Dear Crusader Nation, 

To our returning Crusaders, welcome back to the 2024-2025 school year! On behalf of the Home and School Association, we welcome our new Crusaders to our Cardinal Newman family. The Crusader Spirit is contagious, and we look forward to sharing many memories with you. 

As parents of a Newman Alum, Ryan ’19, and Jill, a Newman Senior, we can assure you that getting involved at Cardinal Newman will make for a terrific experience for you and for your student. 

All parents with students enrolled at the school are Home and School Association members. The Home & School Association at Cardinal Newman High School allows parents to become involved with their children’s activities while providing an invaluable service to our school. We welcome and encourage the participation of every parent. Being active will not only be a plus for Cardinal Newman, but you will make lifelong friends! 

We encourage and hope that all families will opt to share their time and talent, as we know this is what benefits the students and the school the most. Please complete the “Willingness to Serve” form, which lists the many volunteer opportunities available to assist you in getting involved, meeting new and lifelong friends. Please complete this form by Monday, August 5, 2024. You will be notified by the event chair before the scheduled activity. Be sure to track your hours using FACTS. PLEASE note that Parents are responsible for logging in their own hours, which must be completed in FULL by March 24, 2025. Any hours completed after that deadline may be transferred into the next school year. Please contact Mary Martens if you have any questions about the volunteer tracking process. 

Visit the school’s website at to obtain the latest information about upcoming events. Nicole Cox, Communications Specialist, also does a phenomenal job of informing us by e-mail of the happenings around the school. We encourage you to e-mail her at throughout the year with information to forward to the Newman family. 

We are excited to begin the 2024-2025 academic year with you and WELCOME ALL our Crusader Families to our “home away from home” as we come alive with “CN Spirit!” If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us. 

God Bless,
