A Message from the Assistant Headmaster
Dear Families,
Though summer seems to have just begun, it is already July, and there is still plenty of life around the halls of school! The maintenance team is hard at work doing annual classroom cleaning, and Summer Series participants come and go for their various activities.
The first of our summer mailings went out at the end of last week and should be arriving in the mail soon! As we have for the past few years, the primary content of this mailing is all online. Visit the  Parents Page  of the school website to find a link to a PDF with all the necessary information. If you’d like a hard copy of the mailing, please contact the Main Office.
We have just passed some beautiful solemnities in the liturgical calendar – Corpus Christi, the Nativity of St. John the Baptist, the Sacred Heart of Jesus, and Sts. Peter and Paul were all in just the last week or so! I hope you and your family are able to use some of your time this summer to turn to our Lord in prayer in special ways that may not be a part of the school year routine: daily Mass, adoration, family rosary, and other devotions. In those prayers, please remember to pray for our school community: administration, faculty, staff, parents and students. May we be united together within the most Sacred Heart of Jesus.
Sincerely in Christ,
Karl Hendrickson
Assistant Headmaster
