A Message from the Principal

Dear Parents,

Governor Dayton has canceled schools on Monday due to the expected severely cold weather. (Students are thrilled!)

Please join us at the Benefit for Alyssa Lommel, Cathedral grad and UMD student, who was involved in a cold weather accident in December. The benefit is this Sunday, Jan. 5 at the Blue Line South, 11:00 am to 3:00 pm. Enjoy a spaghetti dinner, meat raffle and silent auction. All proceeds will go to the Alyssa Lommel Fund at Bremer Bank.

Thanks to the efforts of junior Ethan Rajkowski, we are selling "Stay Strong, Alyssa" bracelets ($2.00). All proceeds will go to the Alyssa Lommel Fund. You may purchase them in the Main Office, and they will be sold at upcoming sporting events. Consider buying one for every family member.

Cathedral Girls' Basketball team will be hosting JAM the Gym for PAA athletes through 8th grade on Friday, Jan. 10. Students wearing blue/gold or their team jersey will receive free admission with chaperone. There will be a shooting contest during halftime with prizes. JV and C-Squad games start at 6 pm and the Varsity game begins at 7:30 pm.

We will host a parent meeting to discuss the PLAN results (sophomores) on Tuesday, Jan. 7, 7:00 to 8:00 pm in the library. Students were given their results, so parents should bring a copy of those results to the meeting.
