It’s a blessing to have our Lasallian family reunited in person and not virtually. Returning to in-person learning also brings challenges. Some of the students had been virtual since March of 2020. This means they have not been in a physical classroom setting since grade five. My main goal is to get all seventh graders acclimated to a full class environment by fully participating in their classwork, inspiring each other, and having the confidence and faith in themselves, each other, and God to overcome the obstacles they had the last 2 1/3 school years. As those goals are met, the academic achievements and the utilization of the five goals of the school will come easier.
