In the past, the club met one hour after school each week. The students are taught the basics of journalism, including how to conduct an interview, how to write objective articles, editorials, feature stories, and reviews. Most articles are written during club meeting time. The editors decide which articles to include, place them in the template for the newsletter, and arrange for printing.
