CSS - Special Edition! Technology in Education Showcase

Fifth grade student, Perry, was live on the scene at our first annual TIES event.  Perry was both a reporter and videographer!  If that wasn't impressive enough, he downloaded, edited, and produced this segment for CSS completely on his own.  I see a future in TV for Perry!

CSS...Special Edition! Second Grade Egg Drop

Even though we've finished our CSS newscasts, the fifth graders still want to report the news!  This special edition was created, filmed, edited and produced by Alex and Sontino, and done completely on their own.  So impressive!!  Enjoy the second grade egg drop!

CSS... The last one from our fifth graders

Another exciting episode awaits!  The fifth graders have worked so hard to learn the many parts of producing a regular newscast and have done a terrific job.  I hope this is a start of a hobby or even a future in film production!

Much appreciation goes out to Mrs. Quinn, Mrs. O'Connor and Ms. Manna who made this extra curricular activity a possibility for their students.  Each class had two turns producing CSS and I am so proud of all of them!

Enjoy!  Please see our website for past episodes!  Center School Sightings
