  • Back-to-School Reminders

    July 16, 2015

    Dear Parents/Guardians and Students,

    My first few weeks on campus have been a joyous introduction to the Carondelet community!

    Having participated in the school’s golf tournament and having visited campus for meetings over the last few months, actually being here every day makes me most eager to get the school year started. I know how that may sound to those enjoying time away from school, but the days here are awfully quiet. Missing is the day-to-day excitement, enthusiasm and joy of the students and faculty.

    Having been a part of that enthusiasm for 27 years at my former school, I can’t wait to discover how exceptional it must be at a school like Carondelet, especially as we celebrate the school's 50th anniversary. I hope you will join us for the various events and activities we have planned as part of this celebration.

    To ensure that everyone is prepared for the first day of school, we would like to share some timely reminders. While there is still nearly a month of vacation left, I hope these reminders and tips will be useful as you plan for the year ahead.

    Don't forget - our Freshman Family BBQ is on Sunday, Aug. 9 and school begins on Tuesday, Aug. 11. I hope you are enjoying a blessed, joyous summer, and I look forward to meeting you in the coming months.

    Sincerely,

    Kevin Cushing
    Principal
