Hello Spartans, and welcome (back) to School! For students new to Memorial we are the Student Newspaper of JMM. Our job is to keep the Memorial community informed about the latest news and events. In addition, we acknowledge spectacular students involved in art, sports, music, clubs and much more!
The Sword and Shield team consists of two Co Editors-in-Chief, nine section editors, one operations manager, one incredible supervisor and countless contributors who keep the Memorial community informed and entertained.
This past summer has been a whirlwind of excitement, adventure and fun! The Solar Eclipse was an incredible sight to behold, while many summer blockbusters were released, along with new music from Taylor Swift, P!NK, Miley Cyrus and Ke$ha- and most importantly, Season 7 of Game of Thrones. While a large sum of us may be groaning at the prospect of returning to another school year, we can look forward to many upcoming JMM events. Fall Sports are already in action with many matches, meets, and games which are always in need of more support from fellow Spartan fans. In addition to sports, clubs are also beginning to meet and plan activities and events for the 2017-18 year. Let’s not throw away our shot for an amazing start to the new school year!
