This week's Monday ministry moment asked us to pause and LISTEN to what is happening in our minds and hearts. At the end of our prayer today, we will have a short moment to pause and reflect before moving on. As we begin our time of prayer today, we listen to the words of Pope Francis:
"You are calling on us to seize this time of trial as a time of choosing. It is not the time of your judgement, but of our judgement. A time to choose what matters, and what passes away. A time to separate what is necessary from what is not. It is a time to get our lives back on track..."
Spend a moment thinking of one way you have, or would like to, choose what matters to you, during this shelter in place?
... (10 second moment)
We close our prayer in the name of all that is good and holy. Amen.

ASB Leader Meeting Schedule - HERE
We have several students for whom potentially life-threatening food allergies are a reality. In order to ensure the safety of these students, we want to inform, and remind, everyone of the following:
1. There is a strict no food/beverage policy in ALL buildings, including classrooms and common areas (i.e. couch in Manley foyer). The only exception is for classrooms used for club/co-curricular meetings, at the end of which ALL desks where food was consumed need to be wiped down with the food-surface-safe spray.
2. There will be one table in Pardini, 3rd St Cafe, SLC Lounge, and SLC Courtyard that is designated as ALLERGEN FREE. Students choosing to sit at these tables MUST NOT consume any products with eggs, shellfish, or nuts/tree nuts.
3. There are particular classrooms that will be marked as nut-sensitive. If you are in one of these marked classrooms for a co-curricular activity or club meeting, please be mindful to not consume nuts in this room, and to be sure to carefully wipe down desks.
Lunch Line Reminders
During lunch and brunch, the only entry to the line for the cafeteria is through the side door of the gym. ALL BACKPACKS must be placed along the inside wall of the gym in a SINGLE row. Do not leave them on the steps going into the gym, nor the breezeway, nor piled right in front of the gym door.
Picnic Table Etiquette
Picnic tables in Pardini Park and the 3rd St Cafe are all first-come, first served. This means that nobody can claim a table as theirs for the school year, nor can anyone remove items that a student(s) have placed there before going to purchase their lunch or heat up their lunch. Additionally, the tables are for SITTING -- there should not be any tables only used for storing bags during the entire lunch period. We need every table we have in order to accommodate our student body, so please do not waste table space by simply storing things on them. Be courteous and respectful to your peers; invite other students to sit with you if you have space, and respect other people's belongings if they have set them down at a table at the start of the period.
