Bell Avenue Elementary School in the Robla School District was established in 1947, its long-standing reputation within the community has impacted the generations of families that continue attending year after year. It is a school that is invested in its students and holds something special within the community.
Mr. Weeks has added to this impact through a media program and their school SEVA Studio. With their newscast, “Tiger News,” and the ability to create fun and new videos, these students can continue to share out within their community and have a voice through video. Having such an amazing program truly gives these students, who may not have the opportunity otherwise, to learn amazing skills through media that can be shared with the entire school community. Giving these students the opportunity to strengthen all the skills associated with media production will continue to impact their future choices and paths, and allow them a wonderful outlet to learn and be creative at school and beyond.
