Local elementary school is 'making headlines'
Bullard, TX (KETK) — One Bullard Elementary school student's idea to make a school newspaper is finally a reality. Mackenzie King and her two best friends, Aubrey Acker and Emma Seaton started the newspaper, B. E. S. News. After approval from the principal and their parents, the girls were able to begin their first print.
"When we found out we could do it we were so happy," said King. The girls run the paper entirely on their own, and Acker said "I think it's a really fun for our friendship to get closer."
They do everything from collecting story ideas to editing. Once a month they release a new edition and hand deliver a copy to every classroom in the school. "I just like being able to come up with the stories and titles and I kind of like to express my imagination. I think it's a joy to be able to express some of my character," said Acker.
The news crew recently added a new section to their paper. Blake Turner, a second grader, does a comic strip, and said "my friends kept saying it's the best comic strip ever and people in my class have been liking it too."
On their paper you can find photos, interviews, and inspirational quotes. They hope to continue to print monthly issues, and are hoping to do a feature on some of the teachers in their school.
Who knows, maybe one day one of them will be sitting at the KETK news desk.
