Happy Summer, Lancers!

God of Love,You are with us in every transition and change. As we enter into this new era with excitement and even some anxiety,
we recall your deep compassion, presence, and abounding love. We thank you for the gifts, talents and skills with which you have blessed us. We thank you for the experiences that have brought us to this moment. We thank you for the work of others that gives breadth and depth to our own work. Be with us as we move forward, rejoicing with you and supporting one another. We ask this in your Holy Name. Amen. Our Lady of Mt. Carmel, pray for us.

You do not need to request a final transcript. If there is a change in your plans, and you need a final transcript sent somewhere, please email tmccall@salpointe.org. More information inside the final College Newsletter for the Class of 2024 regarding lockers, diplomas and sending in testing scores.
