Mr. Crowley’s journalism class has spent the last few months working on the project.  Led by Crowley and Co-Editors-in-Chief Ariana Hernandez and Dylan Almodiel, the class has been sorting out ways to bring a school newspaper to the entire school and community.  In the old days, if you didn’t get one of the limited numbers of copies of the Fore N Aft, you were simply out of luck.  Now it’s available on your phones, tablets, laptops, and desktop computers.

Other advantageous features include:

  • A scrolling sports ticker with the latest sports scores
  • The new Fore N Aft can include sports video, movie trailers, music videos, viral videos and so much more.
  • Social media links
  • Full-color photography
  • Online opinion polls
  • Readers can instantly comment on stories
