Dear Bishop Lynch Community,
As you may know, yesterday was Bishop Lynch High School’s Day of Caring in conjunction with North Texas Giving Tuesday Now. Current and former parents, alumni, faculty, staff, and friends of the Bishop Lynch community showed just how much they care by contributing $201,424 for immediate tuition assistance.
These emergency funds will be vital in helping current and incoming Friars continue their education at Bishop Lynch, especially in the current economic climate due to COVID-19. Thank you for your incredible generosity and support.
Class of 2020 Celebrations
We continue to celebrate the Class of 2020. This afternoon, the senior class and their families enjoyed a special cap and gown pickup parade outside Bishop Lynch High School. The drive-through celebration provided a fantastic on-campus send-off for our graduating seniors.
We will host a virtual Honors Convocation at 1 p.m. Friday, May 15 in place of the regularly scheduled in-person one. This ceremony gives us the chance to honor the academic, extracurricular and leadership achievements in the senior class. The GoToWebinar meeting instructions will be sent to seniors and their parents soon.
As the senior class is already aware, Bishop Lynch has rescheduled prom (for seniors and their guests) and graduation to July 24-25 at their original locations. It will be an epic celebratory weekend for the Class of 2020 given the shelter-in-place orders and social distancing guidelines have lifted by then.
Mobile Food Drive on Campus May 11-15
Bishop Lynch is partnering with Catholic Charities Dallas to host a mobile food drive on the BL campus all next week. From 1-5 p.m. May 11-15, BL families and friends of our community can drive through campus to donate nonperishable food items, diapers and baby wipes to benefit the North Texas Food Bank.
If you’d like to participate in the BL/Catholic Charities Dallas charitable effort, please put your donations in the trunk or back of your vehicle and pull up to the school’s circle drive by the flagpole. Simply stay in your vehicle, and members of the BL athletics department will unload your donation. Many thanks in advance for your philanthropic work to help our neighbors in need.
Finally, this week is Teacher Appreciation Week. Please join us in thanking our fabulous Bishop Lynch faculty. They are a faithful, caring and dedicated group of committed educators who truly shine both on campus and in this remote learning environment.
Sincerely yours in Christ,
Chad Riley, Ph.D.
