Here We Go!

On the first day of each week, we meet in a Whole School Prayer Circle in the first-
floor hallway next to the office. Led by a student, we collectively recite two prayers, the
Pledge of Allegiance and our Schoolwide Learning Expectations. We discuss our word-of-
the-month and talk about the events of the week ahead. Our whole group gathering sets
a positive tone for the coming week.

Every Friday at 8:45am, we celebrate School Mass along with parents and
parishioners. Older and younger student buddies sit together during Mass. Students serve
as altar servers, readers, singers in Honors Choir and gift bearers.

We look forward to a year marked by faith and learning along with fun and
friendship. Here we go!
