125th Anniversary T-shirt UPDATE

Thank you to all who ordered a shirt! If you ordered online, but have not already paid, please send in money ($20/shirt) with your child's name and grade on the envelope.


White Elephant Sale

On Saturday, May 9th the Mount Saint Agnes Academy Home and School Association will be hosting a White Elephant Sale in the Auditorium from 9:00 am - 2:00 pm.


There will be many reasonably priced treasures for sale, so this sale will be too good to miss!

RELAY FOR LIFE - May 29 & 30 - for 24 hours starting at 6:30 pm

MSA will be entering two teams for the Relay for Life and we encourage all of our parents and students to come out and support our teams by participating in the walk at National Stadium. Mrs. Wicks is working with high school students and Mrs. Moench is working with elementary and middle school students. If you would like to participate, please contact Mrs. Moench via email (smoench@msa.bm) to let her know your interest and when you would like to walk. Pledge sheets and waiver forms are available in the office. We need to have participation for 24 hours starting at 6:30 pm on Friday, May 29. As some of our staff and families have been touched by cancer, we are wanting to show our support for this very worthwhile endeavour. All participants must register and pay $10 by this Friday, May 8 to Mrs. Moench. If you plan on being sponsored, you must receive $100 worth of pledges in order to receive a t-shirt. Pledge sheets can be turned into the MSA Office or the Bermuda Cancer and Health Office on Point Finger Road.


Let's try to have an outstanding level of participation and receive recognition for our great school spirit!

Supplies Needed for Kindergarten/Early Learning

The use of loose parts and open ended materials is very important in a Reggio Emilia-inspired learning environment. The MSA Kindergarten and the Early Learning Program classes would like to stock our creative resource bank with many interesting items. These are outlined in the attached C&G document. Many thanks for your help!
