Welcome to the Knightly Scroll
You might be wondering: what is the Knightly Scroll? You’ve probably seen our logo on a poster or a T-shirt, but you don’t know what our club is. For starters, the Knightly Scroll has been East Noble’s digital school newspaper since 2013. We strive to be an innovative news source, an interesting entertainer, and, yes, even a juicy tabloid. We cover everything from local news to football games to movie reviews and more.
The best thing about a student newspaper like ours is that it can be anything you want it to be! It’s by the students and for the students. Don’t be afraid to tell us what you want to see in the paper, and don’t even be afraid to write it yourself. We’re always open to contributions. If you’d like to join the newspaper, just see Mrs. Schlotfeldt in room 101, or you can talk to Michael Lehman or Remy Fisher if you see us in the halls.
We know what you’re probably thinking. “This sounds unbelievably boring. Writing articles and meeting once a week after school to talk about them? No thanks.” We get where you’re coming from. Many of us thought that at first, too. We as students already write enough essays as it is. Luckily, Knightly Scroll members don’t write essays.
We write articles.
Staff members are expected to write two articles a month and are given the liberty to choose the stories that they wish to cover. We write about our passions and about schoolwide, local, and national events that catch our attention. And yes, we even have opinion columns! Editors are always ready and willing to help anyone with their articles, so don’t hesitate to join our ranks just because you’re “not a good writer.”
(By the way, we also work around your involvement in other sports/extracurriculars!)
Aside from writing, we also participate in events like the Homecoming Parade, concessions, and more, depending on the school year. Reporters even can get sports passes to go to games. Some of us have even found ourselves in the dugout at a basketball game or snapping pictures on the sidelines of the football field.
Working alongside Mr. Amstutz’s video production class and 99.5 The Hawk, the Knightly Scroll is truly a partner in the community.
We can’t do this on our own, though. Not even close. We need your continuous help and support—even if you don’t join. You can follow us on Twitter (@KnightlyScroll), where we post the links to stories and even tweet out the daily lunch menu. You can also follow us on Instagram (en.knightlyscroll) and Facebook (The Knightly Scroll). Aside from social media, you are also always welcome to let any staff member know about a story you want us to cover—or, as we said earlier, you can even write it yourself. Remember: the Knightly Scroll is what you make it. It is NEVER too late to join!
Keeping you in the knightly know,
-Michael Lehman and Remy Fisher, 2016-2017 Editors-in-Chief
