Our students have spent many hours giving back to our community throughout the year. On Thursday,
each class spent time taking care of our neighbors! Ask them about their experiences!
K, 1st / 2nd - Picked up trash around the school neighborhood
3rd / 4th - Visited Morningside Nursing Home and read to the residents
5th / 6th - Took food to the needy & served lunch at The House of Prayer
7th / 8th - spent the afternoon cleaning at the new North Missouri Center for Youth & Families Center that Daniel
Savage is opening
Grubaugh's husband is a Missouri State Trooper. Recently, he was offered and
accepted a job with the Water Patrol which will require them to move out of the area.
For this reason, she regretfully informed us that she will not be returning as a teacher
at Bishop Hogan. Selfishly, we were very sad to hear her news. She has been an
awesome addition to the staff, and we will miss her. We appreciate your prayers as
we find a replacement for the first and second grade position.
Congratulations to our eighth graders on their graduation on Saturday, May 17! Their
last day of classes was Friday, May 16. The graduates are Emily Skoglund, Garret Donoho, Colin Carlton, and Noah Cross. This class is full of personality! We are proud of the leadership they have provided to the younger students, inside school and out. We wish them all the best in their next step into High School. We will miss these students!
Bishop Hogan held its annual Talent Show/Spring Concert on Tuesday, May 13. There were several groups as well as individual performances. Mrs. Mary Garr does a nice job organizing and helping students
'shine' as they perform their talent. And the talent is certainly abundant with these kiddos!
Show May 13, 2014
Kindergarten, 1st and 2nd
Grade Went on a Field Trip to Wonderscope May 7.
The main rule at Wonderscope
was to TOUCH EVERYTHING and EXPLORE through your senses. Our kiddos did a fantastic job of following the #1
rule. Each room had a different theme and was filled with something fun and interactive for them to do! Everything
from a room made out of Legos to creating their own art, building a treehouse in
Tinkerspace, Farm to Market, Baby Nursery/Pet Grooming/Vet Hospital, and Raceways (a room filled with race tracks for golf balls). Our children
and adults thoroughly enjoyed themselves while learning/playing with their hands. We also met two new friends,
Oreo and Teddy, who were Wonderscope's guinea pigs. I think Wondersope may be a place that we would like to
revisit in the future. We had a great day! (I think the teachers had fun too!)
PE days are Tuesday and
Thursday - Please remind your child to either wear or bring or bring tennis shoes to school on those days.
cold weather, we want to remind you to dress your students in warm
clothes. It is important for your children to wear long sleeve shirts, bring a
warm winter coat, a hat, and gloves.
WILL CEI HURT PUBLIC SCHOOLS? - The
Children's Education Initiative
(CEI) will not reduce state funding to public schools. In fact, this education tax
credit program allocates 50% of its benefits exclusively to public schools. The
10% reserved for special education will primarily benefit public schools. For
more information. contact the Missouri Catholic Conference at 800-456-1679.
and Petition form information is also on our St. Columban
School will dismiss at 12:15 p.m. for early outs and for monthly in-service meetings. The dates and times will be listed on the annual school calendar, monthly calendar,
Eagle's Nest and Church Bulletin. No lunch will be served on these days.
& AND A MOVIE RETURNS
The Columbian Squires will be hosting the Dinner and a Movie program again
in 2014. The programs are held the 2nd Wednesday of each month. For more information you can visit www.squiresdinner.info.

Children (NCMEC) that provides age-appropriate resources to help teach children how to be safer on- and offline. The program is designed for children ages 5-17, parents and guardians, educators, and law enforcement. With resources such as videos, games, activity cards, and presentations, NetSmartz entertains while it educates.
NetSmartz Goals: Educate children on how to recognize potential Internet risks; Engage children and adults in a two-way conversation about on- and offline risks; Empower children to help prevent themselves from being exploited and to report victimization to a trusted adult.
