“Be kind. Be thoughtful. Be Genuine.
But most of all, be thankful.”
- Mercy Students of the Month for November:
- Camryn Anderson (9th grade) is absolutely full of ROCKET Pride. You can find her in the stands at our football and volleyball games and doing everything she can to spread her love for our school and our community. She's always got a smile on her face, and she has one of the biggest hearts around. She has come a long way since she joined our Mount Family, always making an effort to meet new people and spread positivity through love and respect.
- Nicholas Howard (9th grade) is someone who makes a point to know everyone at school. He goes out of his way to put a smile on your face in the hallway. He holds the door open for everyone passing by and takes time out of his day to do nice things for others. He is selfless and kind and is the definition of what it means to be a ROCKET!
- Last Friday, ROCKET Football finished its football season with a tough loss to Douglass High School, and what a GREAT season it was! We are extremely proud of our Coaches, our Players and Managers, and our ROCKET Families! Thank you for your continued support and for helping us to make it to the District Playoffs. GO ROCKETS!!!
- Our ROCKETS AGAINST HUNGER FOOD DRIVE has come to an end, and we are deeply appreciative of all who participated! As a school, we collected over 13,000 cans for the Regional Food Bank! The class with the most cans is the SENIOR CLASS! Not only do they win the honor, but they will also be treated to a lunch catered by Raising Cane’s Chicken…their favorite!
- And if your middle school child is interested in LEGOS, our Robotics Team is hosting the “First LEGO League Robotics Tournament.” The event is this Saturday, November 19th, here at MSM. For additional details, contact Mrs. Magi Whitaker at 631-8865 or firstname.lastname@example.org
- When you see student-athletes Chandler Whitney (12th grade) and Isabel Staudt (12th grade), please congratulate them on being selected OKC Friday Newspaper - Mount St. Mary Athletes of the Week! Chandler plays ROCKET football, and Isabel is a swimmer for the ROCKET Swim Team!
- And speaking of our ROCKET Swim Team….This past Tuesday, the ROCKETS traveled to Harrah High School to compete against 150 swimmers from some big schools like Putnam North, Choctaw, Westmoore, Southmoore, and a few 5A schools were participating, too. Our Boys Team placed 4th out of 8 teams. Our Girls Team placed 6th, outscoring Southmoore and Ada! Tony Owens (10th grade) took his first step to returning to State by placing 2nd in the 500-yard Freestyle! Sean Lipps (12th grade) placed 2nd in the 100-yard Breaststroke! Our Boys Relay Team (Andrew Wagner, Dat Cao, Tony Owens, and Alex Bohn) finished 2nd!
