WELCOMING THE FUTURE OF BROADCASTING!!!

MARK AND SOME OF THE KIDS FROM GILBERT ELEMENTARY.

It was one of those mornings today, to say the least!  Not only was the show a busy one, but we focused on the kids in our community, which is always a fun way to spend the morning!  We chatted with Tamra Bott, Principal of the Graveraet Intermediate School and Carrie Jurasin, 5-th grade teacher at Graveraet in Marquette to find out more about the changes in the works for 5-th grade classes scheduled to transfer from the Graveraet school to the Bothwell School.  We have more on that below.

BIG NEWS GUY SURROUNDED BY LITTLE PEOPLE.

We also welcomed the Gilbert Elementary 3-rd graders from Gwinn this morning.  We had a total of 33 kids from Mrs. Dunham’s and Mrs. Sather’s classes get a complete tour of our station studios and offices as part of a special field trip that also included lunch at Bonanza and an afternoon stop at the U-P Childrens’ Museum.  As you can see from these photos, all of those smiling faces can make it a crowded studio!  But it was great to have all of the kids visiting  in our little radio ranch and we welcomed them with open arms!  Here’s to the future of Marquette County!

UPDATE ON THE PLANNED 5-TH GRADE CLASSROOM TRANSFER IN THE MARQUETTE AREA PUBLIC SCHOOL DISTRICT.

TAMRA BOTT AND CARRIE JURASIN FROM THE MARQUETTE SCHOOLS.

Tamra Bott, Principal of the Graveraet Intermediate School and Carrie Jurasin, 5-th grade teacher at Graveraet in Marquette joined Mark & Walt to have a discussion about the changes in the works for Marquette Area Public School’s 5-th grade classes who are scheduled to be transferred from the Graveraet school to the Bothwell School.  They shared their insight into the challenges and opportunities presented by the transfer for both the students and the parents affected by this decision.  To listen to the complete interview, please click “HERE“, and to log on to the Marquette Area Public Schools website, please click “HERE“.

ALWAYS FUN TO SEE THE KIDS!

We always love to have a chance to have kids’ groups come by for a tour of our station facilities. For a bunch of old, grizzled and jaded broadcast veterans like us to have a chance to see the kid’s faces light up when they can get on the air or actually see how the whole process works, it downright priceless!  If you have a group that would be interested in a tour, just give us a call at 228-6800 or drop us an e-mail!  We’d love to have you come on by!

CHEERS!
