1 St Paul s High School Home of the Crusaders February 2008 St Paul s High School Mission Statement: St Paul s High School is missioned by the Canadian Jesuits to educate students as whole persons to become men for others and so assist the Church in building the Kingdom of God FROM THE PRESIDENT Dear Parents and Student Today is the second last day of exams as I sit writing this note to you, the first for I hope everyone had a holy Christmas and that you also enjoyed much good food and restful family time. As the year begins there is much excitement in the air of things to come. The Advancement Office, for example, is making great strides in its multi-varied areas of school life. In March, Mrs Sandy Russell, whom many of your know as the friendly voice in the Advancement Office and the one who is always there to answer questions regarding all things alumni and fundraising, will retire from St Paul s. I will write more on Sandy s transition in upcoming issues. To replace Sandy I have hired a young man from Edmonton, Mr Peter Gulka. Peter will move his wife and three children to Winnipeg and begin work at St Paul s 25 March. Peter is very much looking forward to moving to Winnipeg and working with us and becoming part of our community. Peter brings a depth of skill with The Raiser s Edge, fundraising and various other talents to the Advancement Office which will help us further our goals for the future. Welcome Mr Gulka! I would also like to explain the process and successful candidate for the position of Vice Principal Students. After a collaborative process that involved the entire staff providing me with their thoughts about the position of VPS, Mr Lussier formed an interview committee comprised of himself, Mr Beeston and Mr Chaze (to all of whom I am most grateful). Once interviews were completed, recommendations were made and I had an opportunity to pray over all the worthy candidates, I invited Mr Mike Watson to the position. Mr Watson will replace Mr Alan Carruthers who has served St Paul s as VPS for the past eight years. Many thanks to Mr Alan Carruthers who, I am pleased to announce, will remain at St Paul s and returning to the classroom to teach. Mr Watson will assume the role of VPS as of 1 July A very important note from the Jesuit world is the election of a new Superior General of the Society of Jesus, Very Reverend Adolfo Nicolás. Information about the election and biographical information on the new Fr General can be found online by Googleing General Congregation 35. Fr Nicolás will lead the some Jesuits around the world in new directions some of which will be determined by the work that continues with the General Congregation. Let us Issue 5 1

2 pray for his wise leadership of the Society of Jesus. A Message For All Parents of the Graduating Class of If St Paul s is to continue with the success it has had in the past with Safe Grad, we all have to work together. On 5 February there will be a mandatory information meeting held for all grad parents in the Caf at 7:00pm. Grad ring prices, sub-committees you can sign up for, along with a representative of the Manitoba Liquor Commission who will speak about the law and alcohol will join me for a night of safe planning for a great celebration that will take place in June for your son. See you there. In November we celebrated the life of Grade 11 student, Chris Gyles. The following text is a letter of thanks from Chris parents, Bob and Anne: January 6, 2008 To Father Fogarty, I am writing this letter on behalf of our family to say thank you from the bottom of our hearts for the kindness, caring and strength that we have been given over the last few months since Chris passing. In the dictionary, you will find the meaning for community to be people living in one place, together in harmony. This could not be any truer a statement than for St. Paul s High School. Your community is unbelievable. At our weakest moment, your staff, students and families came together to help us in our need. For this, we will be eternally grateful. When Chris funeral service ended, our family felt a great sense of calm, a sense of peace. This was due to the ability that you and Father Mulvihill and Father Boutilier had to make the service so very personal for everyone who attended. There was no greater tribute for Chris and for our family who miss him so. I d also like to thank the men of St. Paul s, especially Brad Skinner for all they have done to keep Chris memory alive. He will never be truly gone so long as so many hold him close in their hearts. We realize now, more than ever, why it was so important for our family to send Matt/04 and Chris/09 to this caring and supportive community, St. Paul s High School. Our family will be forever indebted to you all. In Our Prayers, The Gyles Family Bob, Anne, Geoff and Matt/04 I would like the Gyles family to know that we continue to pray for them and for all of Chris friends who mourn his passing. Out of love for Chris and for St Paul s High School, the Gyles family have decided to present an award at this year s Grade 11 end of the year ceremonies and next year s graduating ceremonies to a student who meets the criteria set by the family and approved by my office. Moreover, the Gyles and family friends are in the process of starting the Chris Gyles Memorial Bursary. Details on how to participate in honouring Chris memory in this way will soon be on our website. A Note For the Grade 9 Parents On 25 February there we will have a meeting to which you are all strongly encouraged to attend. You may remember my inviting you to this meeting at the closing of The Freshman Retreat. We acknowledge parents as the primary caregivers of their sons. We also care for your sons and want to do our utmost to form them as men who will practice being Men for Others throughout their life. To do this better, we would like to collaborate more with you, the parents. Please mark this date in your book and do your Issue 5 2

