Cathedral Parent Council Mission Statement
The Cathedral Parent Association welcomes all parents/guardians of Cathedral students to membership. The Association meets monthly to facilitate the interaction and collaboration of Cathedral parents and families, in a spiritual environment, always for the ultimate good of the school.
Cathedral Association Purpose
The Parent Association is the primary organization of all parents/guardians of students of Cathedral High School. The Association allows parents/guardians to become involved in the work of the school by providing volunteer opportunities and by encouraging parental participation. The Executive Board of the Association, The Parent Council, coordinates many activities on behalf of both parents and school.
- Acting as a resource for faculty and staff;
- Coordinating parent volunteers in many areas of school life;
- Fostering and maintaining parent-to-parent and parent-to-school communication;
- Sponsoring events of interest to school parents
Cathedral Parent Association Goals Statement
The goals of the CHS Parent Association, in consultation with the school’s leadership, are to conduct activities to support the achievement of the school’s goals and the recognition of the school’s administration, staff and faculty.
More specifically, Parent Council plans events for CHS staff, parents/guardians and students, which includes such things as Post Prom Party, and topic specific speakers for parents and/or students. We also support CHS faculty and staff with conference meals twice a year, monthly treats in their lunch room, and by providing grants for classroom needs funded by the sale of CHS’s annual phone books.
Monthly meetings are held for parents/guardians every second Tuesday of the month beginning in September and continuing through April. At our meetings we share information about CHS, have guest speakers who provide pertinent information about our school, and allow parents/guardians to keep in touch with what is going on at school.
