This Friday, we will have an all-school mass to celebrate the Immaculate Conception of Mary. Dec. 8 is a holy day of obligation in the Catholic church, which honors Mary, the mother of Jesus, for being born without sin and for being faithful to God’s will. Report to Advising in the morning and we’ll be dismissed from there to the gym and sit with advising groups. Seniors—you will sit as a class in chairs on the floor. School will still dismiss at 2 p.m. Students are encouraged to wear sport coats!
