Dear Greely Community,

Welcome to your newspaper! Welcome to your space!

There are a number of great reasons why we sought to launch a newspaper at Greely High School!

We looked at our English curriculum and did not think it adequately promoted journalism as a profession students might consider exploring after high school.

We looked at our school and recognized an online newspaper would offer both students and staff a space to civilly express diverse ideas and tell their stories–the stories that happen on the stage, in the classroom, at the science fair, on the field, etc.

Finally, we looked at our modern day workforce and recognized the digital paper could also offer students a chance to practice 21st Century skills such as web design, podcasting, video production, publicizing through social media, photography, editing, and writing.

Full of enthusiasm we applied for a MSAD#51 Professional Leaning Grant to start an online paper. The Professional Learning Grant Committee approved our proposal and gave us a grant to get us up and running. We are so thankful for their support!

So now we turn to you, the Greely community, for your talent and energy!

Of course, we need students interested in learning the craft of journalism and reporting on the many amazing stories Greely has to tell. Still, reporting the news is just one purpose of a digital newspaper. Let’s explore together!

Whatever your talent, we will save a seat in the club for you.

This is your newspaper. Let’s make it a great one!
