FROM THE SFCS BOARD CHAIRMAN Living Stones. I have heard and used these words many times over the past few years. To whom are we referring when we think of the Sioux Falls Catholic Schools’ ‘Living Stones’? Many come to mind, with the primary focus being our students, children and our great Cornerstone, Jesus Christ. The rest of us basically fall into the Living Stones categories of parents and family, faculty, staff and administration, volunteers, supporters and contributors. As you will see in this annual report, each of us is vitally important to the success of our mission. Whether you are family members of current or former students, whether your active life’s work has brought you to serve as faculty or support staff in our schools, or whether your passion and calling is to support the mission and values through your time, talent or treasures, you are called to be part of this mission — to be a Living Stone — to help us as we form a community of faith and learning by promoting a Catholic way of life through Gospel values and academic excellence. Our system’s success absolutely depends on you, and we are so fortunate to have you, your involvement and your support! The element that pulled my family to the Sioux Falls Catholic Schools, much more so than even the academic excellence that is achieved, is the community of faith. We all know how formative the years spent as a student are to the rest of each child’s journey. Knowing that each child entrusted to us is surrounded with examples of Christ-like living as each of them travel that path for themselves is rewarding and inspiring. The formation of the lives of our students is the guiding factor of every decision made by our school system and, with your continued involvement and support, it will continue to be the guiding factor indefinitely. Our system is alive with Living Stones and, together, we are helping great lives grow in incredible ways. Thank you for all that you continue to do to make this possible! May God bless you all abundantly,
Mike Jaspers SFCS Board Chairman
FROM THE BISHOP OF THE SIOUX FALLS DIOCESE Dear Parents, Alumni and Friends of SFCS, Our children are a most treasured gift. It is our Baptismal responsibility to educate them in the faith. We know how important our Catholic schools are to the Church as well. Here in Sioux Falls, we are blessed to have eight vibrant Catholic schools which provide a ‘community of faith and excellence’ where Gospel values are integrated into lessons and activities every day. Living in a world of increasing unrest, it is even more important that our students feel safe and loved — safe in a community of people who are invested in them and their well-being, safe to express their faith and their values. One expression of their faith that affects many is these students having the opportunity to learn to serve others through Christian service projects throughout the year, as well as learning that Christian service is a way of life. We will all be enriched by this important lesson as they graduate and become active adult members of our parishes and community. Your support of the Sioux Falls Catholic Schools makes a Catholic education available, accessible and affordable to Catholic parents and their children, regardless of financial status. Your financial assistance also aids efforts to increase salaries for SFCS teachers. Work continues in this important task so that we might pay our teachers a just salary and, in so doing, honor their extraordinary sacrifice and commitment to our students and families. Thank you for your generosity and love for our students, teachers and families. May God bless you and your families for your support and prayers. Yours in Christ, Most Reverend Paul J. Swain Bishop of Sioux Falls
FROM THE PRESIDENT Dear Friends, Parents and Alumni, Itâ€™s impossible to look at the past year without reflecting on all the people who helped make it successful. Our excellence occurs in the areas of faith, academics and activities. Whether celebrating the ordination of graduates, participating in service events that promote Catholic values or cheering on our students performing on stage or in the athletic arena, we strive for excellence. An example of utilizing our God-given talent is through the academic excellence that occurs within our schools. Each year our schools, staff and students are challenged to improve upon what they have done the year before. A task that is easier said than done! However, our students continue to raise the bar and meet the expectations we set forth before them. We are incredibly proud of our students and the many outstanding accomplishments they receive. Whether we are talking about receiving a Superior rating with our State One-Act play or promoting Students for Life, these opportunities are made possible through the talents of our students, the outstanding leadership of our teachers and the support of our parents and benefactors. So many of you understand that your investment today helps us build a stronger future for the students in Catholic schools. That is why we take this opportunity to thank you for your investment in the 2600 students of the Sioux Falls Catholic Schools. It is amazing what your generosity has accomplished. Please keep us in your daily prayers, as you are in ours. May God continue to bless you and your family.

