Upper School Journalism Class Prepares First Issue of Newspaper

Journalism students are busy writing the school year’s first issue of Canvass, the Upper School’s student newspaper. During a recent class, students worked on their articles and shared their ledes, the opening of a news story, with journalism teacher Karla Dejean. “The lede is going to anchor you throughout your story,” Dejean said. “I want you to feel great about your lede.” Junior and Canvass reporter Kevin Chen said the Seven Hills community should be “excited” for Canvass. Student journalists are writing several stories, including articles about new safety protocols at Seven Hills and Chen is writing the first installment of a humor column. “We are all working very hard,” Chen said. “We are all putting in our best efforts.”
