Each morning right after the bell rings, teachers at the Green Top turn on their classroom smart TVs and log in to TGT News, a daily video program featuring fourth- and fifth-grade students delivering the day’s news, weather, and various surprises.
Based on a traditional morning news program, TGT News — TGT stands for “The Green Top” — packs a lot of information and entertainment into its 5- to 10-minute running time each morning. A rotating lineup of student broadcasters read the daily announcements, lead the Pledge of Allegiance, report the day’s weather forecast, interview special visitors, and sometimes turn up on the scene at surprise locations around the building.
Students and staff look forward to seeing the regular daily features, including Magical Mondays generally feature a science experiment from Mr. Tipton, the Discovery Lab director. Capture the Flag winners are revealed for ELA and math classes on Tuesdays and Wednesdays. On Thursdays, a special guest delivers the week’s health tip. And the announcement of the Class of the Week is delivered on Friday’s show.
