Resources to Support Learning for parents, educators, & kids of all ages

Kenton County Public Library has created a new position to help support educators and parents with schooling needs. Lise Tewes, a former teacher turned librarian, has been named School Services Coordinator. Please read about this new role HERE. Lise has only been in this role a few weeks but has already been in contact with many educators and parents on how the library can support their needs. This includes getting student library cards to the children in your schools.

2020 Smiles and Miles 5K Run/Walk and
Frog Hop Family Challenge

We are excited to announce that Saint Agnes will host the 10th annual Smiles & Miles 5K Run/Walk in honor of Maria Schaffstein as well as the Katie Stewart Frog Hop, but it will look a little different.  Both events will be virtual.  This means the events can take place anywhere, indoors or out between Friday Sept. 11 – Sunday Sept. 20. 

The 5K Run/ Walk will continue to be open to individuals of all ages and fitness levels.  The Frog Hop will be a Family Challenge, an opportunity for the entire family to spend time together and complete 10 miles of activity over 10 days, tracking progress as you go.

Registration and more information for both events can be found at and our Facebook page, Smiles & Miles – Maria Schaffstein 5K.    Additional questions can be submitted to smilesandmiles5K@gmail.comRegister now until August 27th to guarantee a commemorative t-shirt.  Registration will remain open until September 20; however, shirts cannot be guaranteed.   

We need your help to make the events successful.  Since the events are virtual, please share with friends and family outside of the area to help support the students of Saint Agnes School.  They are encouraged to participate in the events or “sponsor” your family using the Donations option on the site.  All proceeds of the events go towards scholarships, financial aid for students, support for teachers, and the Saint Agnes Boosters.  We also welcome corporate sponsors.  If your company or family would be interested in being an Event Sponsor, please let us know.  

Due to current changing circumstances, we may need to make a few changes along the way.  Don’t forget to like us on Facebook to stay up to date on the events.
