Our relentless perseverance to shape students of virtue in heart, soul and mind
Last week, our school community held our second annual “Race for Education” event. Although the proceeds from this fundraiser may not have reached the status of Chris Garner’s net worth, the event nearly reached our goal of $30,000 in support of the best Catholic school in Baltimore. Each family was asked to solicit donations from friends, co-workers, fellow church members and extended family members - all with the goal of providing essential revenue for St. Agnes. On “Race Day”, our students were organized by grade level groups and completed laps around the gymnasium with a frenzied energy that would rival those runners who participated in last weekend’s Baltimore Marathon. As an included part of our “Race Day”, the students who collected the most funds received recognition for their success and were invited to announce the total money raised. As of the day of the event, we sat at less than $1000 shy of our goal. And although “Race Day” has since passed, we are still accepting donations towards surpassing our goal. So if you are interested to contributing to this fundraiser, please contact our Advancement Director, Katie Wilder at email@example.com. I would like to thank Katie and Allison Joyce for their tireless efforts in leading such a successful fundraiser.
As Catholic schools, we take great pride in being good stewards of our resources as we provide an excellent faith based education at a price tag nearly $6,000 less than the average cost to educate a child within the state of Maryland. To do so, we rely on the generous support of our community to help offset this difference.
The love we have for the children of St. Agnes, the hope filled optimism we have for their bright future, and the relentless perseverance we have for shaping students of virtue in heart, soul and mind; guides our mission as a Christ centered and academically inspiring educational program. We are truly blessed!
