Happy Summer! I hope your summer is off to a great start and your family has some time for rest, relaxation, and reflection. The 2017-2018 school year ended in grand fashion as the class of 2018 graduated on May 12. This particular class is one of the most accomplished classes to walk the halls of CBHS! They earned over $27.5 million in college scholarships and gained admission to 149 colleges and universities in 33 states.
While I am proud of their accomplishments, I noticed their attitudes toward one another as the school year came to a close. As a class, they were very kind, respectful, and mindful of each other as they parted ways on May 12. It was clear to me that the work of our teachers, coaches, counselors and you, the parents, was time well invested in these young men. The graduates embody the mission of St. John Baptist De La Salle as brothers to one another. The class of 2018 set an example of both academic scholarship and humility. While their earthly success is significant, we had the privilege of watching them grow into humble and dutiful men. Men for Tomorrow and Brothers for Life.
