Welcome Letter

November 2020

Dear Cathedral School Parents,

 

On behalf of the Parents Association (PA), it is my pleasure to welcome you all to this year’s Cathedral School Parents Association community.

 

We hope everyone is having a safe and productive school year.  During these unprecedented times of the COVID-19 pandemic, the PA activities and actions will be adjusted to follow health mandates and put everyone’s safety first.  Be certain, however, we will do everything we are able to continue to fundraise, invest in enriching our students’ school experience, and support our faculty and Head of School.  It is our goal to create school spirit and a sense of community and joy, organize appropriate events, and honor Cathedral traditions.
