Help Keep The Tattler in Print

After 86 years in print, The Tattler, one of the oldest high school newspapers in the country, needs support to meet the rising cost of printing.

In many ways, The Tattler, the longest-running school newspaper in Montgomery County Maryland has never been faster or stronger. Unfortunately, it is also running on financial fumes.

Like so many professional and amateur newspapers, we are struggling to pay for what we love to do. Of course, we could say goodbye to color. We could go completely online. We could print far fewer editions a year, like so many other high schools have chosen to do. But we haven’t. Our school, Bethesda-Chevy Chase High School, expects more, and we want to deliver.

So we are sad to announce that we have to stop the presses for a while. We must invest our time and resources into fundraising so that we can keep this paper alive.

This is where we hope you come in.

Please support us with a donation so we can get back in print.

The Tattler has become more than just a school newspaper for our 2012-2013 staff. It has become something of which we are all extremely proud. Not long ago, The Tattler came out five times a year. We are currently on track to produce a new issue approximately every two weeks. Though we've had a lot of growing pains these past few years, it has all been worth it to get to the point we’re at now. But we can’t stop here.

The Tattler staff has an insatiable desire to take this paper to the next level. All of us want more. We want more not just for us, but for B-CC, because a better Tattler means a better school.

We wish for all of our readers to continue enjoying the product we have become so proud to call our own.

We deeply appreciate any and every contribution.
