62 Stories: A Tale of Two Clubs Coming Together

South School students give up their before school and recess time to be a part of the content creator and South Scoop News clubs. The students create their own creative content and report on the weather, events and other things happening at South school each week. All of the students get to watch and enjoy the content created by their classmates.
