Hello MYP and DP students!
I hope everyone had a fabulous summer and got some sleep, sunshine, and a well-deserved break from the chaos of IB that we’ve all come to know and love. As we kick off Imagine’s fifth year and the third year since our school newspaper was established, we are ready to jump back on our feet– with some new additions to our staff!
We’re looking for some fresh faces on our Rising Dragons News team. Whether you’re interested in journalism, want to be more involved within our school, or just want to try out something new, Rising Dragon News has a place for you. Any student in 6th through 12th grade can apply. (Hint for high-schoolers: joining the club is a great addition to your college application and counts towards CAS if you’re in the DP!)
When one thinks of a newspaper, their first thought might be lengthy, academic articles and in this case, that line of thought could not be more wrong. Our goal is to capture the character of our student body, provide a platform for our students to showcase their skills, and create content that is relevant to YOU. There’s a variety of positions to fill and a place for anybody who’s willing to dedicate time and effort to the club. We need writers (anything from school news to sports to creative closet-organization techniques), cinematographers, photographers, social personalities (who interview fellow students, take surveys, and star in news videos), creative personalities (you can make DIY videos or comics about IB life or cooking tutorials) and MORE! If you think you might have a talent or passion to bring to the team, we want to hear from you.
Applications can be found on Managebac under ‘Messages’. They’re due back to Mrs. Ferraro in room 281 by Friday, August 26th. If you have any questions, feel free to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Hope to see some fresh faces on the team!
Thanks for reading,
