Canned Food Drive
As in years past, we are also encouraging students to practice the virtue of almsgiving by bringing non-perishable food items, traditionally referred to as canned food, for offering during the Thanksgiving Mass. Each homeroom will bring up their collected items during the Presentation of the Gifts and we hope and trust that all students will help give to those in need. In particular, this year’s canned food drive will go towards Karidat and the Annual Operation CNMI Homefront Support.
Operation CNMI Homefront Support
As we prepare to gives thanks, let us also come together and give thanks to our men and women in the armed services. Given all that they sacrifice and are willing to sacrifice, the least we can do is show them how much we appreciate their service. In particular, the school’s honor societies are working with organizers of the Annual Operation CNMI Homefront Support to collect the names and addresses of CNMI military personnel. If you have names and addresses of such personnel, please send their names, branch of service, and full mailing address to firstname.lastname@example.org.
MCS Faculty/Staff Christmas Party
Please sign up for this year’s Faculty/Staff Christmas Party, which will take place at Kanoa Resort on Saturday, December 6, from 6:00 pm to 10:00 pm. It is free for MCS employees, but guests will be assessed a $24.00 fee per guest.
Feast of the Immaculate Conception
As we have done every year, Mount Carmel School students in grades 2 through 12 will participate in the Diocese of Chalan Kanoa’s Feast of the Immaculate Conception on Monday, December 8. Students will report to their homeroom classes at 2:00 p. m. before proceeding over to the Cathedral for the 3:00 p. m. rosary and 4:00 p. m. Eucharistic Celebration. We anticipate the celebration to end by 7:00 p. m. If all students in those grades participate, all students will be granted both a dress-down day and a Movie Day.
December 19: Christmas Program
As we did for last year, for this year’s December 19th Christmas Program, each grade level must sing at least one song without a CD or tape background. Supporting instruments (such as guitar, piano, percussion, etc.) are permitted. Each grade level may also prepare a dance with a CD or tape background, so long as that grade level still sings one song. Also, grade levels will NOT be allowed to sing the same songs as other grade levels, so please submit your grade level’s song to the main office as soon as possible. Song selections will be given on a first come, first served basis.
1) See with Christ’s eyes
2) Hurt no one
3) Use equipment properly
4) No sports equipment
5) No food, drinks, or gum
Children under 12 must be supervised.
Be responsible for your belongings.