FROM THE DIRECTOR OF DEVELOPMENT When I go around to our schools or meet with people in our community, I’m often asked, “What is a development office? What do they do?” Our primary focus is raising dollars for our schools, teachers and tuition assistance. We also work very hard to develop community within our schools. This is done through a number of events and campaigns throughout the year. Some of the larger events you may have been to include Dakota Bowl, Extravaganza, Golf Classic or Shamrock Run. Some of our campaigns include the SFCS Annual Appeal, the 10x12 Alumni Giving Program and our Go Give O’G Day, which is a day set aside to ask our alumni from across the country and around the world to contribute to tuition assistance. One of the reasons we were able to raise nearly $900,000 this year is because of the many volunteers who gave of their time to help. From Dakota Bowl committee members to auction chairs to people setting up for events or moving “You’ve Been Knighted” signs, it truly takes a village to raise the kind of funds needed to keep our schools operating and be able to award the tuition assistance dollars needed to help some of our families. We were blessed to have volunteers from all eight of our schools helping at our events. No matter what school your children attend, know that YOU are invited to volunteer at these events. It’s a great opportunity to make new friends and help our schools at the same time. Please feel free to email me at: firstname.lastname@example.org for more information. Thank you to all of you for your support of our schools and GO KNIGHTS!

When Alisha and Adelyn Mueller got sick in early February, it wasn’t a huge deal. With six children and one on the way, parents Rachel and Matt have seen lots of sick kids over the years. But while Adelyn got better, Alisha got sicker. Her temps were spiking near 105 degrees. After two days of calling back and forth to their doctor’s office and watching her very closely, Rachel was headed to the ER with Alisha, whose limbs had gone limp and who was struggling to breathe. While doctors were working on her daughter, Rachel grabbed her phone and called for backup and prayers from family members and Fr. Richard Fox, pastor of their parish of Christ the King. “He was there in five minutes and immediately anointed her,” says Rachel. He then contacted his parish staff and CTK principal Julie Kolbeck with the urgent message: get those kids praying. “Mrs. Kolbeck stopped everything and got all of the students over to the church and they did a whole rosary for Alisha.” Doctors quickly discovered Alisha had pneumonia and a strep infection in her blood that sent her into cardiac arrest shortly after their arrival at the hospital. Doctors performed CPR on her for over an hour. Alisha was placed on an ECMO machine (which functioned as her heart and lungs) and eventually airlifted to a Minneapolis hospital. There were incredibly scary days — with evidence of bleeding on the brain, strokes and her lungs were full of fluid. They weren’t sure she’d survive. They had everyone they knew, and many more who they didn’t know, offering prayers for them. Finally, Alisha turned the corner and they saw improvement overall. However, there had been damage to her extremities. Blood flow had been limited
and tissue was damaged to the point where Alisha had to undergo two surgeries to amputate her lower leg, then above the knee. Tough stuff for a young girl. A special visit from contemporary Christian artist Matt Maher — who happened to be in Minneapolis the day Alisha had the amputation — brought a much-needed boost. The family says “Someone who knew someone who knew someone’ contacted Maher, who just happened to be in Minneapolis and had a window of time open, which just happened to be right after Alisha had come out of anesthesia,” says her dad, Matt. Maher walked into her hospital room, sang songs to her and prayed with the family. It was a bright spot in what had been weeks of struggles for the Mueller family. Their family listens to a lot of Christian music, including Maher’s, so this was an incredible gift. More gifts came to the family courtesy of the Muellers’ Christ the King parish and school community, as well as the greater Sioux Falls Catholic Schools community. Groups rallied to help the family through prayer and monetary support. The Christ the King Knights of Columbus had planned their first-ever fish fry, but decided to turn it into a fundraiser for the family. St. Lambert Knights came to help and quickly pointed out that they were ‘going to need a lot more fish.’ Word spread amongst the Catholic community and groups from all over the city came to eat and donate. The O’Gorman basketball team came after their practice. An event that organizers initially hoped would bring in 100 people raised more than $14,000. Christ the King School had wristbands made and sold them, bringing in nearly $4,000. Students in Alisha’s class made a prayer tie blanket for her in the school colors, saying prayers for their classmate and friend with every tie they made. Students and staff at the school said
countless prayers and made a large spiritual bouquet for her. St. Mary School (where Alisha’s aunt teaches) held a dress down day and raised nearly $4,000. St. Katharine Drexel Knights also did a fish fry, and Holy Spirit Parish sent a donation to help the family. Meal trains were set up so the family didn’t have to worry about dinner each night. People just showed up every time it snowed to make sure that the Muellers’ driveway and sidewalks were cleared. The blessings for their family went on and on. “People just offered so much!” “The Catholic community has been amazingly supportive,’ says Matt. “Not surprisingly, but overwhelmingly. We’re very humbled to say the least. And very appreciative,” says Rachel. “Neither one of us is from here (Sioux Falls) originally. We’re both from small towns and had concerns moving to the ‘big city’, but we experienced a real small-town ‘feel’ and sense of community when we went to our first Dakota Bowl,” says Matt. Now that they’ve faced the biggest challenge ever as a family, the Muellers say they are even more grateful for the true sense of family they have experienced with the SFCS and Catholic communities.
