General Announcements:

11th in the Robert V. Welch Student Activity Center from 2:25 p.m. until dismissal at 3:07 p.m.
We will have a special schedule for that day, but will reserve the end of the day to thank these
fine athletes for their wonderful soccer season, ending with a State Championship! They played
and won in all sorts of weather and against very strong opponents. Congratulations to the Lady
Irish Soccer Team and to Head Varsity Coach Marc Behringer.
Our State Championship Team members are: Erica Maginn, Kathleen Theisen, Allison
Scarlott, Michelle Yeager, Kelly Fitzgerald, Mercedes Gonzalez, Kati Hall, Sophie Spenia,
Cathy Cohoat, Allie Hicks, Mariah Whitaker, Jennifer Collins, Tory Schopper, Anna
Parsons, Katie Zupancic, Katie Wacker, Kassidi Smalley, Anna Ventimiglia, Kyra Riggins,
Kate Winingham, Natalie Warner, Alex Hall, Stephanie Cooler, Colleen McGrath,
Brittany Umana, Rachael Koester, Lisa Edwards, Taylor Marshall, and Cara FizGerald.
Coaches are Head Coach Marc Behringer who is aided by Missy Davis, Kevin Kubacki, Eric
Schmidt, Stephanie Behringer, and Jennifer McNamara.

Congratulations to Coach Rich Andriole, who will be recognized on Friday, January 18th by
the Indiana High School Baseball Coaches Association Hall of Fame Awards Banquet. Rich has
been selected as Coach of the Year of Class 4A and was selected for this honor by his fellow
coaches for his outstanding success during the 2007 high school baseball season.

The National Honor Society will be sending out letters of academic eligibility around the
third week of January, 2008 to all juniors with a cumulative GPA of 3.6 or higher. Any senior
who is not already a member and who has a cumulative GPA of 3.6 or higher will also receive a
letter. These letters will invite those students eligible to apply for membership in the National
Honor Society. Very specific instructions will be included on how to submit a NHS application
portfolio. For those students who think they might be eligible and who would like to begin
thinking about making their application, the following information may be useful:
      All application materials must be presented complete in a portfolio format.
      Applicants will present evidence of their 3 BEST service experiences.
      Applicants will provide letters that attest to their character from 2 persons not related to
        their school experience.

      Applicants will write a personal essay that attests to their qualities as a leader. Again, the
       specific instructions will be included in the letter of eligibility sent in January. It is
       hoped that these general guidelines will be helpful to those that may want to get a head
       start on contacting the moderators of their service experiences or persons they may want
       to write letters of recommendation for them. However, do NOT begin any part of the
       application until specific instructions are received.

Sophomore Rings: Herff Jones will be returning on Thursday, January 10th, for ring issues,
(such as re-sizing), during the lunch periods, in the cafeteria.

Whatever happened to John Queally ’05? John is now one of the drum majors in the Notre
Dame Marching Band – WOW! What an accomplishment! Great work, John. We will look for
you when the cameras focus on the band during televised games.

All students must have their ID cards to get into all Cathedral home sporting events. If you
do not, you will have to pay the same price for admission as everyone else - $5.00. If you have
not gotten a card, you must see Mr. Greer.

Jesus Christ, you may be thinking about how you can help those less fortunate at this special
