More Than The 3Rs

Journalism Class Becomes Media Arts Production Team
December 21, 2020

CONROE, TEX. – This year has become one of the most exciting years at Conroe Adventist Academy (CAA) in Conroe, Tex., as Principal Michelle Battistone introduced a media production class as a new elective for the ninth and tenth grade classes. 

Never before have I seen a journalism class transformed into an exciting Media Arts program. It has been thrilling to assist the students as production coordinator.

Students personally create informative “Bible Verse” segments that air weekly and are heard globally. We are excited that they are providing a positive impact to our community as well as other countries such as Kenya.

CAA is leading others to Christ through school-produced programs with our various teams: High School News, Bible Verse and Prayer, Fun Facts and Photography.

All programs are shared on the school Facebook page, which streams on the school website at

Learning to create videos and audio shows is just one of a few of the exciting assignments the ninth and tenth grade media team completed.

One of December’s assignments was to produce an old-time Christmas radio show. Needing extra voices allowed other students to join the CAA media team. It is so rewarding to see the creativity and imagination of the students and teachers alike.

What a blessing to see that CAA places God first in all things.
