Email Issue with NEW.RR.COM
Please be aware that if you use a new.rr.com email, school emails may not always get through to you. According to Spectrum’s website, they were having issues. This seems to happen frequently on their end and the result is that all emails are kicked back. It is recommended to use another email provider if possible, or at least have an alternate email in your record.

Blood Drive Success
The Key Club once again hosted a successful Blood Drive on December 4. With your help, the Community Blood Center was able to register 39 donors--15 of whom were first time donors! Of these, 31 good units of whole blood were collected. Our goal was 30! These donations will save up to 93 lives in our community.
Our next monthly adoration is on Friday, January 10 in the high school chapel from 8:00am to 3:00pm, beginning with a mass at 7:15am. All are welcome! Each month, we pray for a special intention. Future intentions are as follows:
January 10—Fr. Bob Kollath, Pastor, St. Gabriel Parish
February 7—Fr. Paul Paider, Pastor, St. Mary and St. John Parishes
March 6—Alumnus Fr. John Christmann SSS, SMCHS Class of 1993
April 3—SMCHS Alumni who are missionaries
May 8—Class of 2020 Seniors

School Mass Schedule/Liturgy Attire
Below please find a link to our mass schedule for the school year. Please see the “ATTIRE” column for when liturgy attire is required. We remind students via announcements and email when there is a liturgy dress day. Students are required to participate in all events listed except for the First Friday Chapel Mass, which is optional. Please know that parents are always welcome to worship with us! http://smcatholicschools.org/wp-content/uploads/2019/10/2019-20-Liturgy-Schedule.pdf
Volunteers Needed for VEX Robotics Tournament
SMC will host a VEX Robotics High School Tournament on Friday, January 10 and Saturday, January 11. There are many volunteer spots to be filled for this big event! The spots are not limited to VEX families, but to all sports and activity families who need to fulfill volunteer hours. If you have never witnessed a robotics tournament before, it is simply amazing! Here is the link to sign up: https://signup.com/go/yEnHUPw
As a reminder, families are expected to help fill five volunteer spots per student, per co-curricular activity (to a maximum of 20 spots per family annually). The SMCS Booster Club has more than 2,000 volunteer slots to fill each year. Because every co-curricular athletic activity and club benefits from Booster Club funds, families of participants in every activity are expected to help. Have you fulfilled your hours yet this year? Thank you for helping!
