October 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!


Knowledge is October's shield and Aquin Schools are proud to announce their ‘Students of the Month’ for October: Senior High--Emma Holder, Junior High--Amelia Wenzel, 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.

Girls Basketball Home Tip-Off Tonight at 6!

That's right--the Lady DAWG Basketball team tips off their 2019-20 season tonight at home as they host the Forreston Lady Cardinals. The game starts at 6:00pm (not at 5:30pm as was listed on the Aquin web calendar--oops!). After claiming their 3rd Consecutive Regional Championship last year--and not losing any players to graduation--these Lady DAWGS are looking for the 4-Peat and more! Come out tonight and support them as they start their quest!

Let's Go LADY DAWGS!!!
