The students in Corey Decker’s El Verano fifth-grade class have been studying what goes into writing, editing and producing a newspaper and the role of newspapers in today’s society. They are embarking on a plan to publish their own paper of school news. On a recent Monday, they heard about the operations of The Sonoma Index-Tribune and then posed for a photo outside their classroom with Decker.
