Many OA high points this year
On behalf of the entire Oldenburg Academy family, I wish to say thank you to the Batesville/Oldenburg community, businesses, families, alums and various well-wishers whose support and encouragement meant so much to our basketball team this season.
While we had hoped for a different final score on Saturday, we could not have been more pleased with the level of sportsmanship, dedication and determination displayed by our young men. The stands were filled with hundreds of fans from across Indiana – some with OA ties, but some just looking for a good basketball game. The sea of navy and white was inspiring and encouraging!
Thank you for being there, for your e-mails, cards, Facebook posts, newspaper ad, sign board messages and sharing in this “first” for OA.
As I have said numerous times recently, it has been a “history-making year” for us at OA! From our first football win, to our boys’ regional soccer championship, our girls’ regional cross country championship, our highest grossing Reverse Raffle in its 25-year history, our largest number of foreign national students and the most National Merit Scholars in a single class, Oldenburg Academy has stood tall and proud and strong in 2013-14.
We are so grateful to all of our students, their parents, our amazing faculty and staff, our valued board of trustee members and the steadfast support of the Sisters of St. Francis. Together we continue the legacy of “virtue, honor and education” in this wonderful village where we are privileged to live and work.
Oldenburg Academy president
Freshman class appreciates support
The freshmen class at Batesville High School, Class of 2017, would like to thank everyone who purchased a ‘2-for-1’ card during their fund raiser. The class sold 1000 cards this year. The money will be used for their junior prom in the spring of 2016 and graduation expenses.
