Catholic Schools Week – 2013

Holy Angels joins schools throughout the country in celebrating Catholic Schools Week. The local theme this year is ”The Good News in Education”. With many changes taking place in public school across the state, Catholic schools continue to be the good news in what schools can provide.

In addition to a strong core curriculum, there is a continued emphasis at Holy Angels on fine arts and world languages. Holy Angels students use a variety of technologies as tools for learning. The Project Lead the Way curriculum offers a pre-engineering component for junior high students.

Over and above the curriculum, our Catholic faith is emphasized here at Holy Angels: strong moral values, Catholic social teaching and service, and respect for life. The students are very much involved in service to the community throughout the entire year. During Catholic Schools Week, we will celebrate many of the important aspects of our school which make it special…academics, faith formation, extra-curriculars, community building, family involvement.

The week’s activities will include:

Saturday (pre-week activity) – School Spirit Celebration with music, games, contests, food and fun (5:00-8:00pm)

Sunday – Distinguished Graduate Award presentation; Open House (10:30am-12:30pm)

Monday – Catholic Quiz Bowl (8:25 – primary, 9:10 – intermediate, 2:00 – jr high); Kindergarten–K3, K4, K5-RoundUp (6:00pm)

The RoundUp is for all incoming students for grades K3, K4 and K5. The program will begin in the Walnut Room followed by opportunities to visit classrooms. Registration materials will be available at the RoundUp. More information can be found on the school/parish website.

Tuesday – Lunch with Grandparents (11:45am – 1:00pm), followed by a performance by the HA Chorus

Wednesday – Area Celebration Mass at Cabrini

Thursday – Fun4All Day (ice skating, roller skating, tubing, bowling, and swimming)

Friday – Student/Faculty Basketball Game (1:40pm).

We are grateful to all of the members of Holy Angels Parish for their support of Catholic education as one of the ways that our community passes on our faith to the next generation.
