The mission of our school encompasses the education of the whole person- spirit, mind, and body within the tradition of the Catholic Church.  This last week’s accomplishments by our students exhibit all three aspects.  Our students received many accolades in academics, character, fine arts and athletics.  We also had students deepen their relationship with God.

Congratulations to senior Jenny Uriostegui who received the Good Citizenship Award this Saturday from the Fort San Luis Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution for her dependability, service, leadership, and patriotism.

Congratulations Perry O’ Connor and his team for placing first in the Commissioner’s Academic Challenge, a highly academic statewide high school tournament.

Congratulations to three of our students who were confirmed last Sunday at St. Thomas More:   Jacques Dixon, Johnathan Herrara, and Ian McFarlin.

Congratulations to Seniors Natalie and Savannah Laywell for being named Scholar-Athletes of the Week.  With their competitive spirits and tremendous drive, they are our co-valedictorians and three-sport athletes.  We are proud of all they have accomplished while they have been at SJPII and can’t wait to see what they do in the future!

Congratulations to our All-Big Bend Soccer nominees –  Nina Ijeoma Second Team, Braidan O’Connor First Team, Spencer Duffy Second Team, and Fernando Huapilla Honorable Mention.
Congratulations also to our All-Big Bend Basketball players – Allan Jeanne-Rose All-Big Bend Player of the Year and First Team, Chosen Levarity Defensive Player of the Year and First Team, Tyreke McElwain First Team and Logan Roberts Third Team.

Congratulations also to Stanley Georges who qualified for Regionals in 400 meters, Natalie Laywell who qualified for Regionals in 3200 meters and the girls’ relay team who qualified for Regionals. Congratulations to all our runners!

I hope you were able to see our musical Thoroughly Modern Millie this weekend.    Many long hours went into this production!  Thank you to all the parents who helped in every way from design set, costumes, concessions and more.  Our students not only are talented on the stage but also behind the scenes.  Our students are stage managers, costume directors, costume assistants, set designers, and light and sound directors.  They are truly a gifted group! Congratulations to all of our students for three amazing shows and thank you, Ms. Ruiz, for her dedication, time and talents that she provided these past months to our school.

During this season of Lent, we will be offering Confessions to our students tomorrow Monday, April 15th, from 10 am to 12 pm.

Eucharistic Adoration is every 2nd and 4th Monday, in the chapel starting at 8 AM.  There are still time slots available if you can spare one hour of your time to come and pray.  Adoration will be on the 2nd and 4th Mondays of every month.
