The student body here at G. Ray Bodley has thought up a creative addition to our busy mornings.
Students have collaborated on a project called “GRB News.” Each morning during Guided Study Hall, a video clip is shown featuring events going on at the high school, the weather, and sports among many other topics.
The students have done a great job so far, as last week was the first round of showings. GRB News also has its very own Twitter page with announcements, and can be found at @GRBNews. Check it out! Continue reading
