Dear SCHS Families,

 

November signals the season of THANKSGIVING, a time to reflect on all the blessings God has given us. I want to thank YOU, our parents, grandparents and guardians who are sacrificing so much to send your students to Springfield Catholic High School. Thanks also to our student body, who daily bless us with their kindness, courtesy and even sometimes challenges. I am truly blessed to work with our wonderful faculty and staff for their commitment to Catholic education.  A special note of appreciation to those at SCHS that sometimes we take for granted: Mrs. Merz, Mrs. Bolls, the Central Office, custodians and maintenance staffs and cafeteria workers. And then finally to the many volunteer Boards,  alums and benefactors for their hard work, financial support and prayers to make SCHS a special place. The SCHS Community has much to be proud and thankful for at this time of year.

 

It is the the people in our lives that make all the difference in the world for us each and every day. Take time during this month of November to thank God for them AND thank them as well. Gratitude is much needed in this fast paced world in which we live.

 

Congratulations to the following students who qualify for the state math competition in April: Nate DeVoss (9), Caleb Estal (10), Eleanor Bentley (11), Nick Crites (11), and Morgan Ellis (12).

 

Please join us for our all school Mass on Wednesday @ 9 AM of this week.  Please remind your student to dress in Mass Dress Code.

The Students for Life Group and Mr. Wood hosted a successful blood drive on Friday. Eighty-six students & teachers donated blood.      

 

Please remind your student to bring in non-perishable food items for our Food Drive.  We would like to help the local parishes replenish their food pantries after the Thanksgiving season.

Thursday, November 16th is the monthly school board meeting at 7 PM.  It was rescheduled from last week. Parents are always welcome.  

 

Please, plan on attending, the fall musical, “Singing In the Rain.”  These students have worked so hard on this production!  Tickets are on sale for November 17-19.

 

Sothern Studio will be here on November 28th for students needing pictures or retakes.  Please return original package if you want retakes.

 

The Speech and Debate Team will be hosting a tournament on December 1 & 2.   This is quite the event and they can use all the help we can give.  Contact Mr.s Hance (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.) for information on how you can help.  Thank you!

 

Roy Petitfils, licensed counselor, author, and national speaker will be coming to speak to the students at Springfield Catholic on the morning of Dec. 5.  We will also host an evening for teachers, youth leaders, and parents on Monday, Dec. 4 at Holy Trinity parish.  His topic will be,  “What your kids want you to know but will not tell you.”  Please see the attached flyer.

SCHS Dress Code 2017-2018

Because the teen years are marked by independence and self-expression, teenagers generally reject the idea of a uniform since it restricts their individuality and forces a sense of conformity on them at a time when they struggle to define themselves.

In spite of this reality, it is important to communicate the importance of a uniform in the larger context of what Springfield Catholic prepares our students for. We consider pride in one's appearance to be an essential mark of the mature person, and expect that each student will reflect that pride by consistently manifesting a respectable and appropriate appearance.

Springfield Catholic uniquely brings together the academic, spiritual, athletic and extracurricular, successfully integrating learning, faith, and service. From the first moment a student sets foot in the school, he or she gets the impression of entering a formative environment, one illuminated by the light of faith.

This atmosphere is vital to the whole learning process, but especially in the formation of Christian attitudes and values, as well as affirming our Catholic identity. Ideally, this sense of structured formation of the whole Christian person should be understood as a seamless continuation of the primary educational experience of so many of our students who were formed in the Springfield Catholic School System.

Springfield Catholic has established a code of dress and appearance conducive to a serious scholastic and values-oriented environment. The uniform positively contributes to this effort by forming character and instilling a sense of self-discipline that empowers students to develop an appreciation for the greater good of all. It also promotes those skills and graces that are needed to act responsibly and successfully in adult society.

Uniform apparel can be purchased at either DeSales Catholic Book Store, 210 East Sunshine in the Wedgewood Shopping Center or Land’s End under the apparel tab from the SCHS website.  The  SCHS dress codes are as outlined.

