Starting in October, the Newtonite will post blogs regularly to theNewtonite.com. Each blog will be written by an individual or by two students and/or by faculty members. The blogs will have themes that pertain to the Newton North community, and bloggers will post bimonthly columns related to the blog’s theme. Possible blog topics include--but are not limited to--local politics, cooking, Tigersports, media reviews, new student or freshman perspective, faculty perspective, parent perspective, Newton news, and extracurricular involvement.
Before any blogger can start posting to theNewtonite.com, the blogger must sign a contract committing to writing columns every other week either until the end of semester or until the end of the school year. For examples of high school student blog posts, look on the Wayland Student Press Network. Students do not need to take journalism or any other prerequisite class to take advantage of this opportunity.
