Good Afternoon, 6th and 7th Grade Parents and Students. 

Welcome to the final week! 

Please review the information below carefully and let me know if you have any questions.  



  • Final CCT: Please click here to access the final Cardinal Community Time's video.
  • The Great Yearbook/Textbook Exchange on June 11: I have attached a map containing instructions/directions for the day, as well as the label to put in your car.  
    • Important highlights from the document:
      • Put your child's textbooks in a bag.
      • For more than one child in a family, please make individual bags for each child.
      • Please include both on the inside and the outside of the bag, the attached bag return label indicating your child’s last name and grade.
      • Place the bags in your trunk.
      • Tape the label with your name and child’s grade on your windshield as you enter the driveway. Being able to see your child’s name and grade printed largely and clearly will help expedite the process.
    • We will do an alphabetized drop-off/pick up based on the following:
      • Last Name A-G: 10:00 a.m. – 11:00 a.m.
      • Last Name H-M: 11:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.
      • Last Name N-Z: 12:00 p.m. – 1:00 p.m.
  • Medicine Return: The nurse's office will be reaching out to each family to set up a day/time to return any medicine that they have for your child. 
  • Device Return: If you have checked out a school device, please email Mr. Shohdy to schedule a return prior to June 11. Mr. Shohdy can be reached
  • Parent-Student-Advisor Conferences on June 9 and 10: I hope you and your child are able to take advantage of the conference opportunities to close out the year. These conferences are designed to create a space for reflection and dialogue, and a time to process the events of the last couple of months in a safe, intimate space.
