The Jefferson Times returns after a one year hiatus. The return of the school newspaper was welcomed by staff and students alike. Journalism teacher Theo Sakellarides made a bold choice by not only bringing back the newspaper, but launching it as a website. Sakellarides said, “The cost of running the newspaper site was pretty reasonable and I wanted to have a site that was similar to major news sites on the internet. Students need to see that their articles matter and printing them out on paper doesn’t drive that message enough.”
Avoiding printing costs is a major victory. Sakellarides said that printing costs were a major factor in deciding whether or not a newspaper could exist. Luckily, students have not insisted on having printed copies of the newspaper. Printing costs have been a factor in the abandonment of newspapers all over the counrty because paper costs continue to rise. Jefferson now joins the long list of other powerful high schools that publish their newspapers online.
The announcement of the newspaper’s after school meetings spread quickly through the school. Many students came to the very first meeting thrilled to be a part of something that the whole school and possibly the district could be talking about.
