Dear Cathedral Parents,

This week so far, much of our time has been spent testing freshman, sophomore, and some
upperclassmen in the ISTEP test. Non-testing Juniors and Seniors were asked to take a college
day on Tuesday, September 18th. As we continue testing, for all testing students, school on
Thursday will begin at the regular time. For all non-testing Junior and Seniors, the school day
will begin at 10:00 a.m.

I have also tried to organize this a bit differently to aid you in finding information. The segments
are:
             Dates to Remember
             Mass Information
             General announcements
             Clubs
             Service
             College/Vocational Information
             Athletics
             Prayer List.
I hope this arrangement will allow you to find what you need most readily.

We have heard that the students at Cristo Rey High School need business-casual clothing
for their one-day of work each week. These students go to school for four days per week, but
are assigned to an entry-level employment situation for the fifth weekday. Their salary goes to
help defray their school tuition. I would like to support these students and their families as they
try to give their children “wings” which will allow them to have a college-prep education. If you
have a business or business casual items in your closets that are not being worn anymore and are
in good condition, might you be willing to donate them to these students. If so, please bring
them into the front office of Cathedral. We will see that they are transported to Cristo Rey High
School.

Below you will find the schedule for all students during Thursday’s ISTEP+ testing.
Thursday, September 20, 2007
     THE GENERAL STUDENT BODY WILL HAVE NO LOCKER ACCESS UNTIL
        TIMED TESTING IS OVER!
     9TH & 10TH GRADERS AND 11TH & 12TH GRADE RETESTS:
        Testing runs from 7:34 a.m. – 9:55 a.m. Extended time students will run longer and
        those students will report to Period 5 class with a pass when they finish testing.
        Guidance Counselors will communicate with Retest Students on an individual basis as to
        their testing time(s) on Wednesday and Thursday.
     All Students follow the class schedule below
                               Thursday
        10:00—11:00              Period 5
        11:05—12:05              Period 6
        12:05—12:45              Lunch (Bring a sack lunch or purchase one for $3.00 in the
                                cafeteria)
        12:50—1:00               Period 7 Prayer

The price for the sack lunch during ISTEP will be $3.00, but it will not include lemonade as
in the past. The cause for this is the price increase. Students may purchase drinks from the
machines to accompany their lunch.

From the Office of Mr. Tom Greer, Vice Principal for Student Affairs:
Cookouts: After many of the football games a cookout is held for the entire Cathedral family
who return to school to welcome the team and to enjoy free hotdogs, drinks and refreshments.
The Commons is open to watch TV or play games. Many students and parents attend this fun
event. It is free and open to all. The schedule for the cookouts is September 21st, 28th and
October 12. Please mark your calendars and make plans to attend and meet new families. This
event ends at 11:00 PM. Why not come and celebrate with others in a safe, fun, free
environment!

Enclosed is a portion of the letter which we received from Coach John Kesterson, father of
Coach Jean Kesterson, this week.

                                                 3
Dear Family and Friends,

        On behalf of my children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren, and the entire Kesterson
Family, I would like to thank each and every one of you for your love, help, and support of my
bride, Rita Kesterson, during her life, health issues, and recent passing.
        …For all of you who sent cards, flowers, donations, and Mass Intentions, your
thoughtfulness is greatly appreciated. The cards provided comfort through our troubles, the
flowers showed the beauty of my lovely wife, and the donations and intentions will help us
carry on her loving memory. And thank you to family and friends who traveled to help us
celebrate Rita’s life. Your journey is a wonderful testament to the reach of Rita’s life. She
touched us all in a special way, no matter the boundaries.
        I wish to give a special thank you to the Cathedral High School family, especially the
Girls’ and Boys’ Volleyball Teams. Thank you for the “limousines” and the bag-piper at the
funeral; you gave Rita a uniquely Irish send off. And thank you for adopting my southside
Irish wife into your northside Irish family. The friendships Rita developed with students,
staff, and parents over my years of coaching were always special to her.
        Thanks to all of you for your thoughts and prayers, especially those I failed to mention
here. I pray my wife is in heaven with God now. I thank God every day that I was blessed to
spend my life with Rita. She blessed me with a love I can never repay and a family who
continues to bless my days. Thank you for celebrating a life well lived. She never met a
stranger, loved life, and touched us all with her miraculous capacity for love. God bless you
and yours!

