With the beginning of the 2016-2017 school year and the return of a newspaper to Arvada High School the newspaper staff have chosen to name this publication The Arvada Argos.
In Ancient Greece, there was a man named Odysseus. He left his home in Ithaca to fight in the Trojan War. When he returned after 20 years, everything had changed. His house had been taken over and his wife was being held captive. While in disguise to reconquer his home, his dog, Argos, was one of the few who recognized Odysseus.
There have been many changes for the newspaper program at Arvada High School. Newspaper stated as a class but then there was a brief time there was no newspaper at all and then moved into a club. In the 2017-2018 school year it became a whole class and now the news staff has a Twitter and a YouTube channel, BDTV. Our newspaper has returned home to Arvada High School, and we are planning to make the best out of it. While our absence wasn’t as long as Odysseus’ absence, both returned.
Being the Arvada Bulldogs, we thought it would be fitting to honor the faithfulness of Argos. Just as Argos was his master’s watchdog, so are we always watching out for our school and community.
