A Message to Parents

Dear Parents,

There is parking on the east side of the South Building near the Handicapped Entrance - especially for those who need to use our elevator.  

For Grandparents' Day: if your child's grandparent is new to this day, here are a few helpful instructions. There is parking straight across from the South Building in the west lot.  There is a Handicapped Door on the east end of the South Building.  This leads right to the elevator.  Breakfast serving begins at 7:45 am.  Grandparents may choose to have their picture taken first rather than wait in a serving line. Grandma and Grandpa should coordinate their arrival and meeting place with grandchildren. Sometimes grandparents wait quite awhile for their grandchildren to show up.  I suggest that they phone each other when they arrive.  Students will be waiting to meet them at the door, in the foyer, or downstairs in the cafeteria.  The schedule for the event is simple: breakfast and conversation, photos, tours if time, and Mass with Bishop Kettler presiding.  The event is concluded at the end of Mass at about 10:15 am. Parents are welcome at our liturgy.  If you have a grandparent with mobility issues, you should feel free to accompany them.  Grandparents will receive their photos in December.  

A reminder that we ask students to wear Cathedral shirts or sweatshirts. 

Take a few minutes to look at the photo montage that's available on our website: www.cathedralcrusaders.org.  There are a lot of smiling faces!

Mark Chamernick leads our accreditation process.  You will be receiving a parent survey from him soon.  Please take a few minutes to answer these survey questions (anonymous).  We have our accreditation visit in April 2016. 

A note from Campus Minister Deb Schnettler about our Food Drive:
Our goal was 10,000 points which equates to $10,000 of buying power/food for Catholic Charities food shelf emergency services.
We reached $13,455.00!!!
We did it this year with no double point days, and few incentive extras.
Catholic Charities is THRILLED!!!


At this time of year, we send our thanks to you parents for your continued support for Cathedral: teachers, support staff, administrators, coaches, programs, and activities.  You are the primary educators of your children and we partner with parents in the challenging and rewarding job of educating and forming young adults.  It is our responsibility to echo those messages that students hear at home about responsibility, work ethic, and commitment. We’re all saying the same thing and sharing the same goal: to raise educated, caring young adults with integrity and faith.

Thank you for sharing your children with us and believing in us.
