On Tuesday, January 29, 2013, the whole school came together to watch the spelling bee. There were 14 students, 2 from each classroom ranging from 4th grade to 6th grade. Mrs. Schrant has been in charge of the spelling bee for about 15-20 years, she's not for sure. There were 9 rounds including a final round. All of the words were divided into categories such as compounds, diaphones, and affixes. Mrs. Schrant got all the words from Houghton-Mifflin Co. Noah Flynn took first place, second place was Mariana Ramirez, and third place went to Landon Dinkel.
Mrs. Schrant has been in a spelling bee before, but she got out on the word referee. She put three e's at the end instead of two.

On Sunday, January 27, HFE's 2013 Catholic Schools Week started off with the annual Chili Supper. The most popular part of this event is the famous dinner. At this dinner students and their families were served turkey sandwiches, chili, veggies, and the best homemade desserts.
There is also a raffle that kids and adults were able to enter to have a chance to win six different prizes. In the kids raffle, they had a chance of winning an electric scooter, Nitendo 3D D.S., $150 American Girl Doll gift certificate, doll house, the shark hat with a signed picture of Mrs. Wentling wearing it, and a free happy meal a week for a year. In the adult raffle, they could win $250 cash, $100 at Warren's Meat Market, $250 HFE Bucks, $250 for Next-tech, and a homemade afghan and quilt. All of the prizes in each raffle were donated by families. The raffle raised close to $8,000 setting a new record and crashing the old one of $5,500.
There was a silent auction as well. Every class put together a themed basket to be auctioned off. The highest sold basket was from KB, which sold for $550.00. In the basket the class had a quilt that a handprint from each student. Almost all of the items in the basket were made by the class themselves.
Most of the kids spend their time in the game room. In this room there are 17 games set up. There were specific games set up for young children and ones for older. At the games kids could win lucky bucks. With the lucky bucks they were able to get a prize. The cake walk was the only one were you could win all kinds of deserts. All of the 6th graders helped out at the games. They all had a great time being a part of the Chili Supper and thought it was a great way to start Catholic Schools Week.!

There are lots of awesome things about Kansas. On January 22, 2013 some students had their memories refreshed and/or learned about Kansas in a very fun way, thanks to Thad Beach. Mr. Beach played a lot of unique instruments and had a lot of cool things to show Holy Family Elementary. Mr. Beach has been to over 40 states and has collected instruments for about 40 years. He had other jobs before he started his show, but not since the late nineties when he started going to schools all over the U.S. and telling them about their states.
