Catholic Schools Week Activities

7th and 8th graders journeyed to Washington D.C. to participate in the March for Life.
One of the students commented, "The March was something I will never forget. It was so inspiring
to see sooo many people that believe what you believe. I really want to go again. And it's so
amazing that I could be part of something that could change our nation."

Greetings from Bishop Hogan Memorial School! Pam Brobst, Principal

We're excited to begin the 2017 - 2018 school year. The teachers have attended some awesome professional development trainings this summer, along with putting in many hours to prepare their classrooms. We are fortunate to have such a dedicated staff. This year we will continue to implement and expand our instruction using Project Lead the Way (PLTW) We received funding from 3 grants that will help us purchase materials. PLTW gives students early experiences in the world of science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) with connections to other curriculum areas. Students seek solutions to problems, connect classroom lessons to the world around them and employ critical thinking skills, making their learning more engaging and meaningful.

Our partnership of parents, teachers and students ensures quality learning and growth. Our "Christ-centered" environment enhances everything we do. Stop by and see the good things going on at Bishop Hogan!

Pam Brobst, Principal
