 The Virgin Mary can easily be defined as the most appropriate role model for women. As a motherly figure, Mary exemplifies strength of godliness, strength, and maternal instinct. Mary portrays traits of holiness, piety, and humbleness. As a teacher, Mary instructs women on the importance of trust and perseverance.  She is the mother of all mothers. She possessed character traits that other women should strive to meet.  The modern woman should look at Mary and not only admire her, but learn from her.  http://www.catholicplanet.com/articles/article90.htm

Guidelines for Appropriate Dress for Graduation:
1)  White dress with NO PRINT, however faint, must be worn under your gown.

4)  Shoes should be white and should be comfortable enough to walk in them (keep in mind you have to go up and down stairs.)

Importance of Your Last Few Weeks as a Senior:
I know it is difficult to keep your head in the game during these last few weeks, just know that the grades you make now can change the final outcome.  Please continue to take all of your classes seriously.  It would sadden us to not have each one of you present at graduation, but we will not make exceptions for students who fail.  Also, college scholarship offers are contingent upon a student’s final grades.  So, keep up with your studies, and do your best as your high school careers draw to a close.  

God Bless to You ALL, Principal Darnell Cuevas
