August 24, 2017 blue notes

ALL-SCHOOL LITURGY TOMORROW

The all-school liturgy will be celebrated with Bishop Foys at St. Agnes tomorrow at 10 a.m.  Please remind your sons to wear their Mass attire (wrinkle free khaki dress slacks, white dress shirt, CCH tie, gym shoes are permitted with the exception of those who are participating in the Mass).  


STUDENT/PARENT AGREEMENT FORMS

About 100 students have not turned in their Student/Parent Agreement Forms.  These were due the first day of school.   It is a gold form that was mailed to you in mid-July with your son's schedule.  If not returned by August 31st, students will receive detention.  If you do not have the form that was mailed to you, it can be printed from the Back to School Info on the website (click here to access form). 

Reminder:  Please read the Student/Parent Handbook that is online.  There are several new policies in it.    

 

CELL PHONES:  

Cell phones are to be turned off and locked in the student's locker.  With all the tablets and various computers in the school, cell phones are logging onto the wifi and slowing it down. If a student is caught with his phone it could be taken for the day and DTs will be issued.

 

AMAZON REWARDS - Don't forget to use the Amazon link on the CCH website and on the bottom of this email when ordering from Amazon.  It costs nothing extra to you and CCH gets credit for the sale.  So far this year we  have been able to get an industrial size shredder and have replaced the refrigerator in the faculty dining room.    YouTube 

 

AUGUST LUNCH MENU - LUNCH MONEY
If you prefer to send your son's lunch money to school instead of using the online payment method, please have him drop his money in the box on the counter of the main office first thing in the morning.  This helps to speed up the lunch line.

Freshman $30.00

FATHER/SON EVENT

This year's Father/Son Event will be Sunday October 1. There will be a full day of activities on the football field along with a chili cook-off in the cafeteria and a cornhole tournament just to name a few. It is a great way to spend some quality time with your son. A link to the sign up page and additional information about the event is being finalized and should be available in coming editions of Blue Notes. Volunteers, including a photographer, are needed for this year's event. Please contact Brad Hanna at FatherSonEvent@covcath.org if you would like to join this year's planning committee.

 

ROSARY SERVICES ARE NOW HELD FOUR DAYS EACH WEEK 

Beginning this school year, the COLONELS FOR LIFE will be praying the Rosary in the Chapel on Monday mornings at 7:30 am as part of LIFE'S 5TH QUARTER'S DOOR PROGRAM (DAY OF ONE ROSARY) for a return to a Culture of Life.  On Friday mornings at 7:00 am (15 minutes before Mass) we will pray a Rosary for vocations coming from our CovCath community, for Bishop Foys, and the priests in our Diocese.

By adding these two additional Rosary Services, it will provide more opportunity for students and adults to attend a Rosary Service at CovCath since we have had in place for many years a Rosary Service on both Tuesday and Thursdays at 7:30 am which is sponsored by our Campus Ministry.

Please come and join us if your schedule permits. It only takes JUST 15 MINUTES and what a great way to begin your day!
