Dear Parents and Students:
Welcome to the 2018-2019 school year!
This year I will continue to work in conjunction with the grade level and specialty teachers, parents and Mrs Dyrek to  help cultivate the unique learning style that each of our students possess.
In addition I will be working with our International Students to transition them smoothly into our learning and faith filled community.
I am also very excited to return to the classroom as the 8th grade religion teacher.  Our 8th grade class is the final product of all we have to offer at Holy Angels and it is an honor to embark on the final  leg of their elementary /middle school spiritual journey.
I will also be the faculty advisor to our school leaders, the 2018-2019 Student Council.  This group of middle schoolers has chosen to be role models and leaders, whose goal is to enhance this school year.
Looking forward to an awesome year!
Mrs. Nixon
Education Specialist
Liaison: International Students

"Bullying" is a very serious issue. I really like this definition of a word that holds such an emotional impact.

Teachers Rank What They Want From Parents

1.  Make sure you child gets to school.  
Unless they are sick, everyday is an important learning day!
2. Collaborate with the teacher when academic or behavior issues arise.  
We are all on the same team!  There is nothing a teacher wants more than successful students. Problem is sometimes the definition of "successful" may vary.
3.Set high expectations!  
 No skill worth learning is mastered over night!  Celebrate effort, celebrate each step towards your child's goal but don't lower the expectation because they struggle.  Struggling is the most important part of the lesson.
