At the end of last year, we packed up our computers and AP style books and moved to a beautifully renovated Room 314. Moving to a new location was the kickoff to a whole new set of changes to the way we tell our stories.
Traditionally, our newspapers were an insert in The Morning Sun and we printed at the end of each month. But this year, the Morning Sun’s printing press moved from Neosho to Columbia, Missouri, and we had to part ways.
The Booster Redux will now be printing with Osage Graphics in Burlingame, Kan.
In addition to a fresh, new style for our newspaper, we’ve decided to cut down the number of our print issues from 10 to five. Fewer print issues will allow us time to craft higher quality issues and allow our staff to focus on our website, boosterredux.com, where we’ll be posting event recaps, breaking news, sports, features and videos.
Our strongest features and storytelling pieces, however, will be in our print issues — print will be an extension of our website.
In the meantime, make sure to follow us on all of our social media, for photos, videos and announcements. We’re on Instagram and Twitter as @PHSBoosterRedux and on Snapchat as @PittPublication. Also, make sure to like our Facebook page, Pittsburg High School Student Publications.
This year in particular, our staff was interested in more ways of telling the stories of the people of PHS using social media.
So after multiple discussions in class, we decided to start a new Instagram page — @HumansOfPittHigh. Every Monday, Wednesday and Friday, we’ll feature a student or teacher on the page, modelling Humans of New York, which was originally started by Brandon Stanton.
