    Broadcast Team

    Fifth graders are selected to be part of the daily broadcast production.  Students work in teams of four students for two weeks at a time on a rotational basis.  The students are responsible for planning, preparing and producing the morning announcments.  The students practice both public speaking and technical skills. Greenscreen technology as well as video editing are key skills these students are able to develop.  Students also gain confidence as public speakers.  The criteria for selection for this team includes teacher recommendation, a successful audition as well as exemplary behavior and citizenship.  Fourth graders try out at the end of the year and are notified before the beginning of the next school year if selected.  Fifth graders new to the school in the fall may also audition then.
