1 NEWS FROM THE SAINT HENRY SCHOOL COMMUNITY SUMMER 2010 Saint Henry Families Among the Hardest Hit in Nashville by: Debbie Butner Confusion and disbelief rocked the Saint Henry School Family on Sunday, May 1, 2010, when what has become known as the largest natural disaster in Tennessee history occurred. Statistics are what the experts use to quantify the damage, but tears and heartache are the realities for over twenty-five Saint Henry School families who suffered devastating losses, including the deaths of loved ones. Many more families experienced moderate to severe damage to their homes, possessions, and vehicles. Fifty percent of our families and one-third of our faculty live in the effected areas.

2 SACS Update by: Denise Beaty Saint Henry School is a member of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS) and has in place a school improvement team which continually looks at the various aspects of the education process to ensure that Saint Henry is providing From the Principal s Desk Dear Friends of Saint Henry School, the best quality education possible and meeting the SACS requirements. Four areas were identified by the parents, faculty, and students as areas to assess in the school year. The four areas of focus are: playground improvement, nutrition, resource, and ITBS testing. It is hard to believe we have reached the end of another school year. I believe we heeded and responded well to the voice of the Good Shepherd to Come, Follow Me. The academic year proved again to be a unique experience of our community filled with the spirit of its patron the faithful, generous, and compassionate Saint Henry. The consistent and willing support of the families of Saint Henry Parish and School in time, treasure, and talent was once again manifest in the daily events and activities of our year and I am grateful to all our good stewards! As we close out this Year for Priests, in particular, I am grateful to Father Mike Johnston, our Pastor, and Father Steve Wolf, our Associate Pastor, for their pastoral care of the faculty, staff, and children of Saint Henry School and for their love of the priesthood for the last 39 years and 13 years respectively! Also, I am appreciative of our faculty and staff for their joyful spirit, fidelity, and love of our children. Let us cherish the precious gift that is Saint Henry and the many ways God is using the Saint Henry community for His good. As Saint Henry School strives to be a God Enlighten Space, it is important to take time to reflect on the many ways God is active in our living mission of forming students in academic integrity, prayer, and service to others. God reveals to us through the circumstances of daily life that He is working through us in a supernatural way, and that we are a part of something much larger than ourselves. This year provided ample opportunity for the Saint Henry Tiger spirit to increase in its capacity to grow closer to God and one another. This edition of the Pinnacle affords us the opportunity to highlight a few of these moments. Let us keep our eyes fixed on the exciting future of Saint Henry School and reflect often on the treasure it is to so many. The buildings and other material items are only a vehicle to help us achieve the real goal to teach Christ. All the meetings, lessons, equipment, books, technology, etc ought to be directed toward this end. It is a good time to be a Saint Henry Tiger!! Thank you for helping us make a difference in the lives of our children. They are the reason we do what we do! n Sister Ann Hyacinth, O.P. Mission Statement Saint Henry Catholic School strives to build God s kingdom through prayer, academic integrity, and service to others. School Motto Educating for Life, Guided by Christ Saint Henry Families Among the Hardest Hit in Nashville Continued on page 1 Father Mike led the administration in a quick response to the needs of our children of Saint Henry School. Home and School quickly collected uniforms and school supplies to replace those lost in the flood. As the flood waters receded, neighbors, friends, parish members, and strangers all pitched in to tear out walls, rip up flooring, and dry out buildings. While the overwhelming support has been a blessing to our families in need, this is The playground improvement plan is complete for now. Phase I of this plan included updating the playground equipment and play area which was completed last summer. The students have been very pleased with the addition of more swings, a larger area for play, and new play sets. Other recommendations for the playground are included in Phase II, which will be used in the future as needed. Nutrition is being addressed with changes in our lunch menu. The cafeteria staff is doing a great job