Activities & Clubs

Morning News Broadcast

Every morning, the “Thiriot News” program starts promptly at 9:05 A.M. It is hosted by students who have been trained as TV announcers. The news reporters share current events, present student awards, highlight special events, and lead the school in reciting the Pledge of Allegiance. The Thiriot News is the place to tune for the lunch menu, the daily weather report, and videos of special activities. This awesome, student news program is viewed in every classroom, every day.