3 best to attend. It will be a chance to exchange information and for us to meet with the hope of serving better our families and the community of St Paul s which takes seriously its responsibility to form young men ready to serve the Church and the world. On the Feast of St Lazarus, 17 December, 2007, we unveiled and blessed the Frederick Hart Statue, Christ Rising, in an all-school ceremony in Murray Hall. Immediately following the liturgy at which most of the benefactors were present, the statue was moved to the front foyer. The reason for approaching donors to support this project is to put Christ at the centre of our school and, through prayer and God s grace, at the centre of our heart. We are a Catholic school in the Ignatian tradition (contemplatives in action) but Christ is the reason for it all. My prayer is that the moment in salvation history depicted here of Christ resurrecting will provide many in the years to come with much to contemplate and act upon in the world. If you have not yet seen the statue, please come by and take a moment to reflect. A list of the benefactors and to whom the statue is dedicated will be released in the next edition of the Crusader Magazine and on our website. Let s continue to pray for each other and for the Church. In Christ Alan Fogarty, SJ President FROM THE PRINCIPAL Dear Parents, It was very good to be back into the routine of classes and preparation for exams after the Christmas break. However, as I wrote to you on January 18 th, the normal rhythm of preparation for the Exam Period was interrupted by another anonymous threat written on a locker. I have already written at length about how seriously the school is treating these events so I will not repeat myself here. The Winnipeg Police Service and the school are continuing our investigations. Thankfully the day of the potential threat we almost had a normal attendance day and classes proceeded as usual with, aside from the normal number of regular absences due to illness or appointments, only eight students in the entire school staying home because of the threat. I would like to thank you and your sons for your courageous and generous response to the situation shown by their attendance that day. Thanks to the efforts of the Front Office staff and especially his teachers, your son s First Term Report Card will be mailed out on February 7, The mark reported in each subject represents the average of your son=s performance on the recent examinations and his work over the course of the First Term. Please help your son celebrate his successes and to take stock of his academic standing. If he has not performed as well as he or you expected, it is important for him to be honest with himself and you about what has contributed to him achieving at a level below his potential, and to make changes that will allow him to experience a greater measure of academic success in Second Term. Congratulations to all of the students, who have worked hard, stretched themselves in learning the subject matter and have achieved to their potential Issue 5 3

4 If your son might have squandered his numerous learning opportunities, or has relied on his natural ability to achieve a passable mark well below his potential, the Second Term represents a challenge for him to make the necessary changes so that by the end of the year he will be in a better position than he finds himself in now. It is up to each student to make choices and do his part in his own learning if he hopes to receive the greatest benefit from his St Paul=s education. At the same time, as is emphasized in our Mission and Vision statements, the work of becoming a true Man for Others and seeking the Magis involves going beyond just getting good marks, or developing intellectual competence. If your son has not yet been involved in programs and activities outside of the classroom or found ways to be of service in the school and outside of it, please encourage him to begin doing so now. Other Thanks and Congratulations Definitely the biggest thanks I would like to offer are to Mr Alan Carruthers 88, our VPS whose term in that office comes to an end in June. Mr Carruthers has already given seven and one-half years of yeoman service to St Paul s in this role. Although the school will thank him more formally in June I would like to acknowledge the great work he has done in helping to maintain a safe and respectful school climate, in providing me with invaluable advice, assistance and support whenever possible and in dealing so well with your sons over his time as VPS. Of course, if Mr Carruthers chooses to remain at St Paul s there will be a place on the teaching Faculty for him. We are very fortunate that Mr Mike Watson, who is on a one year leave of absence to pursue other interests, has decided to return to St Paul s and take up the role of VPS. I would like to thank him for taking up the challenge in applying and accepting the position. Mr Watson has large shoes to fill but I believe he has the necessary gifts and talents to thrive in the position and to help maintain the excellent school climate and discipline that the St Paul s community has come to expect. Congratulations to the Varsity Volleyball team on winning their second consecutive Provincial championship! Winning for a second year in a row in such a competitive sport is truly a remarkable accomplishment! Special congratulations to Chris Voth 08 on being named Provincial Tournament MVP to Stefan Balko 09, Chris Komishon 10 on being named Provincial Tournament All-Stars and to Adam Riese 09 on being named Player of the Game in the Final! The Junior Varsity and Grade 9 Volleyball team had a good showing at Provincials but were unable to repeat; they nevertheless had great seasons. Thank you for a wonderful volleyball season. Congratulations and thanks to Varsity Coaches Mr Lloyd Voth and Mr Jeff McMillan, Junior Varsity Coach Mr Jim Slater and moderator Mr Rodger Klopak and Grade 9 Coaches Mr Jason Hurton and Ms Gina Kirkpatrick. I would also like to thank the Maroon and White Society for thier work and dedication in providing leadership under the direction of Mr Chaze, along with the numerous homeroom teachers and Student Council leaders, who together helped to procure over 23 hampers at an average value of about $500 each were delivered to the needy families that we received from the Christmas Cheer Board! In the weeks prior to the delivery of Hampers, our second Mission Week of the year, through the efforts of the Maroon and White Society and your generosity we managed to raise over $700 in support of the fire relief for St Ignatius School. St Ignatius recently opened the newly refurbished wing of the school that was damaged in the fire Issue 5 4

