A fun idea that was brought up this week... have the kids perform snippets of "Waiving Thru a Window" from Dear Evan Hansen. Pru will assemble them and create a montage. https://drive.google.com/.../15RA7vUOpuzwUW... Here's how this can work: There's a signup document, the sheet music, a link to the karaoke version. On the document, there are slots for 5 people to do for each section. The kids can upload their files to this drive. Label their files with their name and section #. Once we have enough, we'll assemble. Pick one section, pick many... makes no mind. There are plenty to go around! Post this where you think it will get the most traction. Share with everyone! Let's shoot for next week to get all the parts in!
