JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) -

Sixth graders at Jonesboro Math and Science Magnet School launched their very own newscast Friday morning. 

At the beginning of the school year, the kids got to audition to take part. 

From there, Instructor of Technology Kylene Lichucki and Arkansas State University's Dr. Mary Jackson-Pitts worked with the kids on how to conduct interviews, editing and putting together the pieces the kids did on people at the school.

They debuted the first "Real Time Math and Science" newscast to the entire school. 

Afterward, the news team enjoyed some refreshments and got to ask questions from the Region 8 News team, and managers who were on-hand for the launch. 

The Region 8 News team would like to congratulate Logan B., Faith, Jackie, Logan O., Teyamarra, Destiny, Brenda, Ashanti, and Anny on a job well done and we look forward to working with all of you over the coming years.

Congratulations again on a job well done team!
