THE MAY 17 PARENT PULSE
For Senior Parents – Baccalaureate Mass and Graduation – Tomorrow and Sunday
Congratulations to the senior parents and their sons! Just as a reminder, graduation events kick off this weekend with the Baccalaureate Mass tomorrow night, May 18 at 7:30 p.m. at St. John's Church on the campus of Creighton University. Because of space limitations, this Mass can accommodate only seniors and their parents. Seniors should sit with their parents and dress in Prep's formal dress code with a suit coat or jacket optional.
The graduation ceremony will be held in the Heider Center on Sunday, May 19 at 10 a.m. Seniors should arrive by 9:15 a.m. in formal dress code with cap and gown, and use the commons entrance. (For graduating students, a suit coat or jacket is not recommended because it gets bulky and warm under the graduation gown.) The Heider Center doors will open at 9 a.m., and carpooling is strongly encouraged as parking is limited.
Tickets were distributed with caps and gowns today. If your family will not use all allotted tickets, you may turn them in at the high school office or the Heider Center ticket window prior to the ceremony.

Host Family Needed for Two 10th Grade Boys for Fall 2019
ROKUS Education Link invites you to share your home, heart and traditions with two students who need host families for the 2019-2020 school year at Prep. They are Kevin Lee and Chris Kim.

Hosting an exchange student is a rewarding experience! Your children will gain a broader perspective of another’s culture while learning more about geography, diversity and communication. Your family members will also become citizen diplomats in creating positive impressions of America and Americans.
This unique program creates memories and friendships that can last forever. To learn more, please contact Mison Cowell at ROKUS Education Link at 402-301-5257 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
