Cathedral has establishedaConcussionManagementPolicy, whichour AthleticTrainer Mike Hunker wishesto be made publicto parents of all of our students. Concussion Management Policy Cathedral High School The recognitionand treatment ofathleteswho have suffereda concussionhas become a national priority.As a result of an increasingnumber of studiesthat have revealedthat concussions,not properlytreated, can result inpermanent mental difficulties. The dataalso suggeststhatconcussionscan leadtothe developmentof dementiaearlierthan expectedandhasledtomandatesbythe National Federationof HighSchools(NFHS),NCAA andthe NFL.The NFHS mandatedrule states“Effective withthe 2010 highschool season,anyplayerwhoshowssigns,symptomsorbehaviors associatedwithaconcussionmustbe removedfromthe game and shall notreturnto playuntil clearedbyan appropriate health-care professional”.
  7. 7. 7 Recoveryfroma concussionrequireslimitationof physical activity,especiallysportsactivitysuchaspractice,drills, games,andat timesevenphysical educationclasses.Insignificantlysymptomaticathletes,mental activityshould alsobe limitedtoallowthe braintoheal.These activitiesmayincludelimitingassignments,allowinggreatertime tocomplete quizzesandtestsor assignmentsandlesshomework.SuchactivitiesaswatchingTV,texting,andvideogamesmayalso slowthe recoveryfromthe concussion.

Pleasecontact: KathleenMiller@317.257.3051 Barbara Hasbrook@ 317.848.9590 From Abdul’s blog: I am in the unique position of being someone who is an opinion writer, but uses traditional journalism techniques to gather information. Yes, I do have an agenda. That agenda usually includes promoting economic growth, quality education, personal freedom and law and order. And I see the world through that filter. Now I am not so narcissistic so as not to acknowledge other points of view. If I did, I’d simply never take a phone call on the morning show and turn the comment section off on this blog and that would be the end of the discussion.

I, the Lord, will be their God.” Ez 34:11, 23-24. This scripture reminds us that our core being rests in God. And, it is also our call to serve our fellow mankind, as sheep in God’s care. In November, sophomores will be helping serve our popular spaghetti dinner to the Lord’s Pantry members on Wednesday, November 10 from 3:30-7:15 PM. You may also join our outreach on Saturday, Nov 13, 10:00-1:30, when juniors will be serving up a fabulous lunch for the Saturday noon meal at the Cathedral Soup Kitchen. Freshmen will begin helping at the Catholic Charities Christmas Store on Nov 18 and 19.
  18. 18. 18 Details on all of these on-going class service projects are noted below in Service Opportunities as wonderful expressions of giving and grace. Greatly Successful November Canned Food Drive for Nov 1-5 As a schoolwide drive, the Student Council vigorously led us in collecting over 28,000 cans (over 11,000 cans and more than $5,500 in cash which will be used for additional canned goods.) These donations have benefitted Gleaners, the Catholic Charities Crisis Center,Holy Cross Thanksgiving /Christmas food baskets and St. Vincent De Paul. All of these food agencies expressed their grateful appreciation for the strong and vigorous food drive, as they participated in our Service Festival yesterday. Nov 9 Service Festival Yesterday,all of our Cathedral students participated in a school wide Service Festival for a little over an hour which comprised of a large service assembly and then small breakout classroom sessions. Students who have worked with specific agency outreaches also served as student ambassadors to facilitate these breakout classroom sessions. More than forty five agencies were here representing not-for- profit efforts actively engaged all over Indianapolis. Two students groups also presented their service initiatives that they are currently launching for NOLA (Support for Lower Ninth Ward needs derived from the recently completed New Orleans Mission trip) and MAKE IT MINE (a reading outreach for IPS middle school students to be held on Saturday Dec 4 and Saturday Feb 26. The messages learned were many but primarily addressed our humanitarian and Christian call to serve others and the importance upon acting upon our inspiration to help. After the Service Festival, the service agency leaders met at Fatima Retreat Center for an invigorating luncheon where they heard inspiring speaker Mr. Tim Streett from Shepherd Communities address his talk “Be Not Afraid During Challenging Times.” More than eight Cathedral alumni at various agencies were involved in this day, including our main speaker,Mr. Tom Egold. Warm thanks are extended for extensive support from many on our day: our Cathedralmothers graciously guiding our representatives to their individual classrooms, our IT staff assisting technology problems, our faculty for genuinely welcoming our classroom speakers,our students ambassadors for assistance to the various agencies, and our great Cathedral hearts committed to serve. Reminder: Save Your Coats and Jeans For The Homeless We will have our annual coat and warm clothes drive for the homeless during next week on November 16-17. We will collect before school on the circle in the morning and students may earn a service hour for their donations/help. Severalagencies assisting homeless needs in Indianapolis who participated at our Service Festival and expressed their need and appreciation for pants (jeans) and coats,/gloves,/mittens, were Beggars For the Poor, Horizon House, Wheeler Mission, Cathedral Soup Kitchen and CHIP (Coalition for Homelessness Intervention and Prevention). So clean out your closets of any warm clothing which can be well used to keep adults warm who reside on the cold nights and streets. “Make It Mine” Service Outreach Cathedralstudents are leading the way planning a service outreach for 200 IPS middle school students in our community. We are coordinating a special day of events combining reading, athletics and other passions such as art,music and dance which will be held at the University of Indianapolis. The theme for this day is “MAKE IT MINE”. Our next meeting is Sunday, Nov 14 at 12:30 PM in room 3304 (Mr. Payne’s room). Please email Jasmine Whitaker, Imani Parker-Robinson, or Mrs. Halstead (chalstead@cathedral-irish.org) with your interest..

Meditation:Luke 17:11-19 “Your faith has saved you.” (Luke 17:19) Imagine yourself as the Samaritan in today’s Gospel. A victim of Hansen’s Disease – leprosy - you are an outcast. Out of concern for public health and ritual purity, you have to live outside the city, away from your family (Numbers 5:2-3). Your face is deformed and left partially paralyzed. Perhaps a couple of fingers or even a hand has had to be amputated. Maybe your feet are starting to get deformed, making it hard to walk. The stench of the ulcers on your body causes people to be repelled by you. As you walk the streets, you warn people to keep away from you: “Unclean, unclean!” (Leviticus 13:45). There is no cure for your disease. You are condemned to a life of misery and decay. But then you meet Jesus. You cry out to him, and he sends you to the priests. As you believe and begin to walk, one of your companions turns and says: “Your sores are gone! Your skin is so smooth and clear! You’ve been healed!” You look down at your hands and feel your face, and joy envelops your heart. Amazed and grateful, you run back to Jesus, throw yourself at his feet, and worship him. This story tells us what Jesus is looking for from all of us. Every time our faith is increased or our prayers are answered, he wants us to turn to him in thanksgiving and worship. Why? Because he loves being praised? Not at all. Rather, it’s because he knows that when we come to him in worship, our faith is built up even more. Every time we praise and thank him for his marvelous deeds in our lives, our hearts are softened even more, and we become even more open to his word, his work, and his love. So today, take some time to write down the most grace-filled moments you have experienced in your walk with the Lord. Where have you seen God work the most powerfully? Meditate on these events and let them move you to worship. Give yourself to the Lord in a deeper surrender so that he can take you even further in your faith. “Lord, with all my heart I sing your praises. Thank you for turning my mourning into dancing and my tears into laughter.” - The Word Among Us Blessings, Principal
