Guardian Angels Extended Care Program
“I praise you, because I am wonderfully made; wonderful are your works!” Ps 139:14
Dear Parents & Guardians,
Thank you for entrusting your child to the Saint Ambrose Guardian Angels Program. The mission of the Saint Ambrose Guardian Angels Program is to provide a safe, fun and nurturing program that helps children to grow in mind, body, and spirit. This program is offered for Saint Ambrose Students only, from preschool-8th grade.
Good communication with you is key to making this program successful and beneficial to you and your child(ren). We would appreciate your thoughts and comments on any aspect of this program that you like or would like to see improved. Last year, we listened to you and added and changed things to make this program even stronger.
Working together, we can provide a safe, fun and nurturing environment that will enhance the educational, creative, emotional, social and physical development of each child within a Catholic environment.
Please don’t hesitate to contact me should the need arise. Thank you for participating in this program offered at Saint Ambrose School and I hope you and your child(ren) have an awesome school year!
