Amy Funk - Educator of the Year!

Congratulations, Mrs. Funk!  Amy Funk, kindergarten teacher at SBCS for the past 14 years, was recognized as the Rotary Teacher of the Year last week!  Mrs. Funk was surprised at a recent assembly where students cheered for the teacher who help them learn that letters make words and words make sentences!  Teachers and staff members who nominated Mrs. Funk cited her patience, compassion,  creativity, and commitment to the teaching profession. 

Catholic School Week 2015

Kickin’ Off Catholic School Week with Pancakes!


St. Benedict Catholic School joins Catholic schools across the country in celebrating the uniqueness of our schools. The National Catholic Education Association (NCEA) has declared this year's theme to be "Catholic Schools - Communities of Faith, Knowledge, and Service."

St. Benedict Catholic School invites the Atchison community to its kick-off event, a Pancake Breakfast, on Sunday, January 25, serving 8:00 a.m. - Noon.  Pancakes, eggs, sausage, juice, milk, and coffee will be on the menu for $4.00 per plate.  Also available will be a display of books for children and families from JClub, a Catholic Book Fair.

The faculty of SBCS has planned many special activities for students to enjoy throughout the week. NCEA sites a dozen reasons for choosing Catholic education, including a balanced academic curriculum integrating faith, culture, and life and partnering with parents in the faith formation of their children. The staff of SBCS, however, has come up with S’MORE reasons to attend SBCS, including a special “s’more” treat during the week!  Activities will include service project for Catholic Charities, monster feet and movie day, family lunch, saints scavenger hunt, occupation/vocation panel, “Created for Greatness” retreat, relays with prayer partners, and an all school Mass on Friday.

St. Benedict Catholic School currently has PreK – 8th grade enrollment of 234 students. For more information, contact Diane Liebsch, principal, 367-3503.

Congratulations, Junior Fire Chiefs!

Congratulations, Junior Fire Chiefs!

The 4th grade completed their Junior Fire Marshall program yesterday. After the four-week experience and completion of many tasks, there was a three-way tie for the top honors!  Enjoying  a ride in the bucket on the ladder fire truck, rising 100 feet above the parking lot, were Junior Fire Chiefs Grace R, Jason C, and Mark H.  Assistant Fire Chief, Scarlett B,  enjoyed the ride as well.  A tip of the Raven Wing  to every 4th grader who completed the program and to their teacher, Mrs. Ronnebaum!
