Extra! Extra! The KLO Express Is Here!

Extra! Extra! The KLO Express Is Here!
Kennedy-Longfellow students are publishing a monthly paper! Last spring, a few 4th graders started chatting about starting a newspaper. This year the now 5th graders turned their idea into reality! The students assigned themselves roles and agreed on a frequency and format. We have reporters, photographers, cartoonists, and even an advice columnist and a food critic. 

Each month, our reporters will cover events in the school (the K-104 Lemonade Stand, the Turkey Trot, etc.). In addition, there will be monthly installments from our English Language Arts (ELA) writer and our Science, Technology, Engineering, Math (STEM) writers.  Our ELA contributor introduces a new writing genre each month, and offers challenges to students in each grade. Our STEM writers suggest educational apps, science experiments, and math challenges. The coolest part about the K-Lo Express is that grown-ups involved are mere consultants. The student team makes all editorial, content, and design decisions. 

Keep an eye out for next month’s edition!
