Dear Holy Angels' Families,
Congratulations to our football teams who represented us well in the City Championship. Although both teams were defeated in the championship game, we are very proud of the players, coaches, cheerleaders, and all who made their season such a success.
We have a new logo! You can see it at the top of this newsletter. All unifroms and spirit wear with the old logo on it will still be allowed to be worn. We will start making new uniforms and spirit wear with the new logo.
Our 5th/6th graders are going into each of our classrooms and presenting facts about each candidate for president, governor, and US Senate. Ms. Tucker and her students have worked hard to reserach and practice their presentations. We will hold a mock election for the entire school on Tuesday. This is a great way for us to teach how important it is to have knowledge on what each candidate stands for on major issues before casting a vote.
Join us for our annual Chili Supper and Cardinal Ritter informational night on November 17th from 6:00-7:30. More details can be found in the full copy of The Guardian.

PEP RALLY AND HOLY ANGELS SPIRIT WEAR THIS FRIDAY to celebrate our football teams. It will be at 2:45. Our 3/4 team will play in the championship game this coming Saturday. Our 5/6 team won another game in the tourament and have their next game this Tuesday. If they win they will also be in the championship. Football players can wear their jersey with jeans/sweats and cheerleaders can wear their cheer outfits to school. All other students can wear Holy Angels spirit wear, burgandy or grey shirt with jeans/sweats. Good luck to all!
