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:
- Faustin Weber has written an insightful blog about Catholic schools entitled “Ten Assumptions About Catholic Schools.” It’s rich and worth your time.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
