WGTE News Crew

Each year we select a handful of responsible Fifth Graders to report the daily announcements on the Grovetown Morning News Show (WGTE). Our News Crew members rotate days that they appear on the show, and must also be willing to assist in all areas of the Learning Commons. We look for upbeat, well-behaved students who have a positive, willing attitude; and who require little supervision, to fulfill these roles. In order to be considered each candidate must have:
1) A completed online application (submitted by applicant via Google Forms


2) An online audition (submitted by applicant via FlipGrid)

This link is also included in the Student Application Form.
3) Teacher recommendation (submitted by teacher in Google Forms)
(Grade level teachers are provided with the link to the Teacher Recommendation Form)
*Applicants must be in the fifth grade in order to be considered, or rising 5th graders for May applicants. Decisions are made based on a combination of applicant responses, audition video, teacher recommendation and the total number of applicants. Members are expected to continue demonstrating the traits listed above in order to continue serving in the position.
Students may apply in late May/ early August when decisions will be made for the school year.
