Saint of the Day. If it hadn’t been for an elder brother taking him under his wing, Saint Peter Damian may have taken a very different path in life. But with his brother’s guidance, he matured into a holy man, monk, and bishop. A man of prayer and devotion, Saint Peter Damian was also a spiritual writer. Read more

CYO Camp Rancho Framasa in Nashville, Ind., has residential summer camping opportunities for ages 7-19.  Established in 1946 and accredited with the American Camp Association, CYO Camp is an inclusive, residential camp offering three- and six-day sessions. For more information and registration, please go to www.campranchoframasa.org, or pick up a brochure in the Counseling Office.

SENIORS: There are two upcoming free workshops you and a parent can attend this month to help facilitate the FAFSA application for financial aid. One is on College Goal Sunday and will be held at the IUS library from 2-4 p.m. on Sunday, Feb. 25. The other opportunity will be here in our library after school this Thursday, Feb. 22, from 3:15-6 p.m.

Some tips for completing the FAFSA:

  • Use 2016 tax records for school year 2018-19.
  • It’s recommended to use the IRS Data Retrieval Tool to submit tax records.
  • The FAFSA is the required application for all state financial aid programs and grants. In Indiana, students must complete the FAFSA by April 15 to be eligible for state aid.
  • What is Financial Aid? Gift Aid=grants, scholarships, Self-Help Aid=loans, employment. Recommended to start searching and applying for scholarships junior year. FAFSA is the application for grants (money that does not have to be paid back).
  • Expected Family Contribution (EFC): will be the same from school to school, calculated by a federal formula using information provided on FAFSA, amount the government determines a family can reasonably be expected to contribute, is NOT the amount your family will have to pay for college and is NOT the amount of federal aid a family will receive, and IS based on both student and parent contribution and household demographics of size, income, and number of students attending college.
  • Families should log back in to their account to check the status. Processing can take 5-7 days and edits will be allowable after application is processed.
  • Students should list all schools they are applying to on the FAFSA so the school(s) will receive the application in order to potentially make financial aid offers to the student.

SCHOLARSHIP: Rose Island Playhouse

ATHLETIC NEWS

Hi Students of Providence, I first want to thank Trey Miller and Thomas Gaines for taking time after school yesterday to drive up to Bloomington North High School to attend Dive Regionals. Tanner Carver gave us a tremendous lift in sectional points on Saturday by qualifying third for the Dive Regionals.
Using the same dive sheet, Tanner was consistently scoring more points than he did on Saturday, but it wasn’t enough to qualify for state. Simply put, our region has some really experienced divers who could put up some big numbers, and many were back from last year’s regional competing again this year.
Three times yesterday though, other coaches congratulated us on having a new diver make it to regionals. That is not an easy accomplishment and considering he placed higher than a number of good and experienced divers, there’s a lot to say about Tanner’s performance last evening.
Very impressive. Great job! Tanner represented our school very well yesterday. If you see him, congratulate him for a job well done! Many thanks, Coach Pfeiffer

After three tests, the Math Team is still in second place in front of New Albany High School by only 4 points. Every team member is contributing to this close competition. Every point earned counts!  Individual leaders for the year include seniors Kaleb Dunn (2nd) and Nick Stapp (3rd), who are both within 4 points of the current senior leader, and Nikolaus Heiligenberg (11th); juniors Adriel Nacpil (5th), Ross Reyes (12th) and Sam Kruer (13th); sophomores Lauren Stapp (8th), Shelby Wright (10th), and Zoe Libs (11th); and freshmen Grant Dierking (6th), Rosie Kempf (7th), and Allen Kruer (9th). Some of these fantastic students have only taken one of the three tests and are still placing in the top of their respective classes.

