gifts of time and talent.

On Tuesday, we enjoyed a convocation with Dr. Ben Carson, a world-acclaimed Pediatric Neurosurgeon in the
Washington, D.C. area. He shared his story with our students, which is a rise from limited possibilities and a single-
parent home to his present stature. He is an excellent example of what one can do with ability, focus, integrity, and

I would like to invite you to join us at 7:00 a.m. for our Masses (Tuesday – Friday) or Communion Service (Mondays

  Congratulations! Cathedral won the best Marching Band in the parade today. I was one of the judges and was in the
  reviewing stand. Great job! They looked and sounded wonderful.
       There were six bands in the parade. At the reviewing stand, two did not play
          any music, one played hip hop, and three played patriotic or service
                                 connected music, which of course was appropriate
                                 for today.
                                                Thanks for contributing to the
                                 Indianapolis Veteran's Day festivities honoring those
                                 who served our great nation.
                                 Please pass on my congratulations and appreciation to your fine band members.
                 All the best,

Remember to read your November Insight:

Parents, please feel free to share with me achievements of your son or daughter. I would like to be able to give
positive credit to our students, but if it is a non-school activity, you are my only source for this information. Such
activites may include Scouts, parish activities, serving at Mass regularly, clubs, and many more. My email address is Remember, do not just hit “reply” to this email, or your news will go into a digital
holding tank and not directly to me.

              Parents, would you and your teens or you and another couple families like to help decorate the
             school for Advent/Christmas. I do have two families who have responded, but need some other
             workers. This would involve ladders and some physical labor, but could also be a great deal of fun. The
             Arthur family, who used to do this, will send one member to explain what has to be done. This group
             will be meeting on Sunday, November 28th at 2:00 p.m. on Campus. Please email me at
    to let me know if you are coming.

From Abdul’s blog: I am in the unique position of being someone who is an opinion writer,
but uses traditional journalism techniques to gather information. Yes, I do have an agenda.
That agenda usually includes promoting economic growth, quality education, personal
freedom and law and order. And I see the world through that filter. Now I am not so
narcissistic so as not to acknowledge other points of view. If I did, I’d simply never take a
phone call on the morning show and turn the comment section off on this blog and that would
be the end of the discussion.

I realize that you have heard about ISACS (Independent Schools of the Central States), one of our accrediting agencies,
in recent emails. If you would like to know more about ISACS, here is some information.

ISACS accreditation:
     Certifies that a school is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization and operates sufficiently independent of all other
        organizations to determine its own mission and program.
     Validates that the school has met more than fifty standards of best practice for independent education.
     Confirms that the school subscribes to principles of good practice in admissions and employment.
     Requires that the school undergo a financial audit on a periodic basis and respond to any recommendations by
        the auditors.
     Requires a survey of the school’s constituencies be undertaken as part of the accreditation process.
     Attests that the school has a fully developed and disclosed mission and philosophy of education, and that its
        programs are in congruence with that philosophy.
     Requires that the school undergo a comprehensive, rigorous and thorough process of school improvement every
        seven years involving broad participation of school personnel, the board of trustees, and major constituencies.
     Requires this process to go beyond checklists and ratings of standards to narrative (where have we been, where
        are we, where are we going) and analysis (what are our issues and what are our plans to meet them) in all areas
        of the school.

Every seven years, the ISACS self-study and external review process covers all major aspects and programs of the school,
citing strengths, challenges faced, and recommendations for improvement. As part of the accreditation cycle, the school
completes a comprehensive self-study and other tasks which are then reviewed by a visiting team. The visiting team is
comprised of volunteers put together by ISACS, consisting of professionals, including classroom teachers, who
understand and appreciate independent school qualities and contributions to American education. Accreditation is
approved (or not) by the ISACS Board of Trustees based on the visiting team’s and ISACS Evaluation Review Committee’s
recommendation and findings.

Where is the Hood? The Baker Board Room? The Commons? The fine arts’ center?
            It has come to my attention lately that some of our newer parents are not familiar with our school
            campus, so when directed to one room or another, they are left confused. To alleviate this, I have
            attached maps of the Cathedral campus to the last six pages of this email. Feel free to check them out, or to
            run them off, if you wish.

On Friday, November 19th, we will have an end of the day pep rally to support our football team as they go into semi-

 Want to help support our military? This time of year is very difficult for our young, deployed men and women who
 are away from their families for the holidays. One of our own, Jamison Lupo '02,is on an 8-
 month deployment. The morale can get very low with the exhausting schedule they keep on
 top of being away from loved ones for such long periods of time. Team Peace will be selling
 "peace" bracelets during the lunch periods starting Friday, November 19th. All of the
 proceeds will go to providing care packages to the 20 sailors who are under our Jamie's
 command. They run the nuclear reactor which powers the USS Abraham Lincoln Aircraft
 Carrier. We would love to raise enough money to send each of these sailors a care package for Christmas. By
 purchasing a bracelet, you can help us with this task and perhaps it can be a visual reminder for you to pray for these
 young men and women and also for Peace. The prices will range from $15-$25....donations are also appreciated. If
 you would like more information please contact Holly Baker at or Erin Baker at or Marcia Lupo at .

