On Monday, December 15, Iroquois students involved with the WIRO television studio took a break from Iroquois News Now programming to help students from Schenectady's Van Corlaer Elementary School produce a newscast for their own school. The Iroquois students and WIRO advisers helped the Van Corlaer students load their scripts into the teleprompter, get settled into the anchor chairs, and prepare to film segments that ranged from sports to science news to cooking. The production was to be shown to the whole school at Van Corlaer. The Iroquois connection with the Schenectady elementary school continued later that week when 200 students visited Iroquois for some reading, math/science, and craft activities. That partnership is now in its 8th year.
