Speaking of new life, it is with great humility that I inform you that I have been hired as the Principal of the new Catholic high school opening in South Surrey in Sept. 2018. I will officially start my duties in Sept. 2017 as there is much to do in order to prepare for this exciting new part of my life. I want to thank you so very much for all of you kind words of support and your prayers. They have been so appreciated by both myself and my family.
As we move very quickly towards the conclusion of the 2016-17 school year, it is imperative that our students continue to complete their school year on a strong note. It is our belief that if they finish strong they will start strong in September. This is particularly applicable to students at risk (achieving less than 60 %) and what they can do now to ensure they successfully complete their courses. A letter was provided in the latest progress report addressing this issue. We don’t want any surprises at the conclusion of the school year. We are here to support you and your son or daughter in their efforts. Please don’t hesitate to contact your son or daughter’s subject teacher or the appropriate Vice-Principal.
I also want to cordially invite you to our special Mother’s Day mass and reception on Fri. May 12th @ 10:45 am in the Stan Jean Centre. Fr. Gary Franken, grad of 1980, will be here to celebrate this beautiful mass. Please make plans to stay afterwards and join us for a reception in the cafeteria. Your presence is very much appreciated by our staff and students.
Once again, I thank you for your prayerful support of the STMC community.
God bless you,
Mr. Michel DesLauriers