Cathedral has established a Concussion Management Policy, shown below:

                                            Concussion Management Policy
                                                Cathedral High School

        The recognition and treatment of athletes who have suffered a concussion has become a national priority. As
        a result of an increasing number of studies that have revealed that concussions, not properly treated, can
       result in permanent mental difficulties. The data also suggests that concussions can lead to the development of
       dementia earlier than expected and has led to mandates by the National Federation of High Schools(NFHS),
       NCAA and the NFL. The NFHS mandated rule states “Effective with the 2010 high school season, any player who
       shows signs, symptoms or behaviors associated with a concussion must be removed from the game and shall
       not return to play until cleared by an appropriate health-care professional”.

       Recovery from a concussion requires limitation of physical activity, especially sports activity such
       as practice, drills, games, and at times even physical education classes. In significantly
       symptomatic athletes, mental activity should also be limited to allow the brain to heal. These
       activities may include limiting assignments, allowing greater time to complete quizzes and
       tests or assignments and less homework. Such activities as watching TV, texting, and
       video games may also slow the recovery from the concussion.

       Neurocognitive testing such as the ImPACT test is a computerized test that documents the athlete’s cognitive
       and speed skills. The test has been validated as an accurate measure of brain function recovery following a
       sports concussion. All athletes should have a baseline test before practice or competition, and should an athlete
       sustain a concussion, a repeat test can be performed and compared to the baseline test. This can help show the
       degree of injury and help measure when recovery has occurred. Cathedral High School has implemented
       ImPACT (Immediate Post Concussion Assessment and Cognitive Testing) for our student athletes.

       Before the concussed athlete can return to action, the most current standard of care of the sports concussion
       includes the following: (1) the athlete must be asymptomatic at rest; (2) a neurocognitive test such as the
       ImPACT test must have returned to baseline; and (3) the athlete must be asymptomatic with activity. This
       evaluation should be done by a physician trained in the treatment and management of concussions. Utilizing the
       above standards, as well as experience and judgment, this physician will be able to determine when the athlete
       has completely recovered from the concussion.

       The Cathedral High School Administration, coaches, and medical staff are striving to keep your child’s health and
       safety at the forefront of the student athletic experience. If you have any questions regarding concussion
       management, please feel free to contact Mike Hunker at 968-7361.

College Information:

The Lilly Endowment Community Scholarship applications for Marion and Hamilton County are now available from
your counselor. Cathedral High School is allowed to nominate one student who resides in Hamilton County and two
students who reside in Marion County. The initial application is to earn the nomination. Those who are nominated will
then apply for consideration for the Lilly in their respective county.
*The deadline to submit your application to the guidance office is Tuesday, November 23rd at 3:30pm.

Dear Parents:
       It’s not too early to begin thinking about the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid). This is the form
       for applying for any need based financial aid. It cannot be filed until after January 1 but there are some
       preliminary things you can do. First, realize that it is only available online at They used to
       make paper copies and we could put one in the senior mailboxes but they don’t produce those anymore.
       Secondly, you (and your student) will need a pin number that you will use to sign your FAFSA. This can be
       obtained now at the above mentioned website under Step One.

        Each state has their own deadline for FAFSA submission so you’ll want to pay close attention to that. For anyone
        that will attend a college in Indiana the due date is March 10, 2011. If you need assistance in filling out the
        FAFSA there is a “help day” called College Goal Sunday ( This is being held on
        Sunday February 20th. It offers free help from a financial aid expert who will sit down with you and help you
        complete the form that day. If you go to the website it will show you the locations in the Indianapolis area.
        Lastly, those who have attended the National Center for College Costs seminar have the services of Dave
        Murray, 877-687-7291 or Please feel free to contact him with any detailed questions
        you may have regarding financial aid.

        Students should actively be looking for scholarships at this time as well. Although our PrepHQ/ConnectEdu
        website is still being transformed the Scholarship section is up and running with over 6,000 listings. Go to
        ConnectEdu at Under the “Paying for College” section go to Search for
        Scholarships. Another good source which we also recommend to students is Fastweb,( .This
        is the largest, free scholarship search on the web.

