We thank each of you for your commitment and dedication to our mission of “educating and developing the whole student in the Catholic tradition – spirit, mind, and body.” Equally impressive as the support we have experienced has been the accomplishments of our students here at Bishop Kelly. Please allow me to brag a bit about the 142 graduates of the Class of 2013. Here are a few of their statistics: • They contributed over 15,000 hours of service to their community. • 99% of them went on to college, 93% to four-year colleges. • 83% of our graduates received merit-based college scholarship offers totaling more that $15 million. • In athletics, they won 12 out of 18 possible district championships, six state team titles (girls soccer, girls basketball, water polo, hockey, girls golf, girls and boys individual golf, and softball) and six academic state championships. • Most importantly, over 75% of our students participated in co-curricular activities.

I am pleased to tell you that we did make significant progress in many attributes and have work to do in three areas – being the safe and caring place we seek to be, increasing school spirit and fun, and professional development. We are also beginning work on our 50th anniversary of Bishop Kelly with many celebrations coming throughout the next year, beginning with our 50th birthday party on September 1, 2014! We will also begin our strategic planning for the next five years with what we call “BK 2020.” Stay tuned and please join us! In conclusion, I wish to thank you once again for your interest in and commitment to Bishop Kelly. GO KNIGHTS! Kind regards, Rich Raimondi President Bishop Kelly High School

Imagine how complicated it would be for most professionals to do their jobs effectively without a computer or access to the rich resources available online. Now imagine the powerful tool that technology can become in our classrooms if teachers and students use personal electronic devices to tap into those same resources throughout their school day. We all recognize that technology is, and will continue to be, a driving force in schools, workplaces, communities, and our personal lives in the 21st century. That is why we at Bishop Kelly High School have chosen to Power Up our students’ education

parents • To provide resources and opportunities for faith enrichment • To prepare students for college. As these goals illustrate, technology is one more tool our teachers can use to enhance their current curriculum and increase the collaboration and interaction with students. Implementing blended learning school-wide didn’t happen overnight. One of the strategies from Bishop Kelly’s first Strategic Plan, launched in 2005, was to “review, analyze, and respond to input on technology and its role in maximizing student learning.” Exploring blended learning opportunities and building
by launching the 1:1 technology initiative. 1:1 (read as “one to one”) simply means that each student at Bishop Kelly now has their own laptop computer or notepad in the classroom, making the person to device ratio 1:1. The vision for Bishop Kelly’s 1:1 technology initiative is to provide an enriched technology environment designed to ensure maximum learning opportunities for all students so they may become effective communicators and responsible collaborators in the 21st century. At BK, we call this “blended learning.” Blended learning is a teaching method that combines traditional classroom instruction with online or mobile learning activities.

the infrastructure necessary to support technology campus-wide has been a priority at BK for nearly a decade. In 2008 Bishop Kelly invested significant dollars to become a wireless campus and to install projectors that bring the internet to the whiteboard in nearly every classroom in our facility. Forty-five laptops were made available for teachers to reserve for specific classroom projects. Three computer labs were

established on campus, and the library was equipped with 14 desktop computers for student use. Additionally, interactive whiteboards called “Smart Boards” that work with the teacher’s computer to enhance classroom teaching were installed in several classrooms. Bishop Kelly also chose to implement the popular Learning Management System Blackboard. Blackboard

