Show off your Knights of the Holy Ghost spirit wear! Fall athletes are invited to wear their uniform jersey, and all students not on a team may wear CA spirit wear in place of their uniform top. There will be an all-school Recognition Ceremony for the athletes in the Sanctuary during Lyceum.
Founders of the JPII Project (Krakow, Poland) are bringing a first class relic of St. John Paul II to Chesterton Academy. We will be hosting a special Mass at the Edina Campus followed by veneration of the relic. There will be a lunch presentation for students on the JPII Project during lunch. Note: We will not be attending Mass at Holy Family that Tuesday.
Fall Parent-Teacher conferences will take place on October 25 (St. Paul Campus) and October 26 (Edina Campus). Sign up online for a 30-minute slot. You may use this time to meet with as many teachers as this time allows. However, we do ask that you limit each meeting to no more than 10 minutes. If you think that a longer meeting may be needed with a particular teacher, you are welcome to schedule an additional session with this teacher for a different day. There will be no classes on Friday, October 26.
