Student News Program Making a Difference for Elementary Students

We all get our news in different forms. Some watch the news on TV, others through the internet and podcasts, but how many of us get the news from puppets? For the students at Colbert Elementary School in Spokane, WA, news from puppets is a regular monthly occurrence.

Initially, it began as a replacement for school assemblies, but the school news became something much more than just news. The news reports from student-controlled puppets not only focus on the character word of the month, fundraising events, and anti-teasing strategies, they also provide an avenue for students to take leadership roles in their school and have fun doing it.
