La Reina appoints new head of school

Dr. Michael Bates

Dr. Michael Bates, assistant principal for student life at Louisville High School in Woodland Hills, has been appointed head of school at La Reina High School in Thousand Oaks, effective July 1.

“Dr. Bates is a man of great integrity, drive and faith,” said Dr. Christopher Tolcher, chairman of La Reina’s board of trustees. “He has experience working with faculty, students, parents, administrators and the local community in a leadership role, and in an environment that matches La Reina's very closely.”

Bates holds a Doctorate in Educational Leadership for Social Justice from Loyola Marymount University, a Master of Pastoral Studies from Loyola University Chicago, and a Bachelor of Arts in History with a minor in Philosophy from the Catholic University of America. He has served more than 20 years in Catholic secondary and higher education.

“What a wonderful opportunity this is to lead La Reina honoring the tremendous legacy of the Sisters of Notre Dame, the faculty and community of students, families and alumnae,” said Bates.

Opened in 1964, La Reina was recognized as a 2013 National Blue Ribbon School.

The greatest of all truths in the universe

Archbishop José H. Gomez

A huge crowd was gathered to hear him, 5,000 people at least have come to him. And now the day is almost over and they’re far from home with nothing to eat. Jesus knows they are hungry and he wants to feed them. We can feel how much he cares for them, he loves them. His heart is moved and he really wants to take care of them.
