Honors and Awards

We are so proud of all of our students. They each possess special gifts and talents. Most recently, our students that have received special honors and awards are listed below.

2016-17 School Year


Kick Butts

We are pleased to announce that four of our St. Agnes School 8th Grade students were winners of the 2017 Chester County Tobacco Free Coalition’s Kick Butts MEME Contest! Congratulations to Maria Wolfer for taking first place; Madeline Ladd for placing third and Anna Eve Dolan and Kate Kelley for receiving Honorable Mention for their MEME’s.

On March 15th students in 6th, 7th and 8th grade across Chester County participated in Kick Butts Day. Kick Butts Day is a nationwide initiative that puts children and adolescents in charge of the effort to stop youth tobacco use. The Chester County PAYS data shows us that middle and high schools students are vaping (e-cigarettes, hookah pens, e-pens, etc.) more than they abuse any other substance besides alcohol. Because of these statistics, the Chester County Tobacco-Free Coalition (CCTFC) chose vaping as the theme of the Kick Butts Day 2017 MEME Contest.
Students in Mrs. Hall’s 8th Grade English Class were asked to participate by creating an original picture to show why vaping isn’t healthy or cool as part of this year’s contest. For those of you wondering – what is a Meme? Memes are captioned photos that are intended to be funny, often as a way to publicly ridicule human behavior.

Photos of Maria and Madeline’s winning MEME’s will be on display throughout school so be sure to check them out the next time you stop by St. Agnes School!

Thanks to members of the Chester County Tobacco Free Coalition Lindsay Smith (Chester County Health Department); Kaitlyn Genthert (Chester County Drug and Alcohol Coalition); and Bridget Marley as well as Janelle Diehl (Holcomb Behavioral Health Systems) for stopping by St. Agnes School to present our 8th graders with their awards!

Way to go girls! We are so proud of you and your efforts to teach students why vaping isn’t healthy or cool!
