Whether your student graduated 30, 20, 10 years ago or just last year, we hope you have happy memories and great connections from your student’s time at Bishop Lynch High School. We’re pleased to begin a new initiative in bringing together BL Parents, beyond the high school years. Our goal is to provide past parents the opportunity to serve each other, our alumni children, and the school community. When you stay connected, you share your ongoing pride in our school, your gratitude for the education your student received and an appreciation for lasting friendships made throughout the years.

Next Shoreline cleanup is on Monday, September 11th - FTLOTL - White Rock Lake

We need your help!!  Come out and help us clean up our adopted shoreline at White Rock Lake.  This is for the entire BL Community so the more we have out there the more we make an impact!!  We will meet at our designated area from 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm and then afterwards we will head over to The Lake House for a few beverages - our treat!  To better explain the shoreline cleanup - our Alumni Association's Community Service Committee has adopted a small portion of White Rock Lake's shoreline. In this program, a group agrees to keep their adopted part litter-free.  Please consider helping out our Alumni Association by joining us! Bring a friend, bring your family, - what a great way to reconnect and also help the community and environment!! We hope to see you - meet at our designated area - see map on the left for the exact location on W. Lawther Dr., just south of Mockingbird.
