Dear Friends, This letter will be simple but powerful as it contains the footprints to the road map to the future of BHCS. The BHCS Governing Board recently approved the revised mission/vision, belief statements and pillars of success that will be used as the foundation of all we do. The Mission of Bishop Hoffman Catholic School: “To reach and teach the Mind, Body, Heart and Soul of each child to bring them closer to God.” This Mission is the animating principle and the “why” of what we do. It is concise, it is faith-driven and it is what sets us apart. We are proud to be Catholic and faith-filled people who care for and about the whole child. We are committed to providing programs and opportunities that challenge and develop intellect, the co-curricular, service to others and the ultimate goal of knowing and growing closer to God in this world and beyond. Belief Statements of Bishop Hoffman Catholic School: We are a community of faith. Those entrusted to us are children of God. We are bold witnesses of Christ. Parents are the first and primary educators. Teaching and learning is an ongoing relationship. All children can learn. Our faith is infused in our course of study. We work in partnership with community stakeholders. Our students impact the world. These Belief Statements represent the core values we hold near and dear and they offer us a challenge when planning to meet these values in our future. Each and every child in our world means the world to someone, and each is valued, respected and supported. We work in collaboration with our parents, guardians, parishioners, community and other stakeholders like you to maintain and grow our school system. We serve those who will serve the world. The Pillars of Success of Bishop Hoffman Catholic School: “SEEK” “PERSIST” “EXCEL” “LOVE” “SERVE” Each pillar is important and “holds up” the work we do, the choices we make and the future we plan. Each pillar is a verb, an action, that compels us to move forward, upward and onward to make our beliefs real. Each pillar is a part of the solid foundation that supports the clear mission/vision we now pursue. We are taking action: Our marketing committee has met and is developing a plan to clearly “tell our story” to those who do not know us yet or misunderstand us or need to come back and give us another try. We are taking action: Our Governing Board is working diligently to improve the structure of how they engage and involve others to help us respect the past, celebrate the present and build the future of BHCS. We are taking action: Our dedicated staff continues to work on our first comprehensive accreditation plan as a whole school system versus the previous stand-alone school buildings. We are taking action: All of us – Governing Board, Staff, Students, Parents/Guardians, Parishes and Community-will be developing a comprehensive Strategic Plan that will incorporate the Mission, Beliefs and Pillars you now have seen. It is my privilege and passion to be the Superintendent of BHCS and Principal of SJCC. I am humbled to know how much you care and support our work. During these troubled times that the world looks for God amidst the troubled waters, I implore you to get involved in our work, to please support us through your generous donations and volunteerism, and to continue to pray for all of us. God bless you! Tim Cullen

