Presidents’ Day 2020

On January 29th, Holy Angels celebrated Presidents’ Day 2020. In June, our 8th graders were assigned a president to research and learn a speech they were famous for. Throughout the summer and fall, these students learned all they could about their president … who they were as people, where they came from, what they believed, what they hoped to accomplish for our country and what they actually did as a leader of our great nation. All their hard work culminated yesterday with their presidential presentations. The White House took over the auditorium where the student body and invited guests listened to speeches, watched skits, and even saw the 7th Grade Secret Service agents protecting our presidents! It was a sight to see! Afterwards, the presidents conversed with the Holy Angels voting public and the entire school voted on who they thought best embodied their president. Congratulations to Joseph Chelales, who portrayed Donald Trump, for a great performance. He beat out his classmates for Best Performance! We will add more photos as they become available.
