The Arrow Post, the student-led newspaper, is a beloved tradition and leadership opportunity at Seven Arrows. Each year, a fifth- or sixth-grader who shows an interest in writing and the publishing process volunteers to spearhead the effort as editor-in-chief and oversees contributions from “staff” writers with the support of an equally committed assistant editor.
Students take time from their lunch breaks and add to their homework responsibilities to create this publication. They steer all content and generate their own deadlines and goals, publishing about six issues each school year. Content has included current events, school events, editorials, sports, advice columns, art, photography, recipes, and even comic strips. The students take pride in their very own by-students, for-students newspaper.
Students from all grades have an opportunity to contribute to each publication, and thanks to their drive and commitment, the Arrow Post is much anticipated in our school community and a wonderful opportunity for budding writers, artists, and reporters.