ATHLETIC NEWS

Our Swim & Dive Season is still going! Congratulations to Tanner Carver for finishing third in the dive competition. We are off to dive regionals on Tuesday in Bloomington with the top 8 out of 20 advancing to state next Saturday.
Congratulations to Thomas Gaines for completing his first dive season too. Though he didn’t qualify for regionals, his efforts yielded 9 valuable points to our team, the second most for individual performances behind Tanner.
Though this was the guys’ sectional Madison Roehrs also somehow took a dive too!!!
Congrats to Kieran Kelly as well. I emphasize to touch the wall low, and Kieran did this on both Thursday and Saturday. His low touch out-touched the closest competitor on both days, netting him an opportunity to swim on Saturday and moving up from his qualifying spot by simply out-touching his closest competitor to the wall.
Congrats to Nick Katchur for competing well in the 200 IM and the 500 free individual events and bringing home some points.
Congrats to our medley relay team of Logan Applewhite, Kieran Kelly, Nick Katchur and Bryce Drury for setting our season best time on Saturday.
Congrats to our 200 free relay team of Sam LaMaster, Zach Delossantos, Harry Green and Bryce Drury for setting our season best time as well as the fastest time over the past 3 years.
Congrats to our 400 free relay team of Sam LaMaster, Bryce Drury, Harry Green and Nick Katchur for setting the season best time and the fastest time over the past three years as well.

ATHLETIC NEWS

The varsity Boys Basketball team improved to 8-12 Tuesday night by beating Rock Creek 54-45.  Come out support the team and salute your seniors tonight vs. North Harrison. Senior Night starts immediately after the JV game. Hope to see you there.

Hi Providence Students,
Your Supersonic Swim Team and your High Flying Dive Team were “all over it” last night.  The divers’ big meet is Saturday. More on that later. But back to your supersonic swim team.
All three relays qualified to swim on Saturday. Your medley relay team last night consisting of Nick Katchur, Kieran Kelly, Sam Caylor, and Logan Applewhite swam a near record time, and this is the first time this group has swam this relay. Great job, guys. I was like, “These dudes flew!”
However, the first individual event, the 200 free, saw a combined drop of time of 48 seconds. That’s crazy!!! Insane! Aiden Jewell went from a personal best of 3:33.93 to 3:09.56. Dang!!!!  Alex Rouselle? How about from a 3:03.30 to 2:44.38–and he did it with a goggle full of water.  Whew!!! And Trey Miller took his 3:14.07 and sliced it down to 3:09.33.  Congrats, guys! Super job!!!
In the 200 IM, Logan Applewhite and Kieran Kelly both set personal bests, and Nick Katchur rocketed through to qualify as an individual to swim on Saturday’s championship day. Awesome job, guys
In the 50 free, Zach De Los Santos and Bryce Drury set their personal marks in a very, very fast event with Harry Green barely, barely missing a personal best mark. Great time, guys.
In the 100 fly, possibly the hardest event, Sam Caylor also lowered his best time ever!  Great, great swim, Sam!!
In the 100 free, Zach Kaiser took a hacksaw to his old time of 1:20.13 and sawed it down to 1:11.28. Great way to end your high school swimming career — going out on top!
Zack De Los Santos also PR’d in the 100 free (awesome job) and for a really huge congrats, Sam LaMaster, who has been flirting with going under a minute for most of the season, finally busted that barrier with a very nice :59.64 time. Whoop it up!! Great job all three of you!!!
In the 500 free, Nick Katchur qualified to swim on Saturday with a personal best showing. Considering how fast the competition was, he needed to haul out his best time. Great job, Nick!
Our 200 free relay team of Sam LamMaster, Harry Green, Zach De Los Santos and Bryce Drury knocked 3 seconds off our team’s best time this year with Bryce turning in the best time in years for us in a 50 split, 24.81. Another awesome job, guys!
In the 100 back, Alex Perkinson won his heat and dropped 5 seconds off his best time, and Zach Aurillio swam very well too!  Great job!!
In the 100 breaststroke, Alex Rousselle set his PR by a second. Way to go! But Kieran Kelly’s best ever effort, a 1:15.46 put him in the individual race on Saturday. Great job, Kieran! Logan Applewhite also turned in a very good time too! Great job, guys!!
And lastly, your 400 free relay team of Sam LaMaster, Nick Katchur, Harry Green and Bryce Drury qualified for Saturday.
Finally, the ladies nearly doubled their score from last year to this year and set a bar high. Can the guys replicate the ladies showing? Come on out to Highland Hills on Saturday to find out. Dive Sectionals begin at 9:00 a.m., and swim begins at 1:00 p.m. Should be a great day.
Rarely do we see so many personal bests in one meet. This was crazy good! Awesome job, guys!  Really good job.
Many thanks, Coaches Jim Pfeiffer, Kitty Cline, and Philip Middleton

