Homecoming Week Schedule 
Homecoming has begun! Here is a schedule for Homecoming Week 2016. Join us when you can, it’s quite a week! 

Purchase Homecoming Dance Tickets By TOMORROW

TOMORROW, October 11 is the last day to purchase Homecoming Dance tickets. Ticket will NOT be sold at the door.
Clarifications For FRIDAY
There has been some confusion over arrival time and dress code for Friday. Here is the best clarification I can make:

Arrival Time
Arrive by 8:00 a.m. and report to the Cafeteria for Senior Breakfast
Arrive by 8:45 a.m. and report to your First Hour Classroom for attendance

Dress Code
All Freshmen, Sophomores, Juniors and Seniors (not on the Homecoming Court) can wear jeans (no holes), shorts (with at least a 5-inch inseam) or cargo pants; no sweat pants, yoga pants, leggings or jeggings BUT those can only be worn if the student also wears a Central Catholic Spirit top.
The Homecoming Court will dress formally as they were all of last week.

National Merit Scholarship Semifinalist
Barret Lee (’17) is a Semifinalist in the 2017 National Merit Scholarship Program. He achieved this recognition due to his performance on the 2015 PSAT. Barret’s recognition represents less than one percent of the nearly 1.6 million high school students who took the test. Congratulations Barret!
National Honor Society Applications Due Friday, October 21
Last week, Mrs. Turner handed out National Honor Society applications to all eligible Juniors and eligible Seniors who are not already members.  These applications are due back to Mrs. Turner by Friday, October 21. If you have any questions, feel free to e-mail Mrs. Turner.
Hire A Saint
The Central Catholic baseball program is available to do any fall chores/odd jobs (leaf raking, garage cleaning, etc...) that you might need done around your house. The Central Catholic Baseball team is willing to do these tasks for a donation to the Baseball program. Members of the team are available now through November 20 to complete these odd jobs. To request work to be done, email saintsbaseball@comcast.net with task information, provide the equipment necessary to complete the job.
