A group of sixth grade students at Polk County Middle School have been getting a taste of life as a journalist or publisher.

English Language Arts teacher Donna Hall worked with the group to create “Message from the Middle,” a newsletter devoted to happenings around school.

The first edition includes news updates as well as interviews with coaches and students around campus.

Students involved include Wayne Carson, Mason Grigg, Avery Hardin, Conner O’Shields, Layla Paulsen, John Quay-Wright and StorieLane Whiteside.
