The mission of the Oakcrest Elementary's Media program is to ensure that the students and staff are effective users of ideas and information. This is accomplished by providing intellectual and physical access to materials in all formats; by providing instruction to foster competence and stimulate interest in reading, viewing, and using information and ideas; and by working with other educators to design learning strategies to meet the needs of individual students.

Each morning our Eagle TV News crew broadcasts live school wide from a TV studio in the media center. The entire show is operated by students and supervised by our Media Specialist.
Students learn how to use: a video camera, a switcher, a sound board, how to speak into a microphone, how to write a script, and display a professional appearance while on TV.
The purpose of our show is to let the school know about daily and future happenings and schedules.
