Morning Announcements

Thursday, November 12, 2020

Please stand for our morning prayer.

We remember that we are in the presence of God. 

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

Dear God, help us to live according to your will today. Strengthen our ambitions and weaken our hesitations. We thank you for the blessings that you have given us. Help us to use our gifts in the way you truly intended. Steer us in the right direction and help us to remain steady on our course to eternal happiness with you. 

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.”

Thanksgiving Mass

Next Tuesday we will have a Thanksgiving Mass at OLG church and throughout the school. All students must wear their oxford shirt and tie.

Athletic Events

The 9th grade basketball game against George County has been cancelled.

Tonight the junior varsity and varsity basketball teams will play at home against Pearl River Central at 6:00 and 7:00 PM.

The junior high soccer teams will play Long Beach at 7:00 PM on the SSC field.

Feast of St. Stanislaus Week

We are continuing to collect non-perishable food items in our first period classes.  Please donate what you can and don’t forget that this is a competition for who contributes the most.  The contest ends next Tuesday.

Today we will play spike ball in Diboll Plaza at lunch.

Tomorrow Rock-A-Chaws will be hidden all over campus, both inside and outside. There will be a table with a box for each grade in the Resource Center, so when you find a Rock-a-Chaw, get it and put it in the box designated to your grade. This goes towards the winner of the spirit stick.

Book Store

The Saint Stanislaus Bookstore is now taking pre-orders for approved SSC outerwear jackets.  Stop by  the bookstore before or after school, or see Mr. Clark or Mr. Cobb to order yours today.

Activities Board

Students, please check the Activities Board for upcoming  activities and volunteer opportunities.

Lunch

The lunch for today is: beef enchilada pie with beef and bean burrito; or meatball sub with french fries.

Quote of the Day

The Quote of the Day today comes from American aviation pioneer and author, Amelia Earhart, who wrote, “A single act of kindness throws out roots in all directions, and the roots spring up and make new trees.” 

Teachers please take this time to check attendance in PowerSchool and do the dress and grooming check.
Thanks for your attention. Ametur Cor Jesu!