        The majority of my students have completed at least one or more college applications at this point. For those
        who haven’t and those who are still going to complete applications, they should shoot for having them done by
        Thanksgiving. A reminder that any students who have applications with December 1 deadlines, and I need to

        write recommendation letters for, need to turn in their Application Checklist sheets to me by next Wednesday,
        November 10th.
        Thanks for all your support and help in working with your students in the college process. This class has been on
        top of things from day one and have really followed the guidelines to help us get their materials out in a timely

Service Outreach News:

Our school year offers inspirational service opportunities for our Cathedral students.

Class Service Projects As an insight regarding the good works that we can accomplish this year, ponder this scripture:
“I will look after my sheep, says the Lord, and I will raise up one shepherd who will pasture them. I, the Lord, will be their
God.” Ez 34:11, 23-24. This scripture reminds us that our core being rests in God. And, as such, it is our call to serve our
fellow mankind, as we are all sheep in God’s care. In December, sophomores will be helping serve our popular
spaghetti dinner to the Lord’s Pantry members on Wednesday, December 8 from 3:30-7:15 PM. You may also join our
outreach on Saturday, December11, 10:00-1:30, when juniors will be serving up a fabulous lunch for the Saturday noon
meal at the Cathedral Soup Kitchen. Freshmen will begin helping at the Catholic Charities Christmas Store on Nov 18
and 19 and have specific opportunities to help special families shop on Dec 4, 5, 18 and 19. Details on all of these on-
going class service projects are noted below in Service Opportunities as wonderful expressions of giving and grace.

Reminder: Save Your Coats and Jeans For The Homeless Because, Baby, It’s Cold Outside. We will having our annual
coat and warm clothes drive for the homeless on November 16, 17 and 18. We are collecting before school on the circle
in the morning and students may earn a service hour for their donations/help. Several agencies assisting homeless needs
in Indianapolis who participated at our Service Festival and expressed their need and appreciation for pants (jeans) and
coats,/gloves,/mittens, were Beggars For the Poor, Horizon House, Wheeler Mission, Cathedral Soup Kitchen and CHIP
(Coalition for Homelessness Intervention and Prevention). So clean out your closets of any warm clothing which can be
well used to keep adults warm who reside on the cold nights and streets. See detail flyer here.

   Service Reflection
   They say it takes a minute to serve a special person,
   An hour to appreciate them,
   A day to love them,
   But then an entire life to forget them.

May your Cathedral service personally enrich you and your spirituality, as we seek to
address challenges faced by our brothers and sisters in our immediate community and world-wide.

Student-Athlete Tip of the Week (11-15-10) - Property of Billy Shepherd Sports Inc. and provided by the NFHS
Are you a victim of bullying or do you know anyone that is a victim? Hopefully you aren't the culprit.
     Bullying should never be tolerated and should be reported to the proper authorities immediately. Whether it
       occurs in the classroom, athletic arena, or away from school, it's your duty as a student-athlete to report this to
       a superior at your school.
     Whether it involves you or someone you know, please don't hesitate to "do the right thing". There is no place
       for bullying so take the initiative and refuse to be a part of it.

Revelation 4:1-11

“Holy, holy, holy is the Lord God almighty!” (Revelation 4:8)

How amazing heaven must be! In today’s first reading, we get only a glimpse of its glory—and a secondhand glimpse at
that—and still our hearts thrill. Imagine the throne of God, the twenty-four elders, the four living creatures, the flashes
of lightning and peals of thunder. Just try to wrap your mind around the throne of God where, all day and night, an
unending stream of worship, adoration, and praise rises up to the Father. And what makes this even more amazing is
that all this is going on right now, even as the world continues to spin, as nations rise and fall, as armies amass, and as
families the world over experience the ups and downs of life.
Keeping this heavenly reality in our minds can help us find the right balance as we go through our days. Remember: One
day, you too will stand before the throne of God. He who has known you from all time will not just sit there unmoved,
either. He will rejoice over you!

Even now, God finds great joy in you. He delights in your faith, even as he sees the pockets of unbelief. He rejoices over
your courage, your compassion, and your love, even as he sees your struggles with temptation. He enjoys touching your
heart, helping you grow in holiness, and giving you a taste of heaven right now. All because he loves you.

There is so much we don’t understand about God or heaven. Words alone could never capture divine reality—not even
the words of the Bible. But there is one thing we can be sure of: God’s love for each and every one of us is firm. It is
unchanging. It is foundational to who we are and what we can become. Every hope and dream, every desire and longing,
every purpose and goal in our lives finds its ultimate fulfillment in God and in the home he has prepared for us.
So lift up your heart today, no matter what your situation is! Your Father has a perfect plan for you. He rejoices in you
now, and he can’t wait for the day when you will finally see him face to face!

“Thank you, Father, for your boundless love! As I walk through this day, help me to keep you and your heavenly home in
the forefront of my mind.”