offering our students fresh fruits and vegetables everyday. During the last two months of school the cafeteria tried some new menu items to increase the variety offered to the students. Good nutrition begins at home and Saint Henry will encourage the parents to offer healthy choices at home so that the students will make healthy choices an everyday habit. Saint Henry is also looking into an automated payment plan for daily lunches. If it is feasible, the plan will be in place next year. ITBS testing is a tool used by Saint Henry to assess the progress of the students on a national level. The committee is currently focusing on math, language arts, and the transition from elementary school to high school. The plan also includes education for parents about the scores of the ITBS testing to teach the parents how these scores can be used as one tool to help identify each student s strengths and/or weaknesses. Resource improvement is addressing the need for advanced students in specific areas. The committee is looking at offering enrichment classes for advanced students. One program they are looking into is Science Olympiad. Students would be given a challenge and asked to use their problem-solving skills to come up with a solution. This program would allow our students to compete with students from other schools in our area. n only the beginning of a long arduous journey of recovery. Continuing financial, physical, and spiritual commitments from St. Henry Parish and the community at large are vital for the successful recovery of our families. If you are in a position to contribute time, talent, or treasure (gift cards and/or checks made payable to Saint Henry flood assistance) to those affected by the flood, please contact Lynette Bailey at Saint Henry School by calling n 2 Pinnacle Summer 2010
3 Focus on Faculty by: Kerry Carden There will be three new faces at Saint Henry School this fall as teachers Lucy Armour and Debbie Beck and cafeteria manager Brenda Jackson are retiring at the end of the school year. Mrs. Beck has spent her entire 20-year teaching career at Saint Henry. She and fellow kindergarten teacher Sally Luton started the same year, with Dolly Millican joining them two years later. They have worked together for 18 years, the longest length of time three teachers have done so in any grade. Debbie intends to volunteer more, possibly at Vanderbilt Children s Hospital, and will continue to help out at Saint Henry. I hope to be up here a lot. Basically I want to do what I m doing, but on my own schedule. She and her husband Warren have three children: David, 29; Jennifer, 26; and Kathleen, 22. David works for the Informatics Center at Vanderbilt University Center Hospital. Jennifer is a 2nd grade teacher at Kirkpatrick Elementary in East Nashville and Kathleen is a nursing student at Aquinas College. Mrs. Armour has taught 3rd grade at Saint Henry for 24 years. She won t be the only Armour leaving teaching at the end of the school year; her husband Bob, a 5th grade teacher at Lipscomb Elementary School in Brentwood, is also retiring. The two plan on doing things they ve not had time to do. There are a whole bunch of things you talk about and think someday, maybe, Lucy said. She hopes to devote more time to her love of history and Debbie Beck Lucy Armour Brenda Jackson wants to volunteer, exercise and attend daily Mass more often. She also has always wanted to travel to the Eastern Seaboard to see the change of seasons. In addition, they will be able to spend more time with their six grandchildren. Her daughter, Kathleen Spitzer, has four children, two of whom attend St. Matthews School. Her son John, who owns the Three Stones Pub in Bellevue, has a 2-year-old son. Her oldest son Jim is married and has a 1-year-old son in Cleveland, Ohio. Mrs. Jackson will leave after 36 years at the school. She said she came to Saint Henry looking for something to do while sons Todd and Wade, now 42 and 39, were in Saint Henry School and Bellevue Presbyterian Church s mother s day out program. I can do anything, Brenda recalled telling thenpastor Monsignor George Rohling, who later hired her. She plans to spend more time at a house she and her husband, Jerry, own at Kentucky Lake in Waverly. Any time I m not at school I m at the lake, Brenda said. She enjoys driving her fourwheeler and riding her jet ski there and also fishing and going on sunset boat rides. While she said it s time for her to retire, Brenda will visit the school from time to time or help out when needed. It s a big change for me...it s been a part of my life. I ll miss those kids, she said. 7th Grade Talent Search Continued on page 1 take above-level collegeentrance exams (SAT or ACT) to learn more about their abilities.

