The Donut Fairy
We are winding down the school year with a special surprise - tomorrow is National Donut Day and the Donut Fairy will be visiting our students. We will have yummy donuts from Heavenly Donuts (and some allergy friendly donuts for the students that need them) to start a new tradition at St. Therese. Mrs. Green made me a fun Donut Fairy crown and the donut cart is tricked out with fun streamers and a sound system to announce my arrival.
Your can and bottle donations made this visit from the Donut Fairy possible - thank you!
In a year when so much has been difficult, when we are exhausted, we need to take these last opportunities to have FUN and make memories that send our kiddos into summer with a smile on their faces.
Look on Facebook and Instagram for pictures of the Donut Fairy's tour through campus. I encourage you to enjoy a yummy donut with a friend - find a reason to smile and celebrate the day!.
God bless you all,

Summer Athletic Camps at Jesuit
Summer Camps at La Salle
Summer is almost here! Are you looking for a fun summer camp to meet new friends? Do you want to come play with friends for a full or a half day camp? La Salle Prep is offering morning and afternoon youth camps this summer for students entering grades 1-8. Choose a half day option (most camps run 9-noon or 1-4) or stay the entire day – register for your favorite activity and spend the week on La Salle’s 34 acre campus. Check out our Falcon youth camps during the weeks of July 5-9 and July 12-16 and two more athletic camps in August.
La Salle summer camps are organized into three different age groups: Lil' Falcons (grades 1-3), Flyin' Falcons (grades 4-6), and Fightin' Falcons (grades 6-8). Incoming 6th graders may choose whichever camp group they would prefer. Camps include Dance, Soccer, Basketball, Volleyball, Tennis, and Art & Design. If students register for both a morning camp and afternoon camp they are welcome to stay on campus for a supervised lunch. Campers must bring their own lunches.
All the best,
Director of Admissions | 503.353.1413
