Dear Junior High Parents,
August 9th 6:00pm: Back to School Bash in the gym
This is an opportunity for both you and your student to become familiar with our school. There will be used uniforms for sale, and new P.E. uniforms and Spirit Wear for sale.
August 10th 6:00pm: Junior High Orientation Meet in the Cafeteria
This is a more inclusive meeting designed specifically for 7th grade students and their parents, and any 8th graders who are new to CRHS. Information on the upcoming school year including expectations of your student, club/sports opportunities, and general "day in the life" information will be provided. This is on the heels of the Back to School Bash, but is more important to attend. 7th grade students and any new 8th grade students will get their schedules, can practice opening their lockers, and can see where their classes are. Please plan to attend and bring any questions you may have about Cardinal Ritter's Junior High. It is important that you and your student attend.
August 15th is the first day of school for grades 7-9 . Today is designed to ease your students into their schedules with a little less traffic in our hallways. School is dismissed at 2:00. You will pick your student up behind the school - the same place where they are dropped off in the mornings.
Students are expected to be in full uniform on day one. Please contact the front office if you have any questions. *Uniforms will be for sale at the Back To School Bash
Reminder that cell phones are not permitted in our Academic Wing. You may use your phones in the mornings in the cafeteria. Again, this begins day one. (Your student will always have access to the office phone to contact you if needed.) Thank you in advance for helping us enforce this policy.
We will celebrate liturgy (church) together on this day.
Thursday August 18th is also a Liturgy day. Students are expected to be quiet and respectful during school mass. We will stress the importance of this to our students before they attend.
We are looking forward to a great year with our Junior High students and their families.
Please do not hesitate to reach out with any questions. We want everyone to get off to a good start!
