A Message to Parents

Dear Parents,

Our Sno Daze Dance (high school) is scheduled for Jan. 24 instead of Jan. 31. It will be held in our North Gym.
The boy's hockey team is having its annual Pork Chop Dinner this Sunday, Jan. 18,at the East Side VFW Post 4847, from 4:30 to 7:00 pm. Tickets are $10, and available from any hockey player or at the door. Thank you for your support!

An important message from Mr. Bjornstad:
If you have a son or daughter whose 16th birthday is after January 1, 2015be 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 cumulative total until you can get a new form from me. The State of Minnesota will require you to provide documentation that you have driven 50 hours with a supervising driver of which 15 are night driving. Or, if a parent participates in a parent driver education training meeting this can be reduced to 40 hours of which 15 are at night. The next opportunity to attend a POINT OF IMPACT parent driver education meeting will be on Monday, February 2nd from 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m.in room S103 of Cathedral. Please rsvp to Mr.Bjornstad if you are planning to attend by sending an email tobbjornstad@cathedralcrusaders.org

Recently we reminded students that our laptops should not be carried inside backpacks. We are finding that the weight of the books also in the backpack are seriously damaging the laptops. Laptops should be carried inside the covers/carriers that we provided - separately from backpacks. Please help us with this request, and check to make sure the laptop is outside a backpack when it comes home. Many schools do not allow backpacks during the school day, and we are moving toward that requirement, both for the safety of our laptops and for the health of our students.

We are looking for a server/dishwasher for food service. Hours are 9:00 am to 1:15pm. If you are interested, stop by the Main Office to complete an application, or contact Food Service Director Vicki Gohl at 251-3421, Ext. 124.
A reminder about our dress code: leggings, jeggings, yoga pants, and other skin-tight or spandex pants are not allowed, unless the shirt or skirt worn over the top is at least two inches below the fingertips.

Mark your calendars for Jan. 27. Our big event during Catholic Schools Week is speaker Erin Walsh. She will speak to parents that evening on raising children and young adults in a digital age. We will open this evening up to all parents of Catholic school children in St. Cloud. It's such a timely subject and Ms. Walsh is a well-known expert in this field.
