Rath new principal at St. Agnes School St. Agnes School will have a change in leadership this school year. Although not new to the school, Corinne Rath will take on the new role as the school's principal. She has taught at St. Agnes for 20 years.
"I'm looking forward to my new position as principal. I will miss teaching, but I plan to substitute whenever possible. I'd really like to extend a welcome to new or any community members who may wish to have their children attend St. Agnes School," she said.
St. Agnes School has been serving the St. Agnes Parish and community since 1961. The people of St. Agnes Parish have made a conscious decision to maintain a Catholic grade school, preschool through grade five.
This commitment reflects the belief that the church has a teaching mission that can best be carried out in a Catholic school setting.
The mission of St. Agnes School is to provide a Christ- centered, compassionate community in which to educate our children's minds, hearts, and spirits in the love of God, the pursuit of knowledge, the practice of gospel values, personal responsibility, and service to others.
Through Catholic education, the school, family and parish community together strive to empower our students to meet every circumstance of life with the attitude of Christ.
Fall registration for St. Agnes School (preschool-fifth grade) will be held in the school auditorium on Tuesday, Aug. 17, from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. Classes begin on Wednesday, Aug. 25, at 8:30 a.m.
