The Bagpiper staff published the third issue of the FC student newspaper on Friday, Sept. 24 during second period and spent much of the day promoting content for the Bagpiper web publication.
Readers responded, as Bagpiper Online had 317 hits on Friday, Sept. 24 (the goal was 200), and 108 more hits on Saturday, Sept. 25. Perhaps most impressive is that readers are now commenting on content, especially opinion columns.
Great job to FC journalists, who take the time to publish quality work in print and online. And this again demonstrates the need for schools to support web publications and on-line journalism. We’re fortunate to work at a school and in a corporation that supports our journalism students so much.
