January 2018 – Q/A


December 2017 – Q/A

Can the Arklight start an annual section titled “teacher shoutout” or staff shoutout where people anonymously submit reasons they’re thankful for a teacher or staff? Examples would be- “thankful for Woodmansee for making English bearable with awesome dance moves” or “thankful for randy for always staying positive and smiling at us or saying hi in the halls”

Thank you for your input, we will consider your proposal carefully. If we can put it in the Arklight it will most likely be in our next edition that comes out in February. However, we will need to check to see if it fits in the paper and clear it with administration first.
