Principal's Message


Please join me in this prayer which I shared with our students as we finished our wonderful school year. I hope you have a happy and healthy summer!

At the end of this school year we give thanks to God: For all the teaching and learning that have taken place in our school, both in and out of the classroom.

For the talents and gifts that have been shared and the challenges that have been faced. For the burdens that have been lifted and the hurts that have been healed.

For the respect and care that have been given. We give thanks for the friendships that have just be- gun and for those that have grown.

For the faith that has been lived in our daily struggles.

For the hope that has lifted our hearts on the dark days and for the love that has kept us going.

We give thanks for the community that we are and we ask you Lord – Bless our students as they begin their summer break - May your Spirit inspire them with confidence and calmness.

Bless our families as we take our holidays, may our time together leave us with memories to cherish.

Pour out your love on us that we may return renewed and refreshed to continue our journey together .

We make this prayer through Christ our Lord.

Thank you for the opportunity to educate your children. They inspire me each and every day!

Yours in Christ, Michael Connell Principal

 




Introducing our 6th alumni spotlight for the summer!

1. Name:
​Colleen Hamill

2. Tell us a little about yourself now (occupation, family, pets, anything else of interest, etc)

​I am currently a senior at St. Joseph's college majoring in Secondary Education for History and will be student teaching and graduating this fall semester. While studying I work as a waitress and a one on one aid at the Little Flower School during the summer, a school for students with behavioral problems. I plan to get a dual master’s degree in special education and reading services. Both of my older sisters are graduates of Holy Angels as well. At St. Joseph's I am the secretary and founding member of the Kappa Delta Pi Education Honor Society. I also have an insane addiction to Target and interestingly enough can rap almost all of Hamilton.

3. Years you attended Holy Angels (please note your graduation year if you were a student through 8th grade)

​I graduated Holy Angels in 2011 and was a student since Kindergarten.

4. Favorite teacher while attending and why:

​Although I truly loved all of my teachers at Holy Angels, Mrs. Kearns was my favorite. No matter what she was always there. I remember in Kindergarten while waiting upstairs for one my old sisters to take me to the bus, she came up to me and introduced herself and spoke about what I would learn when she taught me years from then. Even though her lessons could be tough, she always made sure we worked to our best ability and did what she needed to do to help us succeed. She taught me that you could not learn without fun or without hard work, something I hope to teach my future students.

5. Favorite subject while attending and why:

​Given I am majoring in history, it is safe to say social studies was my favorite subject while at Holy Angels. I had some amazing history teachers such as Mr. Holtz and Mr. Gallagher who just really made history exciting and interesting to me. I changed colleges and majors to pursue history because of how much I love to learn about cultures, our past, and how today came to be.

6. How has attending a Catholic elementary school, Holy Angels, influenced your adult life?

​Attending Catholic elementary school has made me who I am. Academically it allowed me to develop key reading and writing skills that helped me flourish in school during and after it. I firmly believe if I had not attended Holy Angels my reading and writing skills would never have been as developed as they became. Not to mention growing up in a Catholic school made me into a much more compassionate and understanding person through the faith and teachings of morality my experience there taught me.

7. Favorite memory at Holy Angels:

​My favorite memory would have to be during recess, when all my friends and I would just walk around outside and talk. I look back now and realize how great that was. Today having all your friends at the same place at once and being able to just talk can take weeks of planning and endless group chats. All of my best memories involved just my friends and I outside walking around and talking.

8. Any other interesting stories to share from your time at Holy Angels:

​In the 2nd grade Mrs. Crabtree gave every student a spider plant that came from her plant. I am pretty sure mine is the only one to survive the winter of that year. I just find it interesting because well it has been nearly 15 years and that plant is still alive. I do not even remember why she gave it to us but I have more spider plants than I know what to do with now.

​9. Something to share about your faith- favorite part of attending church, favorite quote, favorite Bible story, etc:

​My favorite part of my faith is the Golden Rule, "do to others what you want them to do to you," Matthew 7:12. I believe that everyone should be treated fair and equally through compassion and understanding. One of the greatest lessons I learned at Holy Angels was that Golden Rule. We need to treat everyone with the same respect we would want in return. A little compassion can go a long way!

Thank you Colleen! We love how your years at Holy Angels has had such a positive influence on your life!