Alisha still has a very long road ahead, but is now back home. She was recently fitted for a prosthetic leg and hopes to be running around with her friends soon. Her kidneys are not yet functioning and doctors are considering a transplant. She is blind in one eye due to her optic nerve being damaged while they were performing CPR on her, but the family is so grateful she is HERE with them and back to her old self for the most part. They are also extremely grateful for the prayers offered for their family and know that their faith and this SFCS community is what got them through the toughest of times.

A MESSAGE FROM THE SFCS FOUNDATION While preparing the message from the SFCS Foundation, I couldn’t help but see the gentle reminders from one of Sioux Falls Catholic Schools’ biggest champions who passed away this year…. Fr. Al Krzyzopolski. His amazing picture from last year’s Annual Report kept smiling at me, and the reminder for his birthday came up on my calendar. Fr. Al taught at O’Gorman High School in the early years, served at various parishes in Sioux Falls with elementary schools, worked on numerous campaigns and helped form the system that we know today as the Sioux Falls Catholic Schools. I keep hearing his message that he gave while talking with Foundation Members about the efforts to increase our teachers’ salaries. He gave a great history of how his work as a pastor and educator changed through the years as our schools went from mostly the Religious teaching to almost ALL lay people teaching. He wondered why we thought that Catholic school teachers should be paid less when we expect them to do more. His passion for teaching and the importance of infusing Christ in our children’s school day was more than evident. Fr. Al also told me that if he was going to speak about the importance of this topic, he must be willing to support it himself. So, he established the Fr. Al Krzyzopolski Education Endowment in support of our staff. With his typical humor, he asked me not to have him speak at any more events because it cost him too much money! Many of you contributed to his endowment in his memory this year as he left us for a much better place. There is a long list of names of people that were touched by Fr. Al listed in this publication…. and many more things done on his behalf that we will never know about. I am lucky enough to have some of Fr. Al’s thoughts in writing, and so I close with this. One of his messages was how God would speak to us…. but I like to think that this is coming from Fr. Al now. “What a future I have in store for you. I look forward to seeing you one day in my home in heaven. You will be surprised at all that I have waiting for you. Meanwhile, enjoy the earth and think of me often as you journey through life.”

Bishop Paul J. Swain Bishop Paul J. Swain was born on September 12, 1943 in Newark, NY, as one of six children. He attended Ohio Northern University, earning a degree in history. In 1967 he earned a Masters in political science from the University of Wisconsin. He served in the U.S. Air Force as an Intelligence Officer, including service in Vietnam where he earned a Bronze Star. After military service, he returned to Madison and the University of Wisconsin to complete his studies in law. After earning a law degree in 1975, he practiced law in Madison until becoming involved in the campaign and administration of Wisconsin’s Governor Lee Sherman Dreyfus where he served as legal counsel and director of policy. Near the end of his service to Governor Dreyfus’ gubernatorial administration, the first thoughts of a vocation to the priesthood came to Swain. Since he wasn’t Catholic this seemed unusual, but he took it as a prompting to take his faith more seriously. Private reading and studying and attendance at Mass led to more formal instruction and, ultimately, full reception into the Catholic Church in 1983. The thought of the priesthood remained. Thus to explore his priestly vocation, he began studies for priestly formation at Blessed John XXIII National Seminary in Weston, MA. He was ordained as a priest of the Diocese of Madison on May 27, 1988. Upon his ordination to the priesthood, Father Swain served in a number of parishes in the Diocese of Madison and was also appointed Vocations Director and Vicar General. In 2006, Pope Benedict XVI appointed Paul J. Swain as the eighth bishop of Sioux Falls. The Diocese of Sioux Falls is comprised of the counties in South Dakota east of the Missouri River, some 35,000 square miles of territory. Nearly 120,000 Catholics live among the total population of over 550,000. We are grateful to Bishop Swain for his leadership in our diocese.

