Grades and Sports News

Here are E's quarter grades. The difference between DeSmet and Brentwood is that his B+ in English is a 92, which at Brentwood would be an A, as would his 90 in Religion. His Algebra grade is an 89, which would be a B+ at Brentwood. So they definitely set the standard higher here, which is good.

English 1 Mr. Thomas Fontana B+
Spanish 1 Mrs. Carmen Bowman A
Algebra 1 Mr. Jeff Wendling B
Phys Ed 1/Health Mr. Pat Mahoney S
Biology Dr. Mariette Baxendale A+
Intro to Religion Mr. Anthony Fior B
Computer & Study Skills Mr. Ryan Sextro B+

Eric's good friend Patrick Sanner had to go to the hospital after his football game Monday. He had the ball and was hit pretty hard (E and I were at the game and saw it). We didn't even know he was hurt, but apparently he was over at the other team's bench being attended to by their trainer. Turns out he tore his spleen and fractured a rib. He was kept him overnight and doctors were going to operate because his spleen continued to bleed, but it finally stopped at 1:00 yesterday and he was released at about 4:00. He cannot participate in anything for 3 months. He is not even supposed to go to the Homecoming dance at Brentwood this Saturday for fear of someone being pushed into him, etc., but his mom feels bad for the girl he is supposed to go with, so Eric has been appointed his bodyguard for the evening :) Eric is going to the dance with a girl named Olivia, so we've (that would be ME) got to order a corsage and go clothes shopping for the big night. Will post pictures later so you can see my handsome boy.

E Sports Update (sounds like a TV show): He is still playing fall baseball. Doesn't get to pitch much because there are several pitchers on the team (and I mean SEVERAL). He does play first base a lot, which he likes. He has a game this Saturday but I think so many kids are going to the Homecoming dance that his team may have to forfeit. E is playing basketball twice a week at the St. Louis Basketball Academy through November 5th. And all I can say is, thank you Lord that he is NOT playing football.
