Rocket senior J. Michael Bond participated in the U.S. Youth Senate program recently in Washington D.C.! During his trip J. Michael visited the Supreme Court, Congress, Senate and listened to many speak on current issues. J. Michael also personally meet with our own Senators, Jim Inhofe and James Lankford. Additionally, he visited the White House and met with the President, Vice-President, and First Lady!


"My favorite aspect about the trip was connecting and making friends with the 103 delegates from all 50 states, D.C. and two more countries. There wasn't a night that we went to sleep earlier than 3 o'clock AM, as we were too busy passionately discussing politics. The friends and connections I've made during this week are lifelong. Congressman John Lewis said to me, "be fearless in what lights your heart on fire" and I have never been more excited be afire", said J. Michael Bond.






This morning at 10:00 am in solidarity with our other Mercy schools, Mount St. Mary Catholic High School prayed together in reflection over the P.A. in honor of the victims and survivors of not only Marjory Stoneman High School, but all victims of gun violence. Below is the prayer we prayed together as a Mount family...


Prayer for Peace
by Sister Pat Kenny, RSM
Loving God, you inspire us with love for all persons
and concern for the well-being of all creation.
Give us today the strength and courage
to transform the compassion of our hearts
into acts of peace, mercy, and justice.
Forgive us for desires for vengeance and retaliation.

Help us to renounce all forms of violence:
prejudice, unfair allegations, intolerance, and injury.
Give us the courage to resist
all actions that threaten the lives and livelihoods of innocent people.
Empower us to live out the caring presence
of the merciful and generous persons we claim to be.
Make us channels of your peace, bearers of healing,
women and men who hear and respond with alacrity
to pleas for justice in our world.
We ask all this in the name of Jesus
Who came among us to show us the way

It was a great day at the FIRST Tech Challenge State Championship for the MSM Robotics Teams! MSM was the only school with three teams representing among the 40 who qualified for the championship, and they did well as they worked hard throughout the two-day event!


The Rockettes (4962) made it all the way to the state semifinals with their robot before losing a heartbreaker against the eventual state champions. They also won the Motivate award for their outstanding community outreach efforts! They were named an alternate for advancement to the South Super Regional in Georgia. Both Makin' Stuff Move (4266) and Atomic Shock (3638) were on the cusp of making the playoff rounds and put in great efforts.


Zack Tyler and Bria Smith were named Oklahoma's two "Dean's List Finalists!" This is the highest individual award in FIRST Robotics (named for FIRST founder Dean Kamen). Zack and Bria will attend and be recognized at the FIRST World Championship in Houston in April. Erick Lassiter and Chrissa Gungoll were both semifinalists for this award as well. We have some amazing students at MSM! Congratulations to all our teams on a great FTC Season!


Next up for The Mount's combined FIRST Robotics Competition team (Team Rocket): They have to finish a 120-lb robot by Tuesday, and them compete at multi-day events in Dallas and San Antonio in March and April!
