From the editor; to our readers: Thanks for a great first month!
To our readers:
A month ago, Mr. Zurn called me into his room during the end of my fourth period class for reasons unbeknownst to me. When I arrived, he essentially said, “Hey guess what. I am the new advisor for the newspaper, and you are going to be the editor-in-chief.” Immediately, the ideas started spinning in my head for where we could take the newspaper, and the first priority was getting it online.
If by the end of the year, we had a website, I would be happy. Little did I know that in under a month, a half-dozen students would have already contributed to articles, events would be covered in great detail, and feature stories would be up and running too. It has happened very quickly, and that is thanks to you, our reader – we are already averaging more than 100 views per article, which is certainly great incentive to churn out high-quality, informative content.
As we head into the summer, I want to thank you for reading what we have put out thus far, and ask you to stick with us over the summer and into the next school year. Stay tuned for exciting coverage of the Fair Queen Contest, including profiles on all of the candidates, game-by-game analysis of sporting events, and more. It is an exciting time for LSNews.org, and I am glad you are a part of it. To steal a slogan from the New York Times, we at LSNews.org will publish “All the L-S News that’s fit to print”, and we will do it in a creative, engaging, and timely fashion.
In case you missed any of it, here are some of the best student-produced articles we published during this school year:
- May 24: The dog days of ... the school year? Aevidum aims to bring facility dog to L-S
- May 26: Model UN raises over $1600 for UNICEF, $760 for Demko scholarship
- May 27: History classes tour Gettysburg battlefield with Mr. Schreckengost
