Newspaper Club

Bringing The Cardinal Times to your home!

Cardinal Times – Spring 2023 Edition (Published May 19, 2023)

Cardinal Times – Fall 2022 Edition (Published December 8, 2022)

Each year, Cardinal’s 4th and 5th grade reporters write the stories that matter to Cardinal students! Published twice a year, the Cardinal Times features news about the Cardinal community. 

Are your kids curious? Do they love to write (or might, with some encouragement)? The Cardinal newspaper club, led by working media professionals, teaches them how a news publication comes together. During the six-week session, the kids will identify compelling stories, practice interviewing skills, write a catchy lead, and meet working media professionals. The club meets at school on Tuesday mornings at 7:45 AM.
