We had quite an eventful weekend at St. Angela. Congratulations to our girls’ flag football team. They reached the quarter finals of the tournament. We are very proud of them. Special thanks to Kyle Strander and David Hurd for coaching. The Lorraine Hess concert Friday night was very uplifting and filled with the spirit of the season. It was great to see the students have an opportunity to participate! We also had our 5th Grade Family Mass yesterday. It was great to see so many of you there, especially as we prepare and pray together during this Advent Season. I look forward to the 4th Grade Level Mass which will be held on Sunday, January 12th at the 9:30 Mass. We also thank our Children’s Choir for doing such a beautiful job of singing at these grade level Masses.
You are reminded that Student Council is sponsoring a Dress Down Day to benefit Fr. Marlon’s family. They lost their family home in the recent Philippines storm. It will be held this Wednesday, December 11th. Fr. Marlon’s favorite color is yellow.
A weather station was installed at SAMS on Thursday, August 21, 2008. It is located on the roof of the school, just above the school office. Contributions from the Co-op paid for all expenses. So now you can check the live (real time) weather at the school 24/7/365 by going to the live weatherstation link. More information to follow.
