Plaques at St. Augustine School

There are a couple of plaques at St. Augustine School that I need to include in my continuing series of plaques. The one below reads:
Celebrating 100 years of Catholic Education Saint Augustine School 1903-2003
Donated by Saint Augustine Cub Scout Pack #3197 & Senior Girl Scout Troop #191
 The rock on which this plaque is set is in a little garden in front of the McKinley Street entrance to the school.

 The dedication is for the flag pole, which is not well shown above, but is shown below.

The cross on the wall of the school under its name was discussed here. It now also has a plaque to go with it:
This original cross, saved by Tony Nagel, was on the first St. Augustine School Building from 1903 to 1954.
One final and very recent plaque is next to the front door:
New front entrance donated in memory of Paul Nagel by family and friends.
This week has been Catholic Schools Week, so it seemed an appropriate time for this post.
