This is the very first school for the year, and they have definitely raised the bar high.  The kids from Menands Elementary School wanted to write a song about how bad it is to be a bully.  I was happy to help them along, but they didn't need much of that.

These kids came prepared to work.  In fact, under the expert teaching skills  of Ms. Trainor  (her name fits perfectly), the kids basically took the reigns themselves.  They can't stand bullying, and they are ready to share their feelings with you in song to the tune of "I Want Candy"

Wasn't that fantastic?
