Rosary for Mary:
The month of October each year is dedicated to the Most Holy Rosary and honors our Mother Mary. The liturgical Feast of Our Lady of the Rosary is celebrated annually on October 7th. It was instituted to honor the Blessed Virgin Mary in gratitude for the protection that she gives the Church in answer to the praying of the Rosary by the faithful. We as an elementary school will be saying the Rosary in Honor of Mary every Friday in October beginning on Friday October 10, 2014 and ending on Friday October 31, 2014. We will say our Rosary at morning assembly beginning around 7:55am. Everyone is invited to attend.
Right to Life March T-Shirts:
St. Edmund Catholic School and the Right to Life Group are offering “Right to Life Shirts” to the public for $20. This is the group going to Washington DC to march in the Right to Life March. Colors are Navy Blue and Maroon. Order forms are in the high school front office. This is a Right to Life fundraiser, help protect the unborn.
No High School Mass on Tuesday:
Because it is homecoming week there will be no Tuesday Junior High or High School mass. The mass will be on Friday October 17, 2014 and it will be the Homecoming Alumni mass beginning at 9:00am.
With next week being Homecoming week at St. Edmund Catholic School we have a few reminders.
Pre-K through 8th grade students does not dress for the dress-up days. The dress-up days have always been reserved for the high school. While homecoming is a crazy week we still have to teach and it is very difficult with distractions to teach Pre-K through 8th graders.
Friday, October 17, 2014 will be a very busy day on campus with mass, alumni reception and the pep-rally. There will be a lot of alumni on campus; parking will be in short supply. Our teachers, staff and students need to remain cautious with all the extra traffic around campus.
We are asking that for the pep-rally that students in Pre-K through 6th grade not attend the homecoming pep-rally because seating will be limited. The only exception to this is if the student has a sister on court or a brother escorting a court member. If your child does attend the pep-rally they must remain seated with their parents during the pep-rally.
Homecoming Request from Father Dought:
Father Dought would like to encourage students to attend 4:00pm mass on Saturday October 18, 2014 before the homecoming dance; therefore he made a schedule for each grade and the court to take pictures. You need to follow his schedule or the freshmen will not have time to eat and get to the dance on time.
This is Father's preferred schedule for pictures:
No pictures between 3:45pm-4:45pm for mass!
Court pictures between 2:00pm-3:00pm. After court, each class will take pictures according to the times allowed. The seniors (only) 3-3:15, juniors class 3:15-3:30.
Stop for mass
His mass will be 45 minutes long, starting at 4:00pm. After mass, the sophomores will take pictures from 4:45pm-5:00pm, and freshman class from 5:00pm-5:15pm.
He was adamant that if ANYONE is late (including court), they go BEHIND the freshman at 5:15pm!! He commented that the freshman class need to be able to eat dinner and cannot be delayed because someone else is late. Thank you!!
Sophomore Class Fundraiser:
Attention St. Edmund High School Football Fans:
The sophomore class is having a homecoming football pool fundraiser.
Squares are $20.00
Booster Club Meeting:
Our sports booster club will be meeting at the Northwest Community Center on Wednesday October 15, 2014 with the social beginning at 6:30pm
Booster Club Auction:
Thank you to everyone who donated, worked, set-up and purchased items from the Blue Jay Booster Club Auction. Your support of our children is greatly appreciated. Because of you the auction was a huge success. I know several people who worked very hard on this auction your work certainly paid off.
St. Edmund Blue Jay Football v Westminster:
Our Blue Jays next took on Westminster in Opelousas at 7:00pm on Friday October 3, 2014 and came away with a huge shutout victory. This was a great way to end our non-district football season.
Our Blue Jays now move into district action with a road game at Catholic Pointe Coupee in New Roads on Friday October 10, 2014 at 7:00pm.
7th and 8th Grade Football:
Our 7th and 8th grade T-Jays played a hard fought game in Opelousas last Tuesday night. Behind 20 to 0 at halftime and 26- to 6 in the third quarter they battled back to end the game at 20 to 26 and had a very good chance at winning late in the game.
Our 7th and 8th graders will be battling the Iota Middle School on Tuesday October 14, 2014. The game will be played at Blue Jay Field beginning at 6:00pm.
5th and 6th Grade Football:
Our 5th and 6th graders had another great game on Saturday as they shutout Opelousas Catholic 20 to 0. These boys are playing really well and are so much fun to watch.
Our boys now play St. Gen. on Saturday October 11, 2014 in Lafayette. The game is scheduled for a 1:00pm start.
Principal and/or Assistant Principal Comments:
This is one of those weeks that distractions are hard to avoid. The kids are excited because it is homecoming, the parade, game and of course the announcement of our new homecoming queen and the dance on Saturday night. I think we have a great court this year. These young ladies are very special and I wish them a faith-filled week of fun and memories that will last a lifetime. I always worry about homecoming and prom. Please encourage your children to be careful and smart about what they are doing. While I am not their parents, I do love my children and will be praying for their safety and hoping that they have a wonderful, memory filled homecoming 2014.
God Bless, and have a great, fun and safe week, James
