FIRST DAY OF CLASSES: BUILDING COMMUNITY

Mr. Sheldon's Chapel TalkWednesday morning, Casady held its first ever Chapel service for the first through twelfth grades. Interim Head of School Nathan Sheldon discussed the Casady Crest and what it means. In an email sent to all of the Casady Community, Mr. Sheldon encouraged everyone to act faithfully and bravely and to always remember "who we are and what we represent."
Mr. Sheldon's Chapel talk is printed here so that you understand the School's focus and the words that appear on the Casady Crest:

"I would like to talk with you today about something that is very important to me and to Casady School. I doubt many of us have ever paid attention to our School’s Crest, let alone to stop and think that it is what helps define who we are. Our Crest contains a shield with the words Fideliter et Fortiter. These two Latin words, that originate from the words Fidelis and Fortis, serve as a foundation to our School’s identity. 
Fideliter means faithfully and with reliance on God. This idea is not exclusively one of religious faith but also one that welcomes all faiths not just our own. It doesn’t matter that some of us worship daily, weekly, or even less frequently. What matters is that we recognize the importance of coming together as a community for a time of stillness and reflection in the presence of something greater than ourselves. We live in an environment where we don’t all share the same faith, but we recognize the importance to understand our differences and to celebrate our similarities. This allows us to be more accepting of each other and serves as the foundation of what it means to be a part of the Casady School Community.
Faithfulness also includes the idea of having faith in yourself as well the idea of having faith in others. Faith in your classmates, teachers, priests, coaches, administrators, alumni, and parents. We may not always agree with them, but we should have faith knowing that they are acting in our best interest.
Fortiter means bravely or boldly. We must have courage to admit that we don’t know everything. When we recognize this simple fact, we are taking the first step towards knowledge and strength. It takes bravery to acknowledge this simple truth, and as we do, we become stronger. This act of bravery opens us up to new ideas and to act differently from what the world defines as 'cool'. You see, being brave and strong is not always the easy way. You show bravery when; given the opportunity to look at a neighbor’s paper during a test, you don’t; or when you see someone being mean to another fellow student, you step in and befriend them; or when you find something of value on the ground and instead of saying 'finders keepers, losers weepers' you take it to a teacher to be returned.  
You see, whether it is football or physics; orchestra or Latin, you will face many new challenges this year, but because you are part of the Casady Community you can remember the words on the Crest and know that you have been called to respond to those challenges faithfully and bravely.
I am really looking forward to this being a great year… remember you are Casady. You are faithful, loyal, strong, and brave. Always, remember who you are and what you represent in everything you do."
Mr. Sheldon continued in his email to the community, "This idea is not only for Casady's students but for the faculty, staff, board members, alumni, grandparents, and parents as well. Once we join the Casady Community we are forever connected to Fideliter et Fortiter. Casady's Community, which dates back to the School's founding year in 1947, is large and stands the test of time because of faith and courage. We will always be part of the Casady Community and as a result we must always remember who we are and what we represent," he said.
Opening Day Chapel
The Chapel service concluded with the first through twelfth grades, faculty and staff singing the Casady Hymn together.Article by Communication Director, Betty Jane Garrett


During UD Chapel, STuCO President Marshall L. welcomed the student body, set the tone of caring and respectful collaboration and trust with an inspirational speech and an engaging video presentation.



Words of STuCO President, Marshall L, 

"Good Morning. It feels great to be back, I hope you guys are as excited to be here as I am. But that being said I have two things to do today, one is to speak a little bit more about what Dr.Powell talked about yesterday and two is to show you a back to school video which Student Council put together. 

So first off, as you can see this is going to be a year of newness. Both in the sense that literally there lots of new faces, buildings and rules and also in the sense that we are reviving lots of previous traditions that have faded in recent years. 

Now all of you who have been at Casady remember some of the great traditions of Casady such as the Walk-A-Thon and the days when the Book Fair doubled as a massive carnival with the mechanical bull, dunk tanks and all. Shocktober Fest or Fall Fest which included more dunk tanks and also hay rides around campus. Now I know that these things just seem like an excuse to dunk teachers into water and ride mechanical bulls but in reality these are very important to our school because things like fall fest bring the Casady community together during football season and make the entire school come support. Also, the book fair had a much much more successful outcome when kids and parents were encouraged and excited to attend. Lastly the Walk-a-Thon was also a very very successful fundraiser for many many years at Casady and one of our most notable and lovable traditions. All of these plans, and these are only some of many, are aimed to bring the Casady community together in order to up attendance at sporting and other school events, raise more money for The Oklahoma Children’s Hospital, and to help Casady affirm our prestigious reputation. Because as Dr.Powell said this year, Casady is getting back to its ways. And as another very wise man once said “I was a cold dude, I’m getting back to my ways.”

All of this being said, none of these things can get accomplished without a mutual  respects amongst teachers, students, and administrators. To reach that mutual respect which will allow the faculty to trust us with so many more fun ideas, we must show them that we deserve to be trusted. We can this by being mature, respectful and dedicated in everything that we do. We can also do this by treating all of our buildings with respect by keeping them clean and organized, not being too loud, and not tipping any lockers over. For you freshman and sophomores who may not know, this year is very big because we are looking to up our streak to 2 consecutive years with no lockers tipped.
So think about it like this: carry yourselves in a way in which you shouldn’t be paranoid of what might possibly happen when your grandma comes to visit on grandparent’s day. Be respectful. Be kind. And remember that our school has such a wonderful reputation for a reason, and another year means another chance to uphold that reputation. Have a great day, and welcome back to school."

