Class of 2018 closes a chapter
Tuesday, June 5th, 2018 marked a beginning and an end for the Class of 2018. Beginning with practice and a pancake breakfast, ending with thrown tassels and sugary cakes, the Cathedral hosted a warm celebration for our leading class. Scroll down below to see more of the celebration!
A Final Goodbye
from Maivi
I want to say goodbye.
and encompass
the black and white memories
that have painted themselves
on the walls of our minds. 
picture frames hung carelessly
slanted and crooked,
among the chipped paint of
what we once called home.
they swim in a sea of nostalgia
throwing currents against the rocks,
smoothing our jagged edges,
turning glass into crystals,
constructing person after person.
we were all laid upon these barren halls.
feet slipped into new shoes of new minds,
hands groping what was given
reaching for dreams that hung
upon the ceiling like sparkling stars
chasing gray clouds endlessly,
and the moon, a flawless ring against the soft
of blue sky,
observing our short lived youth.
we waved our soft hands in goodbye
the first day of Pre-K,
now we raise our caps in gratitude
the last day of eighth grade,
I want to say goodbye. 
and pull heart strings
as we grant our passage way,
through the halls, down the alley.
off to the next chapter we wander,
lost and unsure but willing. 
we salute with our hands to our heads
as the next battle greets our bullets,
but we keep in memory, al the black and
white photos
that hung along the barren walls.