gives students and parents access to virtual classrooms 24 hours a day, seven days a week. While each of these investments in our technology infrastructure made significant strides toward achieving blended learning, they were limited by availability, which made it difficult for teachers to truly integrate the power of technology into their daily curriculum. So after eight years of researching, preparing, and planning, Bishop Kelly was ready to Power Up our school this fall. On August 15, more than 720 students arrived on campus with a laptop or tablet in hand, ready to begin the 2013/2014 school year. Our 1:1 launch made for a few hectic days for our IT staff, but overall was very successful. Just a few weeks into school you can see the impact this initiative is making as you walk down the hallway during the school day.
In Bobbie Shea’s English classes, students are using their electronic devices to help enrich their literature curriculum. For example, when Mrs. Shea’s students read the poem, “The Ballad of Birmingham” about the infamous attack on the 16th Street Baptist Church, Shea makes archived news coverage of the bombing available via Blackboard. Similar enrichment tools are being used in history and theology classes as well. Math teacher Chad Barker has been providing help for his students by creating videos to assist them with their homework. Barker picks three to six of the most difficult homework problems each day and creates a video of himself solving those equations. The video is posted online so that his students have access to homework help 24/7. Barker’s classes are also using the popular Khan Academy website to review for tests and quizzes. Students are given a list of topics to complete online. When they are done, the Khan site tells Barker which students are struggling, which students need practice, and which students have mastered the specific skills. This information helps Barker plan his classroom instruction, and tells him which students need more help before an exam. Students are even using their devices in the art studio to research famous artists, search for inspiration online, or to watch YouTube videos about advanced techniques. Everywhere you look at Bishop Kelly you can find students using technology to enrich their school day. 1:1 is allowing Bishop Kelly students to learn beyond the limits of their classrooms. The rich resources of the internet are literally at their fingertips.
An Update on Bishop Kelly’s Strategic Plan By Rich Raimondi, President
In the fall of 2010, the Bishop Kelly Board of Governance adopted the school’s second five-year strategic plan. The first plan, covering the years 2005-2010, and led by former president David Lachiondo in partnership with the Bishop Kelly Foundation, truly transformed our school. This enabled the school to modernize and update the entire campus and infrastructure, and to triple the Foundation’s endowment. We have just completed the third year of our current plan
• Faculty/staff satisfaction – over 90% of our faculty and staff gave Bishop Kelly favorable ratings in our faculty/staff survey. • In 2013 BK implemented the Power Up 1:1 Technology Initiative that leads the state in blended learning adoption and integration. In support of that initiative BK worked over several years to build a state of the art wireless campus and technology infrastructure. • Adoption of “The BK Way” – in 2012 BK began an

The intentional steps we took to start the school year in a fun and inspiring way have paid off in student satisfaction, parent engagement, and a positive and cohesive work environment for our faculty and staff. As we continue to work on our focus areas, we invite the BK
telling our story. While we as a community have achieved a great deal these past three years, there is always more work that can be done if we are to achieve excellence. Simply put, we must continue to get better in all that we do. Our focus areas for the 2013/2014 school year are: 1. BK is acknowledged as a safe, caring, and compassionate place 2. Each student achieves personal academic excellence 3. Continued investment and growth in faith development 4. Enhance and promote the culture of philanthropy and generosity 5. Increase school spirit and fun 6. Improve professional and personal development
Community to get involved. There are many ways that you can actively participate in helping us achieve excellence. Volunteer your time at Bishop Kelly, participate in our Annual Fund, wear your BK colors with pride, share your BK story with friends, attend an athletic or social event, and pray for our students, faculty, and staff. Each member of our community plays an important role in our success. Thank you for your continued support of Bishop Kelly!

The trip is a chance for approximately 50 BK students to respond to Jesus’ call to feed, clothe, comfort, teach, and help “the least of my brothers and sisters.” In recent years, participating students have spent a week in New Orleans rebuilding homes destroyed by Hurricane Katrina. They have an opportunity to meet and work alongside the people who will be living in the houses they are helping rebuild. The residents share their stories and their lives with our

It made me appreciate that hunger is not something that I deal with in my regular life. But the people we met at the shelter live like that every day. I am even more appreciative of all that I have now. Sage – I felt really separated from my family on this trip. I didn’t have my phone to talk to my parents, I was eating food from a homeless shelter, and definitely not sleeping in my own bed. It made me understand a little bit more about what the people who lost their homes to Hurricane Katrina were going through, and made me appreciate my life in Boise.

