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. Check our FB story to see the videos! 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.

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

Today we celebrated Mr. Merchant on his last day at Alverno! Good luck on your new adventure with your family in Washington. Your classroom has always been a place of thought provoking lessons, laughs and a place to discuss the latest technology or gaming device. You have made a difference in the lives of many students, faculty and staff. We will miss you and we cannot thank you enough for all the joy and lessons you have brought to our community! (...and the Star Wars' references, tech saves, printing, gaming company lunches, yearbooks, mic testing, somersaults, jokes, cool t-shirts, 3D printing and so so much more!) Best of luck Mr. Merchant. Come and visit us soon!
Congratulations to senior Beatriz Rivas who signed a letter of intent to play college soccer with Doane University! Today was her signing ceremony and the students joined in her excitement.

Good luck to Beatriz as you transform from playing as a Jaguar to a Tiger! #alvernosoccer #alvernoheightsacademy #alvernoathlete
