AHA Principal Jennifer Moran

December 2017

Dear AHA Families, 

December is a busy month in so many ways! With mile markers such as the first marking period and Thanksgiving break behind us, students should remain focused and diligent at this midpoint of second quarter. Thank you to all of the parents and guardians who came to visit with teachers at our Conferences. Collaboration between teachers and parents is one of the most vital indicators of a student’s success and I am truly thankful that so many people take the opportunity to meet face to face with their daughter’s teachers. The work your student is producing right now is the strongest indicator her teachers will use in planning her placement for next year. If you are unsure of the pre-requisites and requirements for particular placement levels, or have questions about placement for next year, please consider reading the Curriculum Guide placed on the Principal’s page on PowerSchool or reach out to your student’s college counselor. Mid-quarter reports for this quarter will be mailed out on Monday, December 11th. Before your daughter leaves for Christmas break, she should be receiving outlines from her teachers that will help her prepare for her midterms.  

December is also a time of preparation as we await the coming of our Savior, Jesus Christ. We will gather as a community to celebrate the beginning of Advent on Monday, December 4th at our Advent Prayer Service. This also kicks off our toy drive. The seniors will gather one morning for the traditional lighting of the senior Christmas tree and juniors will mark a poignant moment in their high school careers as they celebrate their Ring Ceremony on Thursday, December 7th. On Friday, December 15th, we have an early dismissal at 12:30 and at 7:30 pm, we will celebrate the season with our Christmas Concert. I hope you will join us! Lastly, students from all grades will come together to celebrate Christmas on Tuesday, December 19th at the annual Student Council Christmas Party and the Winter Season Pep Rally. They will be dismissed at 12:00. Please remember that school is closed on Friday the 8th for the Feast of the Immaculate Conception AND on Wednesday, December 20th (Bishop’s Holiday).  

During this busy season, I pray that we find time to remember what is truly important in our lives and that your Christmas is filled with the gifts of peace, hope and love.

Merry Christmas,

Ms. Jean Mullooly

Principal
