The Sentinel Kopee


“Kupi,” meaning owl in the language of Ksanka, commonly known as Kootenai. They are a tribe of Native Americans originally from the East of the Rocky Mountains in lower Canada near the border.  This is where Sentinel High School got the name for its literary magazine “Kopee.”The Kopee is a mostly student-run magazine for Sentinel students to submit their art and writing to be published in the book at the end of the school year. Ms. Messenger is the staff advisor for the magazine and she along with the students working on it have put their hearts into making sure the student body’s talent is recognized.  The staff of the magazine spent most of their time last year redoing the appearance of this magazine to make it even better for the student body. Now it is a beautiful book that so many students put their heart into so that it could be the best magazine possible. 

Preparations for the Kopee are underway once more and the staff is looking for submissions from the student body. Whether it be a painting, a drawing, photographs, digital art, ceramics, a poem, or a short story. All poetry and prose should be under 2,000 words, and although a student’s voice is important, this is a school magazine so work should not include gratuitous violence and/or foul language. Your work could be an amazing addition to the pages of this book. Up to five submissions from any student are welcome and appreciated so please send any work you are proud of to [email protected]by Saturday, March 26, along with any questions you may have.  If writing is something you are passionate about, the Kopee offers a great opportunity to share your work.
