A Message to Parents

Dear Parents,

A couple additional items related to Homecoming:

 - Monday is PJ Day; the rest of the week will be announced on Monday

 - Thursday is Muffins for Moms (and Dads), Student Ambassadors will   be handing out muffins to parents as they drop off their students on     Thursday morning. 

The Volleyball team is hosting Dig Pink Night on October 13 Money raised is donated to cancer research and we keep money local.  There will be a Pink Out at school during the day and in the gym at the game.    Volleyball players will be selling pink beads at school in the days prior to October 13. Dig Pink T-shirts are available for sale on the Cathedral website - on the Athletics and Activities page. Orders are due by next Wednesday, 9/30. 

Students in grades 10-12 have an opportunity, in February, to travel to Washington, D.C. and participate in the Close Up Program.  Much more than a field trip, Close Up Washington, D.C. is an exciting, weeklong study-visit to the nation's capital, where students will have the opportunity to experience the government and political process firsthand.  While most visitors to the city only see its monuments and museums, Close Up Washington, D.C. participants get an insider's view of the people and places that make the city unique.  An informational meeting for parents and students will be held on Monday, Oct. 5 at 7:00 pm in C118.  If you have questions, please contact Darcy Frank-Henrichs at dfrank@cathedralcrusaders.org or 251-3421, ext. 305.
