The students in TV-I B completed producing their shows.  Some students produced another episode of "What's Newsz?" while one student produced a music video show.  The class will begin work on an episode of "On-Air" that will focus on the NNPS archery teams and their competitions.

The senior class (TV-II) completed producing their shows and working on story packages.  They will begin work on their senior project, which is a project of their choice.  They will also create a "résumé reel" that will highlight their best work.  This will apply to seniors in the first-year class (TV-I) as well.
