October 2018

Dear Parents,

On October 2nd, students, faculty and staff will gather at Mass to celebrate the Feast of the Holy Angels. This is the precursor to a very busy month with important dates outlined below. May it also be the great beginning to a year full of blessings from the angels above.

By now, your daughters should be better acquainted with the pace and rhythm of their classes and coursework. It is almost time for Mid Quarter Reports which will be emailed to parents on the 12th. Reports will be sent for students who average below an 80. We encourage parents and guardians to discuss your student’s grades with her, but more importantly, to discuss her processes of learning. What is working? What isn’t? What needs to be adjusted? One of the most important parts of the learning process is the ability for students to reflect honestly on their progress. Teachers and counselors are here to offer advice and suggestions about different ways to approach school work and study skills.

Students in grades 9, 10, and 11 will participate in PSAT testing on Wednesday, October 10th. Please note the 12:30 p.m. dismissal! Students will need a good night’s sleep the night before and a healthy breakfast that morning.

Lastly, while our Foundation Day actually falls on the 24th, we will be celebrating this special day as a community on Friday, October 19th with a beautiful prayer service where we will bear witness to the sisters as they renew their vows. Please keep them in your prayers for this special occasion.

These are some noteworthy dates this month:

October 2: Giving Day and Feast Day
October 3: Town Hall meeting –information for upcoming building renovations
October 8: School Closed
October 10: PSATs and Senior Holiday
October 12: Mid Quarter Reports Mailed
October 15: School Closed
October 19: Foundation Day Celebration
October 26: Senior Holiday

I hope to see you at our Town Hall meeting on the 3rd as we share the plans for continued renovations in the school building. This is a pivotal time at Holy Angels when we are striving to upgrade aging facilities with the goal of supporting our exceptional educational programing. We cannot make this vision a reality without your help.

As always, I ask for your prayers as I keep you in mine.

 

Sincerely,

Jean Miller
