Holly Hills Elementary students featured in final season of Super School News

Holly Hills Elementary students on Super School NewsStudents from Holly Hills Elementary recently appeared on Super School News on Rocky Mountain PBS. The program features fifth- and sixth-grade students from area schools who are news anchors and reporters for a two-minute news broadcast about their school.

A group of fifth-graders at Holly Hills interviewed their classmates to determine what things about their school are most important to them, then they wrote a script completely on their own. They explained that Holly Hills has students who speak more than 49 different languages and that the school is split into two different buildings, Holly Hills and Holly Ridge. They shared the different learning opportunities that are offered at the Hollys, including STEM Lego for every student. They also reported on the Hollys’ CARE program. Students also designed a banner for the news anchor desk. At the Hollys, fifth-grade students can watch CNN in their classrooms, so they chose to sign out with a pun, just like CNN reporters!


On the day of the taping, eight students went to the Rocky Mountain PBS studios and recorded their episode. They got a tour of the building and they got to see how their recording is edited behind the scenes. They also learned that this year is the 40th anniversary and final season of Super School News. They were honored to be featured on one of the last Super School News broadcasts.

Congratulations to these Holly Hills students:
