Archived Stories for Union County Public Schools
News Crew members earn their credentials
Visitors to Hemby Bridge Elementary’s website can expect to hear from some new voices when they read our feature stories in the future. All fourth and fifth graders were invited to join the Hemby Bridge Elementary News Crew. Interested students attended a two-day Journalism Workshop with AIG Teacher Mrs. Ziskind. News Crew members learned how feature stories are chosen for the website, the criteria for submitting articles and what elements make up an interesting story, then practiced writing their own news articles. Upon completion of the Workshop, the students were presented with official Press Badges and became members of our school’s press corps.
Our reporters will be keeping their eyes and ears open and sniffing out stories regarding all of the wonderful things that happen at our school. Congratulations to our News Crew and we look forward to reading your stories!
