ALUMNI SPOTLIGHT
Annie Levy - STC Class of 2015
Bloomington South High School

Annie is currently attending the University of Indianapolis, where she swims for the Greyhounds and is majoring in Elementary Education with a minor in Psychology.

"Attending St. Charles helped to prepare me for the difficult classes that I took in high school and the classes that I am taking now. Surrounding myself with people who shared the same passion for learning and furthering their educational path kept me motivated and also allowed me to maintain great friendships through the years."
Yearbooks are on sale for $20.00. There is an order form in your child's Friday folder.
Orders are due by April 3, 2020. Checks or FACTS payment is available.

Track and Field Call Out
The St. Charles track and field season is just around the corner and we invite ALL 4th-8th grade students to join the program! If your child is interested in track club or the middle school track and field team, please email Coach Arther before spring break through Jupiter or email:  varther@stcharlesbloomington.org

TRACK AND FIELD IS NOT JUST ABOUT RUNNING!  This is an opportunity for your child to learn new skills and develop habits for a healthy lifestyle! Kids of all shapes, sizes and abilities are welcome! Kids will have fun outside with their friends while they jump, throw and run!

The season will run March 23 - May 13 and there will be two programs:

4th & 5th grade - TRACK CLUB
An introductory program which will expose the kids to all the different events of track and field at a developmentally-appropriate level. Practices will be on Monday, Wednesday, and Thursdays from 5:30-7:00pm. Most practices will be held at Bloomington North High School track. We are asking that track club athletes attend any given two practices a week. Track Club athletes will participate in three track meets against other Catholic schools during the season.

6th-8th grade - TRACK TEAM
This is the more advanced program in which athletes will concentrate on and compete in specific events -- distance running, sprints, hurdles, relays, long jump, high jump or throws. The coaches will help both the returning veterans and the new kids select which events to focus on. Practices will be Monday, Wednesday and Thursdays from 5:30-7:00pm. Most practices will take place at the North track. Kids will participate in 7-8 track meets against other middle schools, both public and Catholic. Please note that when the North track is not available, we will practice at St. Charles from 3:30-5:00.

A schedule will be ready to share with interested families by the beginning of March.There will be a parent meeting at the end of our first official practice on Monday, March 23. We will meet in the bleachers at North at 6:45pm and the meeting should not last more than 15 minutes. We are also looking for parent volunteers to help our coaching staff this season. Lori Miller and Heath Norrick lead our elementary group and Tori Arther and Mary Zinkan are the lead coaches for the middle school team. We would love to have willing parents join our coaching staff. We are always looking for field event help as well!

We look forward to hearing from you,
Coach Arther and Coach Zinkan

St. Charles Service Project for the month of March

St. Charles is proudly partnering with the Boys and Girls Club of Bloomington and their spring Pop Up Shop to support the Ferguson Crestmont Center. Just like last year,   they are looking for gently used or new spring and summer clothes for children ages 5-18. Although spring and summer clothing is their priority, they will accept fall and winter clothing items, as well. We will have boxes set up outside the front office towards the end of this week as we begin to collect items. 
Please join us...

We always sing at the 10:00am Mass with warm-up at 9:40am.
March 29
April 5 & 26
May 10 & 17
LET US PRAY
For the Holy Catholic Church... for Pope Francis... and for all those who lead us in our Catholic faith...that they will remain in unity with each other... and with the Holy Father.
 
For Archbishop Charles C. Thompson... as he leads the Archdiocese of Indianapolis.

For all faithful servants of the Gospel, dedicated holy priests, sisters, brothers and deacons, who will dedicate themselves to your people and their needs. We pray especially for all seminarians and those who are discerning religious life that they will answer the call without hesitation. 

Let's pray for a change of hearts to end abortion in this country, and around the world. We pray for our leaders to make good decisions that support life. Lord, help our culture respect life from conception to natural death.
Amen.
