“Slick is sick. ” That’s the word on the street, or at least in the halls of James Lick Middle School. Slick is a retired magazine from the former 826 Valencia Writers’ Room at James Lick. For four months at atime, eighth-grade students worked with 826 tutors as they brainstormed, investigated, and wrote articles to create this lifestyles magazine for middle schoolers. Whether you’re wondering about skateboarding, soccer, make-up, or Tupac, each issue of Slick will answer some questions for you!
