Virtual Weather Assembly:

I can connect with Zoom or other tele-platforms. The students are interacting with me “live” which is what makes this assembly so awesome. The teacher, principal and or IT person is in control with me on the other end. My green screen studio is setup and the students get to see the magic of how TV weather gets done. Age appropriate weather curriculum is presented in a highly dynamic fashion. They can ask questions, etc.

Weather Assembly Brings Education and Fun to BH Students

Submitted by Victoria Baum

Students at Thomas P. Hughes and William Woodruff Schools were treated to a virtual assembly entitled ‘John’s Weather Tour’. While the weather may be warming up, the assembly sure was cool!

Meteorologist John Marshall ‘visited’ the students via Zoom and gave presentations about different types of weather, explained the tools meteorologists use to predict weather, answered questions, and demonstrated green screen technology used in his broadcasts.

Woodruff Principal Patricia Gasparini shared, “We were thrilled to have weatherman John Marshall do the program he had scheduled for March. We had selected the program to complement the morning weather announcements done by our fifth graders daily. The two programs done for the grade levels were extremely informative, interactive, and highly engaging. John’s personality, passion for reporting, and enthusiasm was felt by all. Much gratitude goes out to our PTO for supporting this program that brought us all together as a community.”

Hughes Principal Jessica Nardi added, “This assembly was a great “feel good” experience for our students and their families! Thanks to Mr. Marshall’s planning and the support of our district technology department, the students were able to ask/answer questions and interact with Mr. Marshall throughout the presentation. Our whole school community enjoyed this break immensely. A huge ‘thank you’ to Mr. Marshall and the PTO for supporting us and bringing smiles to our kids.”

John Marshall has been on television for over 20 years and his accurate forecasts have been seen by millions in the New York tri-state area. John is currently freelancing for CBS2 in New York City.

These incredible assemblies were made possible thanks to the creativity and generosity of the Hughes and Woodruff PTO organizations.
