Math students and parents: Did you buy a new TI calculator? Or still have the packing from a previous purchase? The TI Technology Rewards program offers educators the opportunity to collect points from calculator purchases. Please cut out and turn in the Rewards Program points from the package and give it to your math teacher or to Ms. Kelly in room 202. St. Agnes is then able to redeem these points for a wide variety of free TI products and services.

Welcome to all SAA Dads: We hope you all had a great summer because we have an exciting year full of events and volunteer opportunities for you and your daughter. Our goal is to get the most out of the time we have with our daughters through school programs and events; develop father-daughter activities that support the mission of our Academy; and foster the growth of our relationships with our daughters. We hope to jumpstart our year with our first meeting on Monday September 12 at 6 p.m. in the Cafeteria with guest Rick Wertz, speaking on "How to be a Faithful Father." After that we hope to see you on Sept. 14 at 7 a.m. for the Gifts of Learning Breakfast at the Junior League of Houston, 1411 Briar Oaks Lane. For more information and to RSVP, contact Ann Liddle, Director of Annual Giving.
