Hey EL! Welcome back to another year! The Saga team and I are so excited to produce another year’s worth of content full of exciting, thought-provoking, and informative articles. I have been part of The Saga for the past two years, as a reporter and News Editor, and now, as one of your new chiefs and Opinion Editor, I want to promote an inclusive and engaging platform for readers like you! These past couple years, we have been trying to connect more with our readership, so I encourage you to reach out to The Saga staff for what you’d like to see in The Saga, conversations you’d like to make, submissions you’d like to write, and how you’d like to make an impact at ELHS. Also! Check out our super cool and amazing new website full of fun, creative content which we will be working on this year such as podcasts, videos, blogs, galleries, and more! Feel free to contact me, DM the instagram @elhssaga, or email any of us for questions, submissions, or more!

Peace out EL,
