WSMM Morning Show
Executive Director, Gay Knock (Coach Gay), works with the seventh grade class to present the morning show which is broadcast throughout the campus...and now the world! Students lead the morning prayer and pledge of allegiance, share weather and sports information, and recognize those who are on the prayer list, celebrating birthdays, or being recognized for special achievements at the school.
Please Join Us in the Morning
The WSMM Morning Show is live at 8:10 am, but can be viewed later on our You Tube Channel. The show is produced by our fabulous 7th graders. They host, direct, and operate the camera every Monday through Thursday morning.
We pray for our family and friends and say the Pledge of Allegiance together. We celebrate students' birthdays and recognize Students of the Month and other students who have received special awards. We also make announcements of upcoming SMM events, meetings and activities and give sports updates.
