See you back here on April 1!

March Students of the Month

A shield provides protection to the one who bears it. Aquin Schools strive to provide each student with a shield of Responsibility, Respect, Faith, Leadership, Service, Knowledge and Character. Each month from October through April, Aquin is recognizing three students who display the month’s quality of the shield. Students are nominated by staff and faculty at both campuses and then selected by Administration. Winners are awarded a coveted 'Free Jean Day' coupon!

Leadership is March's shield and Aquin Schools are proud to announce their ‘Students of the Month’ for March: Senior High--(a tie!) Chloe Smith & Patrick Seas, Junior High--Hanna Broge, Elementary--Bode Peters.

If you are interested in learning more about Aquin’s ‘Guardian of the Shield’ sponsor program, or want to learn more about joining the Aquin family, please contact Laura at 815-235-3154 x 226.

Aquin Spring Break Office Hours

The Aquin Business Office, located at the High School Campus, will be open during Spring Break. Office hours Monday through Friday are 8am-1pm. St. Joe's Campus Office will be closed.

No Fooling--Shorts Season Begins April 1!

Starting April 1--which is the first day back after Spring Break--students at both campuses may wear shorts. Hopefully Mother Nature will cooperate and have temps warm enough to wear shorts!
