SONAR Magazine

Welcome to SONAR, the SFDS Upper School Literary Magazine!

Each spring, every 5th, 6th, 7th, and 8th grader submits a piece of writing to be considered for publication in SONAR. Poems, stories, and short and long personal essays written in and out of school are acceptable submissions, and the upper school English teachers read through each piece with the end goal of selecting exemplary writings from each grade to be published.
