We wrap up Social Justice Awareness Week today. All week, we have focused on Catholic Social Teachings as they relate to the needs of the elderly.

We will gather after 1st hour for an all school assembly to hear Mahmoud El-Kati, an African American Elder, lecturer, writer and commentator. El-Kati has written articles, essays and reviews that deal with a variety of issues including the myth of “race,” Ebonics, gangs and Black youth, education, African Americans, and sports.

Please take a moment to read this essay “The Origin and Purpose of Black History Month” before today’s assembly.

We will be selling Dr. Kent Nerburn’s books through next Monday. If you wish to purchase a book, please see or e-mail Ms. Hodapp in Lasallian Ministry. 10th grade students will be required to purchase and read Neither Wolf Nor Dog over the summer so, now would be a good time to do so…the value of a book increases with the author’s signature.
