Online Journalism @
The Online Journalism Elective publishes weekly content on "The Cougar's Den" blog using Edublogs.
In this elective, students find their voice as contributing writers and editors. Writing skills are expanded as students try out various writing styles such as: interviews, top ten, editorials, reviews, short stories, poetry, recipe posts, how-to's, and many more. We also aim to promote school spirit and build community by publishing posts about upcoming events, spirit days, and events on campus. By engaging with online content, students practice becoming digital citizens and being smart and safe online. Lastly, blogging students are building on their 21st century skills by participating in the blog elective. Check out our first ever blog by following the link below! We'd love to hear from you!
With Pride, Mrs. Castro

Meet Abbie ~
Abbie is an extremely energetic, enthusiastic, and ebullient girl. She was born in Sonoma County and has lived there her whole life. At school, it’s pretty easy to find her because she is always singing, dancing, or laughing her head off with her fantastic friends. She loves dancing, reading, eating, hanging out with friends and family, avocados, animals, burritos, writing, and laughing. She loves dogs, her family, and school, and dislikes (hates) animal cruelty. One of her biggest passions is music. Particularly singing. She says “I absolutely don’t know what I would do without music. Without lyrics, I am lost, and without melody I am melancholy.” She always tries to be positive and work hard and she especially loves to laugh.
