St. Michael School in South Sioux City builds community

SOUTH SIOUX CITY - Citing dedicated teachers, engaged parents and eager students, officials say there is a strong sense of community at St. Michael School.

And it's a community that's growing, said Donna Bishop, in her fourth year as principal.

Thanks to adding a preschool program in 2007-08, marketing efforts and positive word of mouth, enrollment in preschool through eighth grade has increased to 161 students this school year from 117 students in 2008-2009.

Music in Catholic Schools celebrating 35th anniversary

For 35 years, Music in Catholic Schools (MCS) has helped students explore their God-given talents, develop discipline and express creativity while learning to play an instrument in a band.

Just ask two graduates of the program - Rosario Galante and Zach Beran.

Galante, now a senior at Creighton Preparatory School in Omaha, said he played clarinet in the MCS honor band at St. James/Seton School, also in Omaha, and sharing his talent with others through the program was a form of worship.

Catholic schools offer variety of faith-filled activities

Growing up, Billy Hoy enjoyed playing baseball, basketball and soccer.

But entering Creighton Preparatory School in Omaha four years ago, he decided to try lacrosse.

Now a senior, Hoy said the club sport teaches him teamwork and discipline, creates friendships and allows him to keep playing a competitive sport.

"It's a lot of fun," he said. "The group of guys we play with is awesome."
