December Update

Updated: Jan 30, 2019


Happy December!


We did it! We reached the end of 2018 and are looking forward to what is to come in the new year! We have accomplished so much this past year like introducing the new Contributor Site --- and there is only more to come! As part of our New Year’s Resolution we want to make sure we are doing more for Contributors this upcoming year and providing the best resources we can to help with your tasks. In 2019 we will be working on bringing you more special projects, helpful trainings, connections to other contributors and Newsela staff and productive events.

Speaking of events, we received all your feedback from the fall survey and many of you are interested in Newsela-sponsored events including trainings, professional development sessions, meet-ups with staff, forums and more. We are excited to begin working on planning these events so that we can connect with you all!

Also, please note that due to the holiday break there will be no stories published starting December 24th. Publishing will resume on January 2nd. And if you'd like to get paid before the holiday break, please submit your invoices by December 13th to guarantee payment!

Just a few more reminders for this month:

December 2nd - First Day of Hanukkah 🕯

December 13th - Submit invoices to get paid before holiday break 💰

December 17th - Check the Bulletin 👀

December 24th - January 2nd - Newsela is Closed 🔐