It is the responsibility of the student and parent to insure that proper attire before the arrival at school. All students need to be in uniform upon arrival to school and remain in uniform throughout the school day.  (A.M. weight training and first block physical education are the only exceptions.) The school administration reserves the right to deem clothing inappropriate or immodest at its discretion.

Any student not in uniform may be issued a demerit and/or be sent home to change into uniform. Should this occur, parents will be notified and any class time missed will be unexcused. The consequences for an unexcused absence will be followed.

Adherence to the dress code is a condition of attendance at SCHS.  It is assumed that students and parents accept this provision, so excuses will not be considered. Students may receive demerits and/or be sent home due to dress code violations to change into school uniform. Should this occur, parents will be notified and any class time missed will be unexcused.

Out of Uniform Days

Students on occasions may dress out of uniform.  These days are usually fund raisers for a school organization or a community need.  Students may dress out of uniform and only in jeans & t-shirts. Students will be issued a demerit and sent home to change if clothing is not appropriate.

SCHS is proud to announce Sam Donze, a graduating senior at Springfield Catholic High School, has been named one of more than 4,000 candidates in the 2017 U.S. Presidential Scholars Program. The candidates were selected from nearly 3.5 million students expected to graduate from U.S. high schools in the year 2017. Inclusion in the U.S. Presidential Scholars Program, now in its 53nd year, is one of the highest honors bestowed upon graduating high school seniors. Scholars are selected on the basis of superior academic and artistic achievements, leadership qualities, strong character and involvement in community and school activities.

The U.S. Presidential Scholars Program was established in 1964 by Executive Order of the President to recognize some of our nation’s most distinguished graduating seniors for their accomplishments in many areas: academic success, leadership, and service to school and community. It was expanded in 1979 to recognize students demonstrating exceptional scholarship and talent in the visual, creative, and performing arts. In 2015, the program was expanded once again to recognize students who demonstrate ability and accomplishment in career and technical fields. Annually, up to 161 U.S. Presidential Scholars are chosen from among that year’s senior class, representing excellence in education and the promise of greatness in America’s youth. All Scholars are invited to Washington, DC in June for the National Recognition Program, featuring various events and enrichment activities and culminating in the presentation of the Presidential Scholars Medallion during a White House-sponsored ceremony.

SCHS is proud to announce seniors Alexander Thuro, Samuel Donze, and Peter Laurin have qualified as National Merit Scholarship Semifinalists.

merit

The National Merit® Scholarship Program is an academic competition for recognition and scholarships that began in 1955. High school students enter the National Merit Program by taking the Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (PSAT/NMSQT®)—a test which serves as an initial screen of approximately 1.5 million entrants each year—and by meeting published program entry and participation requirements.  In early September, about 16,000 students, or approximately one-third of the 50,000 high scorers, are notified that they have qualified as Semifinalists. To ensure that academically talented young people from all parts of the United States are included in this talent pool, Semifinalists are designated on a state-representational basis. They are the highest scoring entrants in each state.     http://www.nationalmerit.org/s/1758/interior.aspx?sid=1758&gid=2&pgid=424

It is the responsibility of the student and parent to insure that proper attire before the arrival at school. All students need to be in uniform upon arrival to school and remain in uniform throughout the school day.  (A.M. weight training and first block physical education are the only exceptions.) The school administration reserves the right to deem clothing inappropriate or immodest at its discretion.

Any student not in uniform may be issued a demerit and/or be sent home to change into uniform. Should this occur, parents will be notified and any class time missed will be unexcused. The consequences for an unexcused absence will be followed.

Adherence to the dress code is a condition of attendance at SCHS.  It is assumed that students and parents accept this provision, so excuses will not be considered. Students may receive demerits and/or be sent home due to dress code violations to change into school uniform. Should this occur, parents will be notified and any class time missed will be unexcused. 

Out of Uniform Days

Students on occasions may dress out of uniform.  These days are usually fund raisers for a school organization or a community need.  Students may dress out of uniform but appropriate for school. Students will be issued a demerit and sent home to change if clothing is not appropriate.
