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 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!
