Student Run Daily News Program

News @ 9 is the morning news broadcast on closed-circuit TV at Spring Creek Elementary. Each classroom on campus has TV reception allowing everyone on campus to receive updates about what is going on in and around Spring Creek. This can include upcomming school functions, new programs that are being offered, and who our Students of the Week are.

The news program is run entirely by our Students here at Spring Creek. They operate the cameras, control sound mixing and computer graphics and co-anchor with our Principal and Assistant Principal.

Students who participate learn the value of team work as they work cohesively to accomplish the task of publishing a consistent and entertaining morning news show. Students also take turns learning and using every piece of equipment in the studio so that they gain a better understanding of all the elements involved in broadcast television.
