THE END AND THE BEGINNING
This is a great time of year. As educators, teachers and administrators know that we rarely see the fruits of our labor, but this time of year offers a small glimpse into what lies ahead for our students, especially for the Class of 2017. College acceptances come in by the hundreds, scholarships are announced, and choices are made. All these things also remind us that the school year is drawing to a close.
The end of the year also means that some wonderful events are about to happen. Please mark your calendars for the 37th Annual Bishop Kelley Auction on Saturday, April 22; the Honors Assembly on Thursday, May 11; the De La Salle Mass on Monday, May 15; and graduation on Saturday, May 20. Each of these events is an opportunity to celebrate the many accomplishments of our students and to thank God for all He's given us.
Yet, while the school year is ending, a new era for Bishop Kelley is about to begin. In the next few days we're going to share some exciting news about our new principal. He is a native Tulsan and an experienced educator, and starting July 1st, he will be joining the Bishop Kelley community as our newest administrator. Stay tuned for more details!
Finally, let’s remember that we are in the last week of the season of Lent. Easter is on the horizon which means we are about to enter the holiest days of the year. I pray that these days will be a time of growth in faith as we celebrate the death, and very soon, the resurrection of Jesus Christ.