She turned to God for everything, which was really inspiring because she had been through so much. Sage – Every day the family we were helping would bring us food and make sure that we were happy. They were taking care of us while we were taking care of them.
transcends that. When you’re hungry, you can get through that when you have another person to be hungry with you. But those moments where I felt alone in New Orleans, or where I saw other people feeling alone and I couldn’t reach them, it made me understand that isolation is humanity’s greatest pain. Would you like to go on another service trip someday? Robby – I would love to go on another service trip. I really enjoyed doing this trip in the United States. I think sometimes we overlook the people in this country who need help. Sage – I’m not going to say that I loved it, but I don’t think that’s the point. Getting yourself out of your comfort zone to help someone else, and getting to feel a little bit of the pain that they have been feeling helps them to not feel so alone. I would definitely do that again. Monica – I don’t think there’s a way to connect with the world without getting out into it, and I don’t think that there is any greater act of love than serving others. As part of my “rent” that I pay on this earth I will always have a need to serve others.

Jane Wilson’s IMPACT

Jane Wilson first came to Bishop Kelly in 1977. “A friend told me that BK was the best place to teach in the Treasure Valley,” Wilson remembers. “The problem was that Bishop Kelly already had an art teacher, Sister Benita.” As far as Wilson could tell, there wasn’t much hope that the position would become available. Fortunately for Wilson, and for thousands of her future students, Sister Benita had always wanted to teach Spanish. And so began a 34 year adventure teaching art at BK.

“I discovered a deep joy for learning how to make things in Jane’s class,” says Stackle. “For the first time, I felt like I could express a side of myself I had never before found an outlet for in school. Jane has planted thousands of seeds in her years as a teacher, and in putting together the IMPACT show, I wanted to reveal to her a glimpse of the beautiful gardens that are growing all over the world, due

Wilson displayed three paintings and two ceramic sculptures as well. “There are artists who were in the show who brought me to tears because they told me that their experience in art class at BK changed their life,” Wilson said. “At the time I didn’t know what an impact it had on them.” We are thrilled that Jane is back at Bishop Kelly after a three year stint in Spokane due to a job transfer for her husband Rich. “I produced a lot of art in the last three years,” Wilson said upon her return to BK. “In fact I always thought that my dream would be to be a studio artist, but I realized that I’m too social. I didn’t feel like I was contributing to anybody except myself. When you’ve been teaching for a long time you get used to giving. It felt selfish. I missed teaching. I missed BK.” We missed you too Jane! Welcome back.

The Saint Teresa of Jesus Chapel at BK
16 p a g e
The Bishop Kelly community has been working hard over the last year and a half to reconnect with the Saint Teresa’s branch of our Alumni Family Tree. We hosted our first All Class STA Reunion in June of 2012, and welcomed these treasured alumni home to Bishop Kelly. The friendships we have formed with our Saint Teresa’s grads are very special to all of us here at Bishop Kelly. As a community we wanted to honor that connection with something visible and permanent. After much research we discovered that the Chapel at Bishop Kelly has never had an official name. So with many Saint Teresa’s Alumni in attendance we celebrated Mass on April 24th, 2013 and officially blessed the Chapel in honor of Saint Teresa of Jesus. Our Saint Teresa’s community responded by purchasing a beautiful hand carved statue of Saint Teresa of Jesus which has been permanently installed in the Chapel. Each time we walk through the doors of the Saint Teresa of Jesus Chapel here at Bishop Kelly, we honor our long legacy of Catholic education in the Treasure Valley!

George Privon, ’02 In May of 2012 Astronomers at NASA announced that the Milky Way galaxy is on a collision course with our nearest neighbor, the Andromeda galaxy. Simulations show that the collision would result in the flinging of stars into new orbits, and the merging of the two galaxies. This cosmic mashup is likely to have an interesting impact on our little corner
of the universe. But fortunately – or unfortunately, depending on how much of a thrill seeker you are – none of us will be around to see it. According to Astronomer George Privon, ’02, “Your plans for the weekend are safe.” The collision of these two galaxies won’t happen for about four billion of Astronomy at the University of Virginia, spends his time researching more distant galaxy collisions. He spent the spring and summer of 2013 at the Infrared Processing and Analysis Center at Caltech, specifically researching 20 pairs of galaxies that are currently colliding. “The stars in galaxies are so far apart that none of them actually collide, they essentially pass by one another. Eventually the galaxies kind of do this dance around each other and finally coalesce into a single galaxy.” A galaxy collision can take up to a billion years to complete. The result is galaxies changing shape, size, and color; and the creation of millions of new stars. Observing these cosmic occurrences via simulations and telescope images is what keeps Privon employed as a full-time graduate research assistant funded by the University of Virginia and the National Science Foundation. “I’m at a computer all the time,” says Privon. “It’s an interface between observational astronomy and theoretical astronomy. There are lots of people who are looking at images of colliding galaxies, and a few people who do computer simulations of

