The spirit of Cathedral continues to thrive during this time away from the Close. Teachers, staff, students, and families have come together as a community in a myriad of ways, ultimately highlighting our strength as members of one Cathedral family.

This strength was on full display during Spirit Week, which took place from May 11-16. If you were not able to participate, stop by the Spirit Week webpage and view the Spirit Story Videos recorded by faculty, families, and your fellow alumni!
Time is running out to submit a tribute for   Chaplain Patti Welch , Dr. John Vitale , and Ms. Ann Bryant as they embark on new adventures and we celebrate their legacy. Consider recording a video or posting a photo to share memories or words of gratitude for their impact on our community. Each link is individualized for each honoree, so you can submit tributes one at a time. You can submit for one, two, or all three if you would like! All submissions are due by Friday, June 12.
An anonymous alumni donor has generously offered a $5,000 Alumni Spirit Challenge Grant if we are able to increase the number of alumni gifts to the Annual Fund by 50% before June 30, 2020—the end of our fiscal year. 

Every gift continues to strengthen the financial foundation of our beloved school, helping Cathedral respond to increasing operational needs in light of the pandemic and maintain our commitment to equity and inclusion through financial assistance for families whose circumstances have changed.

We are deeply grateful for your care, support, and presence in our community; thank you for remembering and celebrating the spirit of The Cathedral School.
The Classes of 2019 and 2020
Mentor Current Cathedral Students

As 7th graders begin to look ahead to the high school process and 8th graders prepare for their next chapter beyond Cathedral, Ms. Berney and Mr. Koo from the High School Counseling Office coordinated two virtual mentoring sessions for students discussing the transition from 7th to 8th grade, as well as from 8th to 9th. Ms. Berney and Mr. Koo began each meeting with a few prompts. From there, the students confidently took over the conversations.
