Cardinal Head K-12 Open House Sept. 1 from 4-8pm

We are proud to announce that the annual open house will include all students K-12 and their families this year. The Open House will run from 4:00 pm - 8:00 pm and will be an excellent opportunity for students to get ready for the first day of school. Students may locate their lockers and bring in their school supplies if they wish. Student schedules for the high school students will also be available at this time. Parents, this will also be a great opportunity for you to take care of some of the routine tasks that need to be completed at the beginning of the school year...lunch accounts, contact information, etc. We hope to see all of you there!

7th Grade & New Student Orientation will take place at 6:00pm in the Auditorium.