colliding galaxies. They broadly have a nice story that explains what’s going on, but there hasn’t been much direct comparison between the models and the simulation. I’m helping to create that bridge.” When he isn’t at his computer, Privon is actively involved in making quality science and astronomy programs available to school aged children. He visits elementary and middle school classrooms to talk about astronomy, participates in live webcasts to schools from world-class telescope facilities, gives tours of observatories, and trains teachers how to use telescopes in their classrooms as part of the CLUSTER telescope loan program. Privon lights up when he talks about sharing astronomy with interested kids. “Even with binoculars you can look at interesting things in the night sky. And there are many resources online where you can learn about and participate in astronomy.” Websites like Galaxy Zoo invite people to become “citizen scientists” as they help identify and catalog the massive amount of imagery coming from the Sloan Digital Sky Survey. Related projects on the Zooniverse Web Portal allow volunteers to help explore the surfaces of Mars and the Moon, find planets around stars, and assist in understanding how stars form. The data collected from these various volunteer run projects has led to several scientific discoveries, and dozens of scientific papers. “There is so much for kids who are interested in astronomy to see and learn,” says Privon. With George Privon’s enthusiasm about astronomy and his efforts to engage kids, a whole new generation of young scientists is sure to discover their love of learning about the ever expanding universe.

Sheils has had great rounds, like her T-9th finish in Mesa, Arizona, in February. But she’s also had some missed cuts, and a few gritty comebacks. Through it all, she continues to learn and grow. “There is truly no substitute for experience,” says Sheils. “I am learning how to manage nerves, anxiety, exhaustion, excitement, and other emotions as they come. I know that this is an ongoing process. The game will never stop demanding adjustment and improvement.”

