KGES: How it works

Fourth and fifth graders at GES have the opportunity to participate in KGES, the Grapevine Elementary morning news show.  Each morning we broadcast a student-produced show to give GES the happenings for the day.  Our crews typically have about 5-6 kids who do the following jobs:

  • Two Anchors:  These students share the day's announcements 

  • Chef: This student announces lunch for the day, as well as important nutritional facts

  • Meteorologist: This student tells GES what the weather looks like for the upcoming days as well as information about weather related events

  • Birthday Brigade: A birthday announcer who proclaims the birthday/ birthdays of the day

  • GCISD Reads: A student who announces the names of the kids or teachers who have completed the GCISD Reads challenge

  • Teleprompter: This person is our "cue card" person, and is in charge of advancing the slides for our on-camera person

  • Switcher: This person is in charge of advancing the background slides for our green screen.

In addition to the regular program, we sometimes have other special features that involve all students in the school. These include:

  • Commercials for School Events like GES Star Bank, the carnival, the talent show, Student Council events, Reflections, and the book fair. These commercials are usually written and performed by the students of the groups that are being advertised

  • Interviews with Boy/Girl Scouts, visiting authors, Student winners (Reflections, Hoop Shoot, Spelling Bee, Geography Bee, etc.), community members with special talents, and even teachers!

  • Lessons about character qualities, exercise, nutrition, and safety by staff members such as the counselor and the nurse.

  • Highlight segments of special school events such as Field Day, the carnival, choir performances, and the Special Olympics

  • Classes from all grades sharing what they are doing in their classrooms.

If your child thinks they might want to join KGES, the signup is sent with the clubs form at the beginning of the school year.  We hope to see you on KGES!
