Assisting the House of Prayer - Here are some words from a 5th/6th grade student who assisted at the House of Prayer: We went to the House of Prayer because it's like a mission from God. God wants us to be disciples and I know we were. People were so kind and I'm so happy because my heart for people gets bigger and bigger. I loved seeing all their happy faces when they saw us working.

A big thank you to the PTO for putting on this event. It was a huge success. Everyone had a wonderful time. Thank you to everyone who participated. A huge thanks to Samantha Graves and Angie Huwar for all their hard work running the PTO!

Our teachers rocked the house for the annual BHMS Eagle Spirit Dance! Thanks to Mary Garr for the choreography and for everyone that worked hard to make this a success!

Dee Gutshall and Terri Tyree will be missed next year. We appreciate their dedication to our school and to the students. They have been great friends to work with. They will be in our prayers as they enter the next chapter of their lives. Good luck and thank you for being at Bishop Hogan!

FROM THE PRINCIPAL... The school year is wrapping up! It has been an awesome year, with lots of student accomplishments and learning. We are fortunate to have a dedicated staff that works so hard, and students who do, too! Teachers were celebrated all last week during Teacher Appreciation Week. Our Parent-Teacher Organization (PTO) treated our staff on different days with doughnuts, popcorn with movie rental coupons, potted flowers, and lunch. What nice surprises we had each day! We appreciate our PTO! I think our School Day at the K was a fun trip. Thank you to everyone who went and represented Bishop Hogan! We had a huge crowd! Thursday, we held an all-school Field Day. Kudos to Mr. John Locker and the classroom teachers for preparing a day of fun activities for the students. Everyone enjoyed an outside picnic lunch between activities!

Their graduation is Saturday after the 5:00 Mass. Our preschool students will participate in a graduation ceremony on Monday, May 16, at 6:00 p.m in the Bishop Hogan gymnasium. Tuesday, May 17, is our final day of school. Students will be dismissed at 12:15. I want to take this opportunity to thank you for all of your support throughout this year.