and your investments through the four year long Capital Campaign launched in 2006 are paying large dividends. Campus modernization and increased financial aid are driving significant enrollment growth, and our students are earning state and national accolades for their performance in the classroom. Never content to rest on success, we will continue to use our strategic planning process plan to set the bar high for Bishop Kelly, our students, and our BK community. As we graduate our 50th class in 2014, and prepare to celebrate BK’s first 50 years throughout 2014/2015, we have thoughtful and strategic plans to grow with the Treasure Valley as a premier educational institution where students develop in the Catholic tradition – spirit, mind, and body. Our Annual Report would not be comprehensive without mentioning the Bishop Kelly Foundation and its important relationship with Bishop Kelly High School. The Bishop Kelly Foundation is an independent non-profit foundation, chartered in Idaho, and governed by a 25-member Board of Directors. The Bishop Kelly Foundation is a sole support foundation that can only make grants to Bishop Kelly High School. The Foundation’s endowment stands at just over $8 million and consists of unrestricted funds and named scholarships. The Foundation earns money in three important ways: gifts to the Foundation, the Winners Choice Auction, and investment earnings (or losses) on the endowment. Each year Bishop Kelly High School applies for a grant from the Foundation. That grant is made up of 100% of the proceeds of the Winners Choice gala, plus funds taken from the earnings on the endowment’s unrestricted funds. The Foundation also pulls 5% of each scholarship fund and forwards that to be used in the school’s financial aid process. This year the Bishop Kelly Foundation will make an unrestricted grant to Bishop Kelly of $447,000, and provide $285,000 from named scholarships, for
personnel costs, wages and salaries, healthcare, employment taxes, and pension fund deposits. Bishop Kelly employs around 160 faculty, staff, administrators, and full-time and part-time coaches. Financial Aid grants account for 13% of our expenditures, leaving 23% or about $1.6 million for the operation of the school. Operating costs include a wide variety of expenses such as maintenance costs, workman’s comp, transportation and liability insurance, electricity, telecommunications and data services, technology equipment and licenses, photocopiers, transportation, marketing, and kitchen operating costs. While our cost per student is similar to public schools, gifts from the Bishop Kelly Foundation and others allow us to keep tuition approximately $2,000 less than the actual cost to educate each student. Missing from our operating budget is funding for infrastructure replacement or expansion. For these investments in our facilities we often rely on the generosity of our extended BK Family and the appreciation of existing endowments established for that purpose. In 2013 we made a $100,000 investment in technology infrastructure in order to support 800 portable devices simultaneously logged into our wireless campus. We also invested $235,000 to resurface the Driscoll-Dooley all-weather track and upgrade the associated curb and storm water management. Current projects include investment in a new tennis complex and an urgently needed east classroom wing to replace portable classrooms and accommodate an expected increase of 50 new students for the 2014/2015 school year. Based on donor interest we are also considering expanding and modernizing our library. Each of these projects is dependent on funding, and we appreciate the generous donors who have already expressed an interest in making them happen.
a total gift of $732,000. On average, the Foundation’s annual grant lowers the tuition for every BK student by about $1,000 each year. The Bishop Kelly Foundation also underwrites several events at
the school each year including the Back-to-School BBQ and the
Commencement Reception in May.
Bishop Kelly’s budget for the 2013/2014 academic year is about
$7 million. Tuition and student fees account for approximately
77% of Bishop Kelly’s income. Revenue from operations such as admission to athletic events, interest, and cafeteria sales adds another 6%. The remaining 17% comes from gifts to the school. Those include the Bishop Kelly Foundation’s annual grant and scholarship income, Catholic parish tuition contributions, the Laura Moore Cunningham Scholars program, the Parents as

provide you with their unique values-based estate planning services. At no cost to you, Thompson and Associates will help you thoughtfully create, or update, an estate plan that maximizes your assets and ensures that your values, priorities, and wishes are clearly communicated. This completely confidential process will help you to: • Review your current plan • Quantify your assets • Create an unbiased, third-party recommendation that maximizes the assets you leave to your heirs while reducing your tax obligations • Develop strategies for supporting the causes that you hold dear • Implement your estate plan through your own attorney and financial advisor To date, 24 BK families have taken advantage of this service since it began in April 2013.
At Bishop Kelly, we feel strongly that understanding estate planning is important. For that reason we have chosen to offer this service as a gift to our friends. Should you choose to meet with the Thompson and Associates consultant, the information you share will be held in the strictest confidence and will not be disclosed to Bishop Kelly High School, the Bishop Kelly Foundation, or any other source. You will not be asked to make a charitable gift to Bishop Kelly or any other organization. Additionally, we wish to assure you that Thompson and Associates does not draft documents, manage money, or sell any products. This allows them to provide unbiased counsel in connecting lifetime values with asset strategies. Recent headlines illustrate the importance of having an estate plan. On television, the IRS didn’t scare the larger than life gangster, Tony Soprano. But in real life, the untimely death at age 51 of James Gandolfini, who played Tony, was a very different story. Due to poor estate planning, James left 80% of his $70 million estate unprotected from taxes. This resulted in undue hardships for his family who immediately faced a $30 million tax bill. A simple will and estate plan could have dramatically lowered his tax liability. While most of us are not in the same tax bracket as James, it is important for every family to have an estate plan and keep it current with the changing tax landscape. If you, or someone you know and love, would like more information about our estate planning services, please contact Rita Franklin at the Bishop Kelly Foundation: (208) 323-4789 or email@example.com, or Mark Jaszkowski in the Development Office: (208) 9471325 or firstname.lastname@example.org. We would be happy to answer any questions you have, or to schedule your introductory appointment.
