The morning announcement are delivered every morning at 8:35 from Studio 56. Student crew members produce a live morning show to share news with the Atkinson student body.
Auditions are held in September to be a member of the crew. Crew members are required to be in Studio 56 by 8:10 during their show weeks. Crew members run graphics, audio, camera, produce scrolling information, and read the news live on air. Passing grades are a requirement as well as maintaining good attendance, attitude, and teamwork skills.
Audtions are open to all 6th, 7th, and 8th grade students who wish to be a part of studio. Students must demonstrate skills in typing, computer skills, speaking, listening, and teamwork. Preference is given to returning crew members.