Fr. Kristopher Cowles
Originally from Yankton, Kristopher Cowles said he remembers feeling a call to the priesthood somewhere around 1st grade. However, as he got older, he wanted a ‘normal’ life - to be married and have a family, work as an engineer. He went to the SD School of Mines & Technology to study engineering. While there, he started spending time at the Newman Center. “The odds of meeting a nice Catholic girl are greater there (Newman Center) than in the general SDSMT population. And they had good food there,” he says with a chuckle. But it was there that he really began to discover his faith for the first time. “I went on my first retreat and encountered God in a personal and profound way,” says Fr. Cowles. After that, he spent more time in Bible studies and attending Holy Hours that included adoration along with praise and worship music. He was no longer attending just to meet girls, but because he was being changed. While attending a FOCUS conference in Denver, he prayed that his life would be different that following Lent, and it was. “During Lent, I prayed the rosary every night and the Lord began to change my heart.” At the end of Lent, he visited seminaries and everything felt right. In spite of not feeling worthy to be a priest (a self-described math geek and nerd who read comic books for fun) priest mentors encouraged him. Cowles kept focusing on what he’d be giving up if he became a priest. Finally, someone told him that if that’s where God wanted him to be, he’d find true happiness. “I wanted to be where God wanted me to be because that’s where I would find joy,” says Fr. Cowles. Cowles was ordained in 2011. After serving in Pierre, SD for his first three years as a priest, he was asked to learn Spanish for future ministry. He spent two months in Mexico before a short stint at St Michael’s. In the Spring of 2015, he began serving as pastor of OLG. “My Spanish was horrible,” he confesses. Arriving right after Ash Wednesday, he had to prepare kids for 1st Communion and prepare for Lenten liturgies and Holy Week — about the busiest week in the life of a parish priest. “The people were incredibly patient.” Fr. Cowles is more confident in his Spanish skills now and enjoys the Hispanic community. “They are one of the most warm and loving communities I could imagine. They also have really good food and are always looking for an excuse to gather.” In addition to his work with the OLG parish, Fr. Cowles spends time with the students at St. Lambert School, a number of whom are members of his parish. “If I’m having a horrible day, all I have to do is walk into that building and my day is 100% better.” Cowles says he loves spending time sharing stories and parables from the bible. “When I share those stories, light bulbs go off in their minds. It’s incredible. There’s a high that goes with that.” He also likes to hang with the kids — on the playground or in the gym. He’s been known to participate in the Pacer test. “The moment you play tag with them or run the Pacer test, they realize priests are human, too, and that maybe one day they could become a priest, too.” Thanks for sharing your time and your faith with our families, Fr. Cowles!

Hal Wick - A Lifetime of Advocacy March 8, 2018, the Sioux Falls Catholic Schools lost one of its biggest cheerleaders and advocates. Hal Wick, who graduated in the very first class at O’Gorman, was a longtime supporter of the Sioux Falls Catholic Schools. He was also a legislator who tirelessly advocated to try to get the State to help students who cannot afford the full cost of a private education. “He was always concerned about Catholic education,” says Hal’s widow, Jane. “He was always planning for the future.” Hal was a numbers kind of guy. He found ways to raise money. He convinced a nun who was an art teacher to paint pictures for a calendar and sold them to raise money for Christ the King School. His daughter says he was always aware of the underdog and those who didn’t have the means to attend. “He wanted to help. What can we do? he’d ask,” says Anne Wick Nelson. “Hal worked so hard for Christ the King School tuition assistance,” says Jane. He helped raise money, but he also gave of his own means. He started the Fr. Foley Fund to help families who live outside of Sioux Falls because of the extra expense of paying for gas. He wanted to keep kids in the Catholic Schools. When SFCS started the Certificate Program (now called the Gift Card Program), he jumped on the bandwagon, finding families in need and directing his rebates to them. “It’s about taking care of kids. Dad was so proud of Christ the King School. He was so interested in what was going on there and the future of the school,” says Anne. And that passion extended to the entire SFCS system. “He wasn’t afraid to ask for anything from anyone if it benefited the Catholic Schools.” As an airline pilot, he flew all around the world and for years, he would make sure to pick up specialty cheeses to auction off at SFCS events. Just one more of the many little things he did to help raise money for our schools. On the legislative end, he worked for decades in hopes of getting statewide school vouchers. While that effort has been unsuccessful to date, some progress was made with the South Dakota Tax Credit Scholarship Program. This is an incredible program that is patterned after many throughout the country where insurance companies can donate to a scholarship granting organization which provides assistance to kids who qualify to attend the school of their choice. The insurance companies receive a tax rebate as a result. Hal was so pleased to see this progress because it helps ALL families have a choice about what school will be the best for their children. Hal and Jane sent all of their children through the Catholic schools here and were able to watch a number of their grandchildren go through the schools and graduate as well. In fact, Hal was very proud of the fact that his eldest granddaughter was likely the first third-generation O’Gorman graduate, and delighted in the fact that, for a time, her picture hung across from his class in the hallway at O’Gorman. Hal’s efforts to promote and support Catholic education and SFCS will be felt for generations. He is no doubt bending someone’s ear in heaven, telling them about the excellent schools and staff we have at SFCS.

