Cool Schools: St. James Episcopal Day School's Green Room
BATON ROUGE- "The Green Room" at St. James Episcopal Day School is dedicated to producing quality newscasts for students at the school.
Broadcasting instructor, Alison Kaple, says it's a chance for her 5th graders to showcase their communication skills.
"We've learned that it takes a lot of practice to be on camera," said Frances Lejeune, a 5th grader at the school.
Each student at the school has the opportunity to be on camera, but it's the 5th graders who host the shows.
"I have some children that are really into this," said Kaple. "not only broadcasting communication, but we are also doing acting and singing, and incorporating reading, writing and academic skills."
We salute you, St. James, for being a really cool school!
