Our WPEN studio delivers the latest in Pinecrest Parrot School News. Every Monday, Wednesday and Friday the WPEN News Crew livestreams our morning announcements school-wide through an embedded secure connection on our website. Aside from school news, our team prepares segments on book of the week, local weather, entertainment, sports, community events, staff spotlight, special student recognitions, Wayback Wednesday songs, and/or upcoming school events. Further, we also have a talk show area for students participating in our birthday book club to be interviewed and celebrated on the morning news school wide.


Using the latest software and technology, our 5th grade WPEN Crew members work tirelessly before school to write, edit and report our news daily through the live news feed, which is viewed in each homeroom class via the class interactive board. Our goal is to engage and empower the students, by promoting computer science and effective use of technology and media integration in our curriculum.
