Days Ahead!  Mark your Calendar – No School!

On Monday, April 8, the Diocese Lumen Christi faculty will be attending Diocesan professional development.  Please mark your calendar –  No school Monday, April 8 — effectively giving you an extra day off for Spring break! 

In tradition, Bishop Boyea each year grants a day off to the students and staff.  This year, Bishop Earl Boyea has named Monday, April 22 as a day of no school for you to enjoy an extra day in celebration of Easter Sunday. Please mark your calendar – No school Monday, April 22.

Finally, just a reminder that our students and faculty will honor Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. with a day off of school this Monday, January 21.

From Mr. Havlicek: Seniors and Parents: Please send any Scholarships earned to Mr. H ASAP so they can be recorded and placed in the Graduation booklet at the end of the school year. We want to be able to celebrate the accomplishments of all who have been able to receive recognition, and please send ALL scholarships earned, not just the ones for the school you are attending next Fall.

From the Junior Class:  It won’t be long before it is Friday, May 3rd – the Junior/Senior Prom!  It is a night to make memories that will last a lifetime.  Many factors go into making it a night to remember, one of these is the “perfect dress”.  Before you go shopping we wanted to remind you of the Lumen Christi Catholic School Prom Dress Code.  (Please be aware that the dress code applies to all Lumen students and their guests—any students and/or guests that are not properly attired will not be allowed entry.)  Below is attached a flier that will help with your planning and shopping.
