Since 2012, The Daily Protector is a news blog for the students, staff, family and parishes of St. Joseph the Protector School in Glenside, Pennsylvania. Our name was the suggestion of Callum S. Our logo design is the work of Emma F., who graduated in 2015.
The purpose of our newspaper is to keep our community aware of the events in our school as we “imagine the future” of our Catholic education.
Students in grades 4-8 are welcome to participate. Some students are regular columnists, while other students contribute when they want to participate. We meet every other Wednesday at lunchtime (12:10-12:50).
Younger students can contribute by sending their ideas for stories to our email (see below). Students who give us ideas will be mentioned in the byline!
