Students at SPASH are getting real life experience in a different kind of print journalism. You won't be able to pick up a copy, instead, you'll log on.
The newspaper business has changed over the years, and the same goes for ones written by high school students.
"Nobody really wants that handheld copy anymore," said Junior, Rebecca Kurszewski, "they just want to be able to go online and look at it."
Students at SPASH have the opportunity as a junior to work on the school's newspaper, "The Mirror". In just the past year they've seen big changes since moving their entire publication online.
"This year we can publish quicker," said senior, Hannah Wetzel, "its faster, its more productive, you get to see the kind of progress that we make."
"The Mirror" focuses mostly on stories that can be related to high school students. They get some of their ideas from what they see at home.
"Sometimes we take big topics, like what we see on Channel 7, we break them down so students at SPASH understand them."
Stories including a very controversial topic that surrounded the Marshfield dance team.
"I heard about that and I was intrigued by it," remarked Kurszewski, "I wrote about how our SPASH poms team is feeling about that, what our administration would do."
Their hands on approach to digging for stories gives them a real life experience.
"Our adviser and teacher has let us take the reins of it instead of instructing us to do something," said senior, Anna Katner, "we're learning from doing and finding the ways to produce a newspaper on our own."
