School News


School News is a WTIP feature that airs during North Shore Morning and North Shore Digest weekdays during the school year. Students gather news about the happenings and activities in their school, create a news report, and then record the report which is broadcast on WTIP.

Every week students from all the schools in Cook County report School News.

We who live on the North Shore and in the North Woods have a lot to be thankful for even during times of economic and other turmoil. The students in Lorelei Livingston's third grade class at Sawtooth Mountain Elementary School understand being thankful. What follows is a selection of the poems that were written by students to reflect their gratitude. Thanks to Ms. Livingston and her class for sharing their special thoughts with all of us.
