The Declaration


The Declaration Newspaper is honored to be named a 2015 and 2016 Site of Distinction by SNO (School Newspaper Online). In 2015, Colonia High’s Declaration was one of 14 schools out of 1729 schools using SNO to receive this honor and was the ONLY high school in New Jersey to be deemed a Distinguished Site by SNO. Colonia High School’s Declaration staff is an assemblage of enthusiastic and curious students dedicated to finding the facts, arguing a position, or simply investigating something fun. Some writers are enrolled in Mrs. Allen’s Journalism 1 and 2 classes while others pursue journalistic endeavors as an extracurricular activity. Every area of interest—politics, sports, movies, pop culture, fashion—is covered by the staff, as are school issues, social discussions, and daily polls. The Declaration recently upgraded to an online newspaper, where new stories are published continually, easily accessible to the typical on-the-go high school student. Whether one just wishes to catch up on current events, explore CHS’s current activities and events, or read an entertaining feature or editorial, The Declaration is the place to look, or click. Also, for up-to-date information, please follow us on Twitter : @ColoniaHigh.
