So this lil idea kept nagging at me over the summer…
…and I’ve learned that when one of my creative visions keeps popping into my head, well, it means that I’m meant to make it happen! At the end of the school year/start of the summer, I kept seeing all these fabulous lip sync challenges that the police stations were doing across the country and they looked like so much fun. So I proposed the lip sync video idea to my awesome principal and she was all about making it happen, totally game & as supportive as could be!
In 3 very busy, short days, at the start of our school year when only the teachers had returned to school, I managed to get the footage of our superstar CMS faculty, staff & administration. Then my genius editor 12 yr old boy & I spent the weekend editing. Needless to say, I’m very blessed to have such a talented son that can edit for me and experience paid, professional editing gigs at such a young age. And, I am thrilled that it turned out so fabulously and totally excited about the thought of it bringing smiles to others!
What a great way to start the new school year! I just want to Feel This Moment and make this school year extraordinary!!!
A Special Note from my Principal at Chapin Middle School, Mrs. Anna Miller:
“We are so excited to welcome you to Chapin Middle School, Palmetto’s Finest, for the 18-19 school year! We don’t want you to merely survive middle school–we want you to thrive in middle school, to realize these can be some of the best years of your life, to live in the moment, to FEEL THIS MOMENT! Enjoy our superstar cast as we welcome you to our One Happy School through our lip sync video! It’s going to be our BEST year yet!”
I hope all my EveryWomanBlog.com readers enjoy this video and allow it to bring smiles to your faces! I know when we premiered the video at our beginning of the year pep rally assembly, the students absolutely loved it and it really helped to set a tone of fun and happiness! Here’s to feeling the moment! 🙂
