitness Frenzy fundraiser is only days away! Students have been working hard to “Get Caught Moving” at school, and they are earning ballots for prizes in the process. We also know that students are tracking all their physical activity outside school as well. Such an amazing connection for our Healthy Schools certification efforts this year! The efforts of our entire school community to support this school wide fundraiser are truly appreciated.

We are getting closer to our next school wide prizes of an extra recess, and lunch time dance party. Keep those pledges coming!!!!

Consent to Participate

The Consent to Participate form for Fitness Frenzy was sent home in paper copy with each student earlier this week. Please complete and return this form by Thursday so your child can physically participate in the activities. Students are not required to raise funds but we do require written consent to participate. The final date to complete this consent will be Thursday November 7th. This can be completed when you come to the school for Parent-Student-Teacher conferences.

Prizes…so far!

We have been blessed with tremendous generosity from our parent community. So far, we have received the following donations of prizes: Cineplex giftcards, Flag Raiders packages, SkyZone passes, Rangers tickets & team store gift card, Frederick Bowl passes, luggage, Starbucks gift pack, and so much more! If you would  like to donate a prize you are welcome to drop by the main office to speak with Mrs. McGlynn. We will gladly accept any donations you would like to contribute to our school wide fundraiser.

If you are interested in volunteering on Friday November 8th, please contact the main office to leave your name and contact information. We will forward this information to the Fitness Frenzy lead coordinator.
