I used to do a monthly school newsletter at my school. It was an 8 page newsletter and here's what I included:

~6 articles written by pairs of students
~Student Opinion
~Student Interview / Teacher Interview Q and A page - I had teams choose their "best" (different criteria every month) student each month to showcase, the teacher was chosen by the principal
~Sports page
~Poems, Fun and Games page

For the articles the students wrote about, I had them brainstorm every month what types of articles to write about (i.e., school events, student interests, issues, etc.). Once we established a list, I had the students vote on the top 6 stories they wanted to have featured in the newsletter. Then, the students (pairs or individuals) would sign up for the part of the newsletter they wanted to work on.