The Meaning of Peggy Christmas (Courtney) Rodriguez ‘88 The Christmas of 1998 was a Christmas that I will never forget…and one that I don’t ever want to forget, in spite of the heartache and pain that I carried with me that year. Not only was that the year of my greatest suffering and challenge, it was a time in my life when I felt the glow of compassion, the warmth of caring actions, the power of prayer and the miracle of God’s unwavering love. It was the week before Christmas. As I dropped my 2 ½ year old daughter and my eight week old baby off at the babysitter’s house before heading to work, my mind raced with everything that still needed to be done before the big holiday. Cookies still needed to be made and Christmas cards mailed. So much to do, so little time! A few minutes after 9 a.m. on that fateful day, the phone rang. Something was wrong, terribly wrong. I could hear it in my sitter’s panic-stricken voice. Little did I know that my life was about to plummet into hell. I raced to the hospital and then waited. The emergency room doctor came out and briefly explained what was happening and then I again waited. The family began to arrive and we waited together. Another brief talk with the doctor and then more waiting…plenty of painful, heart wrenching, prayerful, endless waiting. And then…well, what happened next was surreal. What was inconceivable an hour earlier became frightfully possible as the dire words dangled from the doctor’s mouth and became my unbearable truth. My infant daughter, the baby that I had loved from the moment I realized she was growing in my womb, my beautiful girl that hadn’t even been with us for two whole months was gone! Just like that, she was gone. SIDS was the preliminary cause of death. Like a thief in the night, my daughter’s life was stolen. My heart literally broke into a million pieces and I didn’t have the strength to collect those pieces. I didn’t even have the strength to pick myself up off the cold hospital floor. Welcome to my world; this was now my reality. Much of the week that followed was a blur. Our house was full of people…so many people! Some worked on preparing meals while others did laundry and cleaning. Family members took care of our older daughter while my parents helped us make funeral arrangements. There was so much activity, but still hours and days that I can’t begin to remember. I suppose that is the body’s way of numbing us and shielding us from the devastation that waits in the wings to swallow us. After the funeral, we had to get out of town. My little family, which now consisted of three, couldn’t face the thought of going through the motions of our traditional Christmas. A trip to Georgia to spend Christmas with my family was just what we needed. My brother-in-law and sister-in-law had invited us to stay with them, and we graciously accepted. The drive south was terrible as we encountered treacherous ice in Kentucky. The traffic crawled along the highway at a snail’s pace. A trip that usually took about twelve hours took over sixteen! By the time we arrived at our destination, it was the early hours of Christmas Eve morning. After carrying in our luggage, we all collapsed into our beds, hoping for some kind of reprieve from the stress of our new life. Rest did not come easily, though, and my body tossed and turned with exhaustion and despair. We finally got up sometime in the afternoon, showered and headed to church. The congregation welcomed us with open arms, embraced us, and prayed with us. People we didn’t know became comforters and life-savers. God’s love was all around! That Christmas Eve night was spent with cousins and extended family. As everyone opened presents and celebrated the birth of Jesus, I sat on the love seat and tried to force a smile, even though I was painfully aware of my raw despair and my own baby who was missing. I observed the enthusiasm of all the children as the magic of Christmas unfolded before my eyes. Somehow, I was drawn into the excitement and was actually able to enjoy bits and pieces. And then, under that gleaming tree that reached to the ceiling, there was a present for me. How could this be? I wasn’t supposed to be in Georgia for that holiday! What was this small gift and who was it from? Carefully, I unwrapped the festive paper to reveal a small book, Everything I Need to Know About Christmas I Learned from Jesus, published by HB Honor Books. This gift of inspirational sayings, this small token given by a cousin, brought tears to my weary eyes. I held that mauve colored book close to my heart for a few moments, thankful that this relative had gone out of her way to make me feel so loved and included! From across the room, the cousin’s eyes met mine. We raced toward each other and united in a tender embrace. As we cried in each other’s arms, I thanked her for her heart-felt gift. After a few moments, I sat back down and began to glance through the small book. While thumbing through the pages, I came across an especially profound passage, “I am not alone at all, I thought. I was never alone at all. And that, of course, is the message of Christmas. We are never alone. Not when the night is darkest, the wind coldest, the world seemingly most indifferent. For this is still the time God chooses.” On that Christmas Eve night in Georgia, far from my home and my holiday traditions, in the midst of indescribable grief and loneliness, I felt the unconditional love of extended family, the gift of the many caring souls that surrounded me and the power of God’s great love as my baby girl celebrated this most holy of nights in the glory of heaven above! I knew, beyond the shadow of a doubt, that God was carrying me through this valley and that he would never leave me alone! Christmas of 1998, although not what I would have chosen, became a Christmas that I will forever cherish!

