Miss Us When We’re Gone

It’s hard to believe that another year has passed by. The sixth grade students have walked out the door of our elementary school for the final time. Next year they’ll walk into the middle school for the next step of their educational journey. It’s been an incredible year of fun and learning with projects such as Genius Hour and the Cardboard Challenge. We’ve enjoyed our field trips to 5 Wits, the Museum of Science, the beach, and Blue Man Group. Sadly though, our year has come to a close.

We always like to try to wrap up the year with some kind of surprise and a way to leave a mark before we go. You may remember our flash mob that we did. That turned out to be a huge hit. Unfortunately, once you’ve pulled off a flash mob once, it’s impossible to do so again! So this year we decided to do something a little bit different.

One of the biggest songs of the year was the Cups Song (“When I’m Gone) by Anna Kendrick. This song was made popular in the movie Pitch Perfect where Anna Kendrick played the tune using only a plastic cup on stage while performing. The students loved doing this and the lyrics matched up perfectly with us leaving to head to another school. So, what you see above is a music video that we created as our final goodbye to our elementary school!

Thanks for a great year and have a wonderful summer!
