Students in HTV produce a daily TV new show which is broadcast throughout the school each day about 3 minutes after school begins. Each broadcast last about 3 minutes. In the fall of each year, students have the option to apply to HTV. They must complete a written application and then sign up for an interview. After all students are interviewed, crews are chosen. 

Once students are chosen for HTV they will be required to come to school at 8:00 AM one day a week to prepare and film their news show. In addition, each member must attend a weekly planning meeting on each Friday at 8:15 AM.

There is no cost for participation in HTV, but each child must complete a contract which has to be signed by both the student and parent or guardian.
