Hey friends! When we hear about breaking news, it's likely that we automatically think it's something bad. Well, this time, the breaking news is actually really good...I think it's actually really cool, too. Starting in January, we are working to provide you a weekly news show with topics and important stories and interviews that are created just for students. We've found that the mainstream news is both boring, and can often be very sad. We think it's important for students to have their own version of the news. YOUR version will include news that is accurate, fair, and important for students to know and understand. We're also very excited to tell you that we've reached out to many celebrities and influencers who have overwhelmingly responded and agreed to do interviews just for you. Finally, I'll be introducing an influencer who will be a major part of each of the weekly news shows. As time goes on, and if you like the news show, we will create an entire channel for YOU. The channel will be create content based on the topics covered in the news show, but the best part is that YOU will have the power to tell us the type of content you would like us to feature on the channel. Finally, check out the article at the end of this page to meet the face of the channel, why we picked him, and to learn a few things about him. If you have any comments or suggestions about this awesome new news show, or other content you'd like to see, please make your voice heard by clicking on the "Suggestion Box" below, because we believe it is the voices of your generation that should be listened to first, and most!
THE WEEKLY SHOUT-OUT!
Each week we'd like to give a shout out to a different school, or class from around the United States and Canada. Our first shout out goes to Pettus Secondary School, in Texas. We chose this school as out first school because of a fundraiser they were caught doing. The school sold sticky notes for twenty-five cents. Students purchased the sticky notes and wrote a friendly, or kind message to a friend or a classmate and the notes were then placed on the recipient's locker, surprising them when they walked up to their locker. When Norm, our founder, noticed this fundraiser he was very excited about it. He contacted the teacher who was running it and asked if it was possible for some of the students in the school to write a message on a sticky note for every student and teacher in the school. The teacher agreed! This made Norm very excited. He provided her a message for students to write on the notes, and this amazing teacher made it happen! Norm was excited to be a part of such a unique and positive fundraiser by spreading a positive message to every person in the school, and by having the chance of donating $50 to the school fundraiser. Thank you to the students who were kind enough to create all of these notes and pass them out! After the holiday break, Norm will be throwing a pizza party lunch, among other surprises for all of you who helped him out! Stay tuned!
