WEPLC Morning News is a unique and valuable resource at our school that promotes communication, leadership values, and school pride. Third grade students try out and are accepted to be a member of the Morning News Crew to broadcast our daily announcements. Being on the Morning News Crew provides students with many learning experiences and opportunities. They will also have an important leadership role, as students will look up to them as an example during the school year. Members of the Morning Crew will be expected to demonstrate positive behavior and school pride, as well as respect toward all teachers, staff and students at our school.
Being a member of the morning news crew teaches students to work as a team and to complete tasks with other students such as writing and presenting news reports. They will also experience many benefits such as recognition among the student body, association with fellow crew members, personal growth in leadership and communication skills, confidence in public speaking, and technology and equipment skills.
