Our NIE teachers and students look forward to the annual Serial Story that runs in The Columbian newspaper and ePaper every spring.

Every year we choose a Serial Story to run in our newspaper and ePaper for Clark County students and teachers to enjoy as an additional NIE tool within the classroom. Teachers who sign up through NIE to follow the Serial Story will also receive the story’s curriculum to use as a guide.

Typically, you will see the Serial Story in the paper running chapter by chapter every Tuesday & Thursday, March-May with the exception of spring break.

This Year’s Serial Story

Hang tight! We will release details about the serial story once the next story has been chosen. If you would like to be notified with serial story updates, please let us know by emailing us at nie@columbian.com or give us a call at 360-735-4643. Thank you for your patience!

Last Year’s Serial Story

S.O.R. Losers

Every kid is expected to play one sport a year at South Orange River Middle School. That’s why the school creates a soccer team for a bunch of boys who would rather work on computers, history and English. Not only are they not athletic, they don’t want to be on the team. School rules prevail however, so they must play. As the season begins, they lose games in hilariously amazing ways. As the losing continues, pressure mounts from schoolmates, faculty and family, to win. The boys struggle to be themselves both on and off the field, and by so doing, involve themselves in a sports story that is as wonderfully funny as it is unique, giving new meaning to the term, losers.
