During the 2014-2015 school year our local families are hosting students from Haiti, China and New York City. Because these families are 
opening their homes to a young person from another country, they are helping give our international and diversity students an opportunity for an education, and to develop the compassion needed to make the world a better place for the next generation, and the communities they return to.These students have been engaged within the MSJ community, joining sports teams, tutoring fellow students, acting in the theater program, and giving back through local community service projects. MSJ is grateful to the contributory host families, because without them, these experiences would not be possible, and MSJ would miss the opportunity for rich cultural diversity.

MSJ is seeking supportive families to host students. Join our global community and help support the MSJ community! For the 2015-16 school year MSJ will need between 5-8 families to host International and Diversity students. A $600 a month stipend is provided (which pays any remaining tuition balance, before remittance to host). To find out how to host a student, contact Carrie Savage at (802)-775-0151 or csavage@msjvermont.org, or visit www.msjvermont.org  

MSJ has room for you!!  MSJ has opening in all four years (Freshmen, Sophomore, Junior, Senior) and welcomes you to call for a tour and meetings. Please call – 1-802-775-0151 for your tour today!! Click Here for more details!

Dear Parents of Mounties~

Dear Parents of Mounties~

John chapter 15 verses 12-15 states, “My command is this: Love each other as I have loved you. Greater love has no one than this, that he lay down his life for his friends. You are my friends if you do what I command. I no longer call you servants, because a servant does not know his Master’s business. Instead, I have called you friends, for everything I have learned from my Father I have made known to you.” This statement rings true as we all prepare to say “good bye” and “best wishes” to our 22 Seniors. The halls are quieter and the days seem a little “off” as we venture through the final days of school without our Seniors. As with every passing year, we know that the graduating class is off to another journey but we will still miss them and all that they brought to our school community.  

Please keep our French Teacher, Mrs. Denise Rainville, in your prayers. Mrs. Rainville suffered a heart attack over the Memorial Day Weekend. She is home and recovering. We will keep you updated on her progress. We miss you Mrs. Rainville!!!

Congratulations to our Mountie Baseball Players on their win over West Rutland, 17 to 7!!! Catch the Mounties tomorrow at Saint Peter’s Field at 4:30 as they play against Black River.

They will play Thursday against Woodstock at 3pm at Woodstock. They will be leaving at 1:30 pm tomorrow. Good Luck Girls!! The Track team had a banner day last Saturday at their meet hosted by Rutland High School!!! Kyle D. broke the school record in the 200 with a time of 23.85. Way to go Kyle!!! Izzy H. broke the MSJ javelin record, throwing 69’-8.00. We are incredibly proud of all of our athletes!!!

Students will be cleaning out their lockers on June 9th. We will be running a pep rally schedule. All lockers need to be completely empty. Also, all locks need to be placed on the lockers. Owners with lockers that have a missing lock or that has a lock that is broken will be billed for a replacement lock.

Prayer to St. Joseph

Holy Saint Joseph, 
Be mindful of me;
Watch over me;
In my discouragement and fatigue,
  grant me laughter and support;
In my weakness, grant me strength;
In all things, grant me a constant
  awareness of Jesus' presence in my
