HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY!
"I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me."  ~Philippians 4:13


*RWD Day videos (4) posted under "Resources".  In addition, "like us" on Facebook (St. Agnes Cathedral School - Rockville Centre).  There's a beautiful video of grade 2 singing "We Are" by Kari Jobe.

*Shopping for Communion clothes?  Here are coupons to Cathy's Touch in Merrick you can use & share!  $10 coupon 2017.pdf

 
*We're beginning Sacrament prep!!  It is imperative that your child attend Mass & use the responses needed for their upcoming sacraments.  These can be found under "Resources".  All Liturgy of the Word responses need to be known for Reconciliation (3/11).


*Home access has been given to Think Central (Go Math & Journeys).  This is great for extra practice in math, reviewing our weekly story, or for printing pages when your child is absent or the page is forgotten.  The direct link can be found under Resources.

*Children should be using the Fact Dash website (under Resources) to practice their facts & increase their speed.

*As cooler weather approaches, the windows remain open & it can be chilly in the classroom.  School sweaters or gym sweatshirts may be worn over their uniform.

*A REMINDER THAT ALL TESTS (EXCEPT SPELLING & READING) NEED TO BE SIGNED & RETURNED!

*NOT SURE WHEN THE CALENDAR GETS UPDATED?  SIGN UP FOR EMAIL ALERTS ON THE CALENDAR PAGE BY CLICKING ON THE ENVELOPE ICON.
