Morning Announcements
Monday, April 29, 2019

Please stand for our morning prayer.

We remember that we are in the presence of God.

Let us pray together as a school community in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.

Loving God, I feel myself being renewed by your life. Help me this day to speak with boldness
and take refuge in you. Help me to trust that your Spirit is in the wind that touches me each day and remind me of the Easter joy that gives me new strength to serve you.

We ask all these things in Jesus’ name.

In the name of the Father, and the of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.

Saint Stanislaus, pray for us.

Will everyone please join me as we recite together the Pledge of Allegiance.

“I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America and to the republic for which it stands, one nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.”

Please remain standing until the dress and grooming check have been completed.

Athletic Results
The Rock-A-Chaw track and field team spent the Easter break working hard at two important playoff meets.

One week later the Rocks finished as South State Runners-Up, that’s second out of 24 teams. At that meet two more records fell. Brandon Bordelon broke the school record in long jump and William Weber broke the school record in pole vault. The Rocks advance 10 entries to Saturday’s State Championship Meet. Keep up the good work gentlemen.
