Salpointe Weekly Peek - May 3, 2024

Happy Friday, Lancers!

Jesus, my hope, As I continue to seek, May discouragement not get the better of me. When I feel let down and When am afraid to get my hopes up, Grant me faith enough to keep trying. Amen. Our Lady of Mt. Carmel, pray for us. 

General Announcements

Lancer Leaders
Juniors & Sophomores: Would you like to develop your leadership skills? Would you like to help other students? Can you commit to some training next semester and being a mentor for the next school year? Would you like to earn school service hours?

We are seeking to create a high school transition program that welcomes freshmen and makes them feel comfortable throughout the first year of their high school experience. Built on the belief that students can help students succeed, the Lancer Leaders program trains mentors from sophomore and junior classes to be Lancer Leaders. As positive role models, Lancer Leaders are mentors and student leaders who guide the freshmen to discover what it takes to be successful during the transition to high school and help facilitate freshman success.

Please complete this form before Friday, May 17th.
