Salpointe Weekly Peek - January 26, 2024

Happy Friday, Lancers!

Lord Jesus, Help me to be a better disciple: To forgive more easily, To pray more gratefully, To help more spontaneously, To live my faith more openly, And to love more fully. Amen. Our Lady of Mt. Carmel, pray for us.

To be recognized as a Salpointe Scholar, a Lancer must achieve a cumulative weighted GPA of 4.000 or higher by the end of the seventh semester. This is no small feat, and it speaks volumes about the hard work, determination, and intellectual capacity of these outstanding seniors.
