Monday, May 7, 2018

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.

God of all strength, this morning we seek your presence to begin the day, so that from this prayer we may take with us a positive attitude which will last us through the setbacks and the success of this day’s life. PAUSE Give us courage to be patient, not to give up hope when hopes are long in coming true, to accept disappointment without bitterness, and delay without complaint. Hear this, our morning prayer, in the name of the Sacred Heart of Jesus and for the sake of those who need your presence most.

We ask all these things in Jesus’ name. Amen.
In the name of the Father, and the of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit.

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 Events
The tennis team will be at the Individual State Championship today in Oxford, MS.

Athletic Results
The track and field team battled forty-eight other teams on Friday at the State Championship Meet, beating forty-six to become State Runner-Up for the second consecutive year. It’s been a long, record breaking season for the Rocks. Brandon Bordelon won the 110 Meter Hurdles and became a State Champion. Taylor Necaise was also a State Champion for the 3rd straight year in pole vault. This year, however, he also set a new state meet record formerly held by fellow Rock-A-Chaw Robert Simpson. The Rocks put others on the podium, including William Weber in pole vault and Landry Lemoine in the two mile. Robin Spanks finished 3rd in the 200 meters and 7th in the 100 meters. Davis Scharp and Thomas Weber both scored points for the Rocks in their events, and the relays who have been so strong all year came through again. The 4×1 and 4×2 comprised of JD Rutherford, Delvin Henry, Brandon Bordelon and Robin Spanks scored clutch points – the 4×2 finished third earning bronze medals. Our record setting 4×8 team of Landry Lemoine, Michael Raymond, Madison Grindall, and Alex Koons battled hard and finished 7th for the Rocks. This year marks the third time under the current format that your Rocks have been State Runners-Up. Well done men!

The Lacrosse Rocks finished the season with two close losses vs highly ranked Brother Martin. The Rocks led at halftime but were unable to hold off a surge of goals in the fourth quarter. Thanks to all that came out to support the team this year.

Art Work
Juniors Brice Babb and Jack Winstead have artwork that has been accepted into the 2018 Make Your Mark High School Drawing Competition sponsored by the Department of Art and Design at the University of Southern Mississippi. The show will be exhibited in the Gallery of Art and Design on USM’s Hattiesburg campus June 4 through August 18.

Students are invited to see the recent ceramic work in the display case next to the art room.

Thanks for your attention. Ametur Cor Jesu!
