The Raider Flash, the Scholastic Blog/News Site Online publication, is produced during the 4th quarter by seventh and eighth grade journalism students. Features include school activities from the latter part of the school year, as well as entertainment pieces and current events, some of which are accompanied by video. The students conduct all interviews and write their stories independently. In its first year of National Scholastic Press Association critiquing, Raider Flash was awarded Second Class with the judge commenting, “I am impressed with the amount of coverage from a middle school website.”
