What's Next?  
- SENIORS.  We're still waiting on the county and state to approve our waiver request for your graduation ceremony.  We hope to see all of you in your cars picking up your Dutch Bros on Friday, May 1, "MAYDAY!!!"  

How you can help
- LAST DAY FOR SURVEY.  We will close the parent survey tomorrow and compile the data.  PARENTS, if you have not completed the survey yet, please do so TODAY.  It's just ten (10) brief questions.  Again, the survey closes TONIGHT!

Parents, Students, how are you doing?    
- HOW IS YOUR MOOD?  How many of you are going for walks?  The weather looks to be glorious this week, so get out and get some sun on your face.  Did you know the sun helps your body synthesize vitamin D, and that vitamin D helps us ward off depression? Furthermore, according to a study published in Issues in Mental Health Nursing in 2010, "Most individuals in this country (the U.S.) have insufficient levels of vitamin D."?  So if you're feeling down, go for a walk in the sunshine!  

Prayer.  Will you take 20 seconds right now and pray with our community?

THE MEMORARE
Remember, O most gracious Virgin Mary,
that never was it known that anyone who fled to thy protection,
implored thy help, or sought thy intercession, was left unaided.
Inspired by this confidence, I fly unto thee, O Virgin of virgins, my Mother.
To thee do I come, before thee I stand, sinful and sorrowful.
O Mother of the Word Incarnate, despise not my petitions,
but in thy mercy, hear and answer me.
Amen.  

Respectfully,
Rob Rysavy
President
St. Mary's High School
