    I was reading through your high schools online newspaper, digging for pointers to give my fellow classmates for our 6th edition of our paper and I would just like to say I am very impressed with your work. The layout alone made me want to read more. Your writers allow themselves to write with their voices and not what everyone wants to hear which definitely stands out comparing to other newspapers I’ve glanced at. There is so much variety and spunk within the articles and I enjoyed reading every single one I clicked on. I will definitely come back every week to read more.

    Sincerely, Caitlin Patrick
