It was a true honor for our students to meet Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor. A few members of our student Congress and student Supreme Court were able to attend a talk with Justice Sotomayor, hosted by @vromansbookstore, in celebration of the release of her children’s book ‘Turning Pages.’ As the first Puerto Rican and third woman to sit on the highest court in the land, she is truly a trailblazer! She shared stories of her grandmother and mother, of her time at Yale Law School and of her Puerto Rican roots. It was truly moving and inspiring for our students. She then walked down the aisle to snap photos with any children and young people in the room. She saw our Alverno girls and not only asked what school we were from but asked about the array of pins on their blazers! We then snapped this photo. It was a once in a lifetime moment. #alvernoheightsacademy
As this school year comes to a close we will be counting down some of our favorite moments! Here is #10...The Los Angeles Archdiocese Christian Service Awards! Every year the Archdiocese honors one student from each high school. This year, senior Precious Perlas was awarded for her hundreds of hours of community service and her dedication to Alverno. Precious is a stand out student who plays on the basketball team and is a member of our ASU. She definitely has amazing Alverno spirit and brings such a light to our campus. This year we also honored Campus Minister and Theology teacher Katharine Guerrero! Only 8 teachers are recognized for their achievements and this year we were proud to have Ms. Guerrero recognized for all she does for our students!! #alvernoheightsacademy

What an amazing Mary’s Day! Yesterday our entire student body came together to celebrate Mary and our Alverno family. The day began with a beautiful mass led by Ms. Guerrero and Campus Ministry where our Mary’s Day court crowned Mary. We then jumped right into games, dances and skits! Here is a quick glimpse into the day. The day ended with the Seniors being named Mary’s Day champions and yearbooks being passed out. The rain couldn’t keep us down. Check out our instagram for more of our day. And of course...more videos and photos to come!! #alvernoheightsacademy #marysday
It is Mary’s Day week! If you know Alverno you know this week is one of our favorites of the year. Moments of dancing, banner making, rehearsing skits and so much more. Mary’s Day begins with a beautiful mass where our Mary’s Day Queen crowns Mary. Here is our Mary’s Day court: Caroline, Precious, Queen Elisia, Kate and Rita. Together they were selected by the faculty and staff because they are women of character who represent the kindness, dedication and love of Mary. This photo was snapped right after our Living Stations of the Cross where Elisia played Jesus and Kate played Mary! Congrats girls! Alverno Community feel free to join us for Mary’s Day mass on Thursday morning! #alvernoheightsacademy #marysday

As summer approaches, we are reminded of the amazing programs and internships our students took part in last year. Precious Perlas, a current senior, attended the 'Girls Who Code' program last summer at Loyola Marymount University. It is amazing to see girls advancing in coding! Way to go Precious!
As we enter our last month of the year, let's look back on some great moments! #schoolyearthrowback Last month our Performing Arts students, led by our amazing Director Cynthia Cales, took part in the Fullerton College Theatre Arts Department High School Theatre Festival! The students have participated in this event for years, performing pieces from our plays and musicals as well as solo pieces! This year, senior Julia Vallen won 1st place in the Classical Dramatic Monologue Category! She competed against over 100 fellow student actors and took home the highest award. She performed Joan of Arc's monologue from Saint Joan by George Bernard Shaw. Next year she will take her acting chops and Alverno spirit to Loyola University Chicago! Sophomore Claire Cook also made it to the finals for her Comedic Monologue! Well done Jaguars!
Last week was our first Spirit Dress Up Day as we lead up to Mary’s Day in just a few weeks! Students took part in Twin/Group day! Many students went big and showed off their creativity!
