‘Week in Review’

Students Week in Review
Connetquot High School students enrolled in English teacher Ross Castaldo’s Sports Journalism half-year elective course have recently been writing, producing and filming an end of the week wrap-up, titled “Week in Review.” This is an opportunity to update all faculty and students of news-worthy happenings throughout the school.

Connetquot High School junior Maggie Gioia and sophomore Joe Savino, both aspiring journalists, have been serving as the news anchors since the broadcast’s inception in mid-November. They will be continuing this effort through mid-January, when a new group of newscasters will take over for them.

“This is a great opportunity for the students,” said Mr. Castaldo. “The biggest reward that the students will be able to take out of this is that they’re getting the hands-on skills required to be a news reporter, and none of this would have been possible without Christina Poppe, our district director of English Language Arts.”
