A Message to Parents

Dear Parents,

Please thoughtfully consider hosting an international students for next year. There are so many good reasons to do this:
learn a new culture and language

create an international friendship that lasts a lifetime

experience the joys of having a new family member to love

support diversity and cross-cultural understanding in your own home

help make a difference in the world

practice hospitality and generosity

increase cultural awareness among your community.

Host families do receive a monthly stipend to help with expenses. We have an information session about hosting international students next Monday, April 13, in the CHS Library at 7:00 pm. We hope to see many families there! If you can't make this session, but would like more information, please contact Rebecca Brown-Medvec at 320-257-2145 or rbrown-medvec@cathedralcrusaders.org.

Tonight is our second evening of conferences (4:00 - 7:00 pm). Because of the rain, it is likely that outdoor games and meets will be canceled so most of our coaches should be present for conferences. Ms. Blommer, Mr. Kapsner, and Mrs. Steichen will be leaving at 6:30 on Thursday.

I hope everyone is making plans to attend Celebration of Seasons on April 25. It is so important that the whole community supports this important fundraiser. This is Cathedral's big event, and it benefits so many of our student activities.
