Message from the Principal’s Office

 

Dear Parents and Guardians,

As we come to the end of another school year, I am full of appreciation and awe that we made it!  We worked through being in person most of the year during a pandemic, something that most other high schools could not accomplish.  We could not have done this without working together as a family.  My gratitude is stretched to its capacity!  Thank you for entrusting us with your students!  Through the highs and lows, this year has bonded us like no other year.  Even while wearing masks, eating lunches in the classrooms, and traveling one-way hallways, I have seen our students connect in such a special way.  They say that getting through hard times makes you stronger, and I am confident that Cathedral is stronger and better after navigating the difficulties brought on by things out of our control.

Congratulations to the Class of 2021!  I am so proud of our senior class for the leadership they modeled, especially this year!  They will be greatly missed, but I look forward to seeing the wonderful things they will achieve in their next phase of life.

Also, congratulations to all of our students as they prepare to move onto the next level in their high school careers!  I am already looking forward to the next school year.

This will be our final newsletter of this school year; however, information may be sent on an as-needed basis.  With that said, our business and administrative offices will be open this summer should you have any questions or need assistance.

I hope all of our families have a wonderful and safe summer!  May the love and laughter with friends and family fill your hearts, and may the peace of our Lord follow you each day.

2021/2022 Daily Schedule

As we continue to work diligently to tie up this school year, we have also been working hard on a plan for next year.  I am excited to share our Daily Schedule for the 2021-2022 school year.  While we will expand on this further in the coming weeks, I wanted to give our families a glimpse of our tentative schedule.  You will see that we have kept many things in place that were inspired by Covid.  However, there are also many changes that we feel will benefit our students and our school.  Some of these changes include:

– Start time (8:45)
– End time (3:15)
– No Mission Mondays
– Holy Cross Days and Special Schedules to limit interruptions in instructional time

If we’ve learned anything this year, we’ve learned the importance of being nimble. I am so proud of how our educators and families have embraced all of the changes we have had to put into place this year due to COVID.  Cathedral will continue to pivot as needed to educate the hearts and minds of our students with compassion and vigor. We will continue to be called to greatness and to do our best under all circumstances while being guided by our Mission and Holy Cross Core Values.  Thank you for entrusting us with your children!
