Paint Lick Elementary has a daily live news program. Students from the fifth grade sign up to participate each year. The program is broadcast at 8:00 every morning and includes the daily announcements for the day which includes birthdays, weather, menus and the Pledge the Allegiance. Also, a brief Arts Minute is presented daily. This Arts Minute includes information from visual arts, music, drama or dance.
The news team consists of five students. News team positions are anchor, co-anchor, meteorologist, sounds effects and camera. The anchor and co-anchor positions give the Welcome, Daily Announcements and Birthdays. The sound effect person is in charge of playing the Star Spangled Banner before the pledge and Happy Birthday after the birthday announcements.
Students rotate through positions so that everyone gets a turn for each position. The students enjoy producing the daily broadcast and learn valuable lessons in cooperation and public speaking.
