'Red Out' Nights

In honor of Emily Fleming of Stillman Valley and Mr. Andy Conderman of Amboy who lost their lives in a car accident on Friday, Aquin will be having two “red out” games this week:
  • Thursday Night Volleyball v. Milledgeville Missiles . 5:00
  • Friday Night Football v. Durand Bulldogs . 5:30
There will be a 50/50 on both evenings, with the proceeds going to the families involved. Please wear red and remember to keep their families and friends in your prayers.

We've got #41 . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . Do I hear #42?

Just assigned our 41st 'Guardian of the Shield' keytag this morning! To learn more about the program, download a brochure--or print the contract to register, click here.

We thank you for your support!

Congrats DAWG Volleyball!

Your Aquin Lady Dawgs posted a victory at AFC last night . . . WOO HOO!!!

High School Campus Parent Night is TONIGHT

We will meet in the cafeteria at 6:00 p.m. for introductions and brief presentation.

Parents & students will follow the student’s every day class schedule.

  • Following your student’s schedule, you will experience what his/her day looks like.
  • Periods 1-10
  • 5 minutes in each class
  • Teachers will go over syllabus, expectations, academic goals, etc.
  • Families will have the normal 3 minutes passing time to each class.
  • The bell system will signal all class changes.

Before the presentation or after 'class', stop at our 'Uniform Donation' table and pick up some FREE khakis, polos, sweatshirts and more. All items have been brought to the Aquin office by generous alumni families to be passed on to current 'uniform-wearing' Bulldogs.

Becca’s Closet is now a nationwide organization that honors her memory by providing free formal dresses for any girl, size 0 to size 28. Becca’s Closet of Rockford is the only active chapter in Illinois and has collected over 2000 dresses since it opened.