Stacy Charron earned both her BS in Elementary Education (2003) and MA in Education & Administration at Northern State University (2005). Her teaching career began in 2003 at Lincoln Elementary in Aberdeen, SD, where she taught 5th grade for seven years and coached volleyball at the varsity level for Aberdeen Central. In 2010, her husband, Wade, was offered a position at O’Gorman Junior High as principal. The Charrons moved to Sioux Falls, and Stacy was offered a position teaching 6th grade at Christ the King. She also coached volleyball at the freshman level for O’Gorman. Charron says it was an easy transition from Aberdeen to the new community. “The welcome we received by current staff and parish priests was overwhelming. It was apparent from the start that being a part of SFCS was something special and that feeling has never dwindled. Each day I come to work, I am reminded how fortunate I am to be working with families, students and staff dedicated to the education of the whole person, while living out the Gospel values.” In 2015, Stacy accepted a principal position at St. Katharine Drexel Elementary. She says she and her staff work hard to create an environment in their school where students feel safe and where respect is paramount. “We are always striving to improve and be the best we can be academically, socially and spiritually. Our goal is to ‘Be Like a Knight’ each and every day.” Parents whose children attend St. Katharine Drexel appreciate the strong sense of community that Charron has helped build. “Their involvement has been a key component to the success of our students. Our parents’ continued support of the SKD teachers and staff aides in building a consistent atmosphere that fosters student learning and growth. Our teachers and staff excel at creating a culture of learning and respect. Each day they are committed to meeting the SFCS mission. Walking through the halls and rooms, it is evident that students are engaged in the learning process while at the same time being formed spiritually and socially.” Charron says she is very grateful for the support of the people of St. Katharine Drexel Parish as well. “There are countless volunteers who take time to help in various capacities: grandparent program, student assistance, building work/maintenance, grounds keeping, as well as all of the daily prayers offered up for our students and staff.” Stacy and Wade have three active children: Spencer (5th grade), Tanner (3rd) and Brynnley (Kindergarten). We are blessed by their decision to move to Sioux Falls back in 2010!

