Catholic Schools Week
Thank you for celebrating Catholic Schools Week with us! This is a time for us to celebrate the enduring value of Catholic education and focus on the gift that provides quality education to America’s young people. Holy Angels School reaches out to the community to build awareness of what our school offers. We thank everyone for supporting our school: students, families, faculty, staff, volunteers, community supporters, and local and national leaders.
The theme of Catholic Schools Week this year, “Catholic Schools: Community of Faith, Knowledge and Service” encompasses several concepts that are at the heart of Catholic education. Schools are communities— small families in their own right, but also members of the larger community of home, church, city, and nation.
The new logo features a swirl of colors interacting around a cross, which is at the center of all Catholic education. The vibrancy of the colors and the movement and shadows in the logo portray the inner-connectivity and community life that are present in our Catholic schools.
Parents and friends, I would like to request you to pray with us as we are in the process of having a PRE-SCHOOL at HOLY ANGELS. We would like to extend our ministry to the 3-5 year old with a curriculum that will encourage individual skills and emerging interests in academics, creative expression, and outdoor learning. It is a curriculum that will prepare the young minds to begin Kindergarten and beyond.
Thank you, everyone, and let us continue to pray for all of our Catholic Schools throughout the world for we have a great mission to teach our young people and allow them to experience God and encourage them to serve other people in need.
Once again, thank you for choosing Holy Angels School. We ask you to invite your friends to join our community of faith as we teach our children as Jesus did.
Devotedly yours in Christ,
Sister Leonarda Montealto, OP

Adopt a Family Program
The Holy Angels School community has partnered up with New Life Center to help families in need. New Life Center is a regional health care system of six hospitals spanning the California coast from San Francisco area to Los Angeles.
Holy Angels School has now participated in this program for three years. The school was divided into four groups, consisting of eight to nine eighth grade leaders and forty other students. These groups represented the four families that we helped. We initially met to find out the information necessary to best help our selected families. Students were then asked to bring small donations of toys, clothes, canned foods or money. The eighth grade leaders took the initiative of preparing the gifts for the families. We were very pleased to have been able to contribute to this wonderful program which benefits members of our community. This process wasn’t easy but the fact that we were able to give to others makes everything worthwhile.