5 last year. Thank you for your generosity in both causes. On behalf of the entire St Paul s staff I would like to thank the Parent Guild for their generosity and hospitality in treating the entire staff to a delicious luncheon just prior to the Christmas Break it was much appreciated by all! I also thank Mrs Geraldine Kwasny, Mrs Eileen and Mr Alan Simeons and the entire Parent Guild for their hard work and support during the Open House. I am also grateful to the numerous staff members who came to answer questions during the evening and to Mr David Chaze for supervising the Maroon and White Society who assisted during the Open House. I would also like to acknowledge the good work of Mr Jason Brennan 88 our Admissions Director. The Open House featured our new Admissions video (produced by alumnus Greg Schmidt 06), was very well attended (over 600 in attendance) and both the regular program and the video seemed to be very well received by those in attendance. Congratulations to Mr Derek Tuba for an excellent Christmas Concert in December at St Jean de Brebeuf Parish! All of the bands performed well and the climax of the night involving a collaboration between the St Paul s Choir under the direction of Mrs Jacqueline Jackson and the concert band, was all very well received by those in attendance. Congratulations to Director Ms Claire Lussier with assistance from Mr Ray Comeault, Producers Mr Brent Kolton 92 and Mr Joel Adair, Project Manager Robert Schmidt 09 (whose significant role in the Production process was left off the program due to an oversight) and all of the Faculty and Staff who assisted in putting on a fabulous performance of The Werewolf s Curse in December. Congratulations as well to all of the actors and Stage Crew, and especially Alex Pulak 08 and Stephen Shannon 08 who shared the award for Best Actor and Tim Sandron 09 for Best Supporting Actor! Thank you to Mr Brian Herosian, father of Addi Herosian 09, for speaking to the entire student body about what it takes to be successful, facing challenges and responding to life s ups and downs in a positive, constructive and growth producing manner. Our athletic teams continue to perform well. The Crusader Hockey team won the Tournament of Champions and has been ranked 1 st overall in the highest division of the Winnipeg High School Hockey League for many weeks. Congratulations to the Hockey team on a very successful tour of Hungary, Slovakia and the Czech Republic over the Christmas Break. My thanks to Head Coach Andrew Harder 93, Assistant Coaches Chad Horrill 93 and Sean Burke 01, and Manager Mr Rolf Krebs for their work with the hockey team. Thank you as well to Head Varsity Coach Jeff Laping 89, JV Coaches Casey Whitfield and Jeff Moffat and Moderator Mr Rob Merello 89, and G9 Coach Dave Owczar for their hard work with the Crusader Basketball teams. All of the teams have shown great promise in league and tournament play. Thank you to Mr Carruthers and Ms Gina Kirkpatrick who are moderating Crusader Wrestling which is being directed by Head Coach Mr Brian Krawetz this year. Finally, thank you to Head Coach Mr Jeff McMillan who is preparing our track athletes for the main part of the Indoor Track season that begins this month. Go Crusaders! Issue 5 5

