HBW’s 7th graders were on WCBS TV this morning, after a visit from the station’s weather man John Elliott. He mangled the school’s name a bit, but gave our kids a thumbs up for their enthusiasm and artwork. WCBS doesn’t do embedded video, so you’ll have to click on the link below:
The segment that was broadcast was just a small part of the hour that Elliott spent at HBW, giving an assembly on weather. The newscaster, who told students he had thought about becoming a teacher before going into broadcast journalism, talked about the connection between science, physics and the weather, and what goes into making a TV weather broadcast. The 7th graders had just completed a section on weather studies.
And we’ll add our own shoutout to 7th and 8th grade science teacher Elsie Villavecchia. Ms. V had run into Elliott at a movie theater some time back and then invited him to speak at the middle school.
