This edition of our newsletter is special! It features the seniors who have been responsible for the creation and publication of the newsletter, plus the staff shout out posts. This group is so fun to have in class, and I'm going to miss starting every day with them. They've worked hard to find topics, interview people, find pictures, and put it all together for everyone to enjoy. I hope you've all enjoyed reading their stories!
