Dear Parents, Students, and Friends of Kelly,
The season of Lent begins next Wednesday, March 6. In the Catholic tradition, Lent begins with Ash Wednesday and we are called to remember that we are created by God and will return to Him. Throughout lent, we are called to be reflective and meditative about how we are living our lives and to improve ourselves by “giving alms, performing acts of charity and by fasting”. May we each experience spiritual growth during Lent, so we can truly celebrate and recognize the great gift and miracle of the resurrection of our Lord and Savior at Easter.
Softball and Baseball are now underway. Check the school calendar for game times and come out to support the Bulldogs!
Wednesday, February 27, all juniors will attend the Junior Retreat at St. Jude Catholic Church in Beaumont. The students report directly to St. Jude Church by 8:30 AM. They will be dismissed at 2:45 PM.
Best wishes and Good Luck to Kelly’s Mock Trial team who will be traveling to Dallas to compete in the state level Mock Trial competition on February 28.
