After three weeks at a new school, they have ten thousand friends, and as of now, you’re one of them. Now that’s something to celebrate.
The Penn Points newspaper staff, who launched one of the first-ever, totally web-based school newspapers in the state, celebrated their 10,000 hit this past week and is fast approaching the 13,000 visit.
“I feel that we’re hitting record setting numbers faster than I would have expected,” said Rob Henry, Penn Points Editor-in-Chief.
Although the newspaper was launched only three weeks ago, the newspaper and its staff is receiving public recognition for the effort.
There was an article in the Lancaster Newspapers, the staff was interviewed by WGAL (which aired on T.V. Wednesday morning), and a video about the paper was posted as the video of the day on the worldwide educational video site, www.schooltube.com.
It’s safe to say that the Penn Points staff’s expectations of their high school online newspaper have been exceeded.
