Morning Announcements
Tuesday, December 4, 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.

Heavenly Father, as we look around and see so many who pay no attention to Jesus your Son and who celebrate Christmas as a secular holiday, we realize that we too are often guilty of leaving you out of our life. We reserve no room for you in the inn of our hearts. Help us to examine our lives today and confess our sins in the hope of your loving forgiveness.

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. 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.

Rock Workshop
Today we will hold a Rock workshop after 2nd period. Please check the rosters in the Resource Center for the room number you are to report to. Seventh and eighth graders competing in the Spelling Bee are to report to the library.

Athletic Results
The junior high soccer team dropped a hard fought match against Biloxi 1-0 last night. Ayden Babb was credited with ten saves and the defense was anchored by Brennan Couvillon. Edward Dezendorf, David Bonck, and Nick Compretta also had outstanding efforts.

Library Accounts
All library accounts must be cleared by this Friday for students to take exams. A list of students that need to clear their accounts is posted on the Activities Board. Students will not be allowed to check out books this week, but you can again next week to have books for exams or the upcoming break. Please see Ms. Brannin if you have any questions.

Band Members
Band and choir members who are participating in the Advent Mass next week need to go to lunch today at 11:45. After eating, you are to report to the Band room to practice for the Mass. If you have not yet done so, please pick up a permission note from Brother Bernie.

Coding Week
The library is celebrating Coding Week again this year with activities each day during lunch starting today and lasting through Friday. Whether you have zero experience or are already coding, there are challenges for everyone. Prizes include a raspberry pi motherboard and an ozobot bit boding robot.

Sock Donations
As you may have noticed the weather turned a lot colder overnight. We are lucky, we just pull out jackets and sweatshirts, maybe put an extra blanket on our beds, and carry on. Imagine if you didn’t have a coat to put on, or a nice cozy bed to sleep in, or even a good PAIR OF SOCKS to keep your
feet warm. That is the reality for many of the people SSC helps to feed at King’s Kitchen. We can change that. This week the Senior class will be collecting socks to donate to King’s Kitchen. Any kind of new socks are welcome-men’s or ladies. You can drop them off in Ms. Gagnet’s room or give
them to any senior. Let’s see if we can collect 100 pairs of socks in three days!! We are making a difference at King’s Kitchen in providing people with hot meals and conversation, now let’s help keep
them warm. Go Rocks!

Key Club
There will be a Key Club meeting today at 3:45 PM in room 211. See Mr. Moody if you have questions.

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

The lunch for today is chicken and sausage jambalaya; or hamburger; or chicken yakitori salad.

Quote of the Day
Today’s words of wisdom come from British author John Bunyan, who once advised that: “You have not lived today until you have done something for someone who can never repay you.”

Thanks for your attention. Ametur Cor Jesu!
