We are in need of a flatbed trailer and a driver for the homecoming parade on September 18. The 3rd and 4th grade would appreciate any help in decorating the parade float for Bishop Hogan.

7th and 8th grade basketball starts soon! Practice begins Tuesday, September 1, 2015. First home game is October 8.

After school care is available from 3:00 to 5:00pm. Cost is $27.00 for one child, $22.00 for 2 children, and $17.00 per child after three or more. Drop ins are $6.00. Call the office with any questions 660-646-0705. (Prices on early release days may be different.)

Bishop Hogan School is an important part of St. Columban's parish. We can return their continued support of us by participating in the annual Fall Festival on Sunday, September 20, from 12-4:00 p.m. The Festival is a fun day on the church grounds that involve the parish, school, and community. We hope that you can bring your whole family to enjoy the day and perhaps give an hour to assist with games. (You should have received a sheet with volunteer opportunities.) You will find plenty of good food, fellowship, and entertainment!

All families are required to pay their tuition through the Smart Tuition system. A flyer is being sent home with the students explaining the system to you. All school billing has been going through Smart Tuition since the 2013-2014 school year. If you have questions or concerns about Smart Tuition and your payment plan, please contact the school office. We will help you any way we can. Thank you for your patience.

SOAR CARDS - more info below and here...

We now have the capability of allowing customers to use their credit or debit card. Ask us about it! Thank you for your continued support of our SOAR cards and for telling your work colleagues and neighbors! You can go to to see the total listing of businesses nationwide that are included in your options.
