PARKVIEW PANTHERS STUDIO: "Thank You, Washington Post Writers Group!"

Washington Post Writers Group LogoOn behalf of the Communications Technology students and myself at Parkview Secondary School, I'd like to publicly acknowledge the generous donation made to Parkview Panthers Studio by the kind folks at the comic strip syndicate, The Washington Post Writers Group.

Earlier this week, we were delighted to receive copies of several different media press kits used by the syndicate's sales reps to promote their comic strip features to newspaper editors. Included in each kit were daily and coloured Sunday strip samples from popular WPWG features including: Bo Nanas by John Kovaleski, Candorville by Darrin Bell, Opus by Berkeley Breathed, Out of the Gene Pool by Matt Janz, Pickles by Brian Crane, Red and Rover by Brian Basset, and the all new Watch Your Head by Cory Thomas.

These press kits are a wonderful because they not only show students different packaging and design layouts, but they can also be used as literacy resources. All of them will help inspire my students and enhance their education. Thank you, WPWG!

Stay TOONed!
