Thanks to the support and encouragement I received at Alverno, I decided to step outside my comfort zone and pursue an advanced art class. Then, in sophomore year, I decided to become a part of the Hair and Makeup crew for the plays and musicals. Thanks to Alverno, I was able to discover my creative side.

This past Sunday our American Sign Language (ASL) students participated in the annual Blessing Mass, hosted by the Special Needs Ministry at St. Phillips the Apostle Church in Pasadena. Our amazing ASL students translated both the Gospel and Offertory song. The Blessing Mass focuses on our family and our community, celebrating the uniqueness and talents that each member brings into our lives. The Blessing Mass welcomes all and embraces each one as a child of God – without whom our family would be incomplete. We were honored to be a part of this beautiful mass.

Yesterday we honored the Softball and Track teams with a Blessing of the Jerseys ceremony. It has become a wonderful Alverno Athletics & Campus Ministey tradition to pray over our athletes and bless their jerseys as they take the field representing our school. We pray for a safe and competitive season for all our teams! Go Jaguars! #alvernoheightsacademy

Today we celebrate International Women's Day! We celebrate all of our Alverno students who are maturing into empowered young women who will change the future of our world. We look back and thank the women who came before us and forged a path, most especially the Sisters of St. Francis and the Immaculate Heart Sisters, who believed in educating girls! We celebrate the women on our campus who teach in our classrooms, lead by example and inspire our students! We celebrate our alumnae who are strong, confident and motivated women who work as lawyers, doctors, judges, artists, designers, coaches, mothers...and so much more! We celebrate the women of our staff who work hard to make Alverno the wonderful place that it is! We cannot forget our amazing parents who continually support their daughters in becoming Alverno women! Lastly, to all of the men in our community, thank you for working hard to encourage our students to become who they imagine - we are all in this together! Happy International Women's Day! May we continue to value and support one another! #internationalwomensday