4 SHS Witnesses of the Week Saint Henry School began recognizing a Witness of the Week during the school year. The students listed below have been acknowledged for exhibiting examples of Christlike behavior among the student body since January One student from Pre-K through 4th and one student from 5th through 8th are selected each week. Mrs. Braniff s 8th grade class Mrs. Smith s 8th grade class Sister Maria Kolbe s 8th grade class Matt Chandler Rebecca Clark Charles Hilgendorf Jim Killian John Ledford Dylan Leifheit Christina Long Christian Martucci Drew Perenich Olivia Prentice Juan Jose Rodriguez Maurice Safar Nick Sedita Owen Strickmaker Lowry Wilson Kade Foster Gracie Norfleet Evan Brown John Armbruster Hannah Knoch Jack Clarke Tamara Rogers Parker Erdman Alex Ledford Grace Brink Cally Link Justin Williams As of May 18, 2010 Passion Play by: Kerry Carden Eighth graders at Saint Henry School celebrated Holy Week by putting on a Passion Play for students and parents the Tuesday before Easter. Donna Braniff, 8th grade English and Literature teacher, said this is the third year she, 7th and 8th grade Social Studies teacher Helen Smith, and 7th and 8th grade Religion teacher Sister Maria Kolbe (this is sister s first year) have organized the play. Instead of re-enacting the Passion of Christ the students did tableaus of the 14 Stations of the Cross. At each station one person described the scene and told how that scene relates to situations a child faces today. Then a student choir sang one of the songs that had been selected by Sister Maria Kolbe. I think the kids like it, I really do, Braniff said. It s more of a prayer to the school, the community and the parish. Braniff said she and the other teachers first picked Jesus and Mary, who this year were Lowry Wilson and Connor Hoback. Then they picked those who would be handling the props: Mark Carden, Mary Kathryn Hagey, Emily Moseley, and Alec Schwab. After that they prayed about which children best fit the rest of the play s roles and needs and choose accordingly. In addition to Wilson and Hoback, 8th graders chosen for parts were Andrew Cox as Pontius Pilate; Noah Cordell, Dennis Donnelly, Woody Dunne, Nick Gould, Ben Holzmer and Michael Vetter as guards; Rachel Rayhab and Tess Tomes as servants; Dennis Hilgendorf as John; Emma Sampson as Mary Magdalene; Sarah Gromos as Mary of Clopas; Luke Foreman as Simon; Jason Saint Henry School 8th graders Lowry Wilson played Jesus and Michael Vetter a guard in the school's Passion Play the Tuesday of Holy Week.

Ryan Students Working Together in Celebration of Earthday. On April 21, 2010, the seventh grade students from Saint Henry School in Nashville, TN, spent a day at Camp Marymount in Fairview, TN, conducting water quality chemical tests, macroinvertebrate counts, plant identification, animal tracking, and exploring the history of Camp Marymount in celebration of Earth Day which was on April 22. Tenth through twelfth grade biology students from the three area Catholic high schools joined together to mentor Saint Henry students in conducting all of the experiments. This setup provided the seventh grade students an opportunity to conduct real field science, while providing the high school students an opportunity to utilize leadership skills and share their scientific knowledge with the younger students, utilizing the outdoor resources available at Camp Marymount as a science classroom. n 4 Pinnacle Summer 2010
5 Music Man by: Kerry Carden The sound of 76 trombones was heard throughout Saint Henry s School March 3-6, as the 6th, 7th, and 8th graders put on The Music Man Jr. The Music Man is about a con man who plans to swindle the inhabitants of a small town but instead falls in love with the local librarian. School Drama Coordinator Julie Gild, who also directed last year s musical Annie Jr., said junior productions are shortened versions of the originals. In addition, their music scores are changed to a key better suited to young voices. She chose The Music Man Jr. because it has a large cast. I just figured if I do a musical there were more ways to get more kids involved. Another one of her goals was to teach the children how to put on a production. My objective is not to put on a show, she said. The objective is to teach them what is involved in putting on a show as professionally as possible. They not only acted and sang but also worked behind the scenes as stage managers and technicians. Adults helping were Carol Ann Jones, Marie Smith, and faculty member Rachel Burkey. Julie wasn t worried she would be unable to find enough students who could sing and act, saying, There is talent here that I didn t know was here. Those who were chosen at tryouts at the end of last October and beginning of November did have to work hard. They practiced until the Thanksgiving and Christmas breaks and up to three days a week in January and February. There were five shows: two school performances, two