6 Congratulations to Akshar Patel 08 and Pablo Urbina 08 who have been offered a number of Athletic Scholarships (to play Soccer) by various universities. They will be checking out their options this coming spring and making a decision about which scholarship they will choose to accept! Congratulations to Matt Burns 10 who competed in the Provincial Cross-Country Skiing Sprint Championships and earned a Silver medal! Way to go Matt and good luck in the season with longer upcoming races. Congratulations to Stefan Baluta 09, Matt Semchyshyn 09 and Liam Scanlon 11 for their participation in the St Mary s Academy Production of High School Musical last month. I was not able to attend the production but I understand all three represented St Paul s admirably! Congratulations to Adam Ostanski 10 who qualified for the Manitoba Team in the upcoming Biathlon National Championships! Good luck Adam! Congratulations to Daniel Oberton 10 who defended his St Paul s Chess Championship and thank you for taking on all comers in the recent Open House! Informational Items ATTENTION GRADE 10 AND 11 PARENTS: New Grade 11 and 12 Physical Education Requirements begin next year! As you might have read in the paper, in an effort to improve the health and fitness of Manitoba students, and hopefully in the long run, the health of the Manitoba population, the Department of Education, Citizenship and Youth, has mandated the implementation of new Physical Education Active and Healthy Lifestyle credits in Grades 11 and 12. The Department has mandated that students entering Grade 12 next year will need the Grade 12 Phys Ed credit to graduate and that students entering Grade 11 next year will need both credits to graduate. The Department gives schools the choice of implementing these courses with a minimum of 25% in class time and a maximum of 75% out of class time (students must be involved in a minimum number of hours of vigorous activity through participation in a team sport, a fitness activity or another type of approved activity). I am awaiting proposals from the Physical Education Department on how St Paul s can best implement the new courses and determining the cost of the implementation to the school. It is likely that we will implement the new programs with the 25% In Class (1 class per cycle)/75% Out of Class option. No matter what implementation decision is made it will require an increase in the school s Faculty and result in the budget increase to meet this new requirement. All High Schools in the Province are faced with a similar budgetary issue. In addition, it is important to note that it will require significant parental cooperation and probably some expense for students who are not currently involved in athletic or fitness pursuits who choose to enrol in an outside fitness activity in order to meet the required activity hours. Once the details have been worked out more information will be sent home to explain how we will implement these new courses. Inserts with the First Term Report Card: In addition to your son s Report card, a form for requesting a Parent-Teacher conference and a list of medians (average) for the courses in each Grade will be mailed on February 7, If your son is in G10 or G11, a report on his Issue 5 6

7 progress in the Christian Service Program will also be included. If your son is in G9, an Immunization Permission Form issued by the Manitoba Department of Health is included. If Mr Carruthers is concerned about your son s attendance record, a copy of that record and a letter from him is also included in this mailing. If a copy of your son s attendance record is not included, there is no issue with respect to his attendance. If you have any concerns about your son s attendance record, please contact Mr Carruthers directly. Parent-Teacher Conferences: Parent-Teacher Conferences will be held Thursday February 21 st from 4:00-7:30 pm and Friday February 22 nd from 10:00 4:00 pm. If you wish to discuss your son s progress with his teachers please fill in the form provided and return it to the Front Desk by no later than Thursday February 14 th at 9:00 am. On that date we will take the parental requests, schedule the appointments and return the parent-teacher appointment schedule to the sons of parents who request appointments. Please ask your son for the appointment schedule. Schedule Changes: On Shrove Tuesday, which occurs February 5 th this year, the Parent Guild will once again be hosting the annual Fr Paul Crouch, SJ Memorial Pancake Breakfast. All students in the school will be treated to pancakes and juice during Period One that day! On February 6th, the following day, we will have our annual Ash Wednesday Liturgy and will be following Schedule 4. We have consolidated the Staff Meeting scheduled for February 7 and 12 which means we will have regular classes on Thursday February 7 th and an early dismissal only on February 12 th for a Staff Meeting. There will be no classes on February 15 th when we join with other Catholic School teachers at the annual Catholic Schools In-Service. In addition, there will be no classes on February 22 nd to allow for Parent-Teacher Conferences. Events: St Paul s High School will host its annual Angus Reid Debating Tournament on Tuesday February 12 th in the evening. All are invited to attend this excellent evening of debate put on by the St Paul s Debating Society. If anyone is interested and available to help with judging for the tournament please contact Mr Chaze at the School. Grade 10 Retreat Please remember that the Grade 10 Retreat Program, like the Freshmen Retreat, is a mandatory program for all Grade 10 students. The retreats will take place at Camp Assiniboia on Roblin Boulevard just past Headingly. It will begin after lunch, include an overnight experience and conclude the following day at the end of the school day. The first retreat will involve half of the Grade 10 classes (Classes 10-1, 10-2, and 10-3) and will take place February 19-20, 2008 while the second retreat involving the second half of the Grade 10 classes (Classes 10-4, 10-5 and 10-6) is scheduled on March 3-4, Please make sure you clear your son s evening calendar on the applicable dates. A Parent Option Evening will take place in the evening on Tuesday February 25, 2008 and is organized by our Counselling Department to explain student course options. All parents of returning students are invited and encouraged to attend Issue 5 7

