Billings Central Catholic High School

November 1, 2018

Dear Parents, Staff, and Students:
At the end of this week (remarkably, just like that) the first quarter of the 2018-19 school year is over. The school year races by year after year at a truly amazing pace. Each fall, I set the goal that this is our best school year ever. As we work through the highs and lows and all of the factors associated with the high school experience, I can say without hesitation that this has been one of our best in my 17-year tenure at BCCHS. Overall, the work ethic, academic integrity, respect, and atmosphere throughout the classrooms, hallways, school masses and activities have been commendable. Thank you for sharing your gifts and for the role you play in making our school a special place. There is no doubt that with His grace and guidance, and the momentum we have going, this will be our best year yet…World Class!

I want to take a moment to congratulate the golf, XC, and boys soccer teams as they have completed their fall seasons. There were some fantastic moments and at the end of the day each of these groups did a great job representing BC. I would also like to congratulate girls soccer on winning the state championship this past weekend. The season was special, and the final game was incredible. Congratulation girls – and what an amazing run as BC girls soccer has won 9 of the last 11 state championships! The music department’s Collage concert on Monday was exceptional as well. I am always astounded by the musical talent of so many of our students. Thank you to all for making great memories.
