UPLAND—At this period of time my school family is very excited. On October 31 of this year, Pope Francis declared Nano Nagle, the foundress of the Presentation Sisters, Venerable. My principal, Sister Mary Kelly, is a Presentation Sister. This event coincided with a project on Nano Nagle that my class was doing. We researched the life and work of Nano Nagle, prepared a handout for each grade, and we showed a video to the classes.

Jalpa and the surrounding pueblos are the lands of our ancestors where our families grew up and set roots. Though our roots are now in Redlands, we have left a part back in Mexico.

 My trip to Catalina was very inspiring. I learned many things. I got to really know people that I’ve been with ever since kindergarten. I was able to experience things I have never done before. Lastly, and more importantly, I learned and found new things in myself. 

 Where should I start? I have attended Sacred Heart Academy since kindergarten. I have always wanted to go to Catalina. Our eighth grade takes a five-day trip to Catalina at the beginning of every school year, so my wish finally came true!
