St. Charles Craft Fair! - The Fine Arts Boosters are sponsoring our annual Craft Fair again on the first Saturday of November, November 5, throughout the school building. Registrations are currently being accepted for vendors; there are 150 vendors registered to sell their homemade items. Please mark your calendars to attend 8:30-2:00. If you have time to assist with set-up, clean-up, or concessions, please contact All income from this marvelous event benefits our students’ Fine Arts’ programs in the areas of art, music, and drama. 
    Past proceeds have been used to purchase our original kiln and to upgrade it a few years ago. Regular maintenance is provided through these funds as well as participation in the FAME festival. Funds have been used to assist with our general music program and to update equipment and instruments. Used instruments have been purchased to assist our beginning orchestra and band students. Additionally, the funds raised have been used to bring various programs to our school. Stevens’ Puppets come annually with a show for our younger students. An ensemble from the Fort Wayne Philharmonic is again scheduled to perform for several of our grades this year.

Dear Parents and Students - Congratulations & Thanks are in order for all of our fall sport athletes. I want to thank all of the volunteer Coaches and Athletic Board members for working daily to provide a positive, stable, safe, and encouraging environment for our athletes and their families. Much, much appreciated! 
     Also, thank you to Mr. Slee, the Bishop Dwenger AD, who welcomed back CYO football games being played at Dwenger’s Stadium. This is a nice experience for our young people.
     To our students, thank you for participating in our programs, and using your talent and effort, to bring glory to our school. We might not win every game, meet, or match, but just having students who want to wear ST. CHARLES across their chests and go out and compete for school, family, and God is victory enough. So thank you. 
     Thank you to our parents, who take on the role of schedulers, chauffeurs, nutritionists, and spiritual advisors to ensure that their children have a chance at success. Without you, the athletic ambitions of our young people would fall into a dark and despairing world of empty water bottles, shattered dreams, and baskets of horrendously smelly socks and jerseys!

And now, a roll call of team praise:
Cross Country: Both our Boys and Girls Teams, the CARDEAGLES, had outstanding seasons, consistently placing in the top five of meets throughout the year.  Both placed first in their final meet of the season at Shoaff Park! Congratulations Champs!
Football: Our 5th & 6th grade teams competed hard all year, losing a close game to the eventual champs in the CYO tournament semi-finals. The future is bright and the Cardinals always improve! Watch out!
Volleyball: Our four teams were strong throughout the regular season, coming up just short in their season-ending tournaments. Bump, set, spike! Keep an eye on the ladies next year as they have a few scores to settle!
Cheerleading: Rain, wind, or shine our young ladies turned out to faithfully cheer on their teams! I know the athletes enjoyed the support and appreciated your enthusiasm. Thank you, ladies! Keep up the good work!  

In closing, one of Mrs. Hoersten’s Pre-K students, Caroline Grote, is in need of your prayers. Caroline had tests run at the Riley Children’s Hospital this past week and was found to have an internal growth identified as cancerous. Initial surgery to remove the growth was mostly successful and Caroline will begin extended treatment next week. She is tough, but still needs all the prayers she can get! We are with you, Caroline! Enjoy the weekend everyone! Thanks for your children! Sincerely -Rob S.
