Video News Show

My students need a camcorder to record the daily morning news show for our entire school.

My Students

Our students come from many different countries. They are always working hard to master the English language. The daily morning news show gives them the opportunity to partake in an extra curricular activity. They need a new camcorder to take their news show to a new level.

Our students are fantastic!

They are very hard working and determined. We are a public school in the state of Georgia. Our school's main focus is to give our students the best education possible and to give them many opportunities to experience all the wonderful things out there.

My Project

The camcorder that we are looking for will help our students produce the daily news show. Our students write, record, and produce the daily news show every morning. The students search for stories that impact our students' daily lives. Having a working camcorder will help them enhance the show.

This project is very important because it impacts our entire elementary school.

The daily morning news show is viewed by the entire school. The news show is a major component of our STEM based school approach.