8 IMPORTANT NOTICE FOR GRADE 9 PARENTS: Important Meeting for Parents of Grade 9 Students Parent-School Collaboration Monday February 25 th at 7:00 pm Murray Hall Course Option Information Session to follow. As you know, at St Paul s we affirm the significance of our students parents as their primary educators. Given the importance of parents in their son s education and formation, we believe it is important that parents understand what we are trying to accomplish at St Paul s in our education program. We believe that we can improve on the collaboration and partnership in educating your sons while they are at St Paul s High School. For this reason, Fr Fogarty and I have decided to ask all parents of Grade 9 students who plan on returning to St Paul s next year to attend an important meeting prior to the presentation on course options organized by the Counselling Department. As Fr Fogarty mentioned at the conclusion of the Freshman Retreat, we believe it is important that we continue the parent orientation process begun in September by requesting that at least one parent of each Grade 9 student who plans to return to St Paul s next year attend the meeting on Tuesday February 25, The meeting will begin at 7:00 pm in Murray Hall and conclude about an hour later with coffee and refreshments. At 8:15 pm the Counselling Department will then make a presentation on course options for students entering Grade 10 next year. The purpose of this important meeting is to clarify the school s expectations and policies so that we can work together more effectively in providing your son with a St Paul s education. It is our expectation that all parents of Grade 9 students will make every effort to attend this meeting. Thank you for your continued cooperation with us and we look forward to seeing all of you on February 25 th! Admissions Process: The Admissions Process is well underway. The second Entrance Test sitting will take place from Noon - 4:00 pm on Sunday, February 10, If you know of anyone who may still want to apply for next year, as a rule, they must submit the application form and the application fee by Thursday February 7, 2008 so that they can sit for the Entrance Test on Sunday, February 10 th. Only in rare cases do we consider an application after the second Entrance test has taken place. Principal s Last Word Over the last few months I have been working with an ad hoc Nutrition Committee which has been examining the Draft Nutrition Policy that was developed at the end of last year in response to the Healthy Schools initiative and the Manitoba Schools Nutrition Guidelines developed by the Department and Manitoba Health. The Committee has also been assessing current nutrition practices and identifying initiatives to integrate components of the Nutrition Guidelines within the basic operations of the school. The Nutrition Committee is made up of members of the Parent Guild (Mrs Louise Paletta, Mrs Jane White and Mrs Cathy Burke), our Cafeteria Vendors Mr Tony Louizos and Mrs Stella Louizos, Student Issue 5 8

9 Council President Antonio Paletta 08, Student Council Vice President Adam Riese 08 and me. continued implementation of the Nutrition Policy and develop safer and healthier eating habits. The purpose of the Nutrition Policy is to support and promote healthy food choices in the St Paul s High School community. Even before the year started all beverage vending machines had all sugar based carbonated beverages removed and more healthy beverage choices added in replacement for the sugar sweetened pop. Beverage companies made this change in schools across Canada in response to public demand and government regulations. The school also arranged with our snack vendor to provide a much greater amount of healthy choices in the vending machines. As a result of the Committee s work the Louizos have modified the Cafeteria menu to include healthier choices, reduce unhealthy food offerings and will no longer sell candy or chocolate bars. In addition, the Louizos have developed a five week rotating menu and the lunch specials are posted in advance in the announcements found in the online community of the school s website. The Parent Guild has increased the price and reduced the number of candies per bag sold in the Crusader Shoppe. The Guild has also posted nutritional information related to the candy sold in order to try to decrease consumption of candy and educate students while still making it available to students. The Parent Guild is also going to try to reduce by half the amount of baked goods made available for sale at the monthly bake sales. The Student Council has promised to survey students on healthy food choices in order to propose continued improvements in the Cafeteria menu. Hopefully, through continued collaboration with the entire St Paul s community, better health education and improved healthy eating choices, our students and your sons will benefit from the Sincerely in Christ, Tom Lussier Principal CHRISTIAN SERVICE Term One has been a very busy one for the majority of our Grade 10 and Grade 11 students. Many of our students have given generously of their time and gifts in a wide variety of activities and placements. Some have used their athletic talents and assisted coaches at community clubs or in schools. Many have worked with the elderly and the infirm in institutions across the city. Several of our students have helped staff food banks and soup kitchens. Each student in the Christian Service Program will receive a record of their hours and reflection journal marks with their Term One reports. Please spend some time reviewing your sons efforts to date. The school recognizes the time commitment and generosity of your sons. Be sure to praise them when they are making an effort to meet or exceed school expectations. If your sons hours indicate a problem, now is a good point in time to discuss the issue and encourage a positive outcome by the conclusion of Term Two. Please be reminded that the minimum number of service hours required for students in Grade 10 is 20 hours, while Grade 11 students are required to serve a minimum of 30 hours. In addition, students are required to maintain a commitment to their placement(s) over the course of the entire school year, attending regularly and frequently. Term One ends quickly but Term Two seems to pass in a flash. Looking ahead, the following Issue 5 9

