Dear Priory Families,

Only one week until Xanadu! We hope you will be attending this exciting event next Saturday, Feb. 4. I look forward to seeing you there, dressed in your best Roarin’ Ravens outfits — we can cut a rug together at this lively wingding! We have a dizzying array of special silent and live auction items, sports memorabilia, and Chic Boutique treasures for you to bid on, and of course, the beloved Fund-A-Need, which this year, with your support, will help us purchase new athletic scoreboards across the campus. 

I would like to extend a very big thank you to our sponsors, advertisers, and volunteers — we couldn’t do this without you. Xanadu Chair Lori Willard has worked tirelessly alongside Assistant Director of Special Events, Faridah Burnett, to plan a night to remember.

This time of year is a busy one. Not only are we preparing for Xanadu, but our Enrollment Management team has been enthusiastically working with our candidates for admission for the 2023-2024 school year. Decisions will be mailed today for Form III admission, and Form I deadlines are fast approaching. A special shout out to Jennifer Nowak, Bobby McCormack and Julie Winkeler for all their hard work. We are also thankful to all the students who, while hosting a potential student during shadow visits, have shared their love for Priory, as well as for all of you current parents who so strongly support Priory.

We are happy to report that construction is moving along. It’s been exciting to see all the changes. We cannot express our gratitude enough to all of you who have donated so generously to help us make this renovation project a reality by supporting the Sharing the Promise Campaign. Saint Louis Priory School’s students have always been challenged and nurtured in mind, body, and spirit, and this renovation honors our students by providing modern, forward-thinking spaces for them to work and commune. Thank you so much.

Laus Tibi Domine
