Cardinal Newman's 2013/2014 Student Council is off to a great start, as they have already provided a number of events and activities for the school. Starting in September, we welcomed the new grade 9 students to their first Newman barbeque, to make them feel a part of the CN Family right from the beginning! Additionally, we orchestrated our annual grade 9 dance, which was a huge success and allowed the niners to have fun and meet new friends as they danced the night away. This was followed by our Cardinal Newman homecoming week, where we facilitated spirit activities such as Spelling Bee, Pie Throwing, and our annual Door Decorating contest. These events got everyone even more excited and ready for the first home football game of the season on our new turf field! The student council also order ed a brand new line of spirit wear, which students are able to wear on Spirt Days. Since then, we have had many Spirit Days and other exciting events throughout the semester. Some of which include our Throwback Thursday Dance, inspired by the trendy "tbt's" on Instagram, as well as our second Prom which was a huge success at the end of November. We have also been busy raising funds for charities in the community, through annual events such as Halloween For Hunger and Adopt-a-Family. There are many more events and activities planned for the rest of the year and we encourage all students to participate and be active in whatever fun activity the Student Council is organizing. Please stay tuned to announcements and advertisements throughout the school year to discover all the ways the student council intends on keeping the school year busy. You can expect great things from this years council, as it is composed of 12 enthusiastic, promising, and hard-working individuals. We truly care about the quality of your time here at Newman, and are willing to do everything we can to ensure that these are the best four years of your life! Hope to see all of the students at our upcoming events!
