Bio: The Scratching Post is published by the Journalism Class in conjunction with The Scratching Post (the Newspaper Club), and it is sanctioned by the ASB of Eastmont High School. It is an open forum for student expression and provides the student body with the opportunity to voice their fierce independent opinion through the medium of journalism. The Newspaper Club was started more than ten years ago and was renamed The Scratching Post shortly thereafter. Since that time, the publication was taken from an in-house print to a 16-page tabloid publication printed in full color and disseminated to the student body nine times a year. And now, The Scratching Post has moved into the digital age.
