Choir: 4th-8th Grade

We are inviting those students who are interested in singing in the school choir to join our ranks in the choir loft. At this point, the choir sings at our Wednesday morning school Mass with the expectation that they may be needed for some parish events. Our mission is to bring the gospel message to our people through song. Below are the guidelines and expectations.

Fourth through eighth grades

Sing the school Mass Wednesdays at 8:30 A.M.

Sing special feasts throughout the school year

Weekend Mass during school events, such as Catholic Schools Week

Sing for one of the Parish Christmas Masses

Rehearsals are every Friday and Tuesday at 12:05 and are returned by 12:35.

These are during their recess time, and they will be expected to be at rehearsals once they have made the commitment.

All forms are due by Friday, Sept. 23rd

Morning prayers

Thank you God for all you give us. Thank you for giving us the ability to be good students, to focus, and to be the best people we can be. Thank you for always loving us and never judging us for our mistakes. Thank you for giving us the forgiveness for our sins. Thank you for everything you do for us. Amen

Ellie Pavich- 8th Grade

Dear Lord,

Help us as a school community to grow closer to You in this academic year. We strive to be more like You and pray that You will guide us through our everyday activities. God, we pray that You will help us to start off on the right foot this school year. Guide us to try our hardest and proceed to do our best work. Thank you for granting us the desires of our hearts. Amen

Olivia Starkey- 8th Grade

Dear God,

I want to thank you for blessing us with all of these amazing things and opportunities like being able to go to this school and getting to become closer to you every day. Thank you Lord for guiding me in the right path and helping me spread your word even though I sometimes get distracted by worldly things. I want to pray that all kids will get to experience your grace and get to learn about you. I also want to pray for all of the people who have drifted away from you that they will find you again. Amen

Anna Marie Wheeler- 8th Grade

Gratitude Station

Shout out to the cafeteria staff & parent volunteers last Wednesday!

The volunteers were champions in assisting in the cafeteria Wednesday when the pizza delivery was delayed. The 6th, 7th and 8th graders had recess first as they waited for the pizza to arrive. Once the pizza arrived, the quick, pizza cutting action of Elizabeth DeLuca helped prep that pizza in seconds for the hungry junior high students. The team in the kitchen handled the difficult situation with poise and quick action. Thanks to all of them.

Internet Safety Presentation for Parents

  • Is your 11-18 year old using TikTok or SnapChat? Do you even know what these platforms are meant to do? (Spoiler alert: neither one of these apps should exist anywhere in your home)

  • Are you aware that the overwhelming percentage of children are regular consumers of online pornography? And by the way, they don’t think it’s a big deal.

  • Did you know that your tweens and teens are regularly making it incredibly easy for sexual predators and “cyberbullies” to stalk them?

  • Did you know that chances are that your child has been the cyberbully at least a couple of times?

If any of these surprised you, come and learn more at the Internet Safety for Parents

presentation on TUESDAY OCTOBER 4 th, 7-9PM in Marian Hall

Mark your calendars for TUESDAY evening OCTOBER 4 th, 7-9PM. The Home and School

Association is excited to be hosting Jesse Weinberger, nationally recognized Internet Safety

speaker, TEDx Presenter, host of Big Mama’s House Podcast and author of ‘The Boogeyman

Exists: And He’s in Your Child’s Back Pocket.

This event is for ADULTS only. Jesse will be presenting to students (grades 4-8) prior to the adult presentation. Regardless of your child’s age, this information is invaluable to all parents and caregivers. The presentation will touch on proactive and reactive strategies of internet safety. How often have you said, “I wish I had known this sooner…”? It’s never too early to learn about internet safety and it’s never too late to learn something new that will enable our children to safely navigate the digital world.
