Athletics Camps
Academic Camps
New this Year
We also want to share this special opportunity for a SPICE Program social camp:
WHO: Open to Grades 6-9
WHEN: June 8 to 11, 9 am - Noon
COST: $45
CONTACT: Cara Rezabek
 
This social group focuses on general social skills and the specific needs of students going through adolescence. This camp is designed for 6th-9th graders who have been diagnosed with a disability who need support in the areas of communication, social interactions and relationships. This camp will help students work on skills needed to build friendships, learn expectations of the high school setting, and develop confidence in many different social situations. Students will participate in a variety of fun activities and engaging lessons while getting to know other students in other Catholic Schools that have similar needs and experiences. 
NATIONAL HONOR SOCIETY NEWS
Selections for the National Honor Society will begin soon. Once moderator, Mrs. Maloof, has the list of students who are academically eligible (3.500 cumulative GPA after a minimum of 3 semesters), she will send those students an invitation to apply. All details will be included with the invitation.

Please note that there are other organizations which, on the surface, appear to be NHS. They are not affiliated with Bishop Hartley and do not carry the same prestige as National Honor Society membership. The National Society of High School Scholars (NSHSS) and the Honor Society Foundation, while legitimate organizations, charge for memberships and are not based on GPA.

Senior members of our NHS chapter will wear gold chords and tassels at graduation. Information about those will be forthcoming. It will go directly to the student members, so they should watch email for notices.
CATHOLIC FOUNDATION GRANT
At Bishop Hartley, we create a safe and supportive learning environment where students can thrive and grow. We are always seeking ways to protect our students and keep them safe. We are grateful to The Catholic Foundation which provided Bishop Hartley with a grant in the amount of $2,626.19 for the purchase and installation of new security cameras for the multi-purpose TACC facility and football entrance.
FULL SCHOLARSHIP FOR MATTHEW FRANZ
Congratulations to senior, Matthew Franz, who has been named a Lilly Scholar at Wabash University. The Lilly Award covers tuition, standard fees, on-campus room and board each year. It is valued at more than $200,000 over four years. Congratulations, Matthew!
