Journalism Club begins for 2010-2011 school year

The first East Middle School Journalism Club meeting was held Thursday, Sept. 2, in Mrs. Angel Mense's classroom. Students began by learning some of the basics of journalism and were given the opportunity to write an article about the first meeting. Two of those articles are featured below:

On Thursday, Sept. 2, East Middle School held its first Journalism Club meeting of the 2010-2011 school year in Mrs. Angel Mense's room. The club is sponsored by Mrs. Mense and Mr. Randy Turner.

The club will meet every Thursday after school. Journalism Club lets others know what is going on at the school, while teaching students the basics of journalism.

While at first Mrs. Mense, Mr. Turner and eighth grader Valerie Royer will handle assigning the articles, later the assignments will be almost completely made by the students.

As a former Journalism Club member,myself, I know the students will absolutely enjoy it! I hope each and every one of them have as much of a blast that my friends and I did! (It also helps in Comm. Arts and Reading, but don't tell them that!)
