Scholastic News Kids Press Corps, reporting from Hurricane Sandy’s aftermath
By Morgan on November 1st, 2012
In New York, it’s remarkable watching our employees, customers, and partners cobble together innovative ways of communicating and working while we try to begin recovering from Hurricane Sandy. It’s even more remarkable when watching our Scholastic News Kids Press Corps, a group of kid reporters ages 8-12, as they file their reports about the stories coming out of their own neighborhoods in affected areas. Remember — some of these stories are from kids who don’t have power at their homes (much like us, as Scholastic’s headquarters are still without power!).
You can read their stories here. Some of the most recent stories include:
- After Sandy, New York Picks Up the Pieces by Kid Reporter Cecilia Gault
- Hurricane Sandy Updates from NYC by Kid Reporter Cecilia Gault
- The View of Sandy from the Upper West Side by Kid Reporter Fred Hechinger
More stories from our Kids Press team will be coming soon. In the meantime, check them all out here. And thanks to the Kid Reporters — writing news for kids, by kids, about the issues that affect them.
