Principal's Message

On Friday, November 17th, we conducted a toy drive to benefit children at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center. This opportunity originated from and was led by second grader Kennedy Lovett! I am very proud to announce that over 500 toys were donated from our school! Thank you for supporting this important cause! Thank you to Kennedy for earning her HALO by demonstrating strong leadership!

I wish all our GA families a very blessed holiday season! I look forward to the return of our angels on January 8, 2024!

God Bless,

Action Required: Re-enrollment for the 2024-2025 School Year

Thank you to the families who have finalized re-enrollment for the 2024-2025 school year by submitting your registration fees! Again, many classes will be at capacity next year, especially in the primary grades. All current families must finalize their registration fee payment to be included in our class rosters for next year. Current families must complete their fee payment ahead of this date to maintain priority. To complete registration, please use this link.

Cafeteria Volunteers Needed

We are in need of helpful hands to keep an eye on our students in grades K-8 during lunch for the second half of the school year! Please consider sharing a small part of your day to assist. All volunteers must be SafeParish trained. If you are interested, please sign up!

Great news for anyone who pays Ohio income tax and supports Guardian Angels

We have many students at Guardian Angels who benefit from scholarships provided by the Catholic Education Foundation (CEF). Ohio taxpayers who donate to the CEF may be able to claim a dollar-for-dollar, non-refundable tax credit on their state income tax return, up to $750 per donor. For more information, click here.

We hope you consider a donation before the end of the year and choose "Guardian Angels School (Cincinnati)(C00160)" from the drop-down when prompted.

Parishioner and tax expert, Brien Dulle, is donating. Here's what he had to say. "Supporting the CEF is a no-brainer for me for two reasons. As a graduate of GA that is also sending my daughters to the school, I want to invest in the education that our children receive. Secondly, there's no extra money out of pocket since I can claim a dollar-for-dollar Ohio tax credit."

Save the Date: Grandparent's Day

Save the Date: Father/Daughter Dance

Please save the date for the GA Father Daughter Dance on Saturday, January 20th
