Welcome to the Griffiths Middle School Newspaper Archive! This page has been a long time coming. Ever since I took over Journalism way back in 2004 (I think it was 🤷 ), I have wanted to archive and post the school papers somewhere. Up until that time they had been tucked away in file cabinets and old boxes, in danger of a trip to the landfill, but I thought that it would be a shame for all of that history to be lost. Over the years I began scanning papers, off and on, but the technology wasn’t yet at a place to make the process easy and smooth, and internet storage was expensive and cumbersome. So while I had quite a few papers scanned, it still seemed that it would take hundreds more hours to process them all. Fast forward to today we, at long last, have the technology to get it done!❗ It will still take a while, make no mistake, but not nearly as long as it would have otherwise. What you see here is only the beginning. I will update this message when the job is finally complete!
