ALBANY - The students in Sarah Nienhaus' journalism class have been working this semester to create a student newspaper.

After learning a little about the journalism process, students took action in writing about what matters to them and what they think the rest of the student body would be interested in reading.

The first edition of "The Comet" is now published and has been distributed around the school to students and staff members. Along with the printed version, there is a link to the newspaper on the Albany school district homepage under "Quick Links."

The class came together to make adjustments so that the following issues will run smoother. Students are busy interviewing staff members, checking in with students regarding club events and working on pieces for sports and coming holidays. Students have embraced this hands-on learning experience and are focused on creating something of which everyone can be proud.
