PWHS News Update

The Write Side - September 2, 2016

PWHS Digital Media Class wants to provide more current news to YOU!

You are viewing Portsmouth West High School's newest way to communicate information to its students, parents, staff, and community! Created by the high school Digital Media class, this digital format will be more readily available to our readers and viewers. Previously, the PWHS newspaper, The Write Side, was only published four times a school year; however, this digital format allows more timely distribution of our school news and pertinent information.


To begin, we hope to provide The Write Side newsletter digitally every two to three weeks, but more often if possible. Click below to access current and past editions of The Write Side publications for the most up-to-date school news.