COUNSELORS’ CORNER

National School Counseling Week: Today’s message is about tapping into your network to reach your dreams. Music star Katy Perry once said, “It takes a village to make me who I am.” This simple quote has a lot of depth. Each one of us has a village. Your village consists of your classmates, friends, family, teachers, coaches, and others who surround you each day. Your village can help you become who you want to be. Your village is your network. Sometimes when we share our dreams and goals with our village, they can provide much needed support to help us achieve them. If you’ve set a goal to increase your grade in a class, maybe discuss your goal with your teacher. He/she could provide you with strategies to help you accomplish what you’ve set out to do. Who do you trust in your village to help you with your dreams? Who could be a resource and help you along your path to achieving your goals? Give this some thought and come see your counselors if you want to chat. Make today count!

COUNSELORS’ CORNER

As part of National School Counseling Week, we would like to begin today’s message with a quote from Eleanor Roosevelt. She once said, “The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams.” What can you do to achieve your dreams? Work hard? Sure? Write down your dream on paper so you can see it every day? Of course. But there is one simple thing you must do in order to achieve your dreams – set goals. Goals, similar to dreams, are things that you aspire to do. You can have a goal to get a certain grade in your most challenging class. You can have a goal to create a time management plan for tackling your homework after school.

Madison Roehrs advanced out of Diving Sectionals last weekend and headed to one of two regionals for state diving. At Bloomington North High School, our sectional qualifiers ran into some very stiff competition from 4 other sectionals with Madison finishing 14th. We can’t say for sure, but she probably finished the highest of first time divers at this regional, so congrats to Madison for giving great effort against some very fine competition.
I also want to thank Tanner Carver and Thomas Gaines for coming up last evening to support Madison. You two definitely provided some great support and once you arrived, her scores started to climb.
I also want to thank Coach Kitty Cline for all of her help with the divers this year. It’s been a long time since we had a diver qualify into Regionals, and the competition is very tough at that level.
Also, please congratulate Madison as she is the new school record holder in the ladies 6 and 11 dive competition!!!  To get those records having never dove before this year preaches to the dedication and time spent learning this sport.

Your supersonic Boys Swim & Dive team was at it again Monday night at Seymour High School. Did the Pioneers shoot the Owls out of the sky that night?  No, not quite, but we did receive some stellar performances with individual records.
Our 200 Medley “A” team of Harry Green, Kieran Kelly, Nick Katchur and Bryce Drury continued their assault on the relay time, lowering it by a couple more seconds.
But the big shout out goes to Brogan “Put Me in Coach I’m READY to SWIM” Welch, who, when finding out that Sam Caylor was sick and we needed someone to swim the butterfly in one of our other two relays as we’re driving up, he said, “I’ll do it!!!”  I thought he was downright crazy. “You sure about that?” “Heck yeah!!!” Okay…..surely he’s going to come up to me and ask me to pull him. Nope! Off he goes. And dang, he did it. Awesome job!!! Wow! That’s all I can say. Well no, I can say more. The fly is the hardest physically of the 4 strokes. It can drain you, especially if you are new at it. If you don’t get your elbows up, you DQ. Got through it. I am so impressed. Great job, Brogan. You rock!
Others who took an axe to their previous best times include Ethan Fulkerson in the 50 free, Thomas Gaines in the 6 dive competition, Nick Katchur in the IM, Alex Rousselle in the 100 breast, Alex Perkinson in the 100 back and Taylor Hensley in the 6 dive competition.
Speaking of Taylor and Thomas, the improvement we have seen in their diving is insane. These two guys had never dove before this year and with all the back crushing splats they’ve had in practice, I am sometimes amazed that they are in one piece. But they looked graceful, on point and tactically sound on their dives Monday night, and they scored the most amount of points ever.
So tell your swim team guys, “Great meet Monday night!” Next up:  Sectionals next Thursday at Highland Hills
