                                Student Insurance
                                   A portion of each student’s course fees is for student/athlete insurance coverage. Students have
                                coverage for injuries and accidents that happen during the school day at Bishop Dwenger or while
                                participating in extracurricular school-sponsored activities. Eligible covered expenses will be paid
                                which are in excess of other valid and collectible insurance. Claims should be submitted to the
                                parent’s insurance first.
                                   If an injury occurs, seek medical care through your usual providers. Then, contact the business
                                managers, who will obtain information required to complete the school’s portion of the claim
                                form. The claim form will be sent to the parents who must complete their portion. The parents
                                then mail the completed form, along with an Explanation of Benefits from their insurance
                                and any corresponding itemized bills, to the plan administrator’s address shown on the form.
                                All correspondence after this point should be between the plan administrator and the parents.
                                Completed claim forms must be submitted within 90 days of the date of the injury.

                                Tuition Payments
                                    Thanks to all of you who returned the Tuition Commitment Form and have paid, or are
                                paying, according to the terms of that agreement.

                                    If you are enrolled in the FACTS monthly payment plan, it is your responsibility to have
                                adequate funds in your account on the date of the automatic withdrawal. Any requests to modify

       The BIGGEST mistake I made was thinking if the children saw that I didn’t smoke, I didn’t drink or do drugs, they
    automatically would know they shouldn’t either. BIG MISTAKE!!!
       Not talking sends a signal to the child that it must be ok. And just because they are smart and gifted doesn’t mean
    you can skip the talk. Think about this, didn’t you from the time they were toddlers start saying `NO’ hot, `NO’ car
    coming, `NO’ you can’t go there or `NO’ you can’t do that? Then why on earth would you not talk to them about
    drugs and alcohol. Talk to them often, weekly, monthly, even when they roll their eyes. Remember, you’re not trying to
    be popular, you’re making an effort to save your child’s life.

         Latin Trip

     by                           In June 2008, my wife and I had the honor of escorting nine Latin students across Italy. The
     Chad Chenowith           trip was offered in the fall of 2007 to all former and current Bishop Dwenger Latin students.
                              Our group left from Indianapolis early on June 17th and arrived in Milan the next day. Our
                              first stop was Venice. The students took gondola rides through the famed canals of the city and
                              afterward visited the Doge’s Palaces as well as St. Mark’s Basilica. Our travelers continued to Siena
                              where they saw the preserved head and thumb of St. Catherine in the Church of San Dominico.
                              Florence was the next destination included such artwork as Ghiberti’s baptistery doors and
                              Michelangelo’s David. After crossing through the Tuscan countryside, we stopped in Pisa where
                              students took numerous photos of themselves holding up the leaning tower of Pisa. In Sorrento,
                              our soccer fans watched the Euro Cup in local cafes as Spain beat Italy in an overtime shootout.
                              The next day, I took the underclassmen with me as we hiked for forty-five minutes uphill and
                              visited the last home of the Emperor Tiberius: the Villa Jovis. As a reward, we treated ourselves to
                              fresh squeezed juice and enjoyed the view of Capri’s shoreline. After touring the ruins of Pompeii,
                              our trip concluded in Rome. The highlights of our last day included St. Peter’s Square in Vatican
                              City (where each student purchased an item to be blessed by the Pope), the Sistine Chapel,
                              Trajan’s column, the Pantheon, the Forum, and the Coliseum.
                                  Our Bishop Dwenger students were superb ambassadors and conducted themselves as mature
                              and respectful American visitors. They lit candles and prayed for loved ones in each church we
                              visited. Unlike many other visitors, their attire was modest and their manners impeccable. I was
                              both proud and relieved by their wonderful behavior. After such a successful experience, it is very
                              likely I will offer this trip again within the next three or four years. If you would like to know
                              more about our trip, feel free to drop by my room where I have displayed photos.
