Text of Cheerful Givers - Bishop Neumann Cavaliers Basketball · Flute / Clarinet Duet - Ehrhorn, Quinn...

  • Cheerful Givers

    “Consider this: whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows bountifully

    will also reap bountifully. Each much do as already determined, without sadness or compulsion,

    for God loves a cheerful giver (2 Corinthians 9:6-7). At this year’s GALA I was able to witness so

    many people fulfilling this passage from scripture. Obviously, the night of GALA was filled with

    hundreds of cheerful supporters of Catholic education. The smiles and the energy in the building

    were uplifting and impressive. Along with the energy in the building on April 7th, numerous

    families and supporters cheerfully gave of their time organizing events throughout the year along

    with doing an incredible job of transforming our cafeteria and gymnasium.

    Two of these supporters who have epitomized the “cheerful giver” have been Dave Engel

    and Steve Tvrdy. These two men come into the gym days before GALA and start the

    transformation process. They are the main guys hanging all of the decorations from the ceiling

    and the walls. They do all this working around PE classes and track practices going on when they

    start the transformation process. They have been a pleasure to have in the building and they have

    a good time while doing their part to make GALA a wonderful celebration of Catholic education.

    These guys along with countless other volunteers allow the night of the event to be a success.

    Thank You to everyone who volunteered and contributed in the GALA process. It is

    community support like this that illustrates how a community can get together for a great cause

    and I can’t think of many better causes than an outstanding Catholic education opportunity for the

    families of Saunders County. We all benefit from the values taught and promoted in Saunders

    Catholic Schools and we thank you for letting us help the community instill these values in your

    children.

    Yours in Christ,

    John Kreikemeier

    Campus Ministry

    Stations of the Cross were held the Fridays in Lent for the student body. Students John Celesky,

    Eli Vedral, and Jessina Rada spoke about their faith journeys and ways to make Lent more

    spiritual. Jr. High Social Studies teacher, Mr. Roche, spoke about always knowing there are many

    people we can share our burdens with and especially trusting in God so that we don’t think we are

    alone. Thomas Lilly, an alum, that attends the University of Nebraska, was also able to speak

    about his faith life in college and encouraged the seniors to get involved in the Neumann center

    and to surround themselves with people that will help them grow in their faith.

    Members of St. Elizabeth Ann Seton, JPII, and Torch were able to attend the Chrism mass at the

    Cathedral in Lincoln during Holy Week. 30 students also attended the Eucharistic Procession led

    by Bishop Conley around Planned Parenthood on March 27th. Over 500 people from the diocese

    prayed the rosary and the Divine Mercy Chaplet as the Eucharistic was carried around the block in

    prayer for the unborn. Our students are truly blessed to be part of these holy week experiences.

    Pre-Calculus Students:

    Students who will be taking Pre-Calculus next

    year will each need to have their own Graphing

    Calculator for use in class and on home-

    work. Please purchase TEXAS INSTRUMENT

    TI-83 or TI-84 model calculators. These are the

    most common calculators used in college and

    are approved for use on the ACT and

    SAT. Other models may not be approved for

    use on the ACT and SAT, and Mrs. Sladky may

    not be familiar with other models. The

    approved models can be purchased online or at

    Walmart, Best Buy, etc. You can find them

    used on Amazon for as cheap as $60 or can

    spend upwards of $130. Graduating seniors or

    students who will not need a graphing calculator

    for future math classes may sell their graphing

    calculator at the end of the school year to the

    Neumann Math department, or to a future

    Pre-Calc or Calc student. Please contact Mrs.

    Sladky if you have any questions.

    Reminder: All health paperwork (physicals, immunization updates, asthma, diabetes or anaphylaxis forms) are due to the office no later than AUGUST 1st. Forms can be found on the Bishop Neumann website.

  • The Class of 2018 is invited…. Again this year the faculty and staff at Bishop Neumann would like to continue a tradition for our senior classes. We would like to honor the senior students with an open house, this year to be held on Tuesday, May 8th, from 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m., in the Bishop Neumann High School Library. We have invited all of the students to stop by and visit with the faculty and staff members. This is in no way intended to replace faculty visits at graduation parties, but it will make it possible to spend a few minutes with each student. In the past, some of the faculty and staff are honored to receive 20-30 invitations to graduation parties and we simply cannot make them all. We want each and every student to realize how important they are, and we hope that they will stop by to see us.

  • The name of the newsletter is a play

    on words: “plume” being French for

    “pen” and English for “feather” —

    representing the pen of the journalist

    and the plume in the Cavalier’s hat.

    (Taken from the The Plume, Vol. I,

    No. 1, p. 1. Oct. 1964)
