It’s been a hot minute since the last Letters from the Editors, but we’ve returned! So, let us give you a belated welcome back to the school year. We launched into 2018 with great ideas in mind and high hopes for the rest of the semester. Both newspaper and yearbook had a rough start to second se...

It’s the most wonderful time of the year — first semester is over, the Christmas tree is glittering, the kitchen is warm with joy and special projects are finished. If you haven’t seen our special project, “Shawnee: Keep it Local,” yet, then you’re missing out. We covered everywhere from ShananiGan...

Second semester is underway, and man, do we have a lot going on. Over winter break, the three of us got together and made official decisions regarding our newspaper special project. In a 12 minute discussion, we agreed upon At 5900 Monticello Road: a collection of stories about the most special location...

After finishing our first semester as being Mill Valley News editors-in-chief, we can come to the conclusion that it’s a bit of a challenge, but the payoffs are great. Last month, Mill Valley News ranked fourth at the Best of Show competition in Indianapolis, Indiana, giving us recognition for the h...

As first semester of our senior year comes to a close, we could not be more proud of our staff’s accomplishments. It’s kind of scary that we’ve now finished our fourth issue — leaving us with only four to go. It may sound cliche, but time has honestly flown by. It’s been a fun year, even though it...

Welcome back to our blog where we discuss the happenings of the JagWire newspaper. After completing issue one, there was a huge sigh of relief. Issue one is the hardest issue each year because we’re still getting into the swing of how everything should work throughout the production cycle. The new s...

For the three of us, senior year didn’t exactly feel like a reality until our adviser Kathy Habiger asked us what we wanted to do for yearbook staff bonding. She suggested painting rocks, but as much as we love arts and crafts, we didn’t want to get that messy with our staff. That’s when we rea...

Starting this year off was hectic to say the least. We wanted to really start something new this year and our idea was to put out a back-to-school issue. Unfortunately, the new computers weren’t working (at all) and we were left with good ideas for content and nothing to do with it. So, in order...
