Morning Announcements
Wednesday, September 12, 1018

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, as this school day begins, help us focus on at least one area of our educational life in which we need to work a little harder or have a more positive attitude: a particular class, sport, or club. Give us the will to do more than just get by. Show us how to consciously use our mind, body, and spirit as a step toward to know our truest calling. Guide us, Lord, that we may walk in the footsteps of Jesus.

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.

As we enter into the middle of our 6th week of this school year we have several students who are now in need of haircuts. A local salon will now have extended hours once a month in order to accomodate SSC students who have extracurricular responsibilities after school and on weekends. Beginning today Beach Waves Hair Salon in Bay St. Louis will be open past 5:30; you will need to call and make an appointment. The number can be found on the activities board and by Mr. Clark’s office..
