Message from the Principal’s Office

Dear Cathedral Parents and Guardians,

There seems to be some confusion regarding whether or not students need to complete service hours this year.  Please be aware that we ARE requiring students to complete their service hours for the 2020/2021 school year.  If you did not meet our Service Coordinator, Shannon Fox, at our virtual Meet the Teacher, please follow this link, and click on her name to watch a video explaining our service-learning program.  

The upcoming Fall Break is a great time for students to get their service hours started, and many agencies are open and need our help.   Please view our Christian Service Webpage for more information.  Also, be sure to have your student check this SignUp Genius link, which will soon be updated with new service opportunities. If you have any questions regarding service hour expectations, please contact Shannon Fox at Thank you in advance for helping encourage your students to become servant leaders! 

As a reminder, we will have an E-Learning day on Tuesday, October 20.  Students will be expected to follow the normal day 7 schedule and join their classes virtually.  Students must follow the Expectations for Online Learning we have in place.

Please note that a Parent Newsletter will not go out next week due to Fall Break.  However, you can find information for the next two weeks below. On behalf of Cathedral, I wish you all a very restful and safe fall break!

Calling all CHS Dads to Help Cathedral Build a Storage Barn!

CHS Dads’ Club is calling your name and needs your help! The Dads’ Club is excited to announce that they will be building a storage barn for Cathedral on Saturday, October 31.  This project is going to require a great crew of dads who want to serve Cathedral with the gift of time and hard work.  We will begin at 8:00 a.m. with introductions and prayer, and work together to build a large shed that will give Cathedral some much-needed storage.  Experience and carpentry skills are welcomed but certainly not required.  There will be work for everyone who is interested in helping, learning, and forming lifelong friendships!  If you are willing and able to join this building crew, please RSVP by emailing Jay Braun at

The Cathedral Dads’ Club also has other opportunities for dads to get involved with the school and make an impact on the Hill. The Dads’ Club has already accomplished great things this school year, and have lots more planned.  We know your schedules are busy, so feel free to simply come whenever you are available.  We can always use more hands!

Other Upcoming Scheduled Events Scheduled:

  • November 14, 8:00am – 12:00pm: Christmas Decorations – Set up
  • January 9,  9:00am – 11:00am: Christmas Decorations – Take down & store

To be included in CHS Dads’ Club email distribution lists going forward, please send a quick email to
