Magnet's Newspaper Staff takes on new platforms
Every year the Utopia staff takes on the challenge of besting the year before's productions. This year, the staff has set several new and exciting goals. Editors Reece Maguire, Makayla Hawkins, Korey January, and Jordan Fong are working hard to lead the staff into previously-uncharted areas. First, the staff has outlined a plan to produce a new Toilet Paper to be hung on the first school day of each month. The staff has also set a goal to produce four issues of the Utopia- one during each quarter of the year. Finally, the Utopia is committed to expanding the online presence at magnetutopia.weebly.com. Check here often for new content. Stories, polls, and videos will be available on this newly-invigorated site.
