FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 3, 2017 - FOOTBALL @ CCH VS. BULLITT CENTRAL HIGH SCHOOL - 7:00 P.M. - 2nd PLAYOFF GAME
CALENDAR CHANGE: THE ACADEMIC AWARDS ASSEMBLY THAT WAS SCHEDULED FOR NOVEMBER 16TH HAS BEEN POSTPONED TO A LATER DATE IN THE SECOND SEMESTER. THE DATE IS TO BE DETERMINED AND YOU WILL BE NOTIFIED BY MAIL CLOSER TO THE DATE OF THE RESCHEDULED EVENT IF YOUR SON IS TO BE HONORED.
PRO-LIFE MOVIE NIGHT
Since it is playoff time in football, I thought we would feature WOODLAWN. Here is the write-up on this movie:
In 1973, a spiritual awakening captured the heart of nearly every player on the Woodlawn High School football team. Their dedication to love and unity, in a newly desegregated school filled with racism and hate, leads to the largest high school football game ever played in the torn city of Birmingham, Alabama, and the rise of a superstar, Tony Nathan who went on to play at the professional level.
Date: November 14th
Time: 6:00 pm (run time 2 hours)
Place: Covington Catholic High School in the main building.
Sponsored by: COLONELS FOR LIFE
Food and Beverages allowed during movie, just need to clean up after the movie.
2017 BACK THE BLUE
Due to the overwhelming response to this year’s Back the Blue, we have sold the event out for the 3rd year in a row. If you missed the opportunity to register or are unable to attend for some other reason, don’t let that stop you from being a part of the event! You can still view and bid on auction items without attending by going to Covington.gesture.com. This is a great way to knock out some special Christmas gifts while supporting Covington Catholic at the same time. We thank all those who registered and those who still wish to be a part of the success of Back the Blue by going to our Gesture website!
ONLY 46 DAYS UNTIL CHRISTMAS!
For those of you who start your Christmas shopping early and like to shop from home, here is the CovCath link to Amazon. You will still get credit for your purchases and so with CovCath. Credits earned for the school are used to purchase non-budgeted items that are needed. For example, the refrigerator in the faculty lunch room died this fall. With the credits built up in the CCH account, the refrigerator was replaced at no cost to the school. It is easy...just log into your account using the following link:
You are basically donating to the school at no cost to you! This program is good year round.
NOVEMBER LUNCH MENU
MARCH FOR LIFE
Our school annually participates in the March for Life event in Washington D.C. I have witnessed our level of participation having grown from 84 students in 2008, to 213 students last year. Together with 11 parent chaperones and 8 faculty members, our five buses were part of a larger caravan totaling sixteen buses from the Covington diocesan high schools, parishes and youth groups to make this important journey. Our Colonels represented nearly one quarter of the Diocese of Covington supporters. (Click here for full letter & registration papers.) Link to website page for:

EUROPEAN TRAVEL CLUB
Attention ALL Spanish speakers and Pilgrims
Senora and Mrs. Stengle are planning a tour to Spain and Portugal in June 2019
We’ll depart June 4, 2019, for 8 days in Spain and Portugal. What a great opportunity to enjoy Spanish culture and food, while speaking the language!! This tour will also stop in Fatima, at the site of Marian apparitions, (just 100 years ago!)
We will have an informational meeting on Thursday, November 16 at 7:00pm in the Multi Purpose Room. We are beginning enrollments early for this trip, because of the pricing incentives offered by EF Tours. If you commit by November 30, there is a $200 signing bonus toward the price of the tour. Enrollments for this 8 day tour to Spain and Portugal begin on Nov. 16, 2017.
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. Having been to Fatima, I am particularly excited to share this amazing place with my students.
As always, parents and siblings are welcome to join our tour.
Please contact Mrs. Stengle at email@example.com for more information.
