Denebola’s Mission Statement:
Named after one of the brightest stars in the Leo constellation, Denebola is Newton South High School’s official online newspaper. Converting from a print publication in 2012, Denebola possesses a storied heritage of award-winning news reporting that caters to South students and Newton community members alike. With sections ranging from school news to sports to our proprietary “Procrastinate Here” section, we strive to provide reliable, informative, and relative news and entertainment to the Newton community and beyond.
Denebola has a single, unifying goal: To represent you, a fellow student at South. As an extracurricular club, Denebola aims to highlight students in school activities and to highlight our communities accomplishments as well as give students a voice.
