"Sometimes the things that may or may not be true are the things a man needs to believe in the most. That people are basically good; that honor, courage, and virtue mean everything; that power and money, money and power mean nothing; that good always triumphs over evil; and I want you to remember this, that love... true love never dies. You remember that, boy. You remember that. Doesn't matter if it's true or not. You see, a man should believe in those things, because those are the things worth believing in." -Uncle Hub in Secondhand Lions.
"You are not special. You're not a beautiful and unique snowflake. You're the same decaying organic matter as everything else. We're all part of the same compost heap." -David McCullough Jr

Featuring Jacob, Alex & Colleen of the Class of 2015.
Academy at the Lakes Lower Division students perform in an end-of-school-year variety show. The Variety Show is a fun way for students to showcase their special talents in front of family, friends, and peers. The show included instrumental, vocal, dance, hula hoop and jump rope performances - and even a pet performance! An iMovie created by Ms. Nadow.
I had the eighth graders write motivational speeches, cut some of the best lines in their own words, and stitched them together in this inspiring and motivational YouTube video with iMovie. Check it out!
