Daily Announcements for Friday, September 27, 2019

Office News:

Thursday will be a dress down day for a $1 donation to Operation Smile.

Thanks for helping make this a great Pride Week! Let’s finish the week strong by making good choices before, during, and after the game this evening. You know we expect you to act as men of character. Also, as we expect a large crowd both in the parking lots and inside the stadium, remember lots of parents and other non-Trinity adults will be watching to see how you act when you’re away from school. Specifically, do not be tempted to drink or be under the influence of any drugs. The consequences for doing so are major. Represent! Like always, the code of conduct applies at this game and will be enforced. Our expectation, though, is that there won’t be any issues to address.  We look forward to seeing you tonight! Go Rocks! Trinity Forever!

Junior Retreats start next week on Tuesday, Oct. 1! You will go in alphabetical order, so check the rosters posted on the cafeteria flatscreens, outside of Campus Ministry offices and in your theology classrooms. On your retreat day, report to the cafeteria instead of 1st block. You can dress down in jeans, tennis shoes, and a Trinity shirt, and dress for the weather—part of the day will be outside. You’ll be off campus all day and lunch is included. Details will also be sent to your school email the day before your retreat.

October 1        Abel – Black

October 8        Bogel – Cash
