There has been a lot of info about the school board election in the media. But, Are the same people that were on the Quincy Park Board running? Or, maybe that election isn't held at the same time the School Board Election? Sorry to see Jeff M. go, although I didn't agree with him all the time.

What property of the city does Comsast use? The biggest chunk of property leased to them is probably Amerens power poles, unless they have buildings residing on city property that I am not aware of. the fee paid to the phone company is paid by whoever is leasing the line. If Adams provides DSL to a customer in quincy and they do not have any plant in the area but AT&T does Adams can rent the line…

I think Ameren pays also. Maybe we should put up toll booth to enter city so we can tax the people from out of town for using our services. I guess we get them at the cash register but we pay that also

They..... I'm fully aware of some of there wages as well! But there not in the media making comments about things they don't know anything about! Irving should have been sold along time ago! We have people renting it from us knowing we will never use this building again! I mean look at Dewey school way worse than Irving by far, but our kids are in that building still! I don't want to…

Blessed Sacrament Catholic School faculty members to present at 2014 Missouri Leader in Me Symposium

9 months, 4 weeks ago by Bob Gough

School will be closed Tuesday and Wednesday while teachers participate

 

 

Blessed Sacrament Catholic School will be closed Tuesday, February 25 and Wednesday, February 26, 2014. Faculty members will attend the 2014 Missouri Leader in Me Symposium in St. Charles, Mo.  Blessed Sacrament received the coveted recognition of becoming a Lighthouse school in December 2012 by Franklin Covey, Inc.  The Lighthouse status is given to schools who meet strict requirements regarding the incorporation of the Eight Habits of Highly Effective People.

 

The staff of Blessed Sacrament was asked to not only attend the 2014 Missouri Leader in Me Symposium, but also to present at it.  Chris Reichert, principal of Blessed Sacrament, states, “We were truly honored to be asked to present at the Symposium.  This will be a great opportunity for our staff to share their experience and learn from other schools who are involved in creating leaders within their school.”

 

The entire staff will attend the two day symposium and several of the staff members will be presenting at it.  Their session is titled “Covey + Christ = Catholic Lighthouse Leaders.” The purpose of their session is to share methods, ideas, and lessons that showcase the entwinement of Catholic identity with the Covey habits.  They will also share information on how to incorporate the habits into the school environment, mission statement, language and more while maintaining and supporting their Catholic identity.

 

The families of Blessed Sacrament have been very supportive of this opportunity as well.  “We know it is an inconvenience for the parents to have their children off school for two days in the middle of the week, but our families also recognize what an honor this is,” states Reichert. Blessed Sacrament students will make up the two days later in the year.  The teachers were scheduled to have an institute day on March 17, but students will now attend school on that day.  Blessed Sacrament will also shorten their Easter vacation by one day so that students can make up the second day on April 17.
