About

What is the Emerald?

The Emerald newspaper continues a proud tradition begun in 1922 as SHC’s source of news, sports, opinions, and campus life. The SHC Emerald Club, in association with the other media clubs such as Sports Media and the Shamrock, creates a monthly newspaper about the events at SHC, in the city, and in the nation. Reporters cover school events, athletic results, and local issues. Editorials comment on local and national debates. The paper provides a forum for focused, unbiased reporting as well as sound, logical arguments concerning the issues of the student body and the community.

The Emerald is student run. When we say “student-run,” we mean that the newspaper is staffed and run completely by SHC students with the guidance of club moderators Ms. Julie Phelan and Ms. Lucie Duffort. Students write articles, take pictures, conduct interviews, manage this website, and lay out the print editions using Adobe InDesign.

Meetings

Meetings take place in Room 508, usually after school on Wednesdays (2:30 pm). Members should listen to announcements and join the schoology page for exact dates and times.
