“Every drop of water counts, water counts, water counts.
Every drop of water counts, conserve it every way!” Imagine that catchy tune sung by exuberant middle school students then… played on band instruments! This was the finale of a short video submitted by Watkins Middle School, for the Fairchild Challenge due this month.
But they weren’t the only ones having fun teaching us to conserve water!
The Revolutionary Rappers, from Heritage Middle School, had some memorable lines in their submission as well. Picture this performance piece featuring a group of young female students with their ball caps…
“7 billion gallons of water wasted each day, right where you’re living in the U.S.A. …
TURN OFF THE FAUCETS, TURN OFF THE SINKS, TURN OFF ALL WATER, BEFORE YOU HAVE TO THINK”
Both schools had high marks from our judges for “Overall Impact”: memorable performance, passionate interpretation and profound message related to water conservation but we needed a clear winner and it was very close!
****Congratulations to our 1st place winners, the Revolutionary Rappers from Heritage MS, who edged out their competitor with 130 pts- just 5 more than Watkins M.S.’s 125 pts! ***
Thank you to the special teachers who recognize the need for STEAM activities for these talented (and ambitious) students. Great job!
**Save the Date- the Awards Celebration is scheduled for May 2nd here at Dawes!
