Students from the Arlington Middle School TV Enrichment program got the news that their PSA (Public Service Announcement) about optimism won the LPS Media PSA contest. They were congratulated by Mayor Rivera and the School Committee. Students with their teacher, Dave Lemay, were among 4 Lawrence middle schools to compete by creating an original PSA using the new skills and equipment they are working with in their TV studios this year. Congratulations, Gators for a great message! You can see the Arlington PSA in the LPS YouTube Channel.
