Glendaal Elementary students and staff part of lip dub 

May 12, 2011

The school's recent talent show featured a video developed by Mike "Mr. Mike" Feurstein and directed by teachers Maryanne Reidy and Leanna Leffler.

Principal Thomas Eagan said the video, which included all staff and students, was initially developed as a "Lip Dub" for the Talent Show and is filmed to the song "Firework" by Katy Perry. The video also qualified as a "school spirit activity" that is a requirement of the Fuel Up to Play 60 grant program.

"The students and staff had a ball doing this and it turned out great," said Eagan.
