During the month of February, 2016, the 3rd & 4th grade is doing Pennies for Patients for their service project. All of the Bishop Hogan students are asked to color handprints for the family members and friends that cancer has touched. They will also be given collection boxes to collect spare change and bring it to school. This project includes the entire school. Please come and check out our Family Tree of Handprints. Let's help the 3rd and 4th grade have a successful service project.

Our seats are reserved! Because of the increased fan base, they only had 2500 seats in the lower level, and those were already taken by some schools with 400+ reservations. So we have tickets in the upper level. It will cost $12 instead of $17. If you have sent your check in, we will be refunding $5. The good news is we are behind HOME PLATE in rows beginning with GG!

FROM THE PRINCIPAL... We had a busy and fun Catholic Schools Week! We were proud of all of our students that had roles in the Mass last weekend. Our amazing students are always willing to step up and volunteer to serve God with their talents! Mayor Chuck Haney helped kick off the week with a Proclamation for CSW followed by a Prayer Service. Tuesday we held an all-school Spelling Bee with our 16 classroom winners. Our Spelling Champion in the finals for grades 1-3 was Emily Deshayes and for grades 4-8 was Alexis Anderson! On Wednesday, we held a Bible Bowl. On Thursday, the highlight was a luncheon celebrating City and County officials, Business Buddies, and volunteers. We had a wonderful turnout! On Friday, we celebrated our staff, students, and parents with different activities. And Monday through Friday, we began each day with a prayer for the special intentions of our parishioners! The Book Fair was a success. Thank you, parents, for buying your child some great books! With approximately $600 credit that we earned, we will be able to buy some new books for our library! Thursday, February 11, is our first 5th/6th grade basketball game. We appreciate Jason Montgomery and David Luetticke coaching our girls' team, and Ted and Teresa Hicks coaching our boys. Don't forget to join us for our first Fish Fry next Friday evening, February 12th from 5:00-7:00 p.m.! -- Principal, Pam Brobst
