Get to know the outlet that brings you news from our school, our town, and our world.

Trying to get you the whole "Spectrum" of news!

Hello people of CHS and others! We (the Spectrum Committee)  welcome you to the Spectrum Newspaper. Originally  Spectrum was just a school paper, where every term there would be a new edition and would be handed out at school, but since this is the 21st century, technology is the new thing. In spectrum, we try to present a variety of information, both locally and from around the world. Here we try to inform everyone about as much as possible, and make sure everyone had a well rounded knowledge about the school, town, state, country and world! 

Who runs Spectrum?

Hi, I’m Valerie and I’m a junior. This is my first year doing Spectrum and I am excited to try something new!

Hey, I’m Bella Botelho and I like outdated music, writing gloomy poetry, weird horror films and painting all night. I write a little about activism and my other interests. Maybe amidst the chaos I’ll write something that inspires you, maybe I won’t, but hopefully I’ll make you think in the process.

Hey, my name is Grace Shea and I am currently a sophomore at CHS. I love singing, acting, and writing as well as getting involved in my community. I am also a part of clubs like Drama Club, as an actor and the PR/Marketing Crew, Femenist Club, and Canton Character Crew. I love writing about current issues and events, helping to spread awareness, along with writing about my interests at the time. This is my first year in Spectrum and I joined to explore my love of writing and try something new!!

Hi there! I’m Alex Maddestra, a CHS senior and Olympic hopeful (ironically, the one-man bobsled has not gotten much traction.) Although I have been deeply interested in journalism for most of my life, I have never fully committed myself to Spectrum. This year, though, I intend to turn over a new leaf. My other interests include movies, running, and painting from time to time, all things I will probably- unavoidably- shoehorn into my writing throughout the year.
