Valley News Network

The Valley News Network (VNN) is our daily news broadcast on Valley Crossing's television network at the start of each school day.

VNN's 9:15 broadcast signals the beginning of the school day. Many school announcements are disseminated through VNN. VNN Broadcasts can be found on the YouTube page for VNN, linked here.

The VNN Broadcast varies from day to day, but it typically includes the following:

  • Daily Announcements for VCES
  • Local or worldwide news
  • Local weather forecast
  • School birthdays and interesting facts about the date
  • The Pledge of Allegiance

Special Reports are also featured. Students may give a book recommendation, share a joke or a word of the day, discuss more detailed announcements, or interview staff members.

Crew members must become proficient in all VNN assignments and switch jobs as scheduled. Jobs are as follows:

  • News Anchor
  • Birthday Anchor
  • Weather Anchor
  • Special Reporter
  • Computer & Sound Board Operator
  • Camera Operator

4th and 5th grade students may apply to be on a VNN crew each spring, preparing for the upcoming year.
