Congratulations to Benet tennis coach Mr. Michael Hand who last Friday night was inducted into the Illinois High School Tennis Coaches Association Hall of Fame.
Junior Ring Mass
Attention Juniors: Please note that the response cards indicating that you and your family will attend the Junior Ring and Medal Mass and Ceremony on Sunday, February 5th are due no later than this coming Monday. Please bring these to the Principal's Office so that we can begin arranging seating and preparing for the reception after Mass. Secondly, please note that you must arrive no later than 10:50 a.m. for Mass because you will be seated on stage in a prearranged order for ease of ring and medal distribution. And finally, all participants should be dressed in their Sunday best for this occasion: gentleman should wear shirts and ties with a sweater or jacket preferred and ladies should wear dress slacks and blouses or dresses in which they can sit comfortably on stage facing the audience for the entire Mass and ceremony -- nothing low cut or too short for the sake of modesty. Thanks, and we look forward to honoring you a week from Sunday.
Rehearsal after school from 2:45-3:30 to prepare for this week's all school mass and Sunday's Ring Mass.
