Greetings and Happy Spring!
The winter-like weather in April and May sent our athletic events schedule into a tailspin. Games and meets were rescheduled which is making for an exciting a busy end of the year. Our music department had to reschedule several concerts and events this year, but their final concert of the year on May 19th was snow free. Yippee!
We recently had our State of the School address where we were able to share great news and introduce Fr. Schneider and Sam Cotton as the incoming President and High School Principal, respectively. The PowerPoint presented that evening outlined our strategic planning, accreditation process and plans for keeping Loyola a viable Catholic school. The PowerPoint is posted the Loyola website.
On May 4th we celebrated 40 years of MACS Nite with a wonderful evening of music, food, auctions, games and talk. It was so wonderful to see all the alumni and alumni parents reconnecting. The event was a great success with over $120,000 raised. Almost 900 Lucky 20 tickets were sold. The winners of the Lucky 20 grand prize of $20,000 were Jim and Sue Brozik. Sue is a member of the Loyola class of 1953. They have bought tickets over the years including multiple tickets this year. 17 other people won the smaller prizes of $200 each. Congratulations to all and thank you to all the volunteers and attendees who made the night special.
Wishing you blessings this Spring.
