The Link combines ConVal’s a school newspaper and literary magazine. Students can receive ELO credit, meet every Tuesday during TASC, and Fridays after school. To achieve the group’s goals we have partnered with the local paper, The Ledger Transcript. This partnership allows us to publish issues in the paper itself. This year, The Link will also be for sale at the Toadstool bookstore. Students run meetings, write stories, collect images of artwork, design layout and edit. In May 2016, The Link was awarded “Highest Honors” for overall publication of a school magazine at the 68th New England Scholastic Press Association (NESPA) Conference.
