2013 Senior Class Needs YOU!
Our senior girls may be done with classes, but they have not reached their goal for the senior gift to SAA! They hope to raise $50,000 in order to establish the Class of 2013 Scholarship. With only 25% of our senior families participating so far, they need YOUR support! Visit www.st-agnes.org/ClassOf2013 today to make a gift in honor of a St. Agnes senior!

AP Online Scores for Students
This July, AP students will receive their scores online only. Students should sign up for a free College Board account at apscore.org, using their St. Agnes student identification number as their unique number and providing their email address on their answer sheets.
After the completion of each student’s final AP exam, they are given their student pack which has all of the vital information including their AP number. Please help your daughters put this in a secure place until July when the exam period is over and they will be able to access their scores. Students will need to remember their College Board account username and password, plus their AP number and their student ID number.
The term “helicopter parent” is becoming more and more popular in our society, and therefore we must ask ourselves the question: Is it possible to help our children too much? Check the recent New York Times article "When Does Helping Hurt?"
