Michael G Sternig Award Presented

On Thursday, the Michael G. Sternig Award was presented to a 7th grade student that daily lives the quote set by Mr. Sternig, "Do the right thing because it is the right thing to do". This year's winner embodies, and continues to grow, in the values of faith, knowledge, values and respect. Not only is she knowledgeable about her faith, but she practices kindness and respect continuously, serving as a role model for her peers.

Noreen Laufer Award Presented

The Noreen Laufer Award was presented in Mass today. This award is presented to a studet in grades 1-7 who “regularly exhibits a positive attitude and touches the lives of others around them.” This valued, yearly award comes to our students from the Jim Laufer family in memory of their former dedicated wife, mother of five, and treasured second grade teacher here at Holy Angels.

This year’s nominee was nominated by Mrs. Scheit. This student is not the loudest in the room, nor do they draw attention to themselves or try to be the center of focus in a classroom. However, they work hard and always seem to have a positive attitude about them. This student has a gentle, compassionate spirit in and out of the classroom. They notice when someone needs a friend and can always be counted on to help when needed. Their approach toward learning is thoughtful and inquisitive, always thinking and putting forth their best effort. She is a joy to teach because she comes to school eager and interested!

Congratulations to this year's winner: Nora Sternig, Grade 3

Author Visits 2nd Grade

Curt Casetta, the author of the Bluebell books, came to visit with the 2nd grade students during their library time this week. He talked about being an author, his cat Bluebell, and the students asked him questions. He even autographed some cards for the students. There is a Bluebell book in the library that uses Holy Angels as part of story. Check it out if you get a chance. Thank you Mrs. Jurss for making this happen.

3k & 4K Picnic

8th Grade VB & BB vs Teachers

Last week the 8th grade girls VB team took on the teachers in their annual game. The teachers tried their best but the girls won in dominating fashion.

This week the 8th grade boys BB team played the teachers. The teachers made it close....losing by only 4 points. A big shout out to the boys for their patience and giving the teachers the space and opportunity to shoot baskets. I am sure they would have dominated.

3K & 4K Bridging Party

"v" is for Volunteering

2nd grade students used the letter "V" in the ABC Countdown to focusing on service by Volunteering. Because the weather did not cooperate, they chose to volunteer inside the school and collected trash and recycling from classrooms and my office. Thank you for keeping our school clean.
