February 2018

Dear AHA Families, 

When you receive this letter, we will already be in the throes of Catholic Schools Week. We excitedly anticipate celebrating Mass with Cardinal Tobin on Thursday, February 1st. We will then bring the week to a close in an assembly lead by alumna guest speaker Emily Wallace Ebo from the class of 2004. Emily will share how Catholic Education, and specifically Holy Angels, gave her the tools and moral foundation to help her navigate her work with the World Vision Organization. Catholic Schools Week gives us the opportunity to reflect on the gifts that Catholic education affords our children. Thank you for visiting with us this week and for entrusting your daughters to us!

By now you have received your daughter’s report card. At this point, students have demonstrated a half year’s work to their teachers and it is time to plan for next year. Teachers will finalize course placement so that College Counselors can begin the process of working with you and your student to build the most appropriate course schedule for next year. Teachers and Counselors work very hard to ensure that students are placed according to their actual performance, rather than the promise of possible performance.

February was chosen as Black History Month in 1926, acknowledging the birthday of Abraham Lincoln and Frederick Douglass. Students in our Black and Hispanic Cultural Society will be leading us as we celebrate Black History Month by sharing prayers, displays and inspiring quotations and announcements honoring the accomplishments of Black Americans throughout our history.

February is a short month and will seem even shorter because school will be closed during the week of February 19th through the 23rd. We will begin the season of Lent on the very same day we remember St. Valentine. Students will have the opportunity to receive ashes at our Lenten prayer service on Wednesday, February 14th. You are all in my prayers as we enter the Lenten season of renewal.  

Sincerely,

Ms. Jean Mullooly
