New Beginnings – New Source For News


We begin the 2017 school year with a fresh look at news in the North Clackamas School District.  More than ever, student journalists need a strong foundation to understand current events and those that make the news.   We will begin our focus on learning the true meaning of fair and balanced.  We will learn to listen and to ask probing questions.   We will take the time to build relationships that lead to more information.  

Our Compass staff members will learn the importance of the written word as well as the use of video and audio to make sure stories are shared in all forms of media.  We will learn the history of the business and look forward to where we are going.

We will understand and follow student rights and responsibilities of being reporters.  We will not only focus on the news impact staff and students in North Clackamas but in our communities both local and nationally.

This is going to be a great year of learning and of understanding the power of the press.

Welcome to our new and returning readers of The Compass.
