Parent-Teacher Conferences – October 18-19 

Please note that Parent-Teacher Conferences are scheduled for Thursday evening, October 18 from 5 to 8 p.m. and Friday morning, October 19 from 9 a.m. to noon in the Heider Center. Prep does not mail home progress reports or report cards. Parents can view their son’s progress report by following these steps:

  • Click HERE to reach the PowerSchool login page.
  • Log in to PowerSchool.
  • From the menu on the left, select Grade History.
  • Select the 2018-2019 tab.
  • Use the PRINTER icon in the upper right to print your student’s progress report.

PLEASE BE SURE TO PRINT A COPY OF THE REPORT AND BRING IT TO PARENT-TEACHER CONFERENCES.

PARENTS MAY ENTER THE BUILDING THROUGH THE HEIDER CENTER ENTRANCE FROM THE EAST PARKING LOT OR THE MAIN WEST ENTRANCE TO THE SCHOOL, ADJACENT TO THE WEST PARKING LOT.

ALL TEACHERS WILL BE LOCATED IN THE HEIDER CENTER, SEATED IN ALPHABETICAL ORDER, AND ALL COUNSELORS WILL BE LOCATED IN THE UPPER TRACK AREA.

Parent-Teacher Conferences help parents and teachers join in a partnership to further your son’s education.

Parent conferences do not provide the time for in-depth interaction, so we ask that you keep your visit with each teacher to five minutes. If you receive valuable insight and you would like to pursue it or if more time is necessary, make an appointment with the teacher for a future visit or phone call. Some the items below may help focus each conference:

  • Let your son know that you are going to visit his teachers. Find out if there is something he would like you to ask or tell the teacher.
  • Ask your son to tell you about each of his classes. Look at your son’s notebooks and assignments. This may give you a perspective that will make the teacher’s comments more meaningful.
  • Don’t hesitate to ask about specific points: behavior, homework, class participation, work habits, basic skills, social interaction, attendance, tests, attitude, morale, etc.
  • Focus on one or two specific points. The goal of the conference is to identify problems (if there are any), not to necessarily solve them at that time.
  • Conferences are most successful when parents summarize their findings, with a course of action with their son, and follow up on his adherence to that plan. Ask your son to assess his own strengths and weaknesses. What is he going to do about what his teachers have said? Make a plan, perhaps a contract, and follow it.

Our hope is that one or two of these suggestions will help to make your teacher conferences a more effective and valuable experience for you and a more enjoyable event for all the Prep parents and teachers.

The Jay Mart will also be open for Parent-Teacher Conferences on Thursday afternoon/evening from 4:30-8 p.m. and Friday morning from 8:30 a.m.-12 p.m. The store is located in the Smith Atrium just outside the Heider Center.

Historic $8 Million Lead Gift Launches Campaign for Lannon Learning Commons

(announced on Thursday, May 10)

Dear Creighton Prep Community,

With deep gratitude and great joy, I am pleased to announce that The Heider Family has made a historic $8 million lead gift for the building of a new $16 million student learning commons on the campus of Creighton Prep.

The gift, in honor of Fr. Timothy R. Lannon, SJ who served as the 28th president of Creighton Prep from 1988-1995, is the single largest gift Prep has received for a capital project in our 140-year history. In addition, Cindy and Scott Heider have agreed to chair the campaign to raise the additional $8 million.

The Lannon Learning Commons will be a student-centric space that will serve as the new home for a School Psychologist, a Learning Specialist, an Academic Coach and a Director of Student Outreach and Advocacy. It will also serve our five Guidance Counselors, a Director of College Counseling and an Assistant Principal for Student Support Services. Creighton Prep's mission to care for the whole person will be significantly enhanced by this gift and will help assist our young men as they navigate their emotional and academic needs.

"I am very excited to lead this project, not only because it advances the Prep mission by bringing holistic student services to a new level but also because every young man at the school will be able to take full advantage of the new space and programs. It will complement the exceptional academic and formative experience the students already receive," said Cindy.

"My family truly could not be more pleased to do this," noted Scott. "Prep and its mission are very close to our hearts, and we hope this gift inspires others to also make commitments to a new student-focused program that we believe is very timely and greatly needed. This is exactly the kind of impact we're looking for."

Please join me in thanking the Heiders for their exemplary commitment to our Jesuit Catholic mission. I am also indebted to them for their continued leadership as we begin to seek the remaining funds for the Lannon Learning Commons.

In Christ,

Fr. Tom Neitzke, SJ

President

Creighton Preparatory School

 

Jesuit Reflection

 

Blessed Easter to you. That’s correct; it is still the Easter season. The Easter season in the Roman Catholic Church consists of a week of Sundays (that is, seven Sundays). The Easter season, a season of fifty days, is intended to help us celebrate the Resurrection and to send us forth into the world with Joy. The season of Easter includes Divine Mercy Sunday, Feast of the Ascension (5/10/18), and ends on the feast of the Pentecost (5/20/18). However, many of us spend so much time celebrating spring, prom and graduation that we miss out on the Easter season.

