The Month of March Text written Within Hanging Shamrocks of various colors and sizes – suggests Saint Patrick’s Day

Hey everyone! It’s Monika Jeraj and Alexandra Saffman, your Arts and Entertainment Editors for this year. We’re back and so ready for spring – it seems Punxsutawney Phil was right this year, despite his 60% miss rate. Get outside and breathe in some fresh spring air! We’re now well into the second semester, and we hope everyone is keeping up with everything they have to do. Juniors, get ready for the ACT!!! And trust us, don’t worry about it too much.

As with every other month, Sword and Shield has got you covered. As the last winter sports wrap up and the first spring sports begin, we continue to keep track (no pun intended) of all the big sports news – articles about soccer and track are on their way in the coming months! Of course, we’re covering other important sports stuff this month so make sure to check out our article on the Super Bowl. And speaking of big news at the Super Bowl, don’t miss the article on Taylor Swift’s influence! Check out our other Arts & Entertainment articles including Oscar predictions, a short St. Patrick’s Day history, and information about a local teen art show. Our News team has prepared an array of fun and informative articles on things like a 104-year-old skydiver (wow!!!) and new AI smart glasses. And of course, our Student Life section has kept us up to date with information about the school, including a review of the Addams Family musical.

If you’re at all interested in writing articles for Sword and Shield, join our Google Classroom (code: awjii5f) to get meeting announcements and instructions. We meet every Monday at lunch and flex (and we get occasional treats!!). We’d love to have you!
