Joining the Statesman not only means that you get to take part in writing and designing a news magazine read by over 4,000 people, but it also means that you join a family. The support and friendships that come from this class are incomparable, with the whole staff joining together to create nine annual issues.
- Attend class daily
- Participate in 10-15 monthly “layout nights” after-school until about 9 p.m. (design and lay out the Statesman). We get dinner, hang out and work in the computer lab.
- Pass out each new issue of newspaper before school starts.
- Attend two to four all day field trips each year.
Students must have completed Journalistic Writing and Advanced Journalistic Writing courses prior to joining. Both courses provide students with a base of knowledge in terms of writing and design and prepare them for positions on the school newspaper.
The Statesman is a scheduled daily class. Additional work may be required after school as needed. Contact the sponsor for more information and to learn about meeting times/location, or visit Student Activities with questions.
Maximum 30-40 students
