Congratulations and Thank You Seniors
Last Wednesday the 2021 girls lacrosse seniors were honored at the beginning of their last home game vs. FCA. Congratulations and thank you to Madison Hieber, Kaylee Hoerl, Alexis Jones, and Kelsey King for their tremendous hard work and dedication to the Concordia Prep Girls' Lacrosse program.
Yesterday before the last home game against Chapelgate, we celebrated our boys lacrosse seniors: Jaden Algarin, Gabe Barthel, Amir Richardson, Michael Reynolds, and Milan Temple. We also celebrated two soccer seniors: Gabe Barthel and Anthony Mendez. Coach Neto and Coach Berger joined the families for this photo.

The Varsity Baseball and Varsity Softball seniors will be honored tomorrow afternoon. Varsity Baseball plays Beth Tflioh at 3:30 pm and Varsity Softball plays Oldfields at 4:00 pm.

The Varsity Baseball team had a big win last Monday against the Key School 11-1 and were featured in the Capital Gazette.
Former Baltimore Orioles player Scott McGregor addressed the upper school on Monday afternoon on the invitation of the FCA to discuss his faith and to pray with CPS students.
Water Testing
As required by law, Concordia Prep regularly has the school's water system tested. The state has required that we share this information on lead in the drinking water. The inspection did reveal elevated lead in two sources, however, both of these water sources have not been used for drinking water for more than one year. Both sources have been removed and are being replaced. The fountains used for drinking water passed inspection.

Please read the attached notice and if you have any questions contact the school, 410-825-2323.

From the Guidance Office
High school students are excited by the prospect of college – maybe a little nervous, too. How will college be different from Concordia Prep? Join this meeting next Monday, May 10 from 6:30 - 7:30 pm.

I have an antidote for the jitters:Join a current Goucher Student Counseling Center therapist to discuss the psychological experience in the transition to college, mental health resources, and being proactive in managing health and wellness as a first-year student. Q&A session to follow!

From the School Nurse
Two Things Please: Parents remember to check your child each before they come to school and complete the Parent Locker App screening questions so your child can be admitted to school with their green cleared screen.

Remind your child to come to the nurse first if they are not feeling well during the school day and then the nurse and/or they can contact you to let you know their status once the nurse has evaluated them.
