The Sevastopol Elementary School newspaper made a successful return last school year and will be focusing on issues beyond the classrooms. The Pioneer Press returned after an absence of several years and was enthusiastically embraced by staff, students and parents. The paper plans to put out four issues this year instead of three. Students will be covering the renovations and building replacements approved by voters. Newspaper advisor Brooke Tanck says this years focus will also be on bringing current community issues into focus for younger readers.
The bulk of this year's Pioneer Press writers will come from the fifth grade, although students from all grades will have input on story ideas.
