@ A Glance
It's Enrollment Time!
Look for an e-mail tomorrow regarding current student registration for the 2017-18 School Year. We'd love to see all of our students, with the loving exception of our Seniors, back again next year.  Also, if you know of families interested in attending Central Catholic, please connect them with me. Feel free to share my e-mail and cell phone number (309-533-2200), we have the potential for a Freshman class of over 100, but we'll need your help to get there! Please share these important dates with all interested families.
Bring Your Cans To School
It's a bit late in the day, so I'm having more fun with titles than usual. Our Interact Club is holding a canned soup, fruit and vegetable drive through Friday so, please, send those cans to school and help out  the St. Vincent DePaul food pantry.
Respect Life Mass January 24
Thank you to the nearly 80 students who traveled to Chicago Sunday to March for Life!  Next up are the 49 Seniors and Juniors heading to Washington DC next week for the national March for Life and YOU can support their efforts. We are hosting our first Respect Life Mass for the Bloomington-Normal community in our chapel next Tuesday, January 24 at 5:00 p.m.  The goal of this Mass is to gather our Catholic community in one place and pray for an end to abortion and a greater respect for all human life.  This event will also serve as way for the community to send-off our Junior and Senior students who will be leaving on the March for Life pilgrimage the next day.  
Softball Meeting TONIGHT
Attention anyone interested in playing softball this spring: There is a parent/player meeting TONIGHT, January 17th at 7:00 p.m. in our cafeteria.

Jeans Day FRIDAY