evening performances and a Saturday matinee. Tryouts were open to 6th, 7th, and 8th graders because last year Julie started a group at school, the St. Genesian s Honor Society which is tied to the National Thespian Society. (St. Genesius is the patron saint of actors) Members earn points by participating in middle school drama productions that they can take with them to high school thespian societies. She has already chosen next spring s musical but would only say it is a very different show than Annie Jr. and The Music Man Jr. and that it will be a great growth experience for those involved. Saint Henry School students who were in the play are Griffin Dobson as Harold Hill, the con man; Maddie Sampson as Marian Paroo, the librarian; Woody Dunn as Hill s old friend Marcellus Washburn; Lowry Wilson as the mayor; Rachel Rayhab as the mayor s wife; Rachel Henwood as Marian s mother; and Nolan Spear as Marian s brother. Also cast were: Andrew Cox, Luke Foreman, Matthew Remke and William Webb as the school board; Monica Ann Coode, Kate Hornberger, Ray Rouillier and Emma Sampson, along with Haley Bain, Rebecca Clark, Natalie Davis, Grace Gallagher, Jenna Sullivan, Veronica Tanner, Caroline Watkins and Annelise Yackow, as the town gossips; Colin Carswell as a traveling salesman; Nicholas Gould as a boy from the wrong side of the tracks dating the mayor s daughter, Rebecca Zimberg; Cowden Clarke as the constable; Torie Correa as Marian s piano student; and Kristin Farr as the mayor s youngest daughter. Child band members were Alex Ariola, Addison Beaver, Maddie Brocato, Virginia Conners, Katherine Coode, Kimberly Cunningham, Nicholas Dreher, Mary Kathryn Hagey, Savannah Hallmark, Abbey Pantoja, Stefi Raymond, Bitsy Seethaler, Emma Terry, and Lauren Wigginton. John Hagey was student stage manager and Tess Tomes student director. Technicians were Kate Allocco, Grace Ann Borum, Peter Connor, Noah and Reilly Cordell, Daria Foster, Will Gregory, Rob Heins, Nick Mammarelli, Jackson Reese, Grace and Mark Roushdi, Sara Saavedra, John Thielke, Cole Thomson, and Christian Wade. n SHS Forensics Program continues to grow stronger by: Tonya McCulla One misconception that needs to be clarified is Saint Henry Forensics isn t SCI for kids. It is a competitive drama program that is available to all students in grades 3rd 8th. Julie Gild is the program director for Forensics as well as the Drama program. The Forensics program at Saint Henry School is a two prong program. One prong is held during the school day for 3rd 8th graders. Some teachers require their students to participate and this section of the program is held during the fall, says Julie. The second prong is the competitive Diocesan Forensics Team which begins late fall to early spring and is held on six to seven Saturdays. Students competing in this program are in 5th 8th grade. For this students meet after school to practice and get feedback. While on the Diocesan team we ascertain the kids strengths to help them narrow their skill, says Julie. Students are able to choose between poetry/prose (humorous or dramatic), pan mime/duet/duet acting, auditor duet improve, original oratory, and/or act from a play. I am so proud of these students we (SHS) have a smaller team than some schools and we place consistently. This is a huge accomplishment the students should be proud of. Mrs. Gild has been leading the students in Forensics for the past two years. Before that time SHS forensics had been on a hiatus for at least 5 years from competition. The SHS Forensics program has also performed in the community. The students really enjoyed taking their program to Westmeade Place. A trip to an area preschool had to be postponed due to cold season. Great job Tigers; keep up the hard work! n Pinnacle Summer

8 Saint Henry Honors Grandparents with a Performance of All God s Creatures by: Tracie O Dwyer The annual Grandparents Day at Saint Henry School is traditionally a big event, and this year was no exception. The gym was packed with honored guests who were treated to animal-themed songs by grades K through 8, 5th grade hand bells, performances by the 5th, 6th, and 7th / 8th grade bands, and dramatic transitions by the Diocesan Forensics Team. Sister Ann Hyacinth welcomed grandparents and special friends to the 9:00 program, then Father Mike Johnston led the opening prayer. The students put on a great show featuring fun by: Tracie O Dwyer 8 Pinnacle Summer 2010 favorites such as Rockin Robin, The Tiger Sleeps Tonight, and Hound Dog. When the program ended, grandparents and friends went to their loved ones classrooms for refreshments and to meet the children s teachers. Grandparents Day is a huge celebration every year because grandparents travel from all across Tennessee, Kentucky, Mississippi, and other states to attend this special event. I would not miss During each annual Catholic Schools Week, the students, faculty, and staff of Saint Henry pause to show their