The Seminole Times is now accepting staff applications for the 2024-2025 school year! Rising sophomores, juniors, and seniors with a passion for storytelling, leadership, and community-building are encouraged to apply.

Newspaper is a great way to see SHS in a whole new way, meet important people, express and publish your creativity, and even spice up your college applications, but you must be willing to work for it! Newspaper is more of a job than a class. You will receive on-the-job training to generate a product. Producing the newspaper requires a number of jobs to be done; most importantly, it requires a desire to work hard to produce material that the staff and school can be proud of.
