I am excited to announce the date of our next Journalism Club meeting. We will meet on Wednesday, November 5th, 2014 to discuss and finalize our school newspaper. This is a VERY important meeting as we will be making tons of decisions that will guide the future of our paper.

Mr. J (Advisor)
Thanks to all of you who attending our first meeting of the Helen Cox Newspaper Club. We have a lot of work to do to get this newspaper and website off the ground and running successfully. I think the most important things we need to figure out are:
1) What days and times are best to meet as a whole group?
2) Who will be our Editor in Chief?
3) What do we want to cover in the paper?
4) What will we name the paper?
I have created a Google Doc form that we can all use to answer these questions. I know Brendaysha is interested in running for the office of Editor in Chief, I don't know if anyone else is interested in that position. We will also need section editors for the Sports section and also for the Layout of the paper/website.
Please complete this Google Doc form by Friday, October 17th at the latest. I will update with a new blog post and email/text at that time.
