October 7, 2009: Paper could go up in smoke — Hart High students seek creative ways to fund the Smoke Signal

Hart High School

The Canyon Call is not the only student newspaper in Santa Clarita that’s in trouble.

According to a story by staff writer Tammy Marashlian in the Oct. 5 edition of The Signal, Hart High School’s student government is no longer able to fund the student newspaper the Smoke Signal due to ongoing budget cuts.

That has left nearly 30 journalism students with the task of covering $9,000 in printing costs for seven issues of the newspaper throughout the school year. Students must now hold fundraisers like a bowling night to make sure the paper gets into the hands of the student body.
