My school did that too.  As a matter of fact, when our "grade" was gathered
in the "all-purpose room" at my elementary school during the late 1960's,
we sometimes had to wait for the program to begin.  While we waited, there
was nothing on the TV but a slide that said something like "Massachusetts
Educational Television"; I would assume this time would now be filled with
underwriting announcements.
