Join us behind the scenes at MAPS! Today we are taking a look at the student news at Dorothy Dodds. Did you know that 4th grade students at Dorothy Dodds release a daily video? Two students from each classroom are elected by their teachers to be anchors for three broadcasts. Students sit in front of a green screen and read from a script. This is pulled together by media specialist Ann Woell with the help of many other individuals. They even have their very own Dorothy Dodds theme song!
