A note from the editor. April 8, 2020.
Greetings fellow Mustangs! Happy spring! The last few weeks have been a whirlwind of difference, newness, and unexpectedness. As Mainland closed to students on March 16, 2020, all of Mustang Nation has had to adjust to a new normal. The Hoofprints writers in the Journalism class and Newspaper Club have been hard at work churning out stories. Unfortunately, their editor has been hard at work becoming an online teacher and converting curriculum to digital.
This update will be large in scale as our writers have all done reviews of their favorite things; this is a great list of restaurants, experiences, books, movies, musicals, and more. Check out our new section Hoofprints Reviews and start making your post-social isolation "To-Do List".
Another new section you may find interesting is our Editorials section. All of the students picked a topic and wrote their best editorial/opinion piece. There is something there for every taste!
Lastly, please check out the newly updated "Around the Corral" section where students, prior to being sent home, were getting more involved in reporting what was happening around campus. This section features an article on Mainland's very own, Amirah Giorgianni, runner up in New Jersey's recent wrestling competition. We at Hoofprints could not be more proud of Amirah and all the other young women that competed in the tournament.
I hope that this update finds you and your families well. We have some exciting things on the horizon as students are just finishing up articles written about either celebrities or politics (writers' choice). Follow our Instagram page (@mrhs_hoofprints) and check back often for updates.
Stay safe, stay healthy, and wash those hands!
