The Rocket News Crew is for selected 5th-grade students. Students are able to apply for this select group during the spring semester of their 4th-grade year and then again in the first nine weeks of the year. Students apply through a multi-level process that includes an application, a portfolio that includes a sample video, and teacher referrals. Students accepted into the Rocket News crew show excellence in academics and character.
This group of students meets Monday-Friday mornings between 7:35 - 8:10 a.m. in the Library Media Center with Ms. Young. Students create the script, record, and edit daily morning announcement videos.