appreciation for all the people in our Catholic school, and to celebrate our faith, which forms the foundation of Catholic education. Beginning on Sunday, January 31st, the school community showed its appreciation for the Parish. They honored parents on Monday, students on Tuesday, teachers on Wednesday, and service to others in the community on Thursday. To cap off the week, Friday, February 5th was all about our faith and celebrating The Year for Priests. The theme for this year is Come, Follow Me. Students began preparing for Friday s Faith Rally by meeting in small faith groups on Wednesday and Thursday. Under the direction of Sister Maria Kolbe, 8th graders led each faith community in activities based on Scripture stories and the lives and teaching of Saints. Then on Friday morning, the whole school arrived wearing the black and gold t-shirts designed for this year s celebration. The shirts honor the Pastors and Associate Pastors who have shepherded the Saint Henry flock since its beginning in 1954, by listing it, stated Grandmother and Saint Henry Parishioner Jo Clyde; the joy of being a grandparent is in sharing such things. She and her husband Jim have attended every Grandparents Day for the last 8 years to share this rewarding time with granddaughters Rebecca (grade 8), Natalie (grade 6), and Olivia (grade 1). Other grandparents experienced the event for the first time this year, as they came to hear their Kindergarteners sing, or visit their Pre-Ker s classroom. Still others have been attending for over a decade. Pat and Bob Beaver first attended Grandparents Day 10 each priest from Father Joseph Siener to Fathers Mike Johnston and Steve Wolf. The day began with a school-wide Mass followed by Adoration, which continued in the gym throughout the day. Student faith groups continued their meetings in their classrooms, returning to the gym at different intervals to spend time with Christ in the Eucharist. Their experience was enriched with praise and years ago to see grandsons Spencer and Hal. It s grown a lot! the couple commented as they attended this year to be with their 8th grade granddaughter, Addison. The students of Saint Henry are so thankful for all of their grandparents and special friends who were able to enjoy this special day with them and for those who were unable to attend. God bless you all. n Saint Henry Caps off Catholic Schools Week with a Celebration of Faith worship music, and 8th graders guided them in meditation on the Blessed Sacrament. Finally, the whole school community gathered in the gym once more to enjoy a closer experience with Our Lord in the Eucharist: Father Mike Johnston lead a procession of the Blessed Sacrament before the students as he circled the gym and then led them to the church for Benediction. With this final blessing, our Pastor brought to a close a school day with no books and no tests, a day of celebration that brought the students closer to God and highlighted the role of faith in each and every day at Saint Henry School. n
9 Sixth Grade tours Country Music Hall of Fame by: Rachel Burkey, 6th-8th Music Teacher his past March, the entire Tsixth grade class traveled to the Country Music Hall of Fame for a tour of the museum s highlights and a special oneon-one music session with one of Music City s songwriters, Gary Culley. Miss Burkey s sixth grade music classes began preparing for this trip back in January when they began the Country Music Hall of Fame s Words & Music program, which consists of a step-by-step guide of the lyric-writing process. Following in-depth discussion of how a song is written, the students all were given the option to create their own lyrics that would then be forwarded on to a local songwriter who would put many of these songs to music. Nolan Spear, a student in Mrs. Forte s class, wrote a song entitled, Peace. It was inspired by the world of today and how everyone wants peace but can t get it. After three months of learning and perfecting their lyrics, four of the 6th graders saw all of their hard work realized. Songs by Katherine by: Rhea Forte lease, may we go to the Pnursing home? I promised a lady I d be back to visit. Do we get to visit people in the Cloister today? Can we visit the lady who has the dog Rhett Butler? May I work in after care today? Each month the Saint Henry Children of Mary has been meeting for the last 11 years as a prayer and service organization under the loving guidance of our Blessed Mother. Questions and comments such as these are most common as the children finish Coode, Maria Marchetti, Bitsy Seethaler, and Hanna Von Haefen were selected by local songwriter, Gary Culley, and performed in an intimate surrounding at the museum. Kimberly Cunningham was very impressed by the performance and program because she realized that you don t have to be a big star to write a great song. The students enjoyed the opportunity to hear their songs put to music and many also developed a stronger