Many people see newspaper as just another easy elective, taken to fill up that empty space in your schedule.

Well, a lot of work actually goes into the school newspaper. Students have to come up with story ideas, which is WAY harder than you might think. There’s only so much to write about around here.

You have to research your topic, oftentimes going into classrooms and getting quotes from students or emailing teachers to get their opinions. Then, you have to find pictures, caption them, and place them in your story. Next, there are practically three editors (if you count Mr. Fullmer) who tell you what needs changing in you’re story, whether it’s grammatical errors or aesthetics. When it’s finally published, you move on to the next story and do it all over again.

I did not know what to write this week so I decided write about writing a newspaper story and all the work that goes into it. Turns out it is really hard to write THIS. So a little appreciation, SVHS? The newspaper doesn’t write itself.

Until next semester, have a wonderful break 🙂
