As a publication for the students by the students, The Sentinel Sound strives to inform, advocate for and entertain the student body and local community of Steilacoom High School. We do this by promoting awareness of current issues, providing a space for student expression and representing the student body through bringing positive change. The Sentinel Sound staff members adhere to the protected speech regulations of the First Amendment and its subsequent journalistic standards and promise to uphold them to the best of our abilities. Sentinel Sound Staff members make all content and editorial decisions.


The Sentinel Sound opinion section reflects the views of The Sentinel Sound student staff and not necessarily the sentiments of the faculty, staff or administration of the high school or district.
The Sentinel Sound encourages student and community involvement and therefore welcomes letters to the editor. Limit letters to 300 words or less. The Sentinel Sound reserves the right to edit articles so long as the content remains the same. Use this URL to access the form.
