Next week, beginning on October 24th through the 28th, St. Angela Merici Parish School will be celebrating Red Ribbon Week. This is a week-long event that is dedicated to prevention awareness of alchohol, drugs, and other harmful substances. Our theme for this year’s Red Ribbon Week is YOLO, or You Only Live Once. To celebrate, each day has a different dress up theme!
Monday: Shade Out Drugs. Wear any red shirt with uniform bottoms and sunglasses.
Tuesday: Sock it to Drugs. Wear crazy socks with uniform.
Wednesday: Team Up Against Drugs. Wear a sports team jersey or t-shirt with uniform bottoms.
Thursday: Lay Off Drugs. Wear a Hawaiin shirt with uniform bottoms.
Friday: Stronger Than Drugs. Wear superhero t-shirts, capes, socks, accessories with jeans or uniform bottoms, no regular shorts.
On Tuesday, October 25th, ALL 7th and 8th Grade students and parents are invited to attend High School Information Day at St. Angela’s! We will be having presentations from 4 different high schools: Mater Dei High School, Rosary Academy, Cornelia Connelly School, and Servite High School. We ask that the boys attend both Mater Dei and Servite’s presentations, and the girls attend Rosary, Connelly, and Mater Dei’s presentations. Do not miss out- it
s time to start thinking about your child’s future!
The schedule is as follows:
- Mater Dei High School – 3:00-3:30PM
- Rosary Academy & Servite High School – 3:30-4:00 PM
- Cornelia Connelly School – 4:00-4:30 PM
On Monday, October 31st, our school will celebrating Halloween! We have a great day planned and we encourage parents to come be involved in the festivities or take pictures of your students in the parade! The schedule for the day is:
8:15 AM – Trunk or Treat
9:15-10:45 AM – Kickball Games
11:00 AM – Class Parties
12:00 PM – Early Dismissal *There will be no carline, so parents must pick their children up from their classrooms.
Just like any day, we do expect our students to dress appropriately. While Halloween costumes are permitted, we ask that your child refrains from wearing any scary or inappropriate costume. Additionally, no masks that cover the entire face, blood, weapons, or scary clown costumes are permitted. This is a very fun, happy, and friendly event for our students.
So, parents, how can you participate in the Halloween fun? Help out with Trunk or Treat, of course! We are looking for families to decorate their car trunks in the most fun way possible (nothing spooky, please). For some “Spooktacular” ideas, Google “Trunk or Treat” and browse through the images for some really creative ways to decorate your car! Approximately 300 students will trick or treat at your car as they parade in their Halloween best!
If you would like to sign up, please call or text Andrea Curley at (714) 931-3887 or Rozanna Elsenpeter at (714) 315-3032. Please arrive on the blacktop at 7:30-7:45 AM to set up and the parade will begin at 8:15 AM.
Another way parents can help is donating to the Trunk or Treat event! It would be a great help if anyone could donate items to be passed out during the parade. Items requested include but are not limited to: pretzels, pencils, candy, rice krispy treats, granola bars, spider rings, popcorn, stickers, erasers, fruit snacks, or anything else you can think of! A bag is located in the front office for you to drop off your items. Any amount is appreciated and you can choose to donate even if you are not participating in the car decorating.
