The purpose of the Charger Council is to:

The news show will feature the Pledge of Allegiance to the American Flag, moment of silence, various school announcements, daily lunch menu, birthdays and highlights on special school events.

The actual news show will air live on Monday – Friday mornings, except during school assemblies and other specific days during the school year when announced. Students chosen to be on the Charger News Crew as announcers and techs will be required to arrive in the elementary library by 8:30 AM on the days they are scheduled to film.

Students in the 4th and 5th grade will take part in creating the yearbook by taking photographs of events, interviewing students and teachers for stories, quotes and polls, and assisting in planning the overall design of the yearbook. Meetings will consist of learning how to photograph, journalism writing and photographing of school events, reviewing and editing completed yearbook assignments, as well as designing the yearbook.

Some assignments will require work during the school day. We will coordinate these assignments with your child’s teacher, which means Yearbook Staff members will have to maintain the work and behavior standards set forth by their classroom teacher and MCES in order to participate in yearbook activities. Other assignments will require students to attend after school events. A calendar will be provided and parent consent for these assignments will be required.

This experience will allow for opportunities in leadership, teamwork and creativity across grade levels. We are excited to offer this unique opportunity to our Elementary students, as we believe their creativity can be what makes our yearbook the most innovative and diverse publication you will ever purchase!
