VIDEO OF OUR NEW PRINCIPAL

We welcomed our new principal, Jim Franz, to Bishop Kelley last week when his hiring was announced. We were pleased that he was also able to join us for the BK Auction Saturday evening, where he met a number of parents and alumni. To help get to know him, please take a few minutes to watch Mr. Franz speak at the press conference last Thursday morning. We look forward to having him join the Bishop Kelley administration on July 1st.

BELIEVE IN KELLEY

Have you made your gift to Believe in Kelley yet?  The students in the class with the largest parent participation by midnight on Monday, May 1, 2017 will receive a free dress day! This year’s Believe in Kelley gifts will go to:

 

  • FURNITURE - Replacing worn furniture in the cafeteria, commons, and main office.

  • FREQUENCY - Replacing the mismatched and outdated system we currently have.

  • FINANCIAL AID - One-fourth of Bishop Kelley students receive tuition assistance to attend Bishop Kelley and the demonstrated need is greater than what we are able to currently provide.

 

The junior class currently leads but any class could pull ahead over the next week!

 

Current class participation rates:

Junior parents - 20.4%

Sophomore parents - 15.5%

Senior parents - 15.3%

Freshman parents - 13.4%

 

We are just over 60% of the way to our goal of $500,000 and need the help of our current parents to reach that goal. No gift is too small and every gift makes a difference! If you have students in multiple classes, each class will receive credit for your gift.Click here to make an online gift to Believe in Kelley.
