Cardinal Society of Poetry

The Cardinal Society of Poetry meets weekly in Room 302 with Mr. Rui Guimaraes. We meet not only to read and analyze canonical poetry but also to engage in the process of writing our own poetry with the purpose of becoming published poets in Cardinal Hayes' first electronic version of our very own Cityscapes.
Mr. Rui Guimaraes, Moderator

The Mission of Cardinal Hayes High School, a community based in Roman Catholic values, is to inspire diverse young men of the New York City metropolitan area to become lifelong learners and responsible citizens. We will accomplish this goal by encouraging students' spiritual and intellectual growth through a rigorous college preparatory program of academics, extra-curricular activities, and personal discipline.
