Newspaper Club Reflection by: Isabella H.

20 May

Newspaper club is a group of people that writes stories for the Leighton page. We post stories, interviews, and polls weekly. Our interviews are about teachers, students’ pets, and just plain old students! Interviews are really fun because you get to interview different people and get to know them. Stories are awesome because it feels like you’re an actual reporter looking for good stories to write about. Additionally, polls are interesting because you can see what people’s opinions and what they like the most. So it’s really fun, and I recommend joining newspaper club next year!
