Video Collaboration!


We are excited to announce a project for the kids! We are looking for students to submit short video clips telling us why they love their teachers!

Submissions can be made here:

Some tips before filming: 

Make sure you have all of the following to have your video selected: 

Get a parent or guardian's permission. 
Show your face clearly. 
Use great Lighting (maybe face a nice sunny window!).
Only one student per video clip.

Also make sure: 
There are no loud background noises. 
Your video is no more than 30 seconds long.

AND THE MOST IMPORTANT: 
Hold your phone sideways instead of up and down, we need a long video, not a tall video. 

We look forward to your awesome videos!!
