This Monday, May 1 through Thursday, May 19, Hodgins Library will sponsor the 8th Annual Recycle & Read Event, and everyone is invited to participate. Our Library Committee have sorted so many books - infant through adult - now on display on tables at the library during Recycle and Read. Parents, students, faculty and staff can stop by and pick up books to take home, free of charge. See you there!

Being On Time to Morning Prayer

Morning Prayer is the most important part of our day. Please show up on time and proceed immediately to the prayer area as soon as you hear the bell.


But what should I do if I am dropped off after 8am?


All students (and parents): If you arrive after the 8:00am bell, please proceed DIRECTLY to Morning Prayer without stopping first at advisories/homerooms. Take your items with you to the prayer area.
