about ‘her girls’,” added Kyleigh. She was ultimately their coach and had a “tough-love” approach, but she truly cared about each girl like they were her own. She not only wanted to see them succeed on the mat, but also in life. She gave them advice, she drove girls home from practice when their parents or caregivers couldn’t, she has always been a role model for the many young women she had the opportunity to coach. My mom keeps in touch with many of her old cheerleaders. To this day, my mom will scroll through Facebook and will mention how proud she is of girls she have coached, some from over twenty years ago.”

Dear Parents and Friends of Gloucester Catholic:
Your Voice Matters to the Future of Catholic Schools!
Attached please find the first two ACTION ALERTS for the Governor’s 2020-2021 state budget. The nonpublic school community has two major “ASKS” this budget season.
1. To increase the per pupil allotment for Compensatory Ed (Chapter 192) from $995.00 per service to $1100.00 per service. This allotment has not been increased in over 10 years.
2. To increase the per pupil allotment for transportation/aid in lieu from $1000.00 to $1050.00. Although the increase to $1000 two years ago was a big help, there are still many students not receiving transportation because the bus companies are not bidding on certain routes.
Our task now is to contact Governor Murphy and ask him to include these increases in his budget. There is not a lot of time to do this, because the Governor’s budget will be released on February 25th, which is a week earlier than usual.
The Diocese has asked that we use the Voter Voice system as directed in the attachments (see links below). We are counting on the entire Catholic school community, not just those who have students in the Comp Ed program or have students who receive bus transportation, to support this effort. The advantage of using the Voter Voice is in the large number of communications it can generate with a very minimal investment of time on the part of the sender.
So once again, the budget process has begun, and we need the cooperation of everyone in the Catholic school community to advocate on behalf of the students in our schools.
Thanks for your timely response to this request!
