"Be convinced of what St. Paul says, that you plant and water the seed, but it is God through Jesus Christ who makes it grow, that he is the one who brings your work to fulfilment."
- St. John Baptist De la Salle - Meditation 196.1
Once again as I write this note, I hope and pray that all of you and your families, friends and loved ones are well and safe! Each time our school gathers in our weekly virtual assembly we lift each of you in prayer and ask God to watch over and bless each one of you.
Preparing for the end of any school year can be very challenging. There are many plans to put in place, celebrations to be had and final touches to complete the academic program before the close of the school year. Those plans are well under way as we begin to wind down and prepare for the end of our time in a virtual classroom and the start of summer vacation. This year brings new challenges and difficulties as we attempt to celebrate the academic accomplishments of all our students and to recognize the extraordinary success of the class of 2020, our 15th graduation class.
Since the start of our online schooling as a result of this pandemic, I have been most grateful for the many notes of care and concern as well as your outpouring of affection for the young men entrusted to our care. Your continued generosity and affection for our school and mission gives all of us the courage to forge forward. The young men who have graced and blessed our halls are the emerging face of America and represent a new generation of Lasallian leaders striving for a standard of academic excellence, morals and values that have been so much a part of our vision and history. The Lasallian legacy continues as the vision for our mission continues to grow and evolve because you have helped us plant and water the seed.
If you have recently contributed to our school and mission during this pandemic crisis, THANK YOU! If you have not had an opportunity to contribute, please consider doing so now. No gift is too small. We are always grateful for your support of our mission as we provide a quality Lasallian Catholic education to the young men whom God has asked us to care for. The seed has been planted.
