Our Story

Abington High School’s student newspaper club, The Green Wave Gazette, has been publishing for about 17 years under four different advisors and/or co-advisors. In 2017, Ms. Patricia Pflaumer, an ELA teacher at AHS, returned as the advisor.

The Green Wave Gazette has undergone several changes since it began in 2002. Originally it was hosted solely online through the school journalism support of ASNE (American Society of Newspaper Editors). Around 2007, it was also printed at the high school every month by students on the club. In 2013 with Mr. Jim Dorman at the helm, its online paper moved from ASNE to SNO (School Newspapers Online), with professional printing (in color) done off campus a few times each year with advertisers to support the cost. In 2018-19, with Ms. Pflaumer as advisor, the GWG went completely online (SNO, Twitter, Instagram, YouTube and Facebook).

An exciting change came in 2019 when Matt Lyons and Aaron Johnson proposed creating a segment in the ACAM studios called The Weekly Wave. This year Cam Curney introduced another segment called Coffee with Cam. The use of the ACAM studio has brought a whole new dimension to the school newspaper.

Readership has grow considerably over the years. From January to January in 2018-19, the Green Wave Gazette had an online audience of over 13,000, with 47,986 individual pages viewed. In the 2018-19 school year, the paper also received five SNO Badges and four writers received Best of SNO Awards: GWG members Lily Bonner ‘21, James Mulkern ‘21, Emily Coulsey ‘21, as well as a contributor Amanda Murphy ‘22. This year 2019-2020 is off to a good start, receiving one Best of SNO Award within the first month of operation.