CUMULATIVE GIVING - SFCS FOUNDATION LEGACY SOCIETY EDUCATOR LEVEL
Male teachers are not unusual at O’Gorman Jr. High or High School. They are a bit more rare at the elementary level. Ross Kruse has been a teacher in the SFCS for the past seven years, and before that, taught an additional eight years in smaller districts. With a degree from Dakota State, he first decided to become a teacher because he wanted to coach. He taught middle school social studies, language arts, and was head basketball coach in the Hamlin School District for three years and also met his wife, Melissa, there. They moved to his hometown of DeSmet so he could take over for his former basketball coach, who was retiring. “I thought I’d be there forever,” he said. Melissa is a cosmetologist, though, and wanted to move to a larger community, so they moved to Sioux Falls. “I had never even thought of teaching in the Catholic schools.” Because they moved in August, school positions were filled, so he started as a substitute in the public schools. “We looked at parishes and found Holy Spirit and realized that they had a school, too. I checked into subbing there.” When a Holy Spirit teacher got cancer, Ross took a long-term substitute position. Shortly thereafter, Ross applied for a full time position. He got the job and has now been teaching 6th grade for the past five years. “You get that opportunity to prepare them for junior high, making sure they’re ready to go on. We don’t have to keep holding their hands.” Kruse says he loves working with the kids at this fundamental stage. “I love the interaction with them. They love coming to school every day. I take a lot of pride in being part of molding kids into what they could be or what they’re going to be. I feel privileged to be a part of that. You can see the potential in these kids.” Life has changed dramatically since Kruse and his wife started a family. In the beginning of his time with SFCS, he coached at both OGJH and OGHS. Now that they have a 3 year old and 1 year old, coaching has taken a back seat. “I remember getting home late and my wife was telling me what the kids were doing and I had missed it. It just wasn’t working. My kids first steps or first words are too important. When they get older I can go back.” Kruse says he does some limited coaching with jr. high track and would like to eventually get back into it more but not now. “I have friends who’ve coached while their kids were growing up. They all had regrets, missed things. I told my wife I wasn’t going to do that. Is coaching more important than missing your own kids’ games? It’s not the path in life I want to take.” Kruse says what he loves most about teaching in the Catholic schools is incorporating faith into his teaching. “In the public schools you can’t bring faith into the classroom, like how we can pray when something happens.” He says he loves the weekly Masses and morning prayer. “It feels like a family. I am way more invested than when I was teaching in a public school.” Being a male teacher in a predominantly female environment just doesn’t occur to Kruse much. “I just think of myself as part of the team.” Ross, we’re glad you’re on our team!

Dick Koch ‘73
As a student at O’Gorman, Dick Koch was one of those kids who participated in pretty much everything. He was a member of the student council and editor of the Scroll. He was extremely involved in the music programs at O’Gorman; he accompanied chorus and band groups, sang in chorus and Madrigals, and was also in many theatre productions. He went on to Creighton for undergraduate and dental school and moved back home to start his dental practice. Though busy with his career and raising a family, he made time to be involved in his church and community. He sang at his church, joined the Elks, Jaycees, Knights of Columbus, and led a boy scouts troop. He was also on the boards of the Sioux Falls Community Playhouse and the Sioux Empire Community Theatre. He continues to be involved in theatrical productions and loves it. When he and his wife, Cindy, had their children, Ben ‘04 and Lisa ‘07, there was no question about where they’d go to school. “I don’t think we even had to discuss it. Faith is an important part of our lives. We were members of St Mary’s Parish and loved the school. It’s a whole way of thinking that I see from that school system. There’s a moral, ethical compass that flows from that as well. We’re just big believers in that. I know my kids are better people because they’ve been in the Catholic school system,” says Dick. During the time that Ben and Lisa were students, Dick and Cindy were heavily involved as parents, spending countless hours helping with band, chorus, theatre productions, working concessions to raise money for the band and more. What they got in return was invaluable. “We met so many people through the school system who became our friends. Some of our best friends today are those we made through the Catholic Schools.” Dick truly appreciates the academic excellence in the SFCS and values the opportunity – just as he had – for students to get involved in activities. “In the Catholic schools – you don’t just get the faith education. There are so many areas where a student can excel – academics, sports, music, theatre.” Dick says he attributes the success in large part to the incredible staff. “We have amazing teachers who could easily have made more money elsewhere. The dedication of the staff is pretty impressive when you think about it.” One of the things Dick values most is the sense of community he’s felt from the time he was a student through today, even though his kids graduated years ago. “When I go to a football game or band performance or theatre performance, I still feel like it’s US – we’re part of that community. That’s a cool thing. That’s a unique thing.”

