St. Peter Lutheran School’s student newspaper is The Oracle.  This student-led Oracle staffpublication in made up of writers and staff from the 6th-8th grade under the supervision of the advisor, Mrs. Amy Picchiotti.  Weekly meetings take place after school,  where student editors assist the staff members  with brainstorming article ideas and assignments,  composing articles, and  putting them  into templates.   Once each year, the Oracle staff takes a field trip in order to look at one aspect of news writing.  These trips have included a restaurant trip for a restaurant review and a visit to a local thrift store to do a community service/mission feature article.  Future trips will include a visit to a local high school’s newspaper class to learn more about news writing and reporting.
