NET Team Welcome Week Schedule
With the arrival of the NET Team, there are plenty of opportunities for your students to get to know the new team. Here is what their schedule looks like next week:
MS Only: NET MS Extravaganza – Fun and Games in the MS commons area after school.
Praise and Worship in the Chapel from 3:30-4:30 p.m.
Come sit in the stands and support your fellow students as the NET Team will be at all the home games after school
Come to the first Adoration with Praise and Worship before school on Friday! Silent Adoration will continue through the end of the school day and will occur every Friday until the end of the school year.
Parents needed for Adoration
Since the NET Team will still be in training sessions their first week here, we need parents to help cover the times in the chapel that the NET Team will be unavailable. Here are the times that we need coverage in the Chapel:
Adoration for Friday, September 23
9:30 a.m.-10:30 a.m
10:30 a.m-11:30 a.m
11:30 a.m-12:30 p.m.
The NET Team will try to come in and out during their free time in between sessions, but they can’t be guaranteed to be there. After next week, we should be good to have them cover the rest of the Fridays. So if you can cover any of these time, please contact Mr. Carrillo.
CORE Team Sign Ups
Registration is open for juniors and seniors interested in joining the NET CORE Team. Sign up sheets are outside the NET Door and can be given to Mr. Carrillo.
