MMS Journalism Club
The MMS Journalism Club begins this Tuesday, September 4! Journalism Club is open to 4th - 8th grade students. We meet Tuesday afternoons from 3:45 - 5:00 p.m. (except teacher work afternoons). There is no cost other than for the after school program, but space is limited! 
Through writing school news stories, working on the yearbook, and assisting with assembly of the school literary magazine, students will get hands-on experience with
  • Choosing a story
  • Photography and photo editing
  • Interviewing
  • Journalistic writing
  • Layout and design
  • Editing and submitting stories and photos online
If this sounds like something your child would like to do, please submit your After School Studio application
