Dear Parents, Students, and Friends of Kelly,
In many Christian denominations, the traditional greeting during Easter is, “Christ Is Risen, Alleluia, Alleluia!” During this Easter season, may we each come to recognize and know the Risen Christ more completely and fully in our lives. The last few weeks of school are extremely busy with many events. I hope you will join us for many of them.
Our next All-School Mass is Wednesday, April 24 at 9:30 am in the Centennial Complex. Please join us as we celebrate the resurrection!
Friday, April 26: Kelly Dance Force Spring Show, 6:30 pm at the Jefferson Theater in downtown Beaumont.
Saturday, April 27:Jr. /Sr. Prom, 8:00 pm at the Art Museum of Southeast Texas. Please dress appropriately.
Monday, April 29: Kelly High School Blood Drive in the IC all day. Students 17 yrs. and older may donate, as well as all parents. Give the Gift of Life!
Tuesday, April 30: Awards day. The Awards breakfast will be held at 7:30 am in the Centennial Complex to recognize class award winners. The Scholarship and Awards Program will be held at 6:00 pm in the Centennial Complex followed by light refreshments. Recipients for both events were sent invitations last week – gold for the awards breakfast, and blue for the Scholarship Program. We look forward to seeing you there.
Seniors will be on retreat Wednesday, May 1 at St. Jude Thaddaeus Church from 9:00 am to 2:30 pm. Before the retreat, we have asked seniors to return to their previous schools (Catholic feeder schools and All Saints Episcopal School) at 8:00 am for a short ’Honor Walk’ in their caps and gowns. Unfortunately, St. Anne Catholic School has a conflict that day, so those seniors will make their walk on Thursday, May 16.
The Choir will hold its spring concert on Thursday, May 2, at 6:30 pm in the Centennial Complex. The Band concert will be Monday, May 7, also at 6:30 pm.
Senior Exams will take place during regular class time Monday – Thursday, May 13-16.
Graduation practice: Friday, May 17 at 10:00 am in the Centennial Complex.
Baccalaureate Mass: Friday evening, May 17, 7:00 pm at St. Anthony Cathedral Basilica.
Commencement ceremonies: Saturday, May 18 at 4:00 pm at the Beaumont Civic Center.
Final Exams for 9th -11th graders: Tuesday – Friday, May 21-24. There will be a special exam schedule created and announced in the near future.
Have a very blessed and holy Easter Season.
