Your family is invited to attend Sunday Mass in the MDSA Chapel and enjoy breakfast with fellow Mount de Sales families in the Music Hall and Cafeteria. There is no charge to attend. This event is a great way to welcome our incoming Sailors!
Fall/Spring Cleanup – Twice a year the Parents’ Club performs a cleanup of the Mount de Sales grounds. We do whatever is needed to spruce up the grounds before the Open House in the fall and Graduation in the spring. We mulch, trim trees and shrubbery, pick up trash, pull weeds, etc.

The escort can be the girl’s father, grandfather, uncle, brother, godfather, etc. Dinner is provided for the seniors and their escorts in the Music Hall; light refreshments are provided for all students during the dance in the gym. Don’t let your daughter tell you different - this is an event for students of ALL grades.
