MORNING ANNOUNCEMENTS, MONDAY MAY 20, 2024

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.

Father, you created our minds and you are the source of all knowledge. During this week of final exams, enlighten our understanding. Free us from mental laziness and the tendency to take short cuts. As we study, give us a focused spirit, a quick understanding, the ability to remember what we study, and commitment to academic honesty, so that what we learn we may one day be able to apply to the coming of your Kingdom. Amen.

St. Stanislaus, pray for us. 

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

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. Teachers, please make sure cell phones are turned in. 

Final Exams

We begin tomorrow with your first exam. We are going to do this a little differently than we’ve done in the past. When the first bell rings tomorrow morning, you will report to second period.  And you will take that exam for an hour and a half. There will be a break after the exam. Following the break, you will go to first period and then the remainder of your classes after that. Classes last 30 minutes except the lunch periods are a little bit longer. Dismissal is at 2 PM and the buses will depart at 2 PM. Your teachers have the exam schedule for the remainder of the week with noon dismissal each day. If you have any questions, please ask your teachers or any administrator.
