5th Graders Learn from Local Journalist

William Whalen, a Highlands parent and writer for the Valley News Dispatch / Trib Total Media, taught writing and spoke about obtaining a career in journalism to Mr. Dicer and Mr. Mason's 5th graders at Grandview Upper Elementary. The students asked questions and wrote a small paragraph, with Mr. Whalen giving some writing advice. After that, the students looked at some articles from the Valley, and learned the different sections and terminology of a newspaper. 
Special thanks to Mr. Sean Dicer
