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.

Applications can be emailed to This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it or dropped off in the Newtonite room, 273, at any point during the school year. Within a week after you submit your application, the Newtonite editors will contact you to let you know if  your blog is accepted.

Blog applications must include the following:

  • Your full name, grade, email address and phone number
  • Days and blocks (including after school) you are available for a bimonthly meeting with a Newtonite editor
  • A creative name for your blog
  • A 150-word statement about the focus of your blog, what it aims to accomplish and how this fits into the Newtonite’s goals as apublication
  • Drafts of the first two blog posts you would like to include on theNewtonite.com. These must be between 300 and 900-words long 
  • Ideas for four future blog posts
  • Whether you would like to write bimonthly blog posts until the end of semester or until the end of the school year
