Being on The Bell Newspaper Staff is the best of both worlds: it’s a class but it feels like a club! Staff members work together to publish a newspaper once a month, distributing to about 1,800 students and staff. Staff members begin as reporters, but over time, progress to leadership positions, which includes designing pages and leading the team in positions like Editor in Chief, Design Editor, and News, Features and Opinion Editors. While the staff works hard to produce professional-level journalism, they also have fun. A huge noisy cowbell, First Friday food parties, Halloween trick-or-treating, Secret Santa and many other silly things bring this crew together in a close bond.
