March 1st Newsletter

Happy March! This week, I conclude my series on Fratelli Tutti with a blog and podcast with Dr. Katherine Greiner from Carroll College in this week’s newsletter.  She is a former high school theology teacher with a lovely singing voice.  We reflect on Pope Francis’s reflections on history, truth, and justice.

Back by popular demand, I’m listing the Top 5 links from this week’s newsletter.  Any other ideas or thoughts about the newsletter?  Just reply and let me know.  The Top 5:

  1. Faustin Weber has written an insightful blog about Catholic schools entitled “Ten Assumptions About Catholic Schools.” It’s rich and worth your time.
  2. The Catholic Schools Center for Excellence in the Twin Cities is presenting a great little 45-minute webinar this week on growing your school enrollment. It’s going to be a practical webinar based on the experiences of school leaders.  Register here.
  3. Have you spent too much time waiting in a carline? Or trying to cajole parents into behaving properly?  Watch this short spoof of the carline by two Catholic school parents filmed at St. Margaret Mary in Omaha (my alma mater).  It’s a hoot and if you don’t come away impressed by my former classmate’s voice (Nikki Boulay), you’re not paying attention.  Look for a brief cameo by Maureen Berg, the outstanding principal.
  4. In the Leadership section, Inc has provided a great article on preventing burnout. We are coming up on contract time and I’m sure you’re all seeing signs of burnout.
  5. In the Teaching & Learning section, an older HBR article on focusing on small improvements, “How 1% improvement” is worth reading now when making big changes seems overwhelming.
