The group of 5th through 8th graders learned about the aquarium's penguins and about on penguin; Yellow/Purple, who walks with the assistance of a hand made boot due to a torn foot tendon suffered several years ago. The students are looking at using their 3-D scanner and printer to help the aquarium with crafting a new boot for Yellow/Purple. (Sean D. Elliot/The Day)

Behind the Scenes - MMS Morning Announcements

By Jeff Danko - Grade 6 Student



Mystic Middle School’s Broadcasting team’s familiar and steady voices echo through countless classrooms here at Mystic Middle School every morning. This is all thanks to our MMS broadcasting studio and Ms. Prince (the facilitator), and our district tech department.  Now, how do we put these great announcements together for you? It all starts at 8:00 AM in the morning when six of us meet and set everything up in the TV Studio. The studio  is located on the second floor above the library media center. Upon arrival, we turn on the lights, start the computer, compile the announcements from PowerSchool, and set up the teleprompter. On special occasions, we’ll use the blue screen to transport the announcers to another location, create bodiless announcers or even turn them into elves. Then we review and rehearse the day's news copy and do some last-minute checks in the mirror to make sure our hair is just right and we have nothing on our faces. Feel free to view our morning announcements streamed-live every morning by linking in to: http://video.stoningtonschools.org/show?video=42fcee435700&apg=db67b788 .

Then, at 8:10 AM it’s lights, camera, action! The announcements start!
