The Cardinals Nest PTA has been working on ideas to acknowledge students in a positive and uplifting way. They have come up with “Cardinal of the Month.”

In each grade PreK through 12, the teacher will pick two students in their class that they feel encompass all of the criteria for Cardinal of the Month. This is not based on academics as much as character and kindness.

The two students will then receive a certificate and a free slush in the cafeteria. Their picture will also be featured on the Cardinal Stritch High School & Academy Facebook page and website.

The criteria for Cardinal of the month:

C - Courteous

A - Accepting

R - Respectful

D - Determined

I - Inspiring

N - Nice

A - Accommodating

L - Loving
