Hot Off The Presses Volume 1, Issue 1 Of The HMS Swather

Posted 2/6/2014

The first edition of the HMS Swather has hit circulation at Hesston Middle School

For the past three weeks, students have been taking part in a new exploratory group focused on journalism.

Staff sponsor for the journalism exploratory Gaye Pennington said the six-week course engages students.

“There are kids who are very excited about writing.  This give them real-world choices.  When kids have choices and are part of the decision-making process they are more responsible for their work.  This is a chance for kids to explore and have fun, but it still has a lot of academic value,” she said.

Pennington said the decision to run a print edition, rather than publish online was an easy one.
