As a reminder, we will see you on Monday, September 17th. The morning program begins at 10:15am and ends at 11:45am. Break and lunch is from 11:45am - 12:30pm. We will be providing students with a printed schedule on the first day that they can keep in their binders.
Journalism begins promptly at 12:30pm and ends at 2pm (with optional club time from 2-2:45pm). When dropping off and picking up, please use the EAST side entrance of the church. When driving into the back parking lot, continue on around to the side of the church. If you are running late, please call or text Angela or Jayne, and walk your students up the stairs so we know they will arrive safely and at the right place.
Please bring to journalism class a three ring binder with loose leaf paper (or a notebook). The three ring binder is for handouts. Also, VERY IMPORTANT, please bring to first class any recent issue of a national newspaper (NY Times, NY Post, USA Today, etc.). We will be using the same paper for the first 2-3 classes; taking it apart, and studying not only the different sections, but different styles of writing. Since we don't have nine laptops, we will be "kicking it old school" and actually using real newspapers vs. on-line newspapers (although students may be looking at on-line publications from their home computers). It might take a little effort to find a newspaper these days -- try Starbucks or the grocery store!
See you Monday!
