Songs have long been a part of learning at Roosevelt Primary. And as the school year came to a close, third graders at the school treated their parents to some catchy educational tunes at their graduation ceremony June 10.
One of the songs, “Michigan Kids,” is now stuck in the heads of You Tube viewers throughout the district thanks to a recording by parent Bradford Parks. The song is showing the world that Michigan kids are “good kids” and “great kids,” who come from a state with two peninsulas, four big bridges, and lots of shoreline.
When asked about the video, Parks said “I will say that 3rd grade graduation at Roosevelt was a great time, seeing how much the kids have grown and how much they learned. My daughter went to Roosevelt and is at the High School now, and it’s bittersweet thinking that now that my son is moving on to Coolidge, that I won’t be back there except for PTA and school events.
“The teachers and administration are a great team and I’m so glad they had this experience. I’m just glad that everything’s that’s been built there over the years will continue for the new K-3 kids as well, including the new cafeteria and A/C we passed with the school bond, which goes in this summer.”
See for yourself how Michigan kids can “give you a hand,” by watching the video below.
