Examples of the photographs were soon posted and students gathered to marvel at how professional they looked as they held hope that they might soon appear in a professional catalog.

  • The Age of Robots (Read more)

    How does a teacher keep students engaged as the days wind down in the school year? For students in the Intro to Computer Programming class, that means getting a taste of Raspberry Pi, a low-cost computer. The device can be used to create home media centers, gaming systems, and to operate robots using two popular programming languages–Scratch and Python.

    This year we celebrate the Tercentenary (1719 – 2019) of the death of St. John Baptist de La Salle. During each month we will recall a legacy in the history of the Christian Brothers. This month we pray with Brother Benilde Romancon in mind. When Pope Pius XII beatified Brother Benildus Romancon in 1948 he stated that Brother Benildus was known for “doing common things in an uncommon way”. Lord, guide me so that like Saint Benildus, I may do things in uncommon ways.
