Morning Announcements
Monday, November 11, 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.

Dear God,
We thank you and we praise you for the freedom we enjoy in our country and pray that our liberties will continue to be protected. Thank you for America’s heroes, who fought for our freedoms and who have faithfully served our country. We honor all veterans for their sacrifices, their courage, and their integrity. As we celebrate these freedoms today, we ask your blessing on those veterans who made the ultimate sacrifice while defending our country. Bless their families and comfort them with the thankful prayers of a grateful nation. We thank you for our veterans, past and present. Through the efforts of those individuals, help us continue to promote justice in all nations.

We ask all these things in Jesus’ name.

In the name of the Father, and 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
Congratulations to the St. Stanislaus Sailing Team for their 5th consecutive Mississippi State Championship win! The team won the State Championship at Gulfport Yacht Club this past weekend, simultaneously winning the Gulf Coast Fleet Racing Championships. Sailors competed in three different boats: an “FJ” or Flying Junior, a Vanguard Club 420, and a Laser. The format was a series of ten races in each of three divisions for a total of thirty races in two days. The competition was fierce, but SSC handily won the regatta overall and won two of the three divisions. Winning the Laser division, Michael Burns placed first in every race. Winning the FJ division, skipper Claire Housey, with crew Addy Altese, Ashley Hilton, and Alexandra Bujan placed first five times and second three times. Placing third in the 420 division were Joel Grumme, Joshua Grumme, William Diaz, Graham Kalom, Robert Cabell, and Lane Burroughs. This group of sailors consistently placed first, second, or third in six out of ten races. Also sailing for SSC were William Ascherl, Logan Boyanton, Ruston Breisacher, C.T. Ilgenfritz, and Jeremy Reddoch. Way to go Sailing Rocks!

World Kindness Day
World Kindness Day is an international holiday that was formed in 1998, to promote kindness throughout the world and is observed annually on November 13th. The purpose of World Kindness Day is to highlight good deeds in the community, focusing on the positive power and the common thread of kindness which binds us. This week to celebrate World Kindness Day, we will be on the lookout for acts of kindness here at Saint Stanislaus. Whether it is sitting next to someone new at lunch, or helping out a classmate, please take some time to go out of your way to do something kind for others throughout the week.
