I had a blast with this, as always.  Take two Capital Region schools.  Add some very creative elementary school teachers and students.  Put them together and what have you got?  A collaborative song to welcome spring!

Special thanks up front to teachers Amy Utter, Kris Gentile and Ruth Piperat from Holy Spirit in East Greenbush and Jeanne Davies with Bianca Malta (I love how that rhymes) from Eagle Elementary School in Delmar

This couldn't have possibly worked out better .  I was originally going to do this with 4 schools, but the song came out so well that I didn't think you could possibly improve upon it.  These kids brainstormed ALL of the content here and honestly wrote the bulk of this (and they ranged from kindergarteners to second graders!)

A REAL challenging part was taking all of this video, adding instruments after the fact, and getting it all to sync up, but it worked!!  Very special thanks to all of the Apple products that helped make this all possible (iPhone for video and Macbook Pro for editing!)   And now- we proudly present the "Bring On The Spring" Mega Song!  Enjoy, and please leave your comments and tell these kids how well they did.