St. Ignatius of Loyola suggests a number of ways to help us refocus on the resurrection and new life that God offers. Meditating on the resurrection stories (there are 12) in the Gospels and Acts of the Apostles helps draw us closer to a relationship with Jesus.

Which resurrection story is your favorite? I was quick to say the Emmaus story because it is the only one I could remember. Then I allowed myself the gift of reading over them again. Now I say my favorite is in the Gospel of Mark, chapter 16, verses 9-12. This story points out that even with the appearance of Jesus, others struggle with believing in the resurrection. I struggle too, at times, to believe in the Good News. Do you?

St. Ignatius then invites us to imagine that Jesus’ first post resurrection appearance is to his mother, the Blessed Virgin. Can you imagine what that encounter would have been like?  I imagine so much amazing love and so much incredulity. Is it easy to imagine that kind of love in that relationship? The Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius of Loyola ends with a meditation that is intended to send us forth into the world. The meditation is called the “Contemplation to Gain Love.”  This meditation is presented in four parts that aim to keep my vision on service. Jim Manney, author of the Ignatian Spirituality website, describes the four parts in the following way in his “Contemplation on the Love of God”:

“The contemplation invites reflection on four themes:

  1. Reflection on God’s gifts to us (life, family, friends, faith, church, eternal life).
  2. God’s self-giving in Jesus.
  3. God’s continuing work in the world.
  4. The limitless quality of God’s love. As a contemporary paraphrase has it, ‘God’s love shines down upon me like the light rays from the sun, or God’s love is poured forth lavishly like a fountain spilling forth its waters into an unending stream.’” 

My experience of the Risen Christ has encouraged me to see hope and act out of a joy-filled heart. I am able to see Christ daily through all of the works of God in the world. I can’t help but celebrate.

How will you celebrate the end of the Easter season? Will you throw a party to commemorate the Pentecost? If so, invite me?

Fr. Kevin Schneider, SJ

Volunteer Opportunities

 

Consider Serving in the Alumni Volunteer Corps for the 2018-2019 Academic Year

For young alumni nearing the completion of college, we invite you to consider applying to serve at Prep in the Alumni Volunteer Corps (AVC) for the 2018-2019 academic year.

Serving in the AVC is an opportunity for Prep alumni who have recently graduated from college to once again become involved in the school and use their gifts to serve within the Prep community. AVC members also live rent-free on campus and receive a small monthly stipend as well as health insurance.

It is ideal for those who would like to do real and meaningful work as teachers, coaches, tutors or as staff members working in areas such as advancement, campus ministry, admissions, etc. A year in the AVC is also a great opportunity for alumni to gain valuable work experience.

"I have enjoyed being a part of the Creighton Prep community as a member of the Alumni Volunteer Corps, connecting with students both in the classroom and through clubs and athletics. Helping my students academically and seeing them develop as people has brought me a lot of joy. I have also grown as a professional, become more confident and gained important experience for my career."

– Matthew Jadlowski '13, co-teacher of Catholic Social Teaching, assistant for student outreach and advocacy, and coach of football and soccer.

Prep graduates interested in serving in the AVC during the 2018-2019 academic year can visit www.creightonprep.org/avc today to learn more then HERE to request more information or a phone call to further explore the opportunity.

Prep Junior Receives Coolidge Scholarship

Congratulations to Creighton Prep junior Matthew Muellner who has been recognized by the Calvin Coolidge Presidential Foundation as one of four Coolidge Scholarship recipients for 2018. According to the Coolidge Scholars website, this prestigious award is a “full-ride, presidential scholarship that covers a student’s tuition, room, board, and expenses for four years of undergraduate study … at any accredited college or university in the U.S.”

“I am very grateful for the award and the opportunity that comes with it,” said Matthew. “I also want to thank the teachers and students at Prep who have had such a great impact on me.”

The four selected for the Coolidge Scholarship were chosen from over 3,200 applicants, said Executive Director Matthew Denhart. “We’re very pleased to honor Matthew and welcome him to the family of Coolidge Scholars,” he noted.

Selection criteria included academic achievement, an interest in public policy and an appreciation for the values that President Coolidge exhibited throughout his life, such as civility, government restraint and respects for teachers. A sense of humility and an orientation toward serving others were also important factors.

“We would like to thank the Calvin Coolidge Presidential Foundation and those on the Finalist Jury for selecting Matthew for this wonderful honor,” said Creighton Prep Principal Jim Bopp. "He excels both academically and as a generous student leader who uses his many gifts in the service of others."
