A Message to Parents

Dear Parents,

All students are welcome to a #Prom Dress Exchange in The Senior Lounge!Friday February 10th from 3:30 - 6:00 p.m.! Students that have a dress to contribute: Bring in any dress to the office prior to the event.Students that are unable to attend the event can contact Teresa Dvoracek at mtdvoracek@charter.net to schedule a time that they can come to her house if needed.

Volunteers are needed to help with computer updates. We would like to begin the project Monday, Feb. 13 and continue as volunteers are available. We are in need of volunteers for 6 days, but any hours you can help would be appreciated. If you would like to volunteer or have questions, please contact Karen Meinz at kmeinz@cathedralcrusaders.org. Thank you!

If you haven't had a chance to complete our survey about student laptops, it's super important that all parents do this.  It will only take five minutes and we need/want this information from all parents.  Go to this link: http://www.surveymonkey.com/r/V6CPDSX

Registration for 2017-2018 is coming up.  Our counselors are currently visiting classrooms to talk about new courses, course selection, college requirements, etc. Each student will receive a Course Catalog.  Our counselors encourage students to take this home and discuss registration with their parents. Then students will register for courses online during the school day. You will receive a packet with a tuition agreement and other forms.  In order to qualify for the reduced early bird registration fee, these forms must be submitted by March 24

The latest Counselor newsletter is now published on the Cathedral website. Here is the link : http://www.cathedralcrusaders.org/counselor-newsletter . There are many valuable items for parents in this newsletter! Viewers can read it online with live links (click on the rectangle in the bottom right corner to enlarge) or it can be downloaded from the link below the live version.

If your child received a letter from Laurie Keene in the Advancement Department regarding a thank you note to scholarship donors, please return this ASAP; it's not too late. This thank you may be dropped off in the Main Office. 

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.
