Alumna Surpasses 1000 Career Kills in Volleyball

October 10, 2018
By Admin

On October 4th, Class of 2014 Alumna, Abigail Miksch surpassed 1000 Career Kills while playing on the Air Force Academy Falcons Volleyball team. Miksch is in her 4th year serving as a cadet and playing volleyball at the Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs, CO. A kill in volleyball by definition is an attack by a player that is not returnable by the receiving player on the opposing team. This often leads to a direct point to the team initiating the kill.

Last school year, Miksch was ranked in the top 10 in the Mountain West Conference for her number of kills and points per set. She also led a squadron as a commander this summer.

Congratulations to Abigail Miksch on this accomplishment! Read More about the Air Force Falcons Volleyball Team.

Freshman Learn Dances From NW India

September 21, 2018
By Admin

This week, freshman focused on learning two dance forms from the Northwest region of India: Garba and Dandia. Garba is a dance combination of claps and turns typically performed in a circle of people dancing together to drum beats. Dandia is a dance using sticks, that typically is performed in pairs or in circle formations.

These two dance forms are performed year-round for wedding and other celebrations, however the greatest number of people come together to dance these dance forms during the festival of Navratra.

This was an impactful cultural learning experience for our freshman students! Thank you to the Monsoon Dance Company and Sankara Eye Foundation for assisting with the workshop instruction, while bringing awarness to the work of both organizations. 

Parents Include Each Student In Their Prayers

September 17, 2018
By Admin

This year, a team of parents is praying the rosary every day in the Savio Chapel at 8:30 AM. They are praying for the needs and intentions of our community and especially for three -  four specific students each day by name. The schedule of students that are being prayed for each week can be found on the list here. We will begin with freshman, moving alphabetically through each class. The goal is that all students and their prayers will be included in the prayer group each week. All parents are available to join us at your child’s scheduled date or any other day!

Students are invited to drop off any prayer requests in the wooden box, next to the chapel, to be included in the morning prayer.

All parents are invited to join in this wonderful ministry! Please come any morning or contact Tish Rudwick, Sandra Jones (sandraxjones@aol.com), or Becky Snyder for more information.
