September 14, 2017 blue notes




On Monday, September 11th, the seniors went to the cathedral to celebrate Mass with all the seniors in the diocese.  Bishop Foys was the celebrant.  At the Mass, Bishop Foys granted the seniors in the diocese a day off school.  This day will be taken on Monday, September 18th.   Seniors have no classes on Monday.


Attention, please note that the NEHS Induction that occurs Wed, Sept. 20 will actually begin at 7:30 pm in the chapel for Mass before the induction.  This is a change from 7pm.



We are looking for two or three couples to come early to the football game on September 22 to grill hot dogs and serve to the CYF teams.  That Friday is the night that the Colonel Youth Football teams come to the game and there will be an activity for them from 5:30 - 6:30 up on the baseball field.  The school will provide the grill,  the hot dogs, buns, napkins, and have water for the kids to drink.  All we need are people to grill and serve the hot dogs.  Please contact the Marketing Office @ 859-448-2259 if you can help.



Bass Fishing is now a KHSAA sanctioned event and Covington Catholic will be offering it for the first time this spring.  There will be an informational meeting on Wednesday 9/20 in the Multi-purpose room at 8:00 a.m.

If you have any interest in fishing for CCH, please attend the informational meeting next Wednesday.



Don't miss out on the fun! CCH has been running an intramural bowling league for years. It's a great way to meet new friends, be as social or as serious as you want (because we do keep stats), but all in all it's just about spending time with fellow CCH classmates outside of class once a week until Christmas break.

There will be representatives’ setup each morning starting the week of September 11th in the school entrance for signups. They will also have all the details (dates, times, fees, etc). The signup deadline will be Sept 22nd. The first week of bowling will be Wednesday, Sep 27th.

Hint: CCH has a competitive Varsity bowling team – this is a great way for starters to learn the game, work on skills and get some lane time!

Attention ALL Spanish speakers (or wannabes)

Senora and Mrs. Stengle are planning a one week tour to Spain next summer.

Mark your calendars for Thursday, September 14 – That’s the date for our informational meeting about this tour.  We plan on departing June 6, 2018 for an eight day tour of Spain.   Any student and or parent/family is welcome to join us to learn more about our grand adventure.  There are no European tours available with all these features at a lower price.

This will be our fourth year of European tours with EF.  Everything is included in the tour price, (except lunch every day), especially our very own 24/7 EF tour guide.  This professional guide meets us at the airport and travels with us the whole time.  This is a great opportunity for your son to become a global citizen – learning about different cultures, making new friends and seeing the world in a safe environment. 

If you can’t make our informational meeting, please check our tour online at

Enroll by September 29, 2017, and you’ll be entered into a raffle to win one of five $100 scholarships for this tour!!

Please contact Mrs. Stengle at for more information.

AMAZON REWARDS - Don't forget to use the Amazon link on the CCH website and on the bottom of this email when ordering from Amazon.  It costs nothing extra to you and CCH gets credit for the sale.  So far this year we  have been able to get an industrial size shredder and have replaced the refrigerator in the faculty dining room.    YouTube 


If you prefer to send your son's lunch money to school instead of using the online payment method, please have him drop his money in the box on the counter of the main office first thing in the morning.  This helps to speed up the lunch line.


This year's Father Son Event will be starting earlier than initially scheduled.  Registration will begin Sunday October 1 at 12:00 and kick-off ceremonies will start at 12:30 in the gym.  This year we are adding new events that include a speed pitch machine and soccer dart board as well as a wiffle ball event.  Don't miss the chance to spend a great afternoon with your son.  The cornhole event is also being modified so more teams can participate beyond the throw-in stage.  Finally, there is a chili cook off at the beginning of the day and we need as many volunteers as possible to bring in a pot of their favorite chili recipe.  If you have any questions, please email Brad Hanna at