appreciation for one of the most challenging, yet sought-after professions in Nashville. Bitsy Seethaler noted that you don t just write a song and put music to it; you have to put a lot of thought into it. n Children of Mary the prayers of the Legion of Mary and divide into groups to begin their service work. With bright smiles and tremendous enthusiasm, they head to the many on-campus possibilities to serve others. Whether it is West Meade Place, the Cloister, or the many opportunities within the school, each student chooses a means of being Jesus to others. As those who have performed service work know, it is addicting. The children love knowing they have made a difference in someone s day and look forward to their next Continued on page 10 Box Tops For Education by: Lori Kroese, Coordinator Clip More Box Tops says Mrs. Wesley s first grade class during their ice cream sundae party for bringing in the most Box Tops during one of the class contests this year. Clipping box tops might very well be one of our easiest fundraisers. And it is free! There are so many participating products that families already purchase that the task is just about collecting them before they make it in the trash. We began the school year with a summer baggie program in the hope of reminding families to keep clipping. Each Saint Henry School family received a baggie with the idea of hanging it in your pantry at home. The Church was also gracious enough to allow us to pass out baggies to our fellow parishioners. We realize that getting Saint Henry Church members to help us would be of great benefit. The program proved to be a great success, so it is planned for this year as well. During the school year, we executed three different class contest periods which is a lot of fun for the students. They have the ability to win different class parties. The teachers have been a wonderful support system and helped to encourage competition in clipping. During the school year, we raised just over $2,800 from Box Tops. At this writing, we are finishing our last class contest. We estimate that our totals this year will exceed this amount. This is very significant for one main reason. In the year, Target did a very large bonus Box Tops program which they did not do this school year. This resulted in hundreds of more dollars in Box Tops than we had the opportunity to earn this year. So we have indeed increased our participation and success in Our earnings from Box Tops have helped with the recent and future planned playground renovations, so we can see some of our tangible results just outside the windows. Box Tops have continued to add participating products to their list including Avery Office supplies. So keep an eye out at your offices too for those cute little Box Tops. Parents, grandparents, friends, and neighbors - keep clipping and thank you to everyone for your support. n Pinnacle Summer
10 SHS Winter / Spring Sports by: Jeremy Dison What does Saint Henry School and the state of Kentucky have in common? Well, it sure isn t the rain; it s that we both love our basketball! This year was no exception as SHS represented 24 teams in the Parochial League. Ten of those teams were made up of 3rd and 4th graders playing in the Diocesan Parochial League. While the 3rd and 4th grade division traditionally plays most of their games in the smaller gyms throughout the Diocese, we saw many of our young Tigers play here at home in the 'Big Gym' in 2010 and we loved watching them scoot up and down the court. Saint Henry has always provided an example for extra playing time for all in the younger divisions and it seems as though the rest of the Parochial League is following suit. Many of the schools are now entering multiple teams into the league which is a good sign for the future of Diocesan sports. As always, we would like to thank the many coaches that are able to volunteer their time for our recreational teams. It s their time and talents that make great experiences for our children. For the competitive ages Children of Mary Varsity girls basketball team with coach s Tom Bossung and Tim Hoots Continued on page 9 monthly meeting. Three Saint Henry teachers are the moderators for the Children of Mary. Watching our students find true joy by doing for others in the name of Jesus and Mary is magic for us, commented one of the moderators. Former members of the Children of Mary have returned and told their moderators that their involvement at Saint Henry in the Children of Mary impacted some of their high school choices to become involved with service work. It is one of the many extra-curricular activities the students of Saint Henry may choose to become involved in and one more means of growing in their faith and personal relationship with God. n in basketball, our Saint Henry varsity girls once again defended their title in the league and in the Parochial Tournament. The Lady Tigers defeated St. Joseph s School in the final game to