You can accomplish this with the [Category] placeholder within the News Notification. This will pull in the Course Name and Section ID so for Example English Honors - 1 would display where English Honors is the Course Name and - 1 is the Section ID (anything after the - is the ID)

Here is an example notification that goes out: "A news story has been posted to English Honors - 1:".

To edit the News Notification, navigate to:
  1. Core > Communication > Notification 
  2. Select Notifications
  3. Select News from the Category dropdown
  4. Click Edit next to News Notification
  5. Insert the placeholder [category] where you wish for this information to display
Note: If this is just a News Category such as Homepage News, then the Category will display as Homepage News and not a Course Name/Section
