Living the Lasallian Mission

"It is not fair to ask of others what
you are not willing to do yourself." Eleanor Roosevelt

Emblazoned around our campus is the very Lasallian idea of Enter to Learn, Leave to Serve.

This phrase is a direct outcome of the Lasallian Core Principle of Concern for the Poor and Social Justice.

 To kick off this school year the Science Department Faculty got together at Union Station in Pasadena to cook and serve dinner to  75 members of the homeless community of Pasadena.  This is part of a monthly service opportunity at our school where students, faculty, staff, clubs and teams provide this meal on the fourth Tuesday of every month.

I would like to thank the members of my department and their spouses and children who volunteered their time and energy in living the mission of our school community.  I would especially like to thank the faculty members of our Student Life Service Team who organize this tremendous opportunity for our school to give back to our community.
