Sofia Barassi and Stefan Karlberg

As our school year comes to an end, we want to reflect on the year that we had, not only as a school, but as a newspaper. We transitioned from 18 months at home to a completely in-person school life with athletics, events, and classes where we were all quickly trying to discover ourselves again. The transition from opening up our laptops to meet virtually, to meeting most members in-person for the first time, was something that no one has had to do before.

As co-editors-in-chief, the daunting task of renewing the paper was one that we were up for and couldn’t have completed without our fantastic team. Thank you to all of our members who stuck with us through this uncertain year; we could not have done it without you.

We are very excited to pass the torch to our next co-editors-in-chief with all of the excitement of producing news for our school. Thank you to all of our readers throughout this school year for reminding us why we do what we do. As we leave these positions to our teammates, classmates, and friends, we are so happy to have had this opportunity and the people surrounding us. Thank you.

From, Sofia Barassi and Stefan Karlberg
