April 2018

Dear AHA Families,

Happy Easter! The busy month of April will begin when we return to school on April 9th. As a school community, we will celebrate the Resurrection of Jesus Christ our Savior on Thursday, April 12th. Grandparents are invited to join us for Mass and for a brief visit during the morning. Please be sure to register so we can make seating arrangements for Mass and lunch. For your convenience, there is a link in the AHA Weekly Connection email.

Report cards will be mailed on Friday, April 13th. Please remind your student that the 4th quarter counts just as much as the first three! This is the last opportunity students have before finals to pull up their averages. If your daughter has not met with success in a particular class, please encourage her to seek help from her teacher. It is not too late and any skills she learns now will carry over next year.

The College Counseling Office has arranged two significant events this month for students and their families. The first is Career Night, which is scheduled for Tuesday, April 17th at 7:00 p.m. in the Student Commons. This evening offers students the opportunity to hear from and meet alumnae professionals from various industries. The second is their notable College Fair on Tuesday, April 24th, from 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Over 100 colleges and universities will be in attendance. Students will have 45-minute lunch periods to walk through the fair and touch base with college representatives.

We are happy to share that on Wednesday, April 25 we are hosting Tom Kersting, psychotherapist, school counselor and author of Disconnected—How to Reconnect our Digitally Distracted Kids. In 2007, Tom noticed an increase in students being diagnosed with anxiety and ADD. He was intrigued by how devices, social media, and the digital world affect human behavior. He will share his alarming findings with us and offer tangible, helpful strategies designed to help students navigate their digital worlds. This important evening begins promptly at 7:00 p.m. Please park in the back and use the event doors near the student commons.

Please mark these three notable events of the month on your calendars: International Night, Food Truck Festival, and the Spring Concert. International Night is scheduled for Friday, April 20th and is completely produced by our students, who prepare food and entertainment representing their cultures. It is truly an evening of celebration and appreciation for the beautiful tapestry of our varying heritages. The Food Truck Festival, on Sunday, April 22nd, hosted by our Angels in the Arts parents (AITA,) proves to be a great gastronomically fun event and also includes top notch entertainment by our Angels. Lastly, the Spring Concert, on Friday April 27th at 7:00 p.m., will offer the sweet sounds of our Orchestra, Jazz Band, and Handbell Choir, as well as our Vocal Ensemble and Academy Concert Choir. I am looking forward to seeing you at these wonderful events.

Our community has been richly blessed with students and families who find Holy Angels to be a safe and secure school, and who respect the value of an education based on gospel values that “calls each woman to leadership that advances justice, peace, and the integrity of creation.” As always, I am grateful to you for entrusting your daughters to us.

Sincerely,

Jean Mullooly
Principal
