Additional instructions and a more detailed timeline will be shared in a future edition of Principals’ Weekly.
You must ensure that the “Statement on Accessibility” below is posted on the homepage of your school’s website by March 31, to inform people with disabilities that they may request that the webmaster or other appropriate person provide access to online information or functionality that is currently not available.

The students with the top 5 videos got to go behind the scenes at NBC studios. We visited the famous "30 Rock," saw the newsroom, the control room, the graphic design team, and the cameramen. They were very kind and informative, taking the time to answer our questions and tell us all about their jobs. We didn't see any celebrities, but we got to see the SNL studio, Meredith Viera's studio, and we did the weather report on the green screen! We learned a lot, and had a lot of fun.
