Dear Pilot Family,

Welcome back from a long Easter Break! I pray that the Break was restful and a blessed experience for you and your family! Believe it or not, only 5 weeks of school until the end of this school year. Our Seniors will graduate on May 21 with our Baccalaureate Mass at 4 pm on the St. John Baptiste de La Salle Field, and graduation to follow. 

Graduation rehearsal will be on May 20 at 12 noon. All seniors must be in attendance to receive their cap and gown. Dress code on grooming will be severely enforced, (haircuts, shaving) and Seniors will not receive their cap & gown if they are not in code. All Senior parents should have received an email informing them of prom, all-night party, and a Plan B if the weather does not cooperate and if we have to have the Mass and ceremony indoors.

Congratulations to the following young men who received their sacraments at St. Malachy’s on Holy Saturday: Devin Schollengberger, James Milkey, Vincent Ragona, Luca Ishaq, Jacob Hubbs, Brady Murphy, Shawn Boyd, Donny Hopp, Delos Rossell, John Tosch, James Raffin, Anthony Raffin, Maxwell Krug and Brady Lee.