take home the trophy. Coach Tom Bossung and assistant Tim Shooter Hoots will look to keep the streak alive again next year. Way to go girls!!! On the boys competitive side, much improvement was shown this year. Coach Marcelo Ariola and assistant Mark Paslick helped guide the Tigers to a 3rd place finish in the league. I am sure we will see them in the title game next year. Good job guys! As the spring sport season came upon us, so did a blossoming golf program. Under the guidance of John Wilson, the Saint Henry competitive Division I golf team also emerged and improved week to week. Their team placed 3rd in the league and is only going to get better next year. We are extremely proud of the direction that our golf program is heading. Saint Henry also provides another opportunity for students to participate in a golf league that isn t as competitive. These students are in Division II and are learning the rules and etiquette of golf. One of those players was Karrah Keaton who finished second individually. All of the DII players did wonderful this year playing at the Vinny Links and special thanks goes out to all of our moms and dads who were available to caddy and marshall the course. Great job and keep practicing! Spring also brings us parochial volleyball. Our program is under the guidance of Diane Bledsoe who does a tremendous job organizing all of our volleyball teams and also coaching our varsity girls. Their varsity team just missed out on the regular season title but pulled out a tournament championship over a seasoned St. Bernard team. We are very proud of all of our Varsity and JV girls that improved so much in such a short period of time. Both JV teams finished well with trips to their title and consolations games as well. Mrs. Bledsoe s program is poised to keep our teams on top of the parochial volleyball world for a long time to come. Finally, our soccer season was another in a long line of success. We are truly blessed to provide our students with the quality of soccer coaches at SHS. Saint Henry provided the parochial league with an amazing 6 teams this year and each of those teams were guided by tremendous parent leaders. They included: Mark Hoback, Ray Brocato, Mark Donlon, Gerry Armbruster, Dan Strebel, and Kathy Moseley. Our four 5th and 6th grade teams (2 boys & 2 girls) received great instruction, had lots of fun, learned about teamwork, and won lots of games. Success at this level is only reflected in the amount of kids that return to play the following year and by our numbers..something really good is happening. Great job everybody! In the Jr. High division, SHS entered TWO varsity teams into the league. Coach Strebel s varsity team ran through the league for an amazing undefeated regular season title but lost early in the year-end tournament. That is when Coach Moseley s varsity team (anchored by a host of amazing 8th grade girls) picked up steam and marched to the tourney championship game. Pretty amazing stuff when BOTH of our teams are able to compete at the highest level. We are very proud of them and look forward to playing our best again next year. Go Tigers! n 10 Pinnacle Summer 2010
11 Home and School News by: Beth Holzapfel & Sara Beth Schwab, Co-presidents The beginning of 2010 was off to a running start with auction preparations for our early auction date of February 7th. The annual auction/dinner themed Boots, Biscuits and Bluegrass, was held at The Loveless Barn for the first time and was a huge success. Everyone showed up in their country best! There was a record attendance, phenomenal auction items, and the auctioneers Marty Blair and John Gromos were fabulous and entertaining! We were lucky to have Big Nose Kate play live music for us, and if you missed it, they were a huge hit! From 6pm to 12am Saint Henry supporters shopped, ate, and danced the night away! Thank you to the patrons, sponsors, auction committees, and all volunteers who made the evening a wonderful success: to raise $50,000 in this economic climate was a true show of support for Saint Henry School. Principal for a Day Sister Ann Hyacinth, Principal, and 2nd grader Brennan Roach, Principal for a Day, begin the day with morning prayers and announcements. Brennan s grandparents won him this title at the Home and School auction. Mr. Roach gave the students an out-of-uniform day and an ice cream sandwich treat. We would like to thank ALL of our volunteers for this year. The following committees made our year run smoothly. Between welcoming new students and families to hosting Open Houses, the Welcoming Committee did an excellent job. The Hospitality Committee so generously provided luncheons for our faculty and staff. Family Faith Nights again gave us a wonderful opportunity to come together for food and faith. The Spirit Shop Committee was on top of ordering cool Tiger gear and having spirit shop sales. Your hard work and dedication is a tribute to Saint Henry School and Parish. The