10 deadlines are important: Grade 10 students should have 17 hours or more served by April 9. Grade 11 students should have 26 hours or more served by April 9. Encourage your sons to plan wisely so these deadlines can be met. It is also a good idea to encourage accountability and consistency. I receive few complaints about our students but when I do they are often about failing to show up for a scheduled service date or failing to communicate a necessary absence to a supervisor. Recently, each student in the Christian Service Program was required to submit an evaluation of his performance so far this year. The evaluation included comments from the supervisors at the placements where students complete their service. The number of positive comments received for the excellent work our students are doing in their communities is impressive. I would like to share a few comments: Colin (Findlay 09) has shown commitment, reliability, and a great interest in his volunteer service. Staff comment on his respect and care towards residents and staff. Mirna Alberto, Supervisor, Misericordia Health Centre Sayoan (Ratna 09) is very good with the residents. He is patient and willing to help. We are very happy to have him as a volunteer. Jennifer Sheppard, Supervisor, The Sharon Home Anthony (Linton 09) is an excellent example of a student from St Paul s. He is motivated to complete his commitment in the best possible manner. He is a pleasure to have interacting with our residents. We admire his level of independence and reliability. Twyla Christle, Recreation Coordinator, Tuxedo Villa Robert (Schmidt 09) is a great guy. He is considerate of the residents, polite, and open to new challenges. I am always happy and relieved to see him here, and know that the area he covers will be taken care of. Vince Herner, Supervisor, Misericordia Health Centre Nicholas (Cobb 09) has been an excellent role model for our athletes and has been very helpful in assisting them in activities. I have been very impressed with Nicholas initiative, enthusiasm, and positive attitude. Eric Paas, Coach: River Heights Rockets, Special Olympics Danny (Militano 09) is a committed server who is always ready to step up and help. He is always polite and respectful to all around him. Alex Pulak ( 08), Volunteer/Supervisor, Immaculate Conception Drop-in Centre Harrison (Grant 09) is an absolute joy to have on our team and to work with. He has an amazing ability to relate to adults and shows great leadership abilities. I have seen him mature greatly in all ways since attending St Paul s. Vivian Klosse, Worship Team Coordinator, Ness Avenue Baptist Church Andrew (Ball 09) has shown remarkable commitment. Even injured he has shown a strong and encouraging presence. Andrew is kind and thoughtful and we have grown to appreciate his service. Ruth Chipman, Supervisor, Immaculate Conception Drop-in Centre I am very pleased to have Kurt (Anos 10) as my co-catechist in the confirmation program at St Joseph s Parish. His desire to serve and work Issue 5 10

11 with the teens of our parish is an exemplar for the other young people who want to grow and mature in their faith. Alina Sevilla, Supervisor/Teacher, St Joseph s Catechism Program Liam (Sharkey 10) was very helpful to our volleyball program, conducting practices and demonstrating leadership. Cheryl Van Dale, Supervisor, St Ignatius School Joseph (Cenerini 10) has been very patient and flexible in response to the students he is tutoring. The students demonstrate noticeable improvement in engagement with the subject matter in class after each session with Joseph. We are fortunate to have his service. Pat Barnson, St Ignatius School Ben (Obirek 10) has related well to our students and shown leadership in his interactions with them. He is an excellent role model and enjoys working with the kids. Catherine Kelly, After School Program Supervisor, St John Brebeuf School Lucas (Styre 10) has been an asset to our retirement community. I can speak on behalf of all the staff here and say that he has worked extremely hard making both the staff and residents very happy! Amy Withers, Supervisor, The Boulton Retirement Community These are just a small number the many positive comments our students have earned as a result of their commitment to service and as they strive to become Men for Others. Please contact me if have questions or concerns. Bob Lewin Christian Service Coordinator FROM THE COUNSELLING DEPARTMENT UNIVERSITY OF MANITOBA APPLICATIONS In mid-january, the Counselling Department ed all Grade Twelves with an application package for the University of Manitoba. The students were given all the detailed instructions on how to fill out the on-line application forms and were reminded that the date to submit the applications was February 22 nd. Applications received after February 22 will not be considered for U of M Entrance Scholarships. OPTION ASSEMBLIES / MEETINGS FOR When students return to school in February, they will be attending an Option Assembly conducted by the Counselling Department. At this assembly, students will learn about the options available in their next year of study. The students will bring an option sheet home with course descriptions after the assembly. Please spend quality time with your son going over the Option Forms because these choices are important. In order to help you make decisions with your son, there will be Parent Option Meetings on Monday evening, February 25 th, starting at 7 pm. The Option Forms are due at the Front Desk by Wednesday, March 12 th. DISAPPOINTING / DISASTROUS GRADES? These questions are a good starting point to reflect back on first term work habits and effort. Does your son do an Issue 5 11

