Online Student Newspaper: Check it out!

The MCHS students in the “Newspaper” class, under the direction of Mr. PJ Williams, has been hard at work on the online school newspaper: “The Creek Flow”. We are excited to share the link with our families below so that you can check out their writing pieces, or you can follow the site on twitter: @TheCreekFlowMC.   The site will be updated weekly with new articles and some great recurring sections (staff and student “spotlights”) that you will want to check out.  The students in this course would love to see high viewership, so thank you in advance for visiting their work!
