CHRISTIAN SERVICE HOURS

Students seeking opportunities to finish their service requirement for the year can find a number of service projects on our website.



SENIOR PARENTS
Your graduating seniors have the opportunity to buy their Chromebook at the end of the year. We got this word out to seniors about three weeks ago. Thus far, only a few have chosen to buy their device. Please check with them on their plans to buy their Chromebook and let Mr. Daniel Buchanan know of their intent to purchase. You may have them bring cash or check to Mr. Buchanan’s office in the Commons by the last day of school. If they are not planning to buy their Chromebook, please make sure they know to turn them into the Library (with their charger) before the end of the school year to avoid any holds at the end of the year.



BELIEVE IN KELLEY
We are grateful to to the parents and guardians who have already made gifts to Believe in Kelley. While we have crossed the $300,000 mark, we’re still far short of our goal of $500,000. Our plans for this year’s fund include enhancing student safety and security, and offering more tuition assistance to low and middle income families who also value a strong Catholic education for their children.

The security enhancements that we hope to implement next year include:

Additional security cameras

Visitor management system in Main Office

Safety laminate on glass entryways

Complete our electronic gate installation

 

We need the full support of our parents and guardians to reach our goal. Whether you can afford a gift of $10, $100, or $1,000, your gift will make a difference! If you have not yet viewed the short video from Fr. Kastl, you may view it here. You can support Believe in Kelley through an online gift or send a check to the Advancement Office, 3905 S. Hudson Ave, Tulsa, OK 74135-5699.

 

 

START THE CONVERSATION - UNDERAGE DRINKING: MYTHS VS. FACTS

Did you know that alcohol is the most widely misused substance among America's youth? To help increase awareness about this serious issue, SAMHSA’s Center for Substance Abuse Prevention offers an updated fact sheet, Underage Drinking: Myths Versus Facts, specifically written for preteens and teens. This fact sheet compares common myths about alcohol use with the facts about the prevalence of alcohol use. Share this resource with our youth to start the conversation and spread the word about underage drinking and alcohol misuse.

SENIOR CLASS GIFT

Senior Parents! With only a few days left of school check here to make sure your senior has given to their Senior Legacy Gift. Seniors are not required to participate, but are encouraged to thoughtfully consider a pledge to The Bishop Kelley Memorial Fountain. Our goal is for 100% of the senior class to participate. Each gift, no matter the size, counts, and is important to make this project a success.

           

We plan to have the fountain, concrete sidewalk, memorial bricks, lighting and bench back seating installed in June so that the class of 2018 can enjoy it in July when they return to pick up their yearbook and attend Fr. Kastl's blessing of the fountain.

 

We invite seniors to make gifts of $100-$200 and break up their giving over a four-year period starting with the first gift made during this month, and annual gifts of $25 or $50 each of the following three years. Click here or go to www.BishopKelley.org/SeniorClassGift to make your gift/pledge online. Click here to watch a short video about the Memorial Fountain.
