Welcome back to Letters From The Editors. This past week was our last week of assigned web content for the semester, and in honor of that, we decided to do something special — another special project, actually. So, the JagWire staff profiled 11 students and a staff member who do interesting things...

Welcome back to Letters From The Editors. In our last blog, we were getting ready for Thanksgiving (read: relaxation time). More importantly, we mentioned our preparations for covering the state football championship. State football wasn’t our first major event to coordinate coverage for, so finding a repor...

Welcome back to Letters From The Editors. As you know, we have a lot going on in our lives. Managing our time isn’t always the easiest thing between AP classes, college preparations (LOL) and social lives. On top of regular high school student stressors, we also happen to run a school news website ca...

This week, we’ve been thinking a lot about bonding. We’re finally at the point where we know a lot of the new staff members pretty well, and that makes things a lot easier on us. Also, we’ve had some pretty awesome bonding experiences this week, with staff members who we’ve known for a while. ...

Welcome back to Letters From The Editors. If you read our blog from Friday, Oct. 16, you remember Jena’s lesson, which contained her realization that she’s turning into J-Curt.

Welcome back to Letters From The Editors. As we’ve written this blog, we’ve realized that it’s actually pretty therapeutic. Sometimes, it’s good to debrief about what we’re going through, good or bad. So, while we don’t want this to turn super complain-y, it’s been a rough week and we need s...

Welcome back to Letters From The Editors. If you haven’t noticed, this week wasn’t a normal web week for us — we didn’t post our typical fare of sport and club updates, and we didn’t post any newspaper content. Instead, we posted 12 in-depth profiles of students who have overcome adversity...
