Principal's Message

September 1, 2018

One Body, One Spirit, One Community….Unity!

As our new school year is about to get underway, I keep thinking about a recent professional development session I attended with our diocesan Principals. The presenter shared with us his thoughts about integrating Jesus’ Golden Rule into our communities. He offered a slight spin worthy of considering. “Do unto others as they would have you do unto them.”  This shift offers us a chance to truly consider the needs of those around us. Our daily and regular interactions with others can impact so much. By considering my neighbors needs first, it frees me to treat everyone with dignity, respect and compassion. This is a truly noble cause. I am hopeful that we can unite in our common purpose to serve each other for everyone’s benefit.

“Every day is a new opportunity. You can build on yesterday’s success or put its failures behind and start all over again. That’s the way life is, with a new game everyday, and that’s the way baseball is. “ It has been said that sports imitates life. This quote from Bob Feller certainly helps frame a healthy perspective as our new school year is about to get underway. Let me take this opportunity to welcome our new families and returning families. I know this is going to be a great school year! Yours in Christ, Mr. Michael Connell Principal

Classroom spotlight:

Ms. Tocci’s 3rd Graders

We are super excited for our visit this Friday from Holy Angels alumni Daniel Bayley, who will be sharing with us his journey from Holy Angels to working at Nickelodeon!

Our 3rd Graders were asked “What do you want to be when you grow up and how will Holy Angels help you get there?

Aidan- I want to be a wrestler so PE will help me to get in shape.

Ava- I want to be a teacher. My second grade teacher Mrs. Kaspar was so nice and helped me with reading, so I want to be like her.

Brianna- I want to be a police officer and working hard on my reading will help me pass the police test.

Sebastian- I want to be a soccer goalie. Mrs. Messina helps me practice soccer in PE. I also want to be a mechanic so I will have to work hard on math in school.

Grace- I want to be a doctor so I have to practice science and math.

Olivia- I want to be a fashion designer so I have to pay attention during math class, especially when we learn about measurement.

Ray J- I want to be a video game programmer, so I can learn a lot during technology and math.

Aurora- I want to be a gymnastics teacher, so I can practice my stretches in PE.

Amelia- I want to be a teacher like my favorite teacher Mrs. Keegan. She helped me learn how to write better. 

Gio- I want to be an engineer, an inventor and a singer. Learning about history can help me learn about inventions that have already been made.

Layla- I want to be a teacher like Mrs. Keegan who taught me to love reading and writing.

Raymond D- I want to be a police officer like my dad. I can learn a lot during social studies class about how to help people.

Josselyn- I want to be a dance teacher. I can learn to be a better speller so I can write the programs for the dance recitals. 

Dylan- I want to be a soccer player. I can practice in PE and Fast athletics.

Kevin- I want to be a video game programmer. I can practice with Ms. Mitchell in technology.

Adriana- I want to be a singer. I can learn from Mrs. Brennan in music class and glee club.

Samantha- I want to be a scientist. I’m lucky to have Ms. Tocci as my teacher because she loves science too.

Madison- I want to be a vet. I can learn about animals using the computer in technology.

Luke- I want to be a soccer player and hope to be on the Holy Angels soccer team someday. 

Adriana G- I want to be a dance teacher. Math can help me learn to count the beats in a song when I’m dancing.

Alexander- I want to be a scientist so I hope we do a lot of experiments in school.

Kimberly- I want to be a teacher like Mrs. Schultz, she was so kind to me.

Natalia- I don’t know what I want to be yet, but I think school will help inspire me.

Joseph- I want to be a firefighter, in the military, a police officer, hockey player, an inventor and a director. So I guess I better just be a great student all the time to do all of that!

We can’t wait to see all of your dreams come true 3rd Grade!
