Welcome to the revamped site of The Wolverine, your source for news in the Walker Upper School. For everything from Friday night lights to ways to ask someone to homecoming, The Wolverine staff will have insightful news and tips to help get you through high school. As you have noticed, The Wolverine is now online, and the staff is thrilled to start bringing you news in new ways, from sports pump up videos to articles exploring well known Walker traditions. The staff and I hope you are as excited about the revamped Wolverine as we are.
For the first time in the history of The Wolverine, our publication will be shared solely online. We have decided to take The Wolverine online in order to explore news and media networks and make our articles and updates more readily available to you. The staff is planning to try out media new to us, like video footage, polls to solicit your opinions, and even Twitter and Instagram feeds. By taking the paper online, it will always be available to readers and can be updated frequently. Plus, by taking the paper online, Walker is being more eco-friendly. In years past, the staff has had to print the the minimum number of newspapers that publishing companies require, 500 copies, even though there are not even 400 people in the Upper School.
Check The Wolverine’s website frequently for exciting news coverage of events going on around Walker in new ways. The staff and I will have you covered!
