Let us remember that we are in the holy presence of God.

O good St. Nicholas, you who are the joy of the children, put in my heart the spirit of childhood, which the gospel speaks, and teach me to seed happiness around me. You, whose feast prepares us for Christmas, open my faith to the mystery of God made man. Bring us all in reverence to the Holy Child of Bethlehem, when true joy and peace are found. Amen.

Saint John Baptist de La Salle…pray for us.

Live Jesus in our hearts…forever!

Winter Break is the perfect time for students to start planning their summer jobs and earn a Lifeguard Certification! Our Lifeguards starting wage is $11.25/hr and everyone will receive a pay increase on June 1st . In an effort to overcome the price barrier of the certification course we have a course reimbursement process as well as a scholarship opportunity.

Our lifeguard course scholarship reduces the cost to $5 for applicants exhibiting financial need. The attached scholarship application goes into more detail. Students interested in applying for the Lifeguard Scholarship can send their application to or mail them to MPRB Headquarters

Additionally, if a Lifeguard works an average of 32 hours per week with us over the course of the summer we will reimburse the cost of their certification class in their last paycheck of the summer. If interested or have any questions, please see Mr. C.J. Hallman.
