The newspaper staff at Swatara is chosen on the basis of responsibility, initiative, and creativity. Swatara's newspaper comes out monthly. Some features will include current events at school, clubs, sports, entertainment, comics, teacher and students interviews, student polls, and lettters to the editor.
In an effort to save money for the district, Panther Paw Print is only published online. Copies will not be printed for every student at SMS like previous years. Students are welcome to view the newspaper online or print a copy on their own time and at their own expense.
Meetings are the 1st and 3rd Thursday of each month.
