We held our
Veteran's Program on Thursday, November 12.
We had a large number of people in attendance, and over 100 guests stayed for lunch.
PROGRAM THANK YOU
To the staff, students, and Mary
Garr: I would like to express my appreciation to all who were involved in the
program to honor veterans. I have attended every one you have had and the time you must put in amazes me. The
performance of the children is unbelievable. You have the best program of all that are held. Thank you for what you
do not only for veterans but for your students as well . Sincerely Don Underwood
Audrey Hamlin from the American Red Cross held an assembly for the students
recently. She explained that one donation of blood can save
three lives. She also taught the students about the
four components that make up the blood and that's why it can be used for so many different illnesses. Ms. Hamlin told students our collection goal was 27 units of blood. Students should have papers with more information for anyone wanting to donate blood, if you are comfortable doing so.
Congratulations to both the Boys and Girls basketball teams and their coaches for a wonderful season. Both teams received 1st place in the Laredo and Pleasant View Tournaments. Great Job!
You will notice 'ACRE Test' across the top of your original school calendar. This is a required
religion test for the Diocese for grades 5 and 8 only. This assessment was developed by the National Catholic Educational
Association. It assesses the religious programs, gives us a picture of where our students are in terms of their basic religious knowledge, and assesses the religious beliefs, attitudes, practices, and perceptions of students in these grades. We use this information to evaluate our curriculum needs. Father is involved in this evaluation and has been instrumental in planning changes that need to be made. This test will be given on November 24 and will take about an hour.
The students of Bishop Hogan conduct a food drive every month. The canned goods the children bring on T-shirt for Food and the Jean and T-shirt for Food days are collected by Mrs.
Blattner's 5th and 6th grade class and given to a local charity or food bank. This
month's collection went to the House of Prayer.
If you're bringing in the labels from Campbell's soups, please make sure to include the Proof of
Purchase (Bar code) AND the red square! Thank you, Thank you!

"The Spiritual Works of Mercy are charitable actions by which we come to the aid of our neighbor in spiritual necessities, those being focused on getting a soul to
Heaven." The Spiritual Work of Mercy that we are teaching about in November is
"Instruct the Ignorant". It calls us to care for the spiritual life of others. For our
students, it means showing someone how to pray, not going along with something
when it is obviously wrong, and telling the person why. It is
showing them the way and showing others by our actions how to live our Catholic identity fully in faith, hope
and charity, so that people are attracted to the Spirit of God within us. Like Saint
Francis of Assisi said, "Preach the gospel at all times, and if necessary, use
words". Thanks to Steve Crawford, David May, and Ed Englert, our boiler is fully functional
and working! We appreciate their expertise and time in making sure we stay warm at school! Just in time for the
cold weather! We want to thank you for attending our Holiday Bazaar and Soup Luncheon and for buying raffle tickets for the decorated tree in our front lobby. Angie Huwar was the lucky winner! We had a nice crowd, served lots of soup, sold boxes and boxes of cookies, and had happy vendors. It was another successful year! Plan to
attend or have a booth at our event next year!
We appreciate our parents who worked so hard both Friday and
Saturday. Our float for the Holiday Parade on Saturday, depicting the
Polar Express, was constructed by the parents of students in first and second grade. It was phenomenal! Father Kneib made the perfect conductor! The
float took first place in the Nonprofit Division and won the Grand
Marshall's Trophy. Our parents have talent galore! Our 7th/8th grade basketball season ended on Thursday, November 16. Although the boys and girls lost their
games to Hale, they made us so proud of how hard they played both games from start to finish! We held 8th grade
Recognition between the games. We recognized: Hesston Campbell, son of Clint and Kathy Campbell. Hesston played basketball 3 years for Chula and 1 year for
BHMS. Logan Potts, son of Bill and Debbie Potts. Logan played basketball 5 years for BHMS.
Josie Reeter, daughter of Jamie and Julia Reeter. Josie played basketball for 4 years
and cheered for 1 year at BHMS. Olivia Cross, daughter of Nathan and Kristi Cross.Olivia cheered for 3 years for
