National News!

Congrats and good luck to the Freeport Stix 14U who claimed the USSSA AA State Championship last weekend and who are headed to the USSSA AA National World Series in Kansas City this weekend. There are 5 Aquin Bulldogs on the team----Couy, Wil, Zac, Jonah and Jackson--and 1 'Twisted Pretzel' (once was a pretzel, but now is a bulldog)--Coach Holder. Read about their number 1 national ranking in the Journal Standard article linked here.

'4-Peat' Baseball Champion Shirts

Please remember to pick-up your shirts if you haven't already. Thanks to the Boosters for providing shirts for all Varsity players and coaches.


If you didn't get a shirt and want one, we will have a limited supply of 'extras' coming in soon. Our printer ordered a few extra and is printing them for us, as we've had a few requests for shirts again. Once we have them, we'll let you know what sizes and quantities are available. The shirts are $15 each.


If you'd like to reserve a size, please email laura.diemer@aquinschools.org and you will be put on a list. Hopefully we'll be able to fill your request. Any remaining shirts will be available in the Spirit Shop.

Fundraising Update!

Watch for more information coming this week on a

brand-new look--and idea in fundraising at Aquin.
It's success depends on you!

Parking Tag Reminder

  1. Seniors who have graduated should return their parking tags. Send it in with a sibling, drop it off yourself (we'd love to see you), or put it in the mail--whatever works for you! Our supply is low and we love to recycle whenever possible.
  2. All students who drive to school should be prepared to fill out a car registration form when school begins. If you have turned 16, and plan to drive to school, you must have a tag. Forms and tags are available in the Student Office. All vehicles must have a parking tag on the rear-view mirror. Vehicles that do not display a tag may be towed at owners expense.
  3. New tags are $5.
  4. Renewal is $3.
