Reminders for the Kostka Feast Day Mass

November 07, 2013

One of the goals of the Junior High School is to facilitate the transition of our students from grade school to high school in terms of the curriculum as well as formation programs. Among the initiatives we have identified to achieve this goal is the participation of our Junior High School students in some events of the Ateneo Grade School and Ateneo High School in addition to our own activities at the JHS.

We will be joining the Ateneo High School Community in the Mass in honor of St. Stanislaus Kostka on Wednesday, 13 November 2013. Please note the following guidelines:

Please make the necessary arrangements for your son to be brought directly to the Ateneo High School campus by our usual starting time, 7:15 am, on Wednesday, 13 November 2013. Faculty members and administrators of the JHS will be stationed in strategic locations at the High School drop off areas starting 6:30 am to meet the students. The students will be directed to the High School covered courts where they are to stay until the Mass begins.

All students are required to come in the complete daily school uniform which includes the ID. However, the students may come in rubber shoes instead of leather shoes. Those students who will have PE classes on Wednesday will be given specific instructions by their Class Moderators and PE teachers.

Students will be instructed by their Class Moderators to come only with their SMALL BAGS which should basically contain their Student Planner, pens, food and other usual necessities. We pray for good weather on that day but it would help if you can instruct your sons to include a small, foldable umbrella in their small bags.

Teachers will be conducting the classes for the day in a manner that will not require the textbooks and other materials.

The students will be provided simple snacks for recess after the Mass.

After taking their snacks, the students will be walking back to the Junior High School together with the teachers and administrators.

All students who will be unable to walk back to the JHS together with the rest of the student body because of asthma or other medical conditions are required to present an excuse letter to the Grade Level Coordinator concerned by Friday, 8 November 2013 for approval. Vehicles will be provided for the students whose requests will be approved.

Regular classes will be conducted throughout the rest of the day. Students will be dismissed at 3:35 pm.

We look forward to a meaningful and memorable experience for our Junior High School students as we join the Ateneo High School community in the Mass in honor of St. Stanislaus Kostka at the Ateneo High School, 13 November 2013!
