Parent Information Week of May 15, 2017


 

Please remind students not taking finals to turn in books before leaving school their final day of class. Other students should turn in their books following finals. Students should also make sure all service hours, fees, and other obligations have been met by their last class day for the year. Failure to do so will result in the withholding of final grades.



YEAR-END SURVEY

You should receive a link to an end-of-year survey by email this week from Dr. Curt Adams and the Oklahoma Center for Education. As part of our ongoing efforts to constantly improve, every student, parent, faculty, and staff member will receive this survey. The survey will provide formative information that is useful for continuous school improvement. Participation is voluntary, and responses are anonymous. No one from Bishop Kelley will know who participated. The survey window opens 5/22/17 and ends 6/9/17. If you do not receive a survey, let us know. Please contact Fr. O’Brien with any questions. You may also contact Dr. Curt Adams at the Oklahoma Center for Education policy by phone at 918.671.9637 or by email at . Thanks in advance for taking time to share your thoughts with us.

FREE WORKSHOP: MAJOR TRENDS AND
CONCERNS AFFECTING YOUR FINANCES

8:30 a.m. / 4502 East 41st Street, Schusterman Campus,

Learning Center Building, Room 145 (see campus map)

What are trends affecting your finances? Unfortunately, even in well thought out plans there are common mistakes that have devastating financial consequences. This workshop will help you learn what can you do now to avoid those mistakes.

 

The workshop is put on by The Advancement Group and they are the planned giving shop for Bishop Kelley and 54 other non-profit agencies in Tulsa.  They are paid a flat, annual fee by BK so their services are 100% free to you.

Three, lighted 35’ tall flag poles will each display the U.S., Vatican, and Oklahoma flags.  Only about one-fourth of our seniors have made a gift/pledge to date.  Pledge forms can be filled out online or forms can be found in the Main Office or the Advancement Office where your students can see Katherine Devonshire, Director of Alumni Relations.
