PUBLICATIONS & MEDIA
Students will be invited to participate in extra-curricular opportunities to learn real-life skills in the media and social media realms. They will learn how to make appropriate, engaging and fun contributions to the Wolverine Nation as they learn the basics of responsible journalism, marketing and public relations/engagement.
They will learn design principles and utilize student art and creativity to develop the programs and products. Student work will meet the expectations of being factual, respectful, kind, and informative for an audience of students from Kindergarten to Graduation. No student names, images, or photos will be included unless the school has a parent/guardian signed release form. All photos and articles will be submitted and screened prior to placement on the website.
Students who participate in the extra-curricular newspaper group will be exposed to the theory and practicality of responsible reporting and the role of newspapers in history and current times. Students will learn about research, responsible journalism, effective use of the basic principles of communication and practice writing articles in the two primary styles: expository/informative, and persuasive. All photos and articles will be submitted and screened prior to placement on the website.
Students who participate in the extra-curricular yearbook group will work in coordination with the student body Historian to collect the images and main ideas from the year and produce a yearbook that highlights the unique things experienced by our students. All photos and articles will be submitted and screened prior to placement on the website.
If you do not want to have your student’s photo included in online websites or posted on the website/Facebook, please notify the school. There is a form for permission for student’s name or image to be shown in any official school-published items.
When students to work or activities of note, they may be videotaped, or recorded in some way and displayed on the district website. Virtual art galleries, talent shows, and other activities of the like that include student work or projects may be highlighted and activities done outside of school and captured on video may be presented. The intent is to showcase things students do.
VIDEO BLOGS, WEBCASTS, ETC.
Student groups may choose to contribute to the school YouTube channel or the website blogs or webcasts. This will provide opportunities for students to experiment with “reporting” weather news, interviews, or the weather. All videos will be submitted and screened prior to placement on the website.
We are proud to offer diverse activities, clubs and organizations that are available to students and families in the Wolverine Nation. Stand-alone “how to” videos, ongoing cooking series, virtual field trips, and more are currently available. If there are ideas for other courses, activities, etc. please contact the school to see if we have one, or to submit ideas for the future.
All students will be invited to participate in our virtual clubs and activities. There will be stand-alone activities and clubs that have weekly meetings, and everything in-between. We also welcome student suggestions for club and activities. Using the online survey on this page allows them to submit ideas. Staff will review the request and contact students with the response.
All activities, clubs and organizations will be listed in the Portal with descriptions and dates. Please Note: Clubs and organizations in Alsea Online may establish rules of conduct and consequences for misconduct that are stricter than those for students in general.
Clubs and Activities will be listed in August in order to be available for the 2020-2021 school year. Programs are in development and we will add things as interest arises. You do NOT have to be an online student to participate, but you must have parent permission and fill out enrollment forms for verification of your age and ability to participate.
