Hello Shamrock Families,
One of the highly awaited traditions in our school is the Father Daughter Banquet. Every year this event is cherished by the Shamrock community because it is a time to strengthen the bond with our daughters. The theme for 2016 is "Be the Light". To guide our daughters and explain what this means to women of success, we are honored to have Eileen Collins as this year's keynote speaker. Also, as in years past, we will have a mass at the beginning of the event followed by dinner, entertainment, and our customary Silent Auction. All of the proceeds from the banquet are used for beautification and physical improvements at our school.
This year's event will be held at the Omni San Antonio Hotel at the Colonnade on November 20, 2016 from 2:00 pm to 5:00 pm. Registration will open at 1:30 pm. The committee has been working hard to make this event a very special one for all attending.
