From the Nurse s Office: The end of the school year is a good time to review the TB policy for any school in Hamilton County. We have had several calls from parents wanting to know if their student needs to be tested yearly. The policy is as follows: 1. Any CURRENTTLY ENROLLED student who travels AT ANY TIME to a high-risk country, in a non-tourist capacity, must provide documented evidence of a negative TB test in no less than 60 but no more than 90 days after return. The definition of a non-tourist capacity is staying with family/friends in a private residence or spending most of the travel time in a home or facility where the residents of the foreign country live. A service/mission trip also falls into this category. A list of High-Risk countries can be found on the UA website, student health link, or contact the school nurse. 2. All foreign-born, NEWLY ENROLLED students who have been in the USA for 5 years or less, must provide documented evidence of a negative TB test within 90 days of their first day of enrolment. 3. ANY student with either documented history of TB or positive PPD or blood test and a normal chest X-ray, must provide documented proof of absence of TB symptoms, determined by screening by licensed MD or nurse. Medication Update: A reminder for the school year: The Nurse s office will continue to supply Acetaminophen 325mg tablets and Ibuprofen 200mg tablets to any student that returns a medication form that is signed by a physician and the parent.

5 Cincinnati Junior Rowing Club UA students are eligible to compete on a crew team through Cincinnati Junior Rowing Club.

This year, three $500 grants were given. Marilyn Herring and Shauna Whelan will be attending the National Council of Teachers of English (NCTE) annual convention in Chicago, Illinois from November 17-20, The convention will bring together over 7,000 language arts educators and will include over 700 presentations on such matters as reading instruction, writing initiatives, literature study, rhetoric, technology, assessment, and professional development. The convention provides the opportunity for attendees to bring the latest methodologies and philosophies back to their classrooms and the school community. Kelly Stiles will be attending the 9th-annual "Teaching History with Technology Workshop" at Harvard University at the end of June. It is an intensive three-day hands-on opportunity for history and social studies educators to explore practical ways to use technology to enrich the history curriculum and engage students. The workshop explores innovative ideas, effective techniques, and ready-made plans for incorporating Webbased resources, desktop software packages and new and emerging technologies into classroom instruction of history.

6 SAT and ACT Test-Prep at Ursuline for the Class of 2013 We will once again be offering Test-Prep Classes for both the SAT and ACT college entrance exams. FYI: Please keep in mind that the math portion of the SAT includes Algebra I, Geometry and Algebra II. The math portion of the ACT includes Algebra I, Geometry, Algebra II, and some trigonometric concepts covered in Pre-calculus (also taught in prep course). We suggest that parents be mindful of this when scheduling college entrance exams. The first SAT class will begin the week of November 14, The ACT class will begin the week following January exams. Both classes will be repeated in the spring of More information and registration forms for these classes will be available in the fall. ACT and SAT Prep Summer Class at UA Juniors [Soon-to-be-Seniors] Class of 2012: Are you less than satisfied with your results on the ACT or SAT? Did you just find out that the university you would like to attend requires higher test scores than you earned? Did you feel less than well-prepared to take either the ACT or SAT last year? Or, if you could raise your score, would you then be eligible for more scholarship funds or admittance to a more selective school or elite program within the university you have chosen? If you answered yes to any of these questions, then you would be a good candidate for the Improve Your Score class to be held later this summer at Ursuline Academy. The class will be for incoming seniors only, and will focus on improving the parts of the ACT or SAT test you need to reach your goals. This test-prep class will be kept small to focus on individualized instruction. Enrolled students should bring former test results to class for specific evaluation. The class is six sessions long, beginning August 11, and ending August 18. Space will be limited. A registration form is available in the main office or the guidance office. Questions can be directed to Mrs. Kahan,

Ursuline graduates receive scholarships and special awards Cincinnati, OH May 26, 2011: Ursuline Academy celebrated its 162 seniors as they received their diplomas at the school's commencement exercises on May 24 in the school gymnasium. The school congratulates the entire Class of 2011 for their spirit, service and scholarships. Their efforts were rewarded this year with 85% of the class earning more than $19 million in college scholarships. In addition, there were several special awards given at the ceremony. The Senior Scholar Awards (the top three seniors in the class) were awarded to Claire Barrett of Madeira, Carolyn Johnson of Colerain, and Jacqueline Ruggiero of Blue Ash. The Archbishop McNicholas Memorial Gold Medal Award Outstanding Girl of the Year - was awarded to Claire Barrett for her scholastic achievement, service to others and Christian ideals; the Christian Leadership Award, which is given to a graduate who demonstrates Gospel values in her personal

10 and school community life, was awarded to Michelle Spotts of Loveland; and the Centennial Spirit Award, which is given to a graduate who best exemplifies the spirit of Ursuline with her generosity, service, attitude and overall demeanor, was awarded to Komal Safdar of Mason.

Two graduates receive Linda Vester Ivy League Scholarships Two members of the Class of 2011 have joined the ranks of Ursuline alumnae who will attend Ivy League colleges with financial assistance from the Linda Vester Ivy League Scholarships. Lynessa McGee will attend Princeton and Ellie Robertson will attend Columbia. The Linda Vester Ivy League Scholarship Program was made possible through the generosity of Linda Vester Greenberg 83 and her husband Glenn Greenberg. The purpose of this program is to encourage qualified Ursuline Academy of Cincinnati students to attend Ivy League colleges. The idea for the scholarship came from Linda s experiences as a student at Ursuline Academy when she learned how financially prohibitive it was for qualified students to attend Ivy League colleges. The scholarship program has been in place since After the committee of administrators and counselors reviews applications and makes a recommendation the graduate is awarded $15,000 per year for four years of undergraduate Ivy League study. The donor s hope is that such scholarships will enable Ursuline graduates to attend Ivy League colleges or universities if by reason of financial limitations they would otherwise be forced to choose a school closer to home and/or of lesser academic standards.
