Principal's Message

Dear Cathedral Parents and Guardians,

As a reminder, Friday, February 23, is the set-up day for our school's largest fundraiser, ShamrAuction. February 23 is an A-Synchronous E-Learning Day. The instructions for the day are as follows:

1) Alpha teachers will have an attendance question posted in Schoology. This will serve as the attendance for the day.
2) If students do not answer the Alpha attendance question by the end of Alpha period (10:00), they will be marked Unverified.
3) Students must check Schoology for assignments and expectations from each class of the day. For example, February 23 is a Day 3, so class periods Alpha, E, F, G, A, and B will have assignments posted for the day. The deadline for assignments to be turned in is up to each educator.

On Wednesday, March 6, all Juniors must report to their assigned classroom by 8:30 a.m. for the SAT.  Morning buses will run at the regular time. The test is two hours long, but we will have some extended-time test takers. Everyone should be done with the SAT by 12:20. Afternoon buses will depart campus at 12:30.  Lunch will not be served. Freshmen, Sophomores, and Seniors will have an E-Learning Day.  Again, Sophomores are having an E-Learning Day with Freshmen and Seniors on March 6. 

Also, due to safety concerns centering on the timing of the solar eclipse, Cathedral will have an E-Learning Day on April 8. Instructions for the day will be sent closer to the date.

I look forward to seeing many of you at Saturday's ShamrAuction. I'd like to especially thank our ShamrAuction sponsors and donors. Your generosity enables us to educate the hearts and minds of students who come to us from all across central Indiana!

God bless, and Go Irish!
Julie Barthel
