Student journalists publish Newsflash at Highland Elementary

Big picture
At Highland Elementary School, a student-run newspaper can be added to the list of good things that came out of the COVID-19 pandemic. With a desire to be remembered (and lots of free time), four students dreamt up what is now called Newsflash, a bi-weekly source of information for students, staff and parents at the school.

Rifle High School Sophomore Emma Self carefully plucked the small brown tipped leaf from the basket of flowers.

“I love being in the greenhouse. I would have our class out here all day, every day,” she said, returning to her work of preparing the vibrant flowers and vegetables for this weekend’s plant sale.

Self, and her classmates spend the bulk of their plant systems class in a greenhouse on the upper campus of Rifle High School - a greenhouse that stood vacant for many years until a Garfield County Federal Mineral Lease District grant infused new life into the translucent building.
