Empty Halls (Music Video)

School is not the same in the summer. The hallways are relatively empty and the creative energy that students contribute is definitely missed. I think that's one reason why welcoming back our kids is so exciting.

Many of my elementary principal colleagues have been doing a really cool "Night Before School" activity for their students. The activity involves reading a bedtime story on Facebook that's live-streamed the evening before school starts. (I love everything about this idea!)

Admittedly, I have not figured out Facebook's live-streaming yet, and all I have to offer is this silly rap video. Rest assured, we'll be ready for the 1st day and we cannot wait for our #GWgreats to return.
