Posted September 29, 2015

Call it “Throwback Tuesday” or “LipDub Review” but today seems like a good day for our school community to enjoy another glimpse of our Anti-Bullying LipDub produced by the fourth grade Class of 2015. Set to Katie Perry’s song, “Firework,” this video fairly crackles with the hard work put in by Erika Bushey and her fourth grade students. As we wrap up the first month of another school year, the video reminds us of how our Power of Nice Anti-Bullying program allows Shaker Road to be a bully-free zone and encourages our students to use their creative talents to share that message. video
