A day in the life at St. Agatha Catholic School


  • If your child is walking to School please ensure they are symptom free for school. Also letting them know that when they arrive they should come through the walk thru playground gate, go to the health check adult (Mr. Dennis, Mr. Stephens, Dr. Prevot, or Mrs. Jones) to have their temperature taken and that we will ask them health screening questions as well.

  • Remember to bring Kids' own lunch and a water bottle. Kids can't use the fountain to drink, they can refill the bottle at the station.

  • If your child has to miss School due to illness or due to quarantine after a trip, please be sure to send an email to the teacher and School office. Communication between School and Families is very important to be able to keep everyone safe.

  • Please make sure to read through the FAQ section in the School Reopen Plan. It has a lot of great information such as: arrival/dismissal, lunch time questions, and what we will do if there are cases of Covid.

  • Remember to bring back the COVID TESTING CONSENT.


Next week, on MONDAY 22nd from 2:30 to 4:30pm, we will have our SUPPLY PICK-UP event.

Please remember this will happen every other week!

If you need to pick-up your child(ren) supplies in a different moment of the day please contact the front the desk.

Faith and Cultural Diversity Co.

The Faith and Cultural Diversity Committee would like to invite you into deeper prayer this Lent by completing the 33-day devotional to Jesus through Mary according to St. Louis de Montfort. The consecration will begin this Saturday, February 20th, and conclude March 25th, The Annunciation. Each day begins with prayer, scripture, and a short reflection that brings us closer to Jesus through our blessed mother, Mary. You can either follow along by purchasing St. Louis de Monfort's Total Consecration to Jesus Through Mary or by following along on the website below. We will have biweekly meetings to reflect on our journey and walk through this consecration together. If you would like to join us in our devotional, contact Maddie McGraw at

Thank you and may God Bless you all!


Daily Mass Wednesday February 17th



Also this year we give out Lenten Rice Bowls for each of our students along with a class collection jar. We encourage students and families to bring in some loose change every week.

We are hoping to collect around $1200 this year.

All money brought in should be put in the class collection jar, which will be emptied weekly.

The class with the most money brought in gets a free dress with a theme of their choice.

Thank you!
