November 13, 1987 The Message -- for Catholics of Southwestern Indiana 3 ,0000dmission policy.__.00 Ft. Kuper presents guidelines to Evansville Catholic High School Board By MARY ANN HUGHES Message Staff Writer Proposals for an admission policy for the two Evansville Catholic high schools were presented to the Evansville Catholic High School Board at its November meeting. Father Raymond Kuper, director of Catholic Education for the Diocese of Evansville, presented the proposals to the board for their consideration. No vote was taken. They included the following: Faarollment priority: ,i- Students of Evansville- area parishes with siblings already enrolled. -- Students of Evansville- area parishes. -- Students of other parishes outside the Evansville area with siblings already enrolled. -- Students of other parishes outside the Evansville area. -- Non-Catholic students with siblings already enrolled. -- Non-Catholic students. Enrollment Date: -- The enrollment process 'must be completed by July 1, with a good faith down payment. -- Only those students whose family is moving to Evansville will be enrolled after July 1. Tuition Discount: -- If all tuition and fees are paid in full with the start of the school year, parents will receive a five percent discount. -- If half of all tuition and fees are paid by the start of the school year, parents will receive a three percent discount. Father Kuper also informed the board that the Catholic Education Foundation endow- ment income is projected to be down by a half of a percentage point for the 1987-88 year because of the recent plunge in the stock market. In 1986-87, the CEF endow- ment income was $183,022 or seven-and-a-half percent of the total income of the Evansville Catholic School Board's annual budget. This coming year, the endowment income is projected to be $176,000 or seven percent of the total ECHS board income. Father Kuper proposed holding a joint meeting with ECHS school board members, members of the Catholic Educa- tion Foundation, and board members of both Evansville high school alumni associations. In other board business, it was proposed that board members from both the Washington Catholic High School board and the Vincen- nes board be invited to attend the ECHS board's annual retreat in January.

Ellert MD students offer time to parishes By MARY ANN HUGHES Message Staff Writer A Stewardship program focusing on church and com- munity has been started at Mater Dei High School, Evansville, according to Walter Bowman, principal. The program is linked to the school's senior religion pro- gram, with students volunteer- ing their time to the community and to their parishes. "There is a minimum re- quirement of 18 hours of ser- vice," Bowman said. "The students must volunteer this time as part of the requirements for their religion grade." The students can sing in the church choir, tutor or clean the church as part of the volunteer program. "Any type of service -- it depends on the parish," Bowman said. "The students don't have to come up with a project," he said, but they are required to of- fer their services to their parishes. "They are supposed to get active in the parish and commit themselves." The volunteering will be done during second and third quarters. "We are excited about this opportunity to strengthen the bond between the students and their parishes," Bowman said. ,, CHRISTMAS .......
