For the 2018-2019 school year, the Spring Mills Bird’s Eye View Newspaper team launched a website in replacement of their original paper newspapers.  

Journalism teacher Ms. Elizabeth Keiper has had the idea to launch a website for a long time. This year, she finally took the steps necessary to get there.  

“We have all worked collaboratively to make this happen, and I’m so proud of it. It is an honor to be a part of this. It’s Spring Mills history,” said senior and editor Kaylee Bailey. 

With the website came a lot of new skills for the writers. New jobs which need to be performed by staff members such as comment editing, poll updating, and sport score updating became a part of the operation.  

“I love having all these new responsibilities. Although I have been a part of the newspaper team for a while now, it feels like I’m still getting to learn while adapting to a more modern journalism,” said Bailey.  

Today, journalism is very media oriented. It was important for the team to learn how to relate more to the students.  

“I love getting onto the site and seeing all our hard work pay off. I didn’t used to pay much attention to the newspaper whenever it was printed. Now that it’s as convenient as typing in a web address on my phone, and I visit it all the time,” said senior Marissa Robinson.  

The newspaper team plans on continuing to make the site bigger and better for many years to come.
