Shaker Road Students 'Roar' Against Bullying

Shaker Road Elementary School performed its first ever school-wide lip dub to Katy Perry’s song, “Roar." In one take, the entire school came together to celebrate school pride and to spread the message to stand up and “ROAR” if you’re being bullied. Fourth graders in Mrs. Bushey’s class wrote a letter proposing the idea to Principal Dollard and then presented it to the Student Life Committee after being inspired by Cypress Ranch High School’s Lip Dub video. They thought this was the perfect song to send our anti-bullying message. view videoPosted on February 25, 2014
