It was a wonderful Back to School Night! Thank you to our Alverno Parents Association for hosting our parent social on the terrace! Parents then had the chance to visit with teachers in their classrooms. And...of course Jazzy the Jaguar visited with our guests. What a great night! #alvernoheights #myalverno #Alvernobacktoschool #jazzythejaguar

Dear Alverno Community, It is with great sadness as I write this letter to let you know that Ms. Phyllis Vandeventer passed away yesterday after a long battle with cancer. Ms. Vandeventer has been a dear colleague of ours since 1995. Her one and only mission was to be the best teacher she could be for our girls. She believed that all girls could do math. She was one of the most beloved teachers that we have ever had at Alverno. She cared so deeply for all of her students and always did her best to make sure they succeeded. Her students knew this to be true and loved her for it. We feel a very deep loss at Alverno today. Please keep her family in your prayers. Once we receive details about her services, we will share it with the community. God bless you all. With Sadness, Julia Fanara Head of School

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
