"GOOD MORNING, EYE OPENER!"
Today WCVB 5 visited Worcester Public Schools and filmed students introducing their Eye Opener morning news. The segments were about 20 seconds long and will air in November. Students said their school names and something unique about their schools and ended their statements with "Good Morning, Eye Opener!" Our very own Ch. 11 caught up with Principal Jessica Boss at Chandler Elementary to ask her about the experience.

Our 20 second segments will air on these dates at 5:10am and 6:10am. We hope you check it out and we thank WCVB for giving our students the chance to appear on their news show!
