A Message to Parents

A Message From The Principal

Dear Parents,

It's Catholic Schools Week! Please take the time to speak to a neighbor or family member who has a child who might be a good fit at Cathedral.  We know that the best advertising is word-of-mouth, neighbor to neighbor, parent to parent.  Our big event for the week is a Catholic Community Schools Liturgy with Bishop Kettler tomorrow at 9:30 am in the North Gym.  You are invited and welcome to attend; we'll squeeze you in somewhere among the 2200 students who will be attending.

Parents of Juniors: Once again, we will do some significant (2 full days) test prep before the April ACT test.  I went ahead and ordered books for all of the juniors because I saw them for almost half-price ($12 instead of $19.99). The small fee ($15) that we charge for this special prep allows me to purchase a few snacks for the students, and to give each of the teachers a small gift certificate. If you are wondering whether you should sign your student up for one of the test prep offerings that come to you in the mail, it's just not necessary.

Senior Parents, you will be receiving a letter about an important parent meeting on Monday, February 13, at 7:00 p.m. in in the Commons. A great deal of information about graduation activities will be shared this evening. Please make every effort to have at least one parent attend this meeting.

Prom dress exchange:
Bring in your used prom dresses and pick out a “new” dress at no cost. This dress exchange is open to everyone who is searching for a prom dress.
Drop off your used dresses in the office at Cathedral High School.
Please contact Teresa Dvoracek at mtdvoracek@charter.net in order to set up a time to try on dresses.

Important Date Change: Our next Middle School Band/Choir Concert will be on March 7, not Feb. 28.

Our Prom Committee met for the first time this morning.  I know that students may already be shopping for prom attire.  Please keep this dress code in mind:

For young ladies:

  • Prom dresses should be modest and event/age appropriate
  • Dresses should not be low cut in front or back or too revealing
  • No cut-outs
  • No two piece dresses with midriff showing
  • No high cut revealing leg slits
  • If short, no more than 2 inches above the knee

For young men:

Formal attire: tux, suit, sportcoat, or shirt and tie, long pants

 

Blessings,

Lynn Grewing