John and Katy Billion Since the 1990’s, John and Katy (Dougherty) Billion have had students in the Sioux Falls Catholic Schools. Their ‘roles’ as SFCS parents ended last year with the graduation of their ‘baby’ – Sam ‘17. Unlike some empty nester parents, the Billions continue to stay connected with the SFCS community. “We will still be involved. We’ll still be going to football games and concerts and plays. We believe in the system,” says John. Their connection to the Sioux Falls Catholic Schools actually goes back to their fathers who were both Cathedral graduates (Jack Billion ’57 and Don Dougherty ’48). Both John and Katy are graduates — John in 1984 and Katy in 1983. After they married and started having children of their own, they enrolled them at St. Mary’s and their own adventures as parents began. “We wanted to be involved with the school that our kids were attending. We wanted to support our kids, get to know their friends and their friends’ parents,” says Katy. The Billions helped in the classrooms, worked at the Fall Festival and Donut Days, served as room parents and more. They also made it a point to bring their children to lots of activities on the O’Gorman campus, from football and basketball games to concerts and plays. As their kids got older and started at O’Gorman, the Billions moved into new ways of volunteering. John announced soccer games, served on the Dakota Bowl Committee and also worked with the ‘pit crew’ before the musicals. Katy organized all of the catering for the musical casts and crews with her friend, Teresa Schoenfelder. She also served as nurse and chaperone for many years for the concert choir and interp teams, even including road trips! Katy and John hosted a number of cast parties after the musicals, welcoming hundreds of students and their parents into their home. “Everything she does is because her heart is so pure. She loves bringing joy and appreciation to others,” says director of theatre Teresa Fester, who is incredibly grateful to have had the Billions as some of her best and most dedicated volunteers. In addition to the countless hours John and Katy have spent volunteering, they have supported many of the fundraisers and initiatives for the SFCS. They’ve been Sustainer Members of the SFCS Foundation, supported the music and theatre programs by purchasing booster passes or becoming patrons for the playbill. They’ve attended, supported and volunteered at many Dakota Bowls, Golf Classics, Extravaganzas, Foundation events; they have supported the athletic department, the SFCS Teacher Salary Initiative, used the SFCS Gift Card program and so, so much more. Being super involved was just natural. “We had a lot of fun,” says John. “Now we’re just going to be taking a different approach.” The Billions say engaging in all of this at SFCS was the best way not only for them to know their kids – and who their kids were hanging around with — but an incredible way to meet and get to know lifelong friends. “It is amazing to experience the support and camaraderie the community holds,” says Katy. “Those who don’t volunteer are missing out!” John and Katy, we truly thank you for your gifts of time, talent and treasure to support our students and teachers.

Hope Simon ‘19
Incoming senior Hope Simon wants “to be a good student, good friend, good daughter, good sister and, honestly, a good disciple of Christ.” Hope first came to the Sioux Falls Catholic Schools as a freshman after having been previously homeschooled. When she first came, she attended school part time, taking Latin and playing volleyball. She immediately fell in love with the O’Gorman community. “I love school — I love going to school. I like to make a difference in the day of my teachers and my classmates. I love my teachers!” says Hope. By her sophomore year, Hope was getting more involved in classes and activities. Her favorite? Campus Ministry. “Mr. Konz encouraged me to get involved. I helped with the 8th grade retreat as a small group leader. It was one of my best experiences,” says Hope. She also got involved with something called ‘Perk Up’ — where they work to get kids to come into the Campus Ministry room by offering coffee and hot chocolate. “We do that so that students are comfortable checking out the Campus Ministry program. Hopefully, they’ll get more involved with their faith and some of the activities and other Christian Service opportunities.” Hope treasures the ability to pray at O’Gorman, and especially loves having a chapel right on campus. “I love going to the chapel. It’s the center of O’Gorman which shows its importance. I know it has strengthened my faith. I sometimes go into the chapel for 15 minutes before or after school or I go there for adoration.” Outside of O’Gorman, Hope teaches for the Family Program and lectors at Cathedral, and has traveled to Washington DC for the past two years to be part of the March for Life. Living out her faith extends to the way Hope treats others around the school. She makes it a point to say hello to everyone. She knows the custodians by name. As a work study student during her junior year, Hope worked in the kitchen serving food and cleaning. “I loved it. It would be weird going through the lunch line and not knowing who was serving the food. I know all of them and I love all the people I work with.” In the years she’s been doing work study, she has also waxed floors, cleaned out the wood shop, and helped clean at St. Katharine Drexel. Hope understands that her work study allows her to attend O’Gorman and she not only doesn’t mind doing it, but actually enjoys it, especially because it means she gets to attend O’Gorman where her faith and education can seamlessly be integrated.

