The Gazette Staff Says Goodbye to a Most Unusual Year

Just some of the Gazette staff that showed up for the last day of school for seniors.

Wendy Rodriguez, Editor-in-Chief

Never in a million years did we think as students that a global pandemic would cause the 2020-21 academic school year to be fully online.

Juggling all our classes and participating in extracurricular activities on top of added home responsibilities was overwhelming, but it was even more challenging to run a student-run newspaper.

As the editor-in-chief this year, it was difficult to communicate with the other journalists regarding their articles because we weren’t meeting physically in school.

Brainstorming, writing, and editing articles was hard but we made it work and published six issues this year.

Thank you to everyone who took the time out of their busy days to read our work. Thank you to the students, teachers, and administration at Godinez who supported us and at times contributed with interviews and photos.

Although this year was chaotic in many ways, we are ready to conquer next year no matter what it brings.

And, to the Class of 2021, congratulations! You did it! Thank you graduating journalists for all of your hard work this year.

You will be missed.

With most of the staff vaccinated, we held our breathe for five seconds to get the photo. (Joyce Feuerborn)
