This week’s prayer is from a student in Ms. Urbanski's Theology class:
Dear God, I come to you today humbly and gratefully that you have enabled me to have another day here with my friends and family. I have deep gratitude for you in my life. Amen. Our Lady of Mount Carmel. Pray for us.

Model UN Conference
On Saturday, November 12, the Salpointe Model United Nations Club participated in the Ironwood Ridge Model UN Conference. Participants were split into two committees: The Food and Agricultural Organization (which discussed - How food waste can be repurposed and reducing food waste to combat hunger) and The United Nations Drug Control Program (which discussed combating counterfeit medication). Our Salpointe delegation engaged in lively debate, collaboration and diplomacy with students of several Tucson area high schools, which ultimately resulted in 6 resolutions related to the discussed topics.
Please call 327-1990 if your student is going to be late or absent.
Just a reminder of the protocols regarding late check in and early dismissal.
When you call for late check in, please make sure you remind your students to check in with Student Services. It will give us an accurate time that the student has shown up and what classes they missed.
For early dismissal, we request you call 1 hour prior to when you need your student to be dismissed. We do not have an intercom system, we have TAs running passes to classes to get dismissed.
If the pick up time is within the last 1/2 hour of school, please avoid
the backups in the Glenn Street parking lot by picking up your student on Copper.

Our Character Counts commentary focused on the theme of Thanksgiving. Rylen discussed how the holidays can be viewed very differently due to the challenges and struggles found in life, but we can all benefit from expressing gratitude for those in our lives (The Gift of Gratitude). Albert continued the Thanksgiving theme and tied it into the concept of wellness. Gratitude can provide means to physical, emotional and spiritual health (Thanksgiving and Wellness).
