My Students

THS is a small, rural school with approximately sixty students ninth through twelfth grade. Our school's motto includes instilling leadership, scholarship, and citizenship for all of our students. We strive to offer our students the best opportunities to succeed, including classes in publications and journalism. By offering courses in publications, our students are encourage to pursue opportunities in public speaking and video production as well as yearbook.

Our students strive to be the best version of themselves through our publications class, by communicating with the community through social media and yearbook and by applying their leadership skills to help support their peers in their own endeavors.

Our publications class requires students to challenge themselves everyday by requiring them to use their creativity to come up with new and exciting ideas and to use their analytical side to apply their ideas and publish them on a social platform.

My Project

Our publications class is responsible for many things including our school news broadcast: Roar TV and our yearbook. Recently, our video camera has been causing issues and we are hoping to earn another one so we can continue to share our vision with the community.

Our publications class wants to continue to connect with our community and share important life moments with our students.

We strive to create quality work that is shared on our social media as well as makes our community proud. We also need SD card readers to be more effective at creating our yearbooks and sharing lifelong memories through our dedication and hard work.
