Channel Falcon Students

Here at Fair Oaks Elementary, we are lucky to have the Channel Falcon news broadcast every morning to help get us ready for the day.  Ms. Hill and a rotation of 37 fifth graders record and produce the news in our own Channel Falcon studio. 

On February 5th 2018, the Channel Falcon News team had the opportunity to visit CCX Media (Channel 12 News) studio in Brooklyn Park.  Students were able to tour the studio, see how the news is made, ask many questions and participate in their own short green screen segment.  They also learned how lighting could be used in production from one of the professionals at CCX Media.  Students were able to make a lot of awesome connections between our Fair Oaks Elementary studio and a professional studio.  It was a great time of learning and real world experiences!

Picture of students in a circleThe Fair Oaks Fuelers, a health conscious team of 5th graders, were invited by the Dairy Council to go to the 2018 Kids Day at Super Bowl Experience which was held at the Convention Center.  They had an exciting morning of meeting some football players as well as other “celebs”.  They also spent some time being physically active.  Check out the Fueler’s photo Album!
