Mission Statement

Since 1971, “The Paw Print” has been the voice of Wilde Lake High School. Every staff is faced with a unique set of topics, students, and the changing world. The 2022-23 team is committed to producing ethical journalism for the students of Wilde Lake.

“Do No Harm”
Every story we publish is well-intentioned, and editors agree that it will not unfairly damage anyone’s reputation.

Respect
We respect our sources and subjects, which allows for a fair and safe environment for interviewing.

Bias
The staff acknowledges that everyone holds their own opinions and agrees not to report in such a way that a story is misrepresented or misleading.
In news articles, staff will not include or imply their opinion.
Opinion pieces will be published in the “Opinion” section of the newspaper.

Diversity
We strive to include a wide variety of voices to ensure our interviewees and issues reflect the diversity and interests of our community. We believe in equal representation.

Student-Led
“The Paw Print” is a staff of student writers, reporters, and photographers led by student editors and overseen by an advisor.
We believe that a student-led newspaper is essential in representing the student body.
