WSPN’s Jonathan Zhang and Brasen Chi spoke with the leaders of Wayland High School’s Photography Club and considered their plans for the rest of the school year.

“During the first half of each meeting, leaders will go over photography lessons covering a variety of topics from angles to lighting,” Zhang and Chi said. “In the latter half of each meeting, members will put their new skills into action and take pictures around the WHS campus.”


Staff reporter Aditya Weling took a look at various early-season overreactions in the NFL and shared his opinion on the status of teams currently.

“Like Wall Street, teams’ stocks are rising, falling, or in some rare cases, exactly where they started,” Weling said. “As such, like every year, some teams are vastly outperforming expectations, while others are simply not reaching the bar that was set for them this summer.”


Staff reporters Bella Schreiber and Sasha Libenzon caught girls varsity soccer’s win against Waltham on camera, and WSPN’s Tess Alongi shot a gallery at the golf team’s match against Acton-Boxborough.


WSPN’s Sophia Oppenheim gathered her top five favorite fall activities and shared them.

“Whether they are haunted or not, hayrides are a very popular fall activity,” Oppenheim said. “One [hayride site that] is popular for many WHS students is at the Nashoba Valley Ski area called Witches Woods.”


Editor Genevieve Morrison expressed her thoughts on the future of the Republican Party.

“By casting out the moderate demographic, Republicans cut off their ties to reality,” Morrison said. “If this trend continues into the coming years, the party will hold the same amount of power, with more dangerous beliefs. Conservatism is no longer just politics. It’s a threat to our country.”
