Even though Alverno Heights Academy was closed yesterday, its faculty and staff are on campus busily preparing for next semester before they get to enjoy the Faculty & Staff Christmas Party. Foothill Credit Union also dropped by the in-service to present classroom grants to two of Alverno’s deserving teachers, Ms. Devan Douglass and Ms. Cynthia Cales.
Ms. Douglass, the American Sign Language teacher, plans to use her grant to purchase some De’VIA (deaf art) for her classroom. Ms. Cales, English and Theatre Department, is going to purchase The Complete Works of William Shakespeare for her classroom. Congratulations Ms. Douglass and Ms. Cales!! A special thank you to Foothill Credit Union for your generosity in providing these grants to these deserving teachers!
About Alverno Heights Academy
Alverno Heights Academy is an all-girls, independent, progressive Catholic, college preparatory school dedicated to its mission of empowering each young woman to be exactly the person she wants to be. Located on the property of the former Barlow Estate in Sierra Madre, California, Alverno Heights Academy was founded in 1960 by the Sisters of St. Francis who sought to create an environment in the San Gabriel Valley where young women could become informed and knowledgeable persons. Later renamed Alverno High School and sponsored by the Immaculate Heart Community, Alverno’s program—academic, spiritual, aesthetic, social, and physical—has been shaped by the staff, trustees, and students. As Alverno Heights Academy once again, the school remains committed to its mission by encouraging each of their young women to be who they imagine.
