President’s Message

Dear Parents and Guardians,

Congratulations and God’s blessing upon the Cardinal Dougherty High School Class of 2008, their families
and friends. We thank the graduates and their families for the many sacrifices they made to arrive at this
joyous event. They now join the thousands of proud alumni from Cardinal Dougherty High School.

This Spring has offered us many events which highlight the wonderful traditions associated with Cardinal
Dougherty. The reunions provide us the opportunity to gather and remember the good times associated
with a Cardinal Dougherty education. As we know, in a Philadelphia crowd, there is usually a Dougherty
grad or someone married to a Dougherty grad. In school, our proms, award assemblies and fine arts
events create today’s memories which will be talked about in future reunions. I offer my congratulations
to the many students who participated in our spring sports and spring fine arts events. In particular I
want to acknowledge those who achieved All Catholic honors and all those seniors who have contributed
to our excellent programs.

I would like to highlight two particular moments from this Spring. The first was the burial of Michael
Crescenz ’66. The support and love shown Michael’s family by the Dougherty community was mentioned
often by Joe Crescenz ’74. The second moment was Mrs. Mary McDonald, our Assistant Principal for
Student Services and Head Girls Basketball coach, being awarded by Neumann College The 2008
Leadership in Catholic Youth Sports Award for secondary school coaches in Diocese of Wilmington,
Camden, Allentown and the Archdiocese of Philadelphia. These moments and many more like them
throughout the year give concrete witness to the strong Catholic Identity of the Cardinal Dougherty
community.

Finally, I am happy to announce, Mr. John Givnish ’73 will be our new Advisory Board Chair. We are
excited about the energy, network, and love of Dougherty John brings to our board. John replaces Mr.
David Manning ’62 who served as Chair for the last two years. David is looking forward to spending more
time with his family and helping us in the area of finances. David is a very generous person, always
giving of his time, talent and treasure. On behalf of the entire Dougherty community I express my thanks
to David.

As I have mentioned before, our parents are the best marketers we have in your neighborhood. Please
encourage your neighbors to consider Cardinal Dougherty for their sons and daughters.

If there are any comments, suggestions, or ideas you have for Cardinal Dougherty, please do not hesitate
to call me.

God bless you,
Reverend Carl F. Janicki, President

                                              Principal’s Message

Dear Parents, Guardians and Friends:

On April 15, 2008 the school conducted assemblies for the Freshmen, Sophomore, and Junior classes. The Senior
class had theirs on April 18, 2008. Each class had their own Assembly but all classes heard the same message.

The topic of the Assembly was “Internet Safety for Teens” and there was a 45 minute overview of various topics.

 The topics covered/discussed were:
                             a) On-line predators
                             b) Exposure to inappropriate material
                             c) Revealing too much about yourself
                                     (name, age, school, etc.)
                             d) Spyware, spam and scams
                                     (check legitimacy of websites)
                             e) Cyber bulling
                             f) Respecting other peoples privacy on-line
                             g) IM (instant messaging)
                             h) On-line gaming
                             i) File sharing (legal aspects of files)
                             j) Social networking (ex: “My Space”)
                             k) Web cams
                             l) Blogging
                             m) Cell phones; text messages; filming
                             n)
As parents, you should be aware of how your children are using all of the above aspects of technology. Remind your
children of the real-life consequences of what they post; who they are talking to; what pictures of them are on the
internet; what information they have posted about themselves (example: age, phone number, address, etc.).

Perhaps you could use this “newsletter” to engage your child in a conversation about privacy, posting, chat-rooms
and other topics. It’s very important for your child to trust you should they come across material that impacts them
or makes them worry.

         For further information I refer you to:
                  1) Net Smartz (1-800-843-5678) or www.netsmartz.org
                  2) Cyber Tipline at www.cybertipline.com
                  3) ICAC (Internet Crime Against Children) at www.icactraining.org

Congratulations to all our Graduates and their families.

Sincerely,
Thomas F. Rooney, Jr., Ed.D.
