School Mass

At last week’s school Mass, having an “attitude of gratitude” was the theme of Fr. Paguaga’s homily. Using eggs as an example, he asked if our attitude is that of the “joy-filled, grateful egg” or the “rotten, sad-looking egg.”

Accreditation Visit

St. Agnes Academy’s accrediting agency, the FCC, recently came to visit our school for three days. At the conclusion of their visit they delivered a preliminary report based on their classroom observations, evidence review, and interview with stakeholders (parents, student, teachers, and pastor). In their report, the visiting team commended us for our commitment and dedication to the accreditation process. They were impressed with the thought, time, and effort that were put into gathering evidence, analyzing data, and writing the seven-year action plan. In their exit report they validated our findings, and the faculty and staff celebrated the great success of the visit!

Thanksgiving Food Drive

St. Agnes is working on its annual Thanksgiving Food Drive, also known as the “Miracle on Harbor Drive.” Each student is asked to bring at least one grocery bag full of Thanksgiving food items to donate to needy families at the Redlands Christian Migrant Association (RCMA). In order to facilitate the purchase of these bags, many students have taken field trips to our local Winn-Dixie to pre-package the food items in each bag. We look forward to delivering the food and providing a Thanksgiving feast for 600 families!

In addition, we would like to give special thanks to the manager of Winn-Dixie, Jose Llanes, who has helped us immensely over the past five years. Mr. Llanes always provides what we need for this food drive, including the Winn-Dixie food truck that helps transport all the bags. We truly could not do this without his help!
