Blue and Gold application for 2017 - 2018
The Blue and Gold, Malden High School’s newspaper, has a long and proud tradition, having been published for 100 years. In this elective course, students study writing, reporting, editing, layout & design, photography, video editing, and social media as they publish The Blue and Gold in print, online, and on mobile applications. Though students work cooperatively as a staff, they are also expected to complete individual assignments. Reporters, first and second year members of the course, are expected to complete all assignments given by editors and head writers in a timely and thorough manner. Editors and heads are in charge of the vision, content, and direction of the paper and website as well as managing staff and assignments. All students are expected to acquire advertisements over the course of the year and are expected to stay after school or to attend events to complete assignments when needed.

If you are applying to be a member of the staff, explain why you will be a valuable member.
Being a member of the staff of The Blue and Gold is highly sought after. I can enroll upwards of 50 students, but they must be able to work independently and be a productive member of a team. Unfortunately, I can not accept every student that wants to enroll. What will you bring to the staff? (This is the only thing that I have to assess your writing and motivation, so please spend some time on this!)
