Dropping by the Reporter’s office, Jenny Case, 17, a writer and photographer for the Shelter Island School student paper, The Inlet, checked out the latest edition, published today.

The second edition of Shelter Island School’s The Inlet is being distributed to students today.

It’s the second successive year that the school has published its own newspaper under the direction of faculty adviser Devon Treharne and staffed by  students.

Some staffers are in the school’s journalism class while others chose involvement with the newspaper as an extra-curricular activity.

For senior Jenny Case, 17, a writer and photographer for the paper, it’s an extra-curricular activity, she said.

“I’ve always liked writing and organization,”she said about joining the Inlet staff.

Her photographs are displayed throughout the issue and she is the author of two stories in this edition — one on the new senior thesis program initiated by Superintendent Michael Hynes to increase students’ written and verbal skills and a second story about The Inlet she describes as “the little paper that could.”

Ms. Case is bound for Suffolk County Community College in the fall where she will study for two years before transferring to a four-year college to set her on the road of pursuing a career as a forensic scientist.

Copies of The Inlet are available to residents at the Shelter Island Public Library.
