Stoner Prairie - October 22, 2012


Beginning this school year, Fitchburg Area Community Television and Stoner Prairie Elementary school have started a collaborative partnership called “Stoner Prairie Video Production” which involves students creating a designed newscast showcasing our school and community. This month a core group of 4th and 5th grade students are learning how to use equipment, capture footage, edit footage, and create a finished newscast. The finished newscast will be shown on both our school website and FACTV's educational channel. To access the newscast on our school website, click on the tab on the left side called FACTV and Stoner Prairie Productions.

At the end of the month, this core group will be traveling to the studio to create the newscast. Each month, new students will be invited to participate in this after-school opportunity on either a Monday or Wednesday afternoon.   Stay tuned for the upcoming newscast!
