A Message to Parents

Dear Parents,

 A reminder that the school day on this first day of school for 7th graders ends at 2:30.  The students will go through their whole schedule, but it is shortened.  

If you brought fruit or a salad to the picnic last week, we have your bowl in the Main Office.  The picnic was a great success, probably the largest we've ever had.  

The library is open Monday through Thursday until 4:30. On Friday, the library closes right after school.  

Our Chinese teacher has not arrived yet.  She has an interview related to her visa today, so hopefully she will be here shortly.  

We are still in need of three more host families for international students. This is an opportunity to learn about the culture of another country and to teach a Cathedral student about us. There is compensation for hosting a student.  Please contact Taffy Kroll at 257-2145 to learn more about this opportunity. 

We plan to hand out laptops in the first day or two of school.  I have had lots of students pleading to get theirs soon.  Important: we will have two sessions on Aug. 25 at 6:00 pm and 7:30 pm for seventh grade students/parents and all new students/parents to pick up their MacBooks.  If you can't make it to one of those evening sessions, you will need to schedule a meeting with Karen Meinz, our technology director, in order to be issued a laptop.
