The 2017-2018 school year marks the start of yet another great year for The Pearl Post’s online publication.

Our online publication will undergo its own small makeover to catch up with the print publication’s redesign from last school year. A new logo for the website is currently in the works and should be published in almost no time.

The primary goal of the website this year is to continue to post new content for our readers. However, we are hoping to provide our school with information by posting articles at least twice a week and more videos, as we have introduced 3 additional new media editors.

On top of that, we plan on finding new ways for the website to be more interactive with students. We’ve been experimenting with more interactive photos and timelines, and hope to implement them alongside our other multimedia content. We are also planning on adding bi-monthly polls and quizzes for everyone to enjoy.

Our staff consists of new and experienced faces eagerly working together to create award-worthy content. Last year our website placed Second Place Best News Website at the Los Angeles Press Club and are working toward adding even more to our collection.  

This year’s staff is bound to be faced with some issues in the process of creating the content that our viewers desire. However, we will be able to overcome them as they arise and be one step closer to achieving the goals we have already set for both publications.
