4. A message from Father Ben:
Dear Parents,
We have a great speaker that will be speaking to the students at CHS next week! Fr. Michael Schmitz will be addressing the school next Friday (Nov. 20th) from 2:00 PM until 3:00 in the North Gym. He will be talking about the theme “Living Your Faith Out Loud.” As many of you know, he is a very popular priest and speaker who is the pastor at University of Minnesota Duluth Newman Center. We will be sharing him with St. Michael’s and St. Joseph’s parish in Waite Park. Here is a link to learn more about Fr. Michael Schmitz: http://bulldogcatholic.org/about-fr-mike-schmitz/ Also, check out the events at St. Michael's parish where you also can hear him speak!

5. A note about a chance to help CHS students serve the world:
CHS hosts an annual mission trip to Africa to promote service and sacrifice. In June, 2016, 24 students are heading toTanzania. For a fundraiser, the students are taking orders for Thirty-One products. Thirty-One provides quality totes, handbags, storage containers and jewelry that can be customized. www.mythirtyone.com/nicolegosling Nicole Gosling will donate 20% of all sales to help fund this life-changing service trip. A folder which explains the fundraiser, including the 2015 Fall-Winter Collection, is available to view in the CHS Main Office. Products and displays will also be available at many of the home sporting events in November. December specials will become available on/about11/25/15, but all orders need to be submitted (on-line or in the orders forms in the back of the folder in the office) bySaturday, December 5, 2015to ensure delivery for Christmas gifts. Thanks for supporting this life-changing mission. 6. If you are new to Cathedral: we have an annual Grandparents' Day the day before Thanksgiving (Nov. 25, this year). It is one of the highlights of the whole school year. Please let us know if you have grandparents that we should invite. If they have already attended, they will automatically receive an invitation. Send names and address to Rose in the Main Office, either rmarsyla@cathedralcrusaders.org or 320-251-3421 - or you can register them online through the front page of our website.
7.Point of Impact Driver Education Supplemental Parent Program:
If you have a son or daughter whose 16th birthday is after January 1, 2015, be advised that the State of Minnesota is requiring that they document their practice driving hours with a parent or guardian and submit this documentation when they apply for their road test and license.
I have provided all students with a form to do this in classroom driver's education. If they have lost it, simply write down the date, times they drove, and keep a cummulative total until you can get a new form from me. They MUST have the appropriate form.
The State of Minnesota will require you to provide documentation that the student has driven 50 hours with a supervising driver of which 15 are night driving. Or, if a parent particiaptes in a parent driver education training meeting, this can be reduced to 40 hours of which 15 are at night. The first opportunity to attend a POINT OF IMPACT parent driver education meeting will be Monday, Nov. 16 from 6:30 to 8:00 pm in Room S103 at Cathedral. Please rsvp to Mr. Bjornstad if you are planning to attend by sending an email to bbjornstad@cathedralcrusaders.org with your child's full legal name and date of birth as well as the parent name who will be attending.
