Morning Announcements

SCHOOL NEWS: Patrick Flowers (left) and Dermaya Delva (right) are the current students who are taking over announcements.

Morning announcements are presented every day by the Inlet Groves staff Mr. Lopez, the principal, Ms. Banks, the 9th-grade assistant principal, and Ms. Latson the 12th-grade assistant principal.Β 

However, for a change, Mr. Lopez and the staff have decided to give students a chance to present the morning announcements.Β 

Patrick Flowers is the leader of the student morning announcements. At the end of every announcement, Patrick includes a β€œsong of the day”. β€œThe β€˜song of the day’ is to give students something else to think about,” said Flowers. β€œIt distracts students from the stress they are feeling in the morning, and it allows them to relieve the stress they have when they start the day off.” 

On the other hand, most students would disagree with Flowers’ song of the day.Β

β€œI think that it is better to hear a student’s voice”, said Arielle Gibson a junior in the LPN program. β€œBut I don’t like the music, it throws me off. It’s too early.”

β€œI like it, it’s different because I hear the same voice every day, so hearing a fellow classmate is better,” said Shamaelle Milce, a Junior in the LPN program. “But I don’t like the music at the end either because it sounds glitchy. It makes me want to go to sleep.”

Mr. Lopez said he allows students to do morning announcements because he wants them to take ownership of their school, and enjoy activities. He said he wants this to encourage them to engage in more student events.

“The voice of different classmates every time grabs the attention of students in the morning more than hearing the same voice every day,” said Mr. Lopez.

    This was a nicely written story. I liked how you showed different opinions on how others felt about students presenting the morning announcements. In my opinion I think that students doing the morning announcements is a good change for this year because it’s more pleasant to hear a variety of voices rather than just one voice everyday.

    Good job Danica, this article made me realize how much of a difference having a student saying the announcements makes. Usually when Mr. Lopez says the announcements I zone out but when the students came on it caught my attention like Mr. Lopez said.

    This was a good article because there has been a lot of talk about how they have let students do the morning announcements and how they play music after the announcements. This article allowed me to understand why they play music after the announcements and who came up with the idea to let students do the morning announcements.

    Students doing the morning announcements is amusing yet informative. I love how students add their own flair to the morning announcements.
