RMS Featured Club
"The Paw Print"

The Paw Print is a student-led school newspaper club open to students 6th through 8th grade.   This school year we have multiple members from each grade.  Students meet on Thursdays after school to collaborate and brainstorm, write, create polls, comics, and art to be included in the newspaper, as well as scheduling interviews.  

Students are hard at work creating the first issue of the "Paw Print" to distribute to the student body, that will be released this month. The students are excited and proud to be producing an entirely student-created newspaper!  Keep your eyes open for our first edition of the RMS Paw Print.
