Weekly Announcements


Dear Cardinal Parents and Guardians:

We hope all of our Mothers on the Cardinal staff had a wonderful Mother’s Day! 

Important Reminder: 

Progress report grades are available to parents today. 

The school closes at 5:00 everyday.  There should be no reason for students to still be at school unless they are in practices or meetings.  Please make sure that rides are here by this time.  “The Gathering” (i.e., study hall) after school has ended  because of so few students (one or two) reporting.  Students have been good about waiting outside for their rides and or studying in the commons or reception area.

  • Counselors, administrators, and teachers have been meeting with seniors who are not passing their classes to get them on a plan to pass and make it to graduation.  But they must do their part if they expect to graduate.  If you have a senior in this group and have questions, please contact your senior’s teacher(s) and counselor.
  • Seniors must have paid all financial obligations before taking exams and have made up the required  time for too many absences in order to be cleared for graduation.
Financial Obligations:  Must be cleared for all students prior to taking final exams.  This includes tuition payments, dining hall balances, and any fines owed the school.

Upcoming Events
: Please refer to SPRING EVENTS SITE for upcoming events and assemblies along with the schedules for each event to make sure that you have these on your calendars.

No Dress Down Day:  This Friday because of AP testing for students and staff. Please remind the students again.  They did a good job last week.

Advanced Placement Testing:  Continues this week.  Bells will not be ringing and students will be responsible for getting to their classes on time. Teachers will determine if a student is tardy. We have more students taking AP tests this year along with more tests being administered.  The AP teachers have prepared them well and if the students do their part in the preparation, they will be successful.  

Senior Panoramic Picture: Is this Thursday at 10:00 in the large gym. Seniors must be in full uniform including blazers. Please remind your seniors of this event. Senior teachers, sponsors, are included in the picture along with administrators. 

Signing up for Summer School for All Students, including new students:  We will offer Health, Speech and Computer Science (Regular and Honors CS) online.  These courses are required for graduation.  If you wish to have your students take one or two of these classes to have more room in their schedule next year,  you can now register your students. And if you need additional information, please contact or  There are still a few spots left. Here are the registration links for each course:
