Did you know that students involved in journalism earn higher grade point averages and significant scholarships, do better in college, and earn a name for themselves, all the while covering real topics for real audiences and gaining real-world skills? Lucky for you, applications are now being accepted for creative and talented individuals to join the Beak ‘n’ Eye newspaper team next school year. There will be a brief informational meeting in Mrs. Hansen’s room (Room 202) after school on Friday, January 5, to share the fun and exciting opportunities available in the world of journalism. And there will be snacks!!
