Firework Fabulous–the MHS lip dub

21 Dec

On December 8, 2010, the students of Magnolia High School in Magnolia, Texas came together to create something truly special.  The students performed a lip dub to Katy Perry’s “Firework”.  Nearly all groups (athletic, academic, you name it) at the school were represented. 

The lip dub basically portrays the simple story of a new student entering Magnolia High, nervous on his first day.  He is welcomed to the school by all of the student groups (dancing around the school to “Firework”).  It creates a family atmosphere and the student is clearly at ease by the end of the video, assured that he’ll find  a place to belong.  It’s really neat.  Thanks, MHS, for inspiring us!

Here’s a great song you could show your classes when you start to discuss vertebrates:
