St. Andrew’s School awarded eight iPads and an iPad Cart by Diocese

St. Andrew’s Catholic School in Tecumseh kicked off the 2018-2019 school year with eight new iPads and an iPad Cart purchased with a grant from the Lincoln Diocesan Education Office. According to Fr. Craig Clinch, he and classroom teacher Elizabeth Brase, wrote a grant proposal for the iPads and cart because access to iPads would not only be beneficial for students at St. Andrew’s School, but will benefit them in the transition to public school in seventh grade as they will already be familiar with using iPads in the classroom. Technology is one of many methods to help students learn.

“Using technology, and specifically iPads, as one of those methods can help students today because it can serve as a motivation for learning,” said Fr. Clinch.

Tom Dieckgrafe Assisted in Rescue While He Was Vacationing in Wyoming

By Ann Wickett

“We were placed there for a reason,” said Tom Dieckgrafe of Cook, who assisted with the rescue of an 83-year-old woman from Utah while on vacation. Dieckgrafe was taking a tour through Bear Tooth Pass located north of Cody, Wyoming on July 17 when he assisted in the unexpected rescue mission.

Dieckgrafe was just getting off his motorcycle when members of his group told him of the need for a first responder. A woman named Daisy had just fallen down the side of a nearby mountain. Dieckgrafe, who has been a first responder for the Cook Fire Department for 26 years, was more than willing to assist. He and two other first responders named Jim and Chester, climbed down the mountain, hanging on to trees and rocks, in order to reach Daisy, who fell an estimated 60 feet.