       Sincerely,
       John K. Kesterson

School Security: I understand that Glen Beck recently had a program about school security and
advised parents to contact your child’s school to check on the security program there. Tom
Greer is our coordinator for security, and I would like to save him some phone calls by
explaining our program here.
         As our coordinator for security, Mr. Greer regularly attends meeting with personnel of all
schools and local emergency personnel.
         We also have had an emergency preparedness team. There are faculty members located
in strategic places around the building so that there would be a trained person there – wherever
the need might be. We do have a code known to all of the faculty in case something suddenly
should occur and we need everyone to report and position themselves in a safe place. This has
been in place since 1991. We are continuing to be as careful and protective of your child as
possible. This fall, we will still be refining certain parts of our plan. We cannot share all of the
intricate details since security demands that these not be in public knowledge but if you have
some specific questions please contact Mr. Greer.

Kelsey Fink (10) and Patrick Laskoski (10) are the winners of 2 Colts tickets for any game
of their choice. Congratulations!

Class Moderator, asking that you assist your senior in selecting appropriate dress for the play.

appropriate length dresses or skirts or dress pants. No students should wear jeans. We
appreciate your support in this area.

What is it like to sleep in a box? Habitat for Humanity is having a fundraiser to raise
understanding for the need of low-cost housing. Shack City, as it is called, is going to be an
overnight on the football practice field in which students sleep in boxes. It will include a soup
line, live music by Cathedral students, and games. We are planning to have it on September 29.
We wanted to ask you if you could include something about it in your next parent e-mail so that
we can generate awareness for it. It would need the following information:
     Shack City
     September 29, 2007
     Sleepover on the football field
     Raising awareness for the homeless
     Forms available from Mrs. Halstead or religion teachers
     $15 dollar donation
     7:30 PM until 8 AM the next morning, when we will celebrate Mass on the field.
         Families are welcome for the Mass, also.

                                                9

Big Brothers Big Sisters (BBBS): A BIG THANKS to the Cathedral community for the
welcome and support given to the visiting Littles from our community and IPS #106 BBBS
programs. The Littles left Cathedral beaming from ear to ear and we overheard one sixth grader
saying, “I could go to school here!” (It was the ultimate compliment!) Thanks also to the
Varsity Football team for their letters to the Littles and for all of the interested Cathedral students
who shadowed the BIGS and LITTLES during the game. Any students interested in becoming
BIGS should contact Mrs. Halstead immediately please because we are having interviews
conducted by BBBS of Central Indiana on Monday, Sep 24 and Wednesday, Sep 26 during
resource period. Paperwork must be completed before the interviews can be scheduled. There
are opportunities to be BIGS in the school program starting at Craig Middle School (our second
school of engagement) or in the BBBS community program. There is a tremendous need for
male mentors in both programs.

On Friday, we finished our first Senior Awakening Retreat with a new flair for the retreat
closing. Instead of transporting the students and their gear to Cathedral, where they met their
families, the families travelled to St. Bernadette’s on the southeast side of Indianapolis, where
the retreat closing was held. This proved to be a great change for the retreat because the students
were still in their retreat space, they had not lost enthusiasm through the time of loading and
unloading school transport vehicles, and their families could experience the “special space” they
had enjoyed for three days and nights.
        Senior retreat is a very special time for CHS seniors – often one of the two or three most
special experiences they cite as they look back at high school. For many of our students, this is
when they first begin to experience “the Cathedral family.” If you have a senior, you may want
to encourage them to take a retreat early in their senior year so that the connections made there
with their God and with other classmates can be present for the remainder of their last year at
Cathedral.

Sincerely,
David L. Worland
Principal
Cathedral High School