12 average of at least 90 minutes of work (homework, review, study cards, recopy notes, etc.) at home? Does he use his student agenda, noting due dates and crossing off assignments that are completed? Have a look at his agenda with him. Did he take advantage of the extra hour of help offered weekly by his teacher(s)? That represents at least 12 hours of FREE tutoring by your son s best tutor Does he come prepared to class, take notes, participate in discussions and ask questions? Your son s teacher can best answer this question. If your son is in Grade Nine or Ten, did he make use of the exam study schedule that was made available weeks prior to exams? Does your son study in an environment conducive to learning? The TV, stereo, and computer entertainment tend to distract. Does your son keep an organized binder with neat notes, past quizzes and tests? Look over his binder and his notes with him. Does he read over past material, reread current material, or even read ahead to better understand the material? LOOKING AHEAD TO POST-SECONDARY EDUCATION? The University of Winnipeg will hold its Open House on Wednesday, February 20, from 5:30 pm to 8:00 pm (Riddell Hall Atrium, 385 Spence Street) Students who are seriously considering attending U of W should apply before March 1 st in order to qualify for Early Admission Scholarships.

U of M INFO DAYS FOR SENIOR THREE STUDENTS On Wednesday, February 20th, the University of Manitoba is conducting its annual Info Days. At a number of sessions, Grade Eleven students will be exposed to speakers and displays from the different faculties. They will learn such things as entrance requirements, career prospects, and course possibilities. St Paul s is happy to take part in this event in order to get our Grade Eleven students beginning to think about the proximity of university and the possibilities that exists. If you have any questions regarding Info Days, you may call Ms Nash at SAT DATES FOR GRADE ELEVEN & TWELVE STUDENTS Students thinking of pursuing their postsecondary studies in the United States will need to write the SAT.

The 2007 Crusader Raffle grossed $114,000. Expenses were approximately $30,000 for a net of $84,000. Funds were distributed in three ways based on the criteria of Student Activities : 1. Team incentives, 2. Needs presented by the staff, and 3. The Bursary Fund Team incentives for the student body included $6000 to the Student Council and $5,385 toward Graduation Credits for a total of $11, 385. Of the 21 needs presented by staff, 9 received funding for a total of $30,625. Together, the students of today, received a total of $40,010. The Bursary Fund received the remainder of the proceeds, nearly $44,000. In the future we will assign a percentage of the proceeds to be directed to the Bursary Fund. For this year, the $44,000 will create the first Crusader Raffle Bursary for the students of the future. As you may be aware, an initial gift of $5,000 will name a bursary at St Paul s, $120,000 will fully endow it at the present tuition level.

