Dear Pilot Family,
Thank you to all the Moms who attended the Mother-Son Mass this past Wednesday, it was a beautiful celebration to honor our Moms and to recognize our Seniors in their last All School Event!
Monday begins our Senior Exams! Seniors will have 2 exams per day this week, culminating in Graduation Rehearsal on Friday, May 20!
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 the all-night party, and a Plan B if the weather does not cooperate and if we have to have the Mass and ceremony indoors. The Baccalaureate Mass and Graduation will begin at 4 pm on May 21, at the St. John Baptiste de La Salle Field. Fr. Brian Meldrum will be our Main Celebrant for the Baccalaureate Mass. Please pray for good weather! The Senior All Night Party takes place on May 22nd beginning at 10:30 pm and ending at 5 am on the 23rd!
As this is graduation season, we pray for all graduates! Please speak to your sons about staying safe during this time of so many graduation parties.
