I really liked the idea of a student-led program that would spread aware- ness of things happening in our building with our students and staff. We use this broadcast as a chance to showcase different staff and what they may have going on in their classrooms. We spend time showing stu- dent projects in the class- room and other special events for our students. We also focus on student athletes, their accom- plishments, or even just spreading information about their sport. The same with clubs in the school, we like to highlight all groups so that we can increase awareness and hopeful- ly inspire more students to join all the exciting things that our school has to offer. sometimes we will have student-led interviews and other times we may just have a photo slideshow of ev- erything that has been happening, that we call, 'scenes around the school'. a 'news crew" favorite is to include games or trivia for stu- dents and even staff. how I currently in- clude this is by sending out a form to all my sev- enth grade students at the beginning of the year and have them express interest in being on the "news crew". There are many differ- ent areas where students can be involved. We have interviewers, photog- raphers, news gathers, and writers. at this time, the requirements to be a part of this opportunity are simple. They should be able to make it before school on some mornings for meetings or to film interviews, they have to maintain passing grades, and have to exceed be- havior expectations. I usually have 10 -15 students that end up be- ing involved in the broad- cast in some way. We have a lot of fun together and it's nice to see the students interested in what is going on in our school. It also reaches the community as we share the broadcast on our social media pages and our youTube chan- nel, so it is extremely nice for the community to see what we do here and watch our students take pride in their accom- plishments. I would love to see what we do, eventually become a middle school media class where we can expand what we do and learn even more. candy Meyer 7th grade enrichment Teacher WINSLOW ELEMENTARY HONOR ROLL 3RD GRADING PERIOD GRADE 4 All A's Honor Roll Trinity Gross ava hinton elijah Mcconnell hunter seger A/B Honor Roll Braxton Barley haiden cook raegan drew Brianna Green elisha Jenkins aubree Martin Khloe nixon Mylee Pride addison sams Gracie Zimmerman GRADE 5 All A's Honor Roll ryleigh Gard Jax hudson Madison Mccandless naomi stafford nola Thompson A/B Honor Roll Malachi Barrett Paislie Benefiel Ford carrico Wyatt Knight Kacee Mason carter Moss austin smith Matelyn Williams GRADE 6 All A's Honor Roll neva schilling eli Woolsey A/B Honor Roll Breena allen Kole aydelott sophia clark alexis Gayhart Gemma Gonzales creighton Gromer Blake houchin Xander Kendle adyson LeMond Zoey LeMond ebony Mason Jayla Miller Kodee Miller sylas Osborne Tate Pauw rayden schooler Braylee schuessler ava seger Jackson Taylor Ms. Riesenbeck's Title 1 Preschool Classes were visited by her family's Pygmy Goats Sage and Scarlet.
