Salpointe Weekly Peek - April 1, 2022

Happy Friday, Lancers!
This week’s prayer is from Jennifer Harris, Director of Advancement:
Lord our God,
in your wisdom and love
you surround us with the mysteries of the universe.
Send your Spirit upon these students
and fill them with your wisdom and blessings.
Grant that they may
devote themselves to their studies
and draw ever closer to you,
the source of all knowledge.
We ask this through Christ our Lord.
Our Lady of Mount Carmel. Pray for us.
Email Error
Students have mistakenly received a number of emails in the last week regarding the Moulin Rouge Gala and Salpointe Giving Day. We apologize for the confusion. These fundraising campaigns, which directly support Lancer students, are designed to be received by parents, alumni and community members only. Thank you for your understanding.
Graduation 2022
Seniors heard important information regarding Graduation 2022 during Homeroom this week. For your information and referral over the next weeks, we have established a Graduation 2022 link for families. You will find information related to events, dates, times, as well as reminders about academic and other deadlines. Seniors will continue to receive information through Homerooms. Parents are encouraged to use the link on the website for helpful information and reminders. Information will be updated frequently as we draw closer to May 14.
