My father was an over-the-road truck driver and my mom tended bar when I was a kid. You have any other smart-ass, unintelligent questions like this?

It is sad that the young man lost his life. It really is tragic. When most of us older folks were that age, we lost friends too in tragic accidents. Some were killed in wars. That was tragic too but we worked it out 'between each of us' without a team of doctors, councillors and social workers. It prepared us for the future where there won't be this team every time something bad happens.…

What difference does that make? Single parents don't count for you when it comes to grief over the loss of a child?

Because, CW, random shootings are very rare in Quincy. I've been living in the area all my life, and I can't name a single murder that was without cause. Whether love triangle, workplace violence, drug deal gone bad - there's always been a reason. People are dancing around this, but the assumption is that this 12-year old wasn't just randomly gunned down, but that he was part of…

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

1 year, 1 month 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.
