What is STRUT Week?

STRUT Week is a new tradition at Newcastle High School. STRUT Week's mission is to benefit our community through fundraising. Each year, we plan to pick a community member or non-profit organization and dedicate a week to raising money to help them.

THE WHY BEHIND STRUT WEEK?

STRUT week is Newcastle High School’s newest community outreach project. Newcastle High School’s student council leadership class wanted to create a philanthropy week to benefit our community, so we came up with the idea of STRUT week. The acronym STRUT stands for Students, Teachers, & Racers, United Together. Our goal for STRUT week is to not only benefit our community, but strengthen the bond between our high school and community, and start a long-lasting tradition at Newcastle High School. This year, we are fundraising for our earth science teacher, Mr. Kauk, who was recently diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. He is unable to teach for the rest of the school year, and has undergone many difficult procedures. We want so show that his Racer family stands with him in his fight against cancer.
