I think that our writing has gotten much stronger throughout the year. We started off having very weak writing but we have picked it up. Now the writing goes with the design of the newspaper. The staff has gotten better about not being as clicky. I think that the Texas trip has helped a lot with the girls being more comfortable with each other. Pictures have improved a lot. I think we have gotten out of the mode of taking the same old pictures over and over. Graphics have become great too. They are more intricate and more appealing to the eye. Its not the boring box and some pictures. Our cut outs are cleaner and more sharp. Theres not weird little pieces of wall sticking out of the head or the foot. Our pages are a lot cleaner and more advanced. I think that the students and teachers like that the new design. It seems that the staff is improving more and more. I think that that finally the staff is getting to where we need to be. We have improved so much and I know that we will improve more during the rest of the year. I have a great staff to work with.
