The Fred Miller Weather Club is run by grade five students at the Fred W. Miller Elementary School in Holliston, Massachusetts. News and Weather broadcasts are produced in the Miller School Innovation Lab via our live weather station by Earth Networks Technology and green screen technology. All 5th grade students have an opportunity to participate. Our News and Weather Club would like to recognize Mr. Timothy Cornely for his 35 year career at Holliston Elementary Schools. Weather was a passion of Mr. Cornely's and we are thrilled that his weather station and broadcast lives on!
The Miller News and Weather Club, WKIDS, began in the fall of 2002. Miller School was the recipient of a grant which helped to fund the weather equipment currently installed on the roof of our school. Since then this program has been supported by teachers and enjoyed by many students!
