Vaping and chemical health education
The Food & Drug Administration reports that there is a new trend of ingesting vape fluid directly, without the use of a heating mechanism like the Juul. Seizures or convulsions are possible side effects of nicotine poisoning, and addiction is an ever-present reality. To combat vaping in our community, we are calling on you as parents to gather information and start conversations with your students. We are also reviewing our chemical health policy with a focus on adjusting our consequences for vaping or being in possession of a vaping device. If you have concerns about your student or questions about AHA's efforts in this regard, contact counselor Matt O'Leary. Read article "Teen Vaping: What AHA parents need to know."
May 10 is the deadline for Staff Service and Dedication Award nominations
You have one more chance to give us your nomination please! The deadline is tomorrow, Friday, May 10. It is a tradition for the AHA Parent Association to honor a non-teaching AHA staff member on behalf of the parent community during Celebration Day. So of course, we would like to collect nominations from parents! We are looking for a non-teaching staff member who encompasses living out the AHA Way in their daily role as staff members at Holy Angels. This non-teaching staff member may have helped you/your family, or you may have witnessed this person assisting others in the AHA community. Share with us positive experience(s) that left you feeling that AHA is a place where people are empowered to succeed. Please email Joan McCrory, PA Chair, with your nomination that highlights how this non-teaching staff member lives out the AHA Way. All nominations will be kept confidential. The deadline is Friday, May 10.
