What a final week! The 2012-2013 school year ended with a bang!
Leading into graduation, Louverture Cleary Varsity Boys Soccer beat Saint Louis de Gonzague (SLG) 2-0 in a friendship match. This was a first for LCS. Last year, LCS finished second to SLG in SLG's city-wide tournament. A healthy rivalry has been established.
On Friday, work began on the Providence College Mural that now adorns the wall financed and partially poured by PC students who made a trip to Haiti this May. The PC and THP connection is growing and fruitful! We are proud to be a Friar supporter.
This year's graduation was the largest ever – yet it was also the most organized.
Haiti Director of Operations Esther Paul and LCS Dean of Academics Marjorie Mombrun are simply amazing. Esther, Marjorie, and the cooks put on a wonderful day for over 450 people!
It has been a great year. We appreciate your support in making it possible. I look forward to resuming our weekly updates on August 21st – one day after Christina and I will celebrate our 25th Wedding Anniversary!