Streak of Genius Tom Kashmer ‘64

In a figurative way, Tom Kashmer ’62 is a forester whose work will live and grow for generations. But the fruits of his labor are not trees; rather they are scores of young people in whom he has cultivated an interest and passion for nature, land stewardship, and conservation. In the last 30 or so years their numbers have really added up – more than 500, all of them members of the Green Creek Wildlife Society, which Kashmer founded while teaching social studies during a 28-year career at Gibsonburg High School. That, however, is getting ahead of the story. It starts more or less when Kashmer, now 68, was a Fremont kid who lived to canoe, fish, hunt, trap, and generally mess around with his buddies in the marshes along the lower Sandusky River and upper Sandusky Bay. Even today, when Kashmer leads monthly summertime full-moon canoe trips down Green Creek – this for the Sandusky County Park District -- he recounts reflections of his youthful adventures on, in, and along the Bay. The tales, told in a Huckleberry Finn style in Kashmer’s quiet voice, and frequently accented with a huge, easy, ear-to-ear smile, make you wish you had been there. After graduating from SJHS, Kashmer went on to earn a bachelor’s degree in education at Bowling Green State University in 1967. He taught a year at St. Ann’s School in Fremont, a year at Old Fort Elementary, and then settled into his career at Gibsonburg. He nurtured a lifelong interest in birds and birding, turning it into a serious avocational occupation. With partners Kashmer has conducted valuable research into bank swallows, working in two Sandusky County quarries, and on rails, which are certain species of marsh birds, at Ottawa National Wildlife Refuge. He also has built and maintains a network of bluebird “trails” throughout the county and into neighboring Ottawa County. Some 750 nesting boxes on those trails, supported by donations from friends and fellow conservationists, have produced some 9,200 bluebirds and 14,000 tree swallows since 1984. If that were not enough, Kashmer is one of a mere handful of individuals nationally who has banded more than 100,000 birds, this as part of his field work. He works under a federal research permit, as attested to by the magnetic signs he posts on the doors of his car; the signs help explain and perhaps reassure passersby as to why his vehicle is parked, seemingly abandoned at the gray dawn or dusky edge of the day, in remote sites here and there. (Banding is an important field tool, helping tell ornithologists about the comings and goings of individual birds. It is harmless to the birds involved.) Kashmer reached the lofty 100,000 plateau in 2010, banding a tufted titmouse, an attractive little songbird, at Creek Bend Farm, the county’s heritage showplace at Lindsey, the gift of the late Bob and Fran Roush. Among those on hand for the occasion was one of his more notable Greek Creek Wildlife Society protégés, Sara Siekierski, then a specialist with Ottawa Refuge. “It’s invaluable to the refuge to have people like Tom, who has so much experience that contributes to research and which ultimately affects the management of Ottawa,” said Siekierski at the time. She now is assistant manager of the Ohio River Islands National Wildlife Refuge along Ohio’s border with West Virginia, and Kentucky. Siekierski recalls, “Tom was my teacher in seventh grade. My whole career is pretty much because of Tom.” “You do research because you want to make a difference,” said Kashmer, who is research director for the park district. And it appears his work indeed has made a difference. Ottawa refuge, for example, changed its plan to flood a sedge meadow unit after Kashmer banded 17 king rails there and demonstrated it to be the primary remaining rail habitat on the refuge complex’s 10,000 acres. “It makes it worthwhile.” Nothing is more important to him, though, than his work with young people. Other notables among Green Creekers over the years have been Steve Gruner, who helped develop and is long-time director of the renowned Sandusky County Park District , and Dave Kohler, now wildlife biology programs director for the Ohio Division of Wildlife in Columbus. Among the 500 or so Green Creek members, 122 have accompanied Kashmer on annual outdoors adventures that began with the Grand Canyon in 1987 and continued in 2012 with the River of No Return wilderness i n Idaho. In between were such remote, wild destinations as the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge on the North Slope of Alaska (2004), the Great Okefenokee Swamp of Georgia and Florida (1988), islands in the Caribbean, and many more. Kashmer maintains a list of all his students who traveled with him, canoeing, rafting, hiking, horse-packing, snorkeling, and whale watching. He married Sandy Myslinski ’65, 44 years ago, and she, also a veteran and now retired teacher, vicariously has enjoyed his research and travels. They have two daughters, Kristi Urig, Columbus, and Kerri Kashmer, Fremont, and three granddaughters. His favorite pastimes – no surprise -- are canoeing and kayaking. And dreaming up at least one more good adventure for the Green Creek Wildlife Society.

Fall Sports Wrap-up

Volleyball With a new coach, Jennifer Mullholand, the volleyball team was determined to have their best season ever. Returning eight letter winners and a few newcomers, the team was finished with a 16-6 record. Replacing seniors Amanda Binder, Cassidy Frank, Jensen LeJeune, Brennan Reardon and Kristen Sessler will present a challenge next year. The underclassmen are ready for the challenge and look forward to another great year! Golf With three returning letter winners from last year’s State qualifying team, there were a lot of expectations this year. A couple of strong golfers were also added to the varsity team. The boys eased through the MAL in route to their third consecutive MAL title. Senior Connor Dudley also won his fourth individual title, becoming only the second person in MAL history to win the title all four years. They placed third at Sectionals but failed to qualify at Districts. However, Dudley qualified for State for the fourth year where he finished 16th. Seniors Dudley, Brett Michael, Adam Swint and Derek Zavela will be greatly missed next year. Cheerleading Eight was the magic number for the 2012 football cheerleaders. The seven returning members plus an incoming freshman composed the small team of energetic spirit-boosters. Fun games, zombies and free jeans days made the pep rallies exciting. Seniors Allison Batey, Leah Darr, Lindsay Darr, and Grace Magro will be missed next season. Cross Country The boys’ and girls’ cross country teams were led by lone senior Katie Harmon. The team trained vigorously to improve their times throughout the season. Newcomers Brooke Foster and Chloe Liebold turned in solid performances for the Lady Streaks. The boys’ team gained valuable experience for next season. Tennis With many new players stepping up to the varsity level this year, the girls’ tennis team had many expectations. While returning players from last year and adding some new faces, the girls’ record of 6-7 was a huge improvement from recent years. The team was well balanced with seniors Katie Blohm, Caroline Darr, Kendra Molyet, and Cara Tiell. Football To say this football season was great is an understatement! The team was led by six seniors who all had varsity experience. Two-time letter winners Luke Stierwalt, Jordan Sessler, and Zack Yeckley were elected senior captains. Seniors Alex Veleba, Jacob Wurzel and Logan Hartley led by example throughout the season. The boys lost their first game to State semifinalist Liberty Benton but then rattled off nine straight wins to finish the regular season 9-1. They were crowned MAL Champions and looked forward to the post season. The Streaks defeated Ottawa Hills in their first home playoff game. The following week they traveled to BGSU to face a tough Delphos St. John’s team. In spite of a valiant effort they lost the game. It was a tough loss but they had an unforgettable season and certainly represented SJCC well.
