Girl Scouting – Daisy, Brownie, Girl Scout and Jr.

 

Raise your hand. Accept the challenge. Find your fearless. 

Holy Family School offers the Girl Scouting Program from grades 1 – 8; Daisy’s, Brownies, Jr. Girl Scouts and Girl Scouts.

If your daughter is interested in the Girl Scouting program, please contact Bridgette Klaus at bklaus.avt@gmail.com 

As a Girl Scout, you’ll always be trying new things, and learning there are hundreds of small, powerful ways you can take the lead every single day. You could build a robot, create your own work of art, or climb a wall in the great outdoors. Every time you try something new, you’ll discover you can do more than you ever thought possible. Plus, you’ll have a ton of fun every step of the way. With Girl Scouts, there’s a whole world of new opportunities and you-can-do-anything confidence waiting just for you!

Along the way, she’ll gain important skills in four areas that form the foundation of the Girl Scout Leadership Experience:

  • Science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM)
  • Outdoors
  • Life Skills
  • Entrepreneurship

While she may be exposed to these subjects at school, in other youth programs, or even on her own, at Girl Scouts she’ll experience them in a unique way that puts her on a path to a lifetime of leadership, adventure, and success. And because our program is girl-led, girls decide what they’ll do, together.

Counseling Program

 

 

The elementary years are a time when students begin to develop their academic self-concept and feelings of competence and confidence as learners. They are beginning to develop decision-making, communication and life skills, as well as character values. It is also a time when students develop and acquire attitudes toward school, self, peers, social groups and family.

Our HFS Counselor's Corner offers further information on our program as well as Articles and Information for parents. Please click here to Learn More.

The Holy Family School’s Spirituality program provides students with an opportunity to reflect upon and enrich their own spiritual growth, and to be active in their faith through a partnership with a Christian service organization. Each month, students in grades K-5 receive a Spirituality lesson that is based on 2 “Virtues of the Month,” and includes a hands-on activity designed to provide support to that month’s Christian service organization. Additionally, a representative from each partner organization will speak about their organization’s goals, services, and clients to the students during Assembly. The following month, students will hear about the impact of their contribution. We hope to empower the students by educating them about local and global issues and providing opportunities for them to practice their faith, engage with their community, and see how their actions can make a difference.prayer jars

In addition to the monthly lessons, each class has an annual Mass and retreat with their parents. The retreat provides more time for reflection and gives parents and students an opportunity to discuss their faith formation as a family and share with peers.

Lessons are led by trained parent volunteers and include age-appropriate activities such as small and large discussion groups, stories, prayers, games, and crafts. Thoughtfully and carefully aligned with the Virtue of the Month Program, our Christian Service program invites the children and their families to connect faith with life and reach out to those in need.

The Christian Service projects vary from serving the immediate community – from teachers and parents – to serving parish ministries such as the Giving Bank, Mission Haiti, and Pastoral Care Ministry to the Elderly. Additional projects have included serving community and national organizations such as Pasadena’s Ronald McDonald House, Children’s Hospital Los Angeles, Pasadena Humane Society, Make a Wish Foundation, Charity Water, Meals on Wheels and The Jane Goodall Foundation. 

Our 2nd and 5th-grade classes sent much needed spiritual support to a school in Houston Texas following Hurricane Harvey. The 4th grade held a year-long fundraiser for a nursing home in Puerto Rico that sustained terrible damage by Hurricane’s Maria & Irma. The children are not only taught what these important ministries and organizations do for others, but they are also inspired to give hope to others through service.

Virtues for 2019 – 2020 School Year:

  • September – Cooperation and Respect
  • October – Compassion and Empathy
  • November – Service and Giving Thanks
  • December – Generosity and Kindness
  • January – Responsibility and Self-Discipline
  • February – Forgiveness and Love
  • March – Humility and Modesty
  • April – Optimism and Faith
  • May – Honesty and Integrity

Scouting

Many Holy Family School students get involved in scouting in the 1st grade and some continue through high school. While Cub Scouts and Boy Scouts are parish-based welcoming those from other schools in the area, the Girl Scout Program is school-based with each grade organizing their own troop. Scouting offers boys and girls the opportunity to become self-reliant and dependable individuals who care about themselves and the world around them.

Drama

The Holy Family Drama Program

The theater is about fellowship, fun, dance and song — and wild and wonderful characters in magical stories! For over a decade, Holy Family Drama has brought together all of these elements with each play and musical production we stage.

Our goals are to foster and nurture the development of the whole child, and to enhance the learning experience of all the students involved. We also strive to provide a meaningful experience for the students and families who help produce and organize the production — including our student technical crew — as well as those who watch from the audience.

The drama program at Holy Family School has doubled in size over the last 10 years, and it continues to grow and develop the creative minds of the actors, crew members and audience. Each production gives our students opportunities to discover new talents, hone their performing skills, and build confidence. Each year in the fall our 4th and 5th graders take the stage to create the magical world of 16th Century England, or Charlie Brown, or New York City in 1897 where a little 8-year-old girl named Virginia asks the editor of the Sun Times’ “Is there a Santa Claus?”

The Spring is dedicated to a full-length musical with the 6th – 8th grade inhabiting fantastic characters. Most recently, they brought the adventures of P.L. Travers to life – Mary Poppins! The creative journey of our students always produces those “ah-ha” moments. Students in our Drama program learn to work as a team, improve their confidence, and truly get to experience their creative side.  These are qualities they take with them when they graduate.