16 CRUSADER HOCKEY The Crusader Hockey team is enjoying tremendous success right now. We just got back from a trip of a lifetime in Europe, (see Mackenzie Acheson's writeup following this article) and have just won the International Tournament of Champions for the second consecutive year! The team is currently ranked number 1 in Manitoba, and has a record of We are currently on a two week exam break, and will resume action on Feb. 1st, and the playoffs the following week. The provincials this year are in Dauphin, Manitoba on March 7-9. Please see our website for further information. Led by Head Coach Andrew Harder, Assistant Coach Chad Horrill, Manager Rolf Krebs, student manager Scott Coubrough, Mr Hurton, along with many of our parents, we arrived in Vienna, Austria, following a full day of travel. We took a guided sightseeing tour of Vienna on the morning of December 28 th that included the MAK and the Natural History Museum. We played our first hockey game that evening against the Stock City Oilers from Stockerauer and won We left our hostel the following morning and headed southeast along the Danube River valley into Hungary and continued to the magnificent city of Budapest. Andrew Harder Head Coach, Crusader Hockey THE TRIP OF A LIFETIME The trip of a lifetime! That is what Coach Harder described to us before the St Paul s hockey team embarked on a thirteen day trip to Eastern Europe. We were set to travel Austria, Hungary, Slovakia, the Czech Republic and Germany leaving on Boxing Day. We stayed at the amazing Hunguest Hotel Platanus in Budapest. On Dec 30 th, we went on a tour of Budapest which included seeing Hero s square and the Vajdahunyad Castle. In the evening, we played our second game against UTE Budapest Hockey Club and won 7-1. We left Budapest on Monday, December 31 st and travelled northwest to Bratislava, Slovakia. The New Year celebration was a party in the streets and set in an unforgettable environment (a huge party zone at the historical city centre). There were various stages with bands, discos and some fantastic shows, as well as a great fireworks show on the Danube river bank Issue 5 16

17 mascot did a couple laps around the rink. We won this game 9-1. After the game, the host team provided a dinner for us. The next morning, we drove to the Frankfurt airport, which meant that we unfortunately had to go home. We arrived in Winnipeg at 6:00 pm on January 7 th. On New Year s Day, we were taken on a Bratislava sightseeing tour, where we saw a Jesuit Church, which was pretty cool as St Paul s is a Jesuit High School. January 2 nd, we left Bratislava and travelled north into the Czech Republic, heading straight to Pardubice for the World Junior quarter-final game between Canada and Finland, which was really exciting. On January 3 rd, we played our third game against HC Sparta Praha, a great team who moved the puck very well. We beat them 6-5 in a shootout, where Pat Henderson sniped the winner for us. On Friday the 4 th, we played another game against TJ Stadion Nymburk, who we beat 6-2. Immediately following this game, we headed back to Pardubice for the World Junior semi-final game between Canada and the US. Thanks to Hockey Canada, we had great seats and sat with the parents of the Team Canada players, which was really special. Everywhere you turned at the game you saw Canadian jerseys. On January 5 th, we got ready for the gold medal game, which included drenching ourselves in body paint and making signs, which made it on TSN. The game was unbelievable and it was unreal to see Canada win. Next, we travelled west into Mitterteich, Germany on January 6 th where we played the EHC Stiftland team. We were greeted on the ice by a five year old mascot, dressed up in a dragon costume. The team laughed hysterically as the This trip was an unbelievable experience. As we toured these countries in Europe, it was really cool to see how different they were from Canada. Most of the buildings were really old, tall, closely built together and had a lot of historical significance attached to them. During our two weeks we played five games, watched three World Junior games, toured five countries and more importantly got to know one another better and we really gelled as a team. We even found ourselves a new song called Hey Baby, which we play before every game. It was an unforgettable two weeks and really proved to be the trip of a lifetime! Mackenzie Acheson Captain St Paul s High School Hockey Team AAA CRUSADER FOOTBALL The 2007 AAA season came to a close in semi-final action with a tough, hardfought loss to the Oak Park Raiders. The game was a played at a high level Issue 5 17

18 as both teams were very familiar with one another seeing that this was their third meeting in the 2007 season. While the season did not end the way in which we would have preferred, there is much to be proud of. Not the least of which is an undefeated regular season for the third year in a row. Congratulations to all players and coaches for a truly outstanding effort in this the 76th anniversary of Crusader football. Special congratulations go out to some players for the individual honours they received from the league. League coaches selected Kevin Kwasny 08 as the Elite Performance Center Defensive Player of the Year.

Although the AAA team received a lot of attention this season, the AA team was also Issue 5 18

19 determined to prove that they too had what it takes to be a real contender. A huge memory for all members of the AA team would certainly be their Week 7 match-up versus Sturgeon Heights. This game was a game that, if won, would earn the AA team third place in the Vidruk Division. The highlight of the game was Matthew Kulas game-winning field goal, which sent the team and the crowd into a frenzy. A championship game appearance for AA football was a real possibility. Unfortunately their efforts fell short in a close but heartbreaking game against the Kildonan East Reivers. Despite the fact that they did not make an appearance in the championship game, they showed that they were not only capable of playing at a higher level, but also competing and winning at a higher level. The Crusader AA team would like to thank all of the coaches, trainers, faculty, parents, fans and alumni who were involved in making this a truly amazing season. Below is a complete list of the players nominated for league awards or named to league honours for the AA Crusaders.
