The deadline for logging service hours is coming up. Here is a rundown of what's required:
The first-semester requirement is 18 hours for all grades. Service hours count for 10% of the student's semester grade in their theology class. All hours logged and verified since the beginning of the summer break will count toward the semester one requirement.
Students should check their service logs and if their entry is more than a week old without verification, please have them check the email of the supervisor as sometimes this is entered incorrectly by the student and the supervisor never receives the verification email.
From the Indiana Department of Education, go to foodfinder.us. FoodFinder is a map of food pantries nationwide. Families can find food pantries if needed during the time kids are out of school for winter break and not eating at school every weekday.

With winter fast approaching, here is our elearning learning plan that is stated in the student handbook:
The school calendar traditionally has four days designated as “Snow Make-up Days”: Martin Luther King Day, Presidents Day, Easter Monday and the final Friday of the school year. Should we cancel school for any reason during the school year, we will use the next “Snow Make-up Day” available on the school calendar as an E-learning day. Students will not report physically to school on an E-learning day. They will be required to log into their Canvas account by 10:00 AM for attendance purposes and to complete assignments given to them by their teachers for this E-learning day. Roncalli will not use an E-learning day on the actual day for which school is canceled.
If you missed the Choice Scholarship (formerly known as a voucher), there is a second application window open now until January 15th. Click here for more informaton. If you have any questions or want to see if you qualify, please contact Amy Kuntz.
