News from Campus - General Announcements

Dear Comets,

Can you believe that it's the last week of school for the year? It's been a great school year so far - let's finish strong! If your child has to take exams next week, please make sure that he or she is preparing properly, starting today. Yesterday we celebrated our last Mass of the school year and our Underclassmen Awards Ceremony where we honored students for their many accomplishments! (At the beginning of next week, we will be sending out a separate email with pictures from this ceremony.) We have so much to be thankful for in each of the students that walk our halls every day! Thank you for being a part of the Comet Family. Also, congratulations to the Class of 2019! Once a Comet, always a Comet!

Sincerely,
Mrs. Creppel
