 Newspaper and Yearbook Club

This club meets every Thursday after school. It is made up of students in fifth and sixth grade. Every month, club members create a newspaper to help keep the school community up to date on events and happenings at Cardinal Maida. The cost of each newspaper is 50 cents. Proceeds are used for technology.

The Yearbook Club is in charge of creating the yearbook for the entire year. They go through hundreds of pictures and choose the best images to display in the yearbook. They then use Microsoft Publisher to create a final product.
