ON THE RECORD!

 Welcome

By: Joe Nickerson, Senior Editor

School newspapers are a fixture of any school. I mean, in every high school movie drama, there’s some school newspaper laying around, making it seem— just like acne cream— a high school necessity.

So, walking the halls of Medfield High School, you probably have found yourself wondering why we don’t have our own newspaper. Well, we did have one, called the Kingsbury Chronicle, but it’s been inactive for the past few years. This year, under the guidance of English Department Chair Ms. Sancher and English teacher teacher Ms. Chamberlain, we’ve decided to let the phoenix rise out of the ashes and restart the newspaper.

Welcome to “On the Record.”