SFCS FOUNDATION 2018-19 INVESTMENT FUNDS Total Account Value: $17,882,861*
*As of May 31st, 2018
The O’Gorman Foundation Fund was established from the many gifts received through various fund drives to benefit O’Gorman High School prior to the formation of the Sioux Falls Catholic Schools system in 1991. These dollars are to be invested and only a limited percentage of the fund is to be disbursed for use at O’Gorman High School. Balance: $1,036,660 The Teachers’ Endowment Fund was established through a capital campaign drive in 1991, allocating the first $500,000 from the drive toward an endowment to benefit Sioux Falls Catholic Schools teachers’ salaries. Only a limited percentage from this fund is disbursed. Balance: $513,369 The Pooled Funds are defined as those funds established by donors which provide permanent support of the mission of SFCS, whether in the form of teacher compensation, tuition assistance, scholarships, programs, capital improvements or other support. Unless otherwise stipulated by the donor, only a limited percentage from these funds is disbursed. Balance: $10,354,077 The Catholic Community Foundation for Eastern South Dakota represents current balances of endowments established through the CCFESD for the benefit of Sioux Falls Catholic Schools. Balance: $5,978,755
INVESTMENT POLICY Investment decisions are made using the following investment guidelines: • The long term investment objective is to provide reliable and sustainable income for the current needs of stakeholders and perpetuate the resources of the Foundation for future generations of beneficiaries. Therefore, the minimum investment return needs to be sufficient to offset spending and expenses. • Social and moral guidelines will be followed to avoid investing in companies whose activities either generate a profit or promote social change that conflict with teachings of the Catholic Church. As a result of excluding investment in firms that directly carry out immoral activities, it is the explicit intention to encourage those corporations that seek to protect the sanctity of human life and promote the common good. • The target asset allocations for the investment portfolio are set forth in the table below. • To maintain the proper allocation, it is the policy of the Foundation to periodically rebalance the portfolio in the event any asset class allocation differs by more than 20% of the stated target.
INVESTMENT POLICY TARGET ASSET ALLOCATIONS EQUITIES US Large/Mid-Cap Stocks 29% US Small-Cap Stocks 4% International/Emerging Market Stocks 32% TOTAL EQUITIES 65% FIXED INCOME 17% REAL ESTATE ASSETS/OTHER 18%
SFCS FOUNDATION INVESTED FUNDS
(5 Year Period)
• A Spending Rate not to exceed 4% of the investment portfolio’s market value each year is appropriate to meet the needs of SFCS. The rate is reviewed periodically in light of evolving trends within the economy. • No more than 10% of an active manager’s portfolio can be invested in any one security. This does not apply to U.S. Government or agency issues. • All fixed income securities will be of investment grade. • Social and moral guidelines will be followed to encourage those corporations that promote the common good, and to avoid investing in companies which flagrantly jeopardize world peace or race relations, flout traditional Catholic ethics or ignore equal opportunities for all people.
PARTNERSHIP WITH A PURPOSE Once a month for the last couple of years, students from Holy Spirit School have journeyed across the school parking lot over to Avera Prince of Peace Retirement Community for lessons that cannot be taught in their classrooms. This partnership brings together students from the school and seniors residing in the assisted living area.
All age ranges from the school have participated, from preschoolers to 6th grade. “Students read stories to the residents, share their writing or artwork or sing or play their band instruments,” says Principal Regan Manning. What this does for the residents and the students is much bigger than a simple show-and-tell opportunity. “The residents light up when the kids arrive. You can see it on their faces and in their eyes. They LOVE to see the kids come with what they’re doing or working on,” says Ruth Kannenberg, activities assistant at Prince of Peace. But the sharing doesn’t end there. The students sit with the residents for juice, cookies and conversation. The seniors get to know more about the
kids and the kids get to know the seniors. “We really look forward to their energy and their talents,” says Kannenberg. “Everyone always mentions how polite they are. It’s something that stands out.” A recent Stanford report shows that when older adults contribute to the wellbeing of youth, it cultivates a sense of purpose and both sides benefit. The seniors, many of whom have enjoyed watching the students play on the school playground over the years, are delighted to be able to interact with the students. “It’s a win-win situation for all of us. Spending time with the students brings back many memories for our residents and they really look forward to the visits. The students come and want to be there — they’re interested in the residents and you can tell it’s genuine. They make our residents feel so important and needed. It puts purpose in their life,” says Kannenberg.
Both Manning and Kannenberg value this intergenerational partnership and look forward to many more gatherings between the groups. We’ll keep you updated!
