Changes in Broadcast

We are revamping the Broadcast this coming year. Instead of having one Broadcast (that must fit within 15 minute homeroom), we will produce 4 shorter videos each week:

  • ACTIVITIES
  • OPPORTUNITIES
  • PRINCIPAL’S MESSAGE
  • VIDEO OF THE WEEK

Why? First, because practically nobody in the school was watching the Broadcast as of the end of the last school year. We went from being an important part of the Galileo community, to being irrelevant.

Second, the Broadcast stopped being fun! Student last spring said, “It was like we were doing it just to get it done.” I truly believe that #2 contributed to #1. Trying to fit all the announcements into 13 minutes meant that most weeks we couldn’t have fun or do anything silly. Now we’ll have room for that.

There’s also room for INNOVATION!

TEAMS TO BEGIN:

Mr. Machtay needs a team of 3 students who will take responsibility for ACTIVITIES video for the first 6 weeks of school. This video needs to be completed by the end of the day Tuesday. SPORTS must be included — scores of last week’s games as well as announcement of games for the next week.

Also a team of 3 students who will take responsibility for OPPORTUNITIES for the first 6 weeks of school. You need a contact person with Ms. Serena Chan in the College & Career Office in Counseling. You need to find ways to liven up these announcements.

I DO NOT WANT TO HAVE 1-3 STUDENTS JUST WORKING ON BROADCASTS ALL YEAR! Everyone should have an opportunity to make your own videos and be creative. Everyone needs to step forward and work on Broadcasts for some part of the year.

LET’S IMPRESS THE HELL OUT OF THE SCHOOL WITH OUR INCREDIBLE BROADCASTS!
