Students at London Towne Elementary School are making sure everyone stays informed.

FAIRFAX COUNTY, Va. — Students at London Towne Elementary School are making sure all of their fellow classmates are staying informed thanks to their morning announcements newscast.

They work tirelessly to put the show together, and just got a tech upgrade.

Gone are the cables and projectors going to the classrooms. Instead, they're using Zoom, which allows them more creativity.

The daily show runs about five to seven minutes and is made up of content generated from students, teachers and staff around the school. The students involved in the production all have different roles that work together to create a newscast, just like here on Get Up DC!

Come see us in a few years, you might just have a future in TV!
