KFWE

One of the highlights each day at Frostwood is the live televised broadcast presented by the KFWE crew. Under the direction of Amy Markham and Kim McCormick, a crew of fourth grade students takes charge to present the daily announcements. The broadcast crew arrives at the studio in the library media center at 7:40 to prepare the day's broadcast. These students have experiences with KFWE that they have nowhere else on campus. These experiences include:

  • Operating a video or audio mixer
  • Giving the daily announcements
  • Learning the parts and operation of video cameras
  • Speaking in front of an audience as a live television anchor with an actual script
  • Using a teleprompter

 

The process is the same as a real live television studio! In addition to the United States pledge, Texas pledge and Frostwood creed, daily announcements are made, along with a potpourri of special features including mystery teacher, weather, trivia, lunch menu, student council messages, library announcements, and many other segments. FWE focuses on Frostwood students and what's happening in their classrooms. You may see anything from a taped session to a live interview, or a holiday special and special PTA news events.
