Morning Announcements
Thursday, August 30, 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

Lord, I come this morning to ask you to shape my attitudes into positive ones. Give me peace, so that nothing may worry or upset me. Give me courage to accept disappointment without bitterness and delay without complaint. Give me joy so that I can spread good will and encouragement to my friends and peers. Hear this, my morning prayer in the name of the Sacred Heart of Jesus and for the sake of the world which he loved to the point of death.

We ask all these things in Jesus’ name. Amen

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.


Today during 2nd period we will have our first fire drill of the school year. Please listen closely to these instructions so that you will know what is expected of you during the drill.

When the alarm sounds you need to immediately stop what you are doing and listen to your teacher’s instructions. When given the go ahead from your teacher you are to file out of the room quickly and in complete silence.

When exiting the building be sure to file down the right side of the stairwell; leaving the left side available for emergency personnel.

Once outside you should move quickly to the fenced-in parking lot on Bookter St. In the parking lot you will need to find the number for your first period classroom. The numbers are painted on the ground. You are to line up single-file in front of your classroom number facing the covered walkway with your backs to the street. You will remain silently in-line until instructed to head back to class.

You are asked to remain silent while filing back into the building as well. And please remember that you are to head directly back to your 2nd period class. This is not a break; no stops for water or to use the bathroom

Please remember that complete silence and full cooperation are needed from each and every one of you in order for things to go smoothly. Thank you for your attention to this.
