A Message from the Principal

Dear Parents,

1. Please be careful as you pick your students up at the end of the school day, especially when it's slippery. We do remind students to watch for cars, but sometimes they seem to be so unaware, or they always believe that cars can stop for them.

2. Our holiday Band Concert is Monday, 7 pm in Holy Angels.

A percentage of all profits supports the CHS School Library/Media Center. Please stop by our table at the front of the store and pick up a book voucher.

In conjunction with our annual Barnes and Noble Book Fair, we are hosting a book drive committed to purchasing and donating books to our area's Head Start, Reach-up Inc. programs. Purchase a book for one of the area centers, serving birth to five-year-olds, at our book fair on December 8, and we'll take care of donating it for you. Newly purchased books can be dropped off at our table located in the front of the store during the book fair, or brought to the Library/Media Center at CHS any time before December 21.

Can't attend our Book Fair at Barnes and Noble? Visit BN.COM/bookfairs to support us online Dec. 8 to Dec. 14 by entering Bookfair ID 11239423 at checkout. If you have any questions, please contact Julie Notsch, Cathedral High School Media Specialist at jnotsch@cathedralcrusaders.org.

4. Don't forget that our Spirit Shop is a great Christmas shopping idea. We have all sorts of Cathedral apparel - something for every student.
