In addition to all-school liturgies, students in each grade will gather as a class this fall to celebrate Mass. School chaplain, Fr. Joe Kuharski, the parochial vicar at St. Stephen’s in Anoka, will celebrate each Mass at nearby Our Lady of Lourdes. Ninth graders will be the first to have a class Mass, which is TODAY. Students should put their belongings in their lockers after 1st hour and report to the Florance Center. The other class Masses are September 13 for 10th grade; September 27 for 11th grade, and October 4 for 12th grade.

Students, you will meet with your academic mentor after 1st period tomorrow. Please bring homework and other class materials to work on quietly during the meeting. Mentor meetings provide you with a chance to check in with your mentor about how you are doing in your classes so far this year.
