I’ve always wanted to be a part of student led announcements. Empowering students to share their stories and the stories of their school can be a very powerful thing. At Parma we are trying to do this. We started about a month ago with a group of about 15 fourth and fifth graders. The students meet in my room before school on Wednesday and they work throughout the week to put together segments.
We are just getting started and we have a long ways to go, but I could not be more proud of the work they are creating. This work is truly the students. I do nothing but give them space, tips, and some iPads. They do all the work and all the editing.
I should write more about this and I will, but for now I hope you enjoy episode two!