Room mothers are a committee who work year round from helping with school parties to obtaining Confirmation by: Sister Maria Kolbe, Jr. High Religion Teacher After months of preparation, prayer, and service, the 8th grade students of Saint Henry School received the sacrament of Confirmation on February 7th, Confirmation is the last of the Sacraments of Initiation that our students receive. The other two are Baptism and Holy Communion. Upon completing the Sacraments of Initiation, the person becomes a full adult member of the Catholic Church and receives an increasing measure of the Divine life. The eighth graders were required to perform 15 hours of volunteer work in response to the Christian call to serve. Their volunteering incorporated many avenues of service from babysitting siblings and mowing a neighbor s lawn without getting paid, to working with Room at the Inn and auction items made by the students. Also to our many silent volunteers, you know who you are, thank you!!!! A special note of thanks to Dawn Cummings who chaired the Cookie Dough sales, Dave Weil and Mary Beth Brocato who chaired the 5k, Lisa Spear and Mary Beth Brocato for the patron party, and Susan Liberatore who co-chaired the auction. All of these events were successful because of you and your committees! It has been an honor to serve the parents and staff at SHS as Home & School Presidents. It was also an honor to work with our H&S officers who tirelessly helped with every event. As the year comes to a close, we are helping to prepare for the upcoming 2010/2011 school year. volunteering at Camp Marymount. The service hours enabled the students to give themselves to their community in a selfless way. The students also studied extensively about the sacrament of Confirmation in Religion class. They learned about the effects of Confirmation, the history and origin of the sacrament, its close connection to Baptism, the obligations of a confirmed Catholic, choosing a Confirmation saint, how to live by the Spirit, and many other aspects of Confirmation. Preparation through prayer was also very important. The week before Confirmation, the students participated in a Confirmation retreat at the St. Cecilia Motherhouse. The retreat lasted all day and included the sacrament of Confession, Mass, and talks given by St. Cecilia, Fr. Ryan, and Aquinas College students. They also participated in personal and Welcome Committee: Robyn Spychalski and Christine Morrow Hospitality Committee: Marie Smith and Dina Kraus Spirit Shop: Elizabeth Wilson and Robin Meadows Family Faith Night: Tony Roushdi Officers of Home & School Information Coordinator: Diane Bledsoe Secretary: Anna Brown Treasurer: Linda Roach Co-Presidents: Sara Beth Schwab and Beth Holzapfel n group prayer, activities relating to Confirmation, and enjoyed time recreating outside. The day of Confirmation was an exciting day for the students, their family and friends, and those who helped them to prepare for this important event. The students outward formal appearance reflected their inner holiness and beauty. After they received the sacrament, many students were beaming because they knew that they had a powerful encounter with God. Later reflecting on receiving Confirmation one student said, This sacrament will change my life. I am so happy to be called to live a life of following the Holy Spirit through the graces I received at Confirmation. Let us continue to pray for all the eighth grade students of Saint Henry School, that they will use the gifts of faith they received at SHS to live lives of holiness and service. n Pinnacle Summer

This is an initiative not funded by the U.S. military, but one that is service personnel driven. Saint Henry School became involved when Anna Wagner, mother to Jacob, 3rd grade, heard about this effort from friend Sgt. Melvin Brown, Jr., currently serving in Iraq with his reserve unit. Jacob attends karate school, and the instructor, Mr. Brown was preparing to go to Iraq. This effort helps the troops gain valuable trust of the Iraqi people and may open the door for friendly exchange. This interaction is very important for the safety of the troops. It may reveal threats and possible Al-qaeda in the village. We were astounded by the total number of shoes collected, continues Wagner. Shoes ranged in sizes for children to adults and included shoes for all seasons. The collection boxes overflowed! Saint Henry s Children of Mary helped sort and package the shoes in preparation for shipping. Because this isn t organized by the government, there are strict postal guide- lines that stretch out the mailing procedure as well as the delivery. Over 25 packing boxes were filled with at least 15 pairs of shoes per box. We are able to keep up with Sgt. Brown through the internet and friends. He is expecting to return to the U.S. in August. Thank you Saint Henry students for sharing your shoes with the people of Iraq and helping to keep our troops safe. n
