On Wednesday, 26 February, some of our Wildcat Newspaper editors attended Press Day at Adelphi University. In addition to breakout sessions featuring newspaper and magazine editors and reporters, the conference features the Quill Awards, which serve to recognized high school newspapers in a variety of categories.
Sarah Hassan (Class of 2021) earned third place recognition for her editorial, “Wheatley’s Dedicated Approach to School Cybersecurity.”
Congratulations to Sarah on this recognition!

It was a great day and the students were able to talk to other student journalists. They came away with a renewed enthusiasm and understanding of their role in the reporting of school issues and loads of new ideas.
Congratulations to the student editors-in-chief, Kavina Amin and Natalia Potropeluk! Thanks and congratulations to the faculty advisors, Mrs. Jo Beth Roberts and Mr. Andrew Ardito.
