Principal's Message

Dear Cathedral Parents and Guardians,

Due to the weekend weather forecast, we are moving graduation to our rain date, Monday, May 23, at 6 p.m. The forecast looks fine for late Sunday afternoon and Monday. The ground should have plenty of time to dry, and the forecast calls for 0 precipitation and a high of 68 degrees Monday afternoon. It will be a beautiful evening!

The gates will open at 4:30 p.m. Seniors are to be in place at 5:00 p.m.

We know the forecast could change for Saturday night/Sunday morning, but we don't want to wait too long to make a decision. We know that families need time to plan, and we want to make sure our families have plenty of time to plan accordingly. Please feel free to share this link for the graduation livestream. 

Graduation practice is still scheduled for Friday, May 20, at 10 a.m. In addition, Baccalaureate is still Friday, May 20, at 6:30 p.m.

Also, on Friday,  we will gather in the Welch Activity Center for the Irish 500. If parents and guardians wish to attend the Irish 500, we ask they do not arrive before noon. Lunch will be provided for students free of charge. Students may get a hamburger, cheeseburger, or hotdog. The lunch also includes chips, cookies, and water.  A Kona Ice Truck will be on campus, so students should bring cash with them on Friday if they wish to  purchase a treat. The Kona Ice treats run from $3 (Kiddie size) to $7 (King size in a collectible cup.) The Irish 500 will get underway around 12:15. School will be dismissed after the Irish 500. We estimate the festivities will wrap up between 1:30-2:00.

Please see the table below for next week's schedule.

There are a couple of items to note, please. Students are required to attend each class and review, even if they do not have a final exam. Also, please take note of the dismissal times for next week. Classes are dismissed at 2:55 on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday. School is dismissed at 12:05 on Thursday.

If you have not re-enrolled, please do so as soon as possible so that we can plan for next school year.

I am so proud of our students, our families, and our educators. It's been an incredible year, and I know the next few days are going to be spectacular as we honor the Class of 2022!

Go Irish!
