April 2018

Dear AHA Families,

Happy Easter! In the words of our foundress Blessed Theresa Gerhardinger, “May the peace and grace of the Lord be with us all.” (Trust & Dare, April 17th) On April 12th, we will celebrate our Easter liturgy and welcome the grandparents of our freshmen and junior classes. Grandparents’ Day is always one of my favorite events here at Holy Angels and I look forward to sharing this special day with our families.

Just before the break, we enjoyed Angelic Evening and began our efforts to raise funds for our auditorium renovation. Many thanks to the many members of our school community and beyond who worked so hard to make this evening a success!

Let us hope that April will mean the end of snowstorms! The last month has proven to be very challenging for all of us with snow days and delays and I thank everyone for their patience and cooperation. The decision to close school is never an easy one but it is always made with the safety of our school community in mind.

The month of April and the arrival of Spring, is a busy one for us at AHA. Once we return from our Easter break, our calendar includes Grandparents’ Day (April 12th), Alumnae Tea (April 15th), Spring Open House (April 18th), AITA Food Truck (April 22nd) and our Spring Concert (April 27th). Details for these and all school events can be found on our website.

Spring is also the season of college acceptances and I congratulate our Class of 2018 on their impressive accomplishments. Congratulations are due to the AHA College Counseling Office and to our faculty as well!

As we begin the last quarter of this school year, I would like to share the following Easter prayer for all of us here at Holy Angels:

Lord, the resurrection of Your Son
has given us new life and renewed hope.
Help us to live as new people
in pursuit of the Christian ideal.
Grant us wisdom to know what we must do,
the will to want to do it,
the courage to undertake it,
the perseverance to continue to do it,
and the strength to complete it.
