"Write, Camera, Action - K-RUN" is a literacy club for 4th graders designed for writing, reporting, and broadcasting. Students choose to write stories based on interviews they conduct. They then work on writing and revising their stories. The stories are then filmed in the sound loft at Warrior Hall in front of a green screen. K-RUN is aired on Friday mornings in the elementary school.
