Brentwood Safety Patrol is for 5th graders who demonstrate the Life Skills and are willing to donate time at the start or end of the school day to help keep younger students safe during the high-traffic times at Brentwood. Applications go out to interested 5th graders at beginning of the school year.
Interested students submit a complete application, are chosen and trained, and then work from September through June.
Participating 5th grade students spend two mornings each week collecting information about school events and producing a 5-7 minute news program (The Weekly Scoop) seen once a week by the whole campus! They act, run cameras, and direct each other's performances while interacting with staff and students.
Facilitated by Film Kids instructors and a faculty liaison, this project provides a social and cultural service to the school community, as well as teaching broadcast journalism techniques.
