Benvenuti to Mrs. Alhadef's Home Page for the 2017-18 school year.
I'm so glad you stopped by to check out our wonderful school. We are celebrating our 120th year of Catholic education in Redlands.
I'm the 4th grade aide, Campus Minister, teach 4th grade religion and art, and am the Italian Cultural Liaison. I also visit 7th grade weekly and show a video as a fun and engaging way to look our faith.
I graduated from California State University, San Bernardino in 1989 with a degree in Geography and minor in Anthropology. I have been at Sacred Heart Academy since 2000 and have also been the aide in 1st, 3rd and 5th. I also was the Extended Care Director for 10 years.
As Campus Minister I write the reflections for Five Minutes With Francis and a blurb for the weekly Parent Letter (this blurb is also posted under Keeping Up With Your Faith). These reflections can be found under Spiritual Life, and the parent letter is also under 'Parents' on the school's main web page. Please take a moment to look at them. Thank you.
In 4th we continue to learn some Italian, in particular we pray the La Benedizione del Vescovo (The Bishop's Blessing) daily in Italian. We are in charge of La Tavola di San Giuseppe (the Saint Joseph's Table) each March and the kids also write some words and phrases in Italian when we write letters. There also are some Italian signs around school, including the Italian sign I hold at morning car line, to keep Italian present in a fun way.

Buonagiornata, e che Dio te benedica con pace e gioia.
Madonna della Letter, prega per noi! San Giuseppe, prega per noi! San Tommaso d'Aquino, prega per noi!