Casady K-12th Faculty and staff served @ Food Bank, August 19, 2014


Casady School traditionally hosts its 140 faculty and staff for a week long orientation prior to the students returning to campus. Orientation week opens with a Chapel service on Monday followed by a full faculty and staff gathering, lunch throughout the week, division meetings and an in-service day. This year Casady’s faculty and staff spent a morning at the Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma as the in-service activity of 2014-2015.  Coach Jim Bonfiglio, master mind of this professional development opportunity, greeted Casady faculty at Calvert with a delicious breakfast carefully prepared by Chef Kevin and his caring SAGE kitchen staff.

Wearing jeans, Casady Cares T-shirts-designed by Coach Bonfiglio, slogan provided by LD art teacher Megan Thompson, and closed-toe shoes, the Casady faculty and staff shared continental breakfast and loaded busses, kindly conducted by members of the Athletic Department and headed to their service experience @ the Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma. 

Casady YAC (Youth Acting in the Community) members of the PEACE WEEK Team, sophomores Johnny L. and Turner W. helped by UD faculty Stephanie Crossno and Carmen Clay, and MD Lynn Robertson welcomed teachers with pinwheels center pieces made at Single Parent Network Family Fun Day, where Johnny and Turner manpower a pinwheel booth.  The Casady Peace Team is receiving $1 per
Pinwheel for Peace made to advocate Peace One Day and to celebrate the 11 Days of Global Unity playing the compassion games with  intentional acts of kindness, compassion and service.  The pinwheels have the potential of raising up to $15,000 to begin the construction of an additional home for foster children @ Pepper's Ranch where another member of the Peace Team, Ananya B. heads the pinwheels fundraiserfor the Ranch Youth Board.   

Johnny made signs requesting volunteers to leave their expectations before the work day began and high points of the experience during 15 minute break at the 16 volunteer tables.  Coach Jim Bonfiglio had divided the Casady faculty in 4 groups of 33 people each.  Each group experienced a different packing aspect of the Food Bank distribution needs. Turner also provided music during the work time, favorite volunteer songs while packing food.

After a welcome speech by Casady parent and Food Bank's Development Director, Mrs. Laura Lang, the Casady Cyclone volunteers viewed this video



During the 15 minute break, some volunteers took the Food Bank Tour before returning back to work.  At the end of the shift, volunteers gathered to heard the results of their collaborative effort and viewed another video of the work the Food Bank does to end hunger and feed hope.





By noon, the Cyclone volunteers had packed 19,341 pounds of food, which is the equivalent of 16,117.5 meals in 62 cases of rice, 115 cases of mixed vegetables, 634 cases of fresh bread, 145 cases of crackers, 104 cases of cereal, 71 cases of cookies, and 37 cases of packaged meals.


"Part of our mission calls for our students to realize their potential and to use it to make a difference in their community," said Casady's Interim Head of School Nathan Sheldon. "We, as the School's faculty and staff, believe in modeling what it means to make a difference in our community."
Mr. Moore, UD orchestra teacher stated, "best professional development in 26 years of teaching."

Based on the famous quote, Roots & Wings provides training and consultation for youth and the adults who care about them in the areas of leadership, communication and identity development. We believe there are two things that we all need in order to become amazing human beings: Roots (identity and confidence in knowing who we are and where we come from) and Wings (the skills necessary to navigate and create positive change in this global world).   About Roots & Wings: http://www.rootsandwingstraining.com/

PEACE ONE DAY GLOBAL CAMPAING ON 9/21


IMG_2810

Dear Casady PEACE TEAM,

Two months from now, individuals and organisations from around the world will come together on 21 September to call for peace in our homes, schools and communities. It will be the loudest call for global peace the world has ever known and we can all help amplify this message.

This is the first year of our three year project in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) and the Great Lakes region of Africa (GLR), demonstrating how the day can be a window of opportunity for humanitarian and life-saving activities. Working with a range of organisations including UN bodies, NGOs, faith groups, schools and individuals, we have already received word of a number of incredible plans taking place in the region, including:
 
  • In partnership with UNICEF and the DRC Ministry of Education, Peace One Day is distributing peace education posters in six languages to over 51,000 schools in the DRC.
  • Jeuness’Espoir has created a coalition in Bas-Congo to drive Peace Day activity across the province.
  • UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) is supporting refugees in the GLR in a number of ways including the voluntary repatriation of refugees from Uganda to the DRC, the distribution of fuel-efficient stoves to IDP camps, as well as organising a mini-marathon in Goma.
  • As part of their ‘Peace in the Great Lakes’ initiative, the Association of the Catholic Episcopal Conferences of Central Africa and the Provinces of the Anglican Church of Congo, Burundi and Rwanda are organising a three-day prayer for peace (Triduum).
  • Corporate Coalition member Greif will distribute 6,000 water backpacks across the DRC and the GLR to help people safely carry clean water.

This is just a selection of the activities that will take place in the region and beyond on Peace Day. For more plans and to find activities where you are please check out our Peace Day Tumblr page. If you are marking the day we want to hear from you! By filling in this short form you can help us tell the global Peace Day story, inspiring others to get involved.

To showcase this support for Peace Day, Peace One Day’s celebration in Goma, DRC - with performances from Akon, Lexxus Legal and Dety Darba - will see your activities broadcast to the audience in Goma and around the world.

Together this celebration can be a symbol of our collective actions the world over for peace.

If you are in the region and would like tickets please email us here.

With two months to go, we can make this Peace Day the biggest yet. We look forward to hearing from you regarding your plans. The very best of luck!
