Allow me to serve others with a joyful heart;
Never keeping score;
Always giving;
Never expecting to receive.

Saint John Baptist de La Salle – Pray for us!

Live Jesus in our Hearts – Forever

We wrap up Diversity Week tomorrow with our all-school Multicultural Celebration program during WIN. Ninth and tenth grade students will attend the program during the 1st WIN session and 11th and 12th grade students will attend during the 2nd WIN session. When you are not at the multicultural celebration, you can sign up during the other WIN session to meet with teachers or participate in quiet study.

Chicago is a dazzling and satirical look at fame, justice, and the media machine. Set in 1920s and based on real-life events, Chicago follows Roxie Hart, a wannabe vaudevillian star who murders her lover and is arrested, despite her attempts to convince her pushover husband, Amos, to lie for her. In the Cook County Jail, Roxie meets her hero, the famed double-murderess and nightclub performer Velma Kelly. When both acquire the same lawyer, the greedy superstar, Billy Flynn, tensions come to a head as they vie for the spotlight.
