Letter from the Dean of Students

Dear Parents and Students,

Welcome to the 2019-2020 school year at Holy Angels! I am looking forward to beginning this year and cannot wait to see what amazing things our students will accomplish.

The Dean of Students’ office is responsible for many day-to-day facets of life at Holy Angels, such as keeping attendance records, working alongside the Athletic Director to oversee our athletic program, and the safety and security of our community. The Dean’s office is also responsible for aspects of student life outside of the classroom, such as supervising over 90 different clubs and activities where our students can challenge themselves to try something new, learn how to become a leader, or practice a new skill just for fun. While lessons in the classroom are very important, at Holy Angels, we want our students to have every opportunity to be well rounded and by offering this vast array of clubs and activities, the girls are bound to find something that speaks to them.

This year, we will be implementing our new daily schedule. Each day the students will attend their classes but also participate in our Community Time. On certain days of the week this block of time will be structured, allowing students the opportunity to meet with their clubs, participate in a school-wide Advisory program or enjoy some type of wellness activity. On other days, students will have time to catch up on assignments, meet with teachers for guidance on coursework or spend time with their classmates in a more casual setting. This Community Time will continue to teach our students how to manage their time appropriately as well as help them understand that personal responsibility is a large part of leading a successful life. By utilizing this time appropriately each student will be able to balance their coursework and extracurricular activities in an efficient way.

Last year, the members of our athletic program had a very successful and exciting year, proving that hard work, passion, and dedication can lead to outstanding success. Among the many accomplishments of our athletes, both as members of a team and individually, we had all-league, county and state recognition. While achieving these impressive accomplishments, our student athletes always maintained a high level of respect toward their competitors and officials, and showed that the AHA core values are present in all athletic settings, as well as in the classroom.

The Academy of the Holy Angels is a place where young ladies learn to be empowered and resilient; where they create long-lasting friendships and where, with hard work and determination, they overcome obstacles and achieve success. Our mission is to educate the whole person. We want our students to be academically successful but also strong, happy, resilient, and compassionate persons. Each day, we integrate the teachings of the School Sisters of Notre Dame into our lessons and programs and hope that our students take these teachings out into the world with them, never forgetting that they will always have a home at Holy Angels.

 

Sincerely,
Mrs. Andréa Beyer
Dean of Students
