Dear Families,

As we prepare to celebrate the month of Mary, here is the Memorare prayer. It is a prayer seeking the intercession and help of the Blessed Virgin Mary.

Remember, O most gracious Virgin Mary, that never was it known that anyone who fled to your protection, implored your help, or sought your intercession, was left unaided. Inspired by this confidence, I fly unto you, O Virgin of virgins, my Mother. To you do I come, before you I stand, sinful and sorrowful. O Mother of the Word Incarnate, despise not my petitions, but in your mercy, hear and answer me. Amen.

Flowers for Mary

Next week, we invite families to bring flowers for our Mother Mary in front of the school office. We ask that you please REFRAIN FROM BRINGING LILIES due to allergies.

Last names starting with:

Mon. May 6th: A – F

Mon. May 13th: G – L

Mon. May 21st: M – R

Summer Uniform Starts on May 15th

Summer Uniforms are optional pieces. Students are allowed to wear these pieces from May 15th to the end of the school year, and then in the fall from September to October 15th. We are able to make concessions when the weather is unusually warm.
