COMING UP THIS WEEK
Trimester 1 Grades are available online
Trimester 1 grades are now available online. Go to AHA's NetClassroom and log on with your ID and password.
If you've forgotten your ID or password, you can use the forgotten password page to have it emailed to the email address we have in your record. If this does not work for you or you have problems logging on or seeing grades, you can email firstname.lastname@example.org for assistance. Make sure to include your full name, your student's name and the email address you used on the forgotten password page.
It's a good idea to print, download or otherwise save a copy of the Trimester 1 grades if you'd like to do any comparisons to other marking term grades. Once mid-trimester 2 grades are posted, the trimester 1 grades are no longer available in NetClassroom.

"Advent has a twofold character: as a season to prepare for Christmas when Christ's first coming to us is remembered; as a season when that remembrance directs the mind and heart to await Christ's second coming at the end of time…a period for devout and joyful expectation." (General Norms for the Liturgical Year and the Calendar)
During this season of Advent we are called to take a look at how we live our lives in joyful expectation of the second coming. Here at Holy Angles we will offer several experiences to our faith community through prayer and action.
- Monday, Dec. 3rd All School Advent Liturgy 10:00 am
- Wednesday, Dec. 19th all of the Theology Classes will experience an Advent Prayer in the Chapel throughout the day.
And we keep holy this season through our Christmas Basket program which culminates in a prayer service on Dec. 20th.

Christmas Basket Kickoff was Thursday, November 29
AHA students and staff began their annual Christmas Basket projects on November 29 with a convocation kickoff. Since the 1940s, the AHA community has been providing presents for families in need. Each homeroom has adopted a family for the holidays. The families are identified to us by our longtime partner of 18 years, Family Solutions: Universal Multicultural Consultants, a 501C3 nonprofit organization working with families in transition and crisis. Students “divide and conquer” by working together with others in their homerooms to provide gifts and household goods for their family. The Student Government provides each family with a grocery store gift card to assist with the holiday meal planning. We will be serving more than 45 families this year from across the Twin Cities. All gifts will be due at AHA by the day of the Christmas Basket Prayer Service on Dec. 20th.
If a student's family feels that contributing would be a financial burden, they only need to let the homeroom teacher know, and money will be provided so that the student can participate. Such conversations are confidential. Questions? Contact Student Government Advisor, Gregg Sawyer at 612-798-2612 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
