Dream Big - Virtually!

Dream Big - Virtually!

Last week, lower school released their very first virtual grade level program, Dream Big - What I Want to be When I Grow Up! Our fabulous team of faculty and staff put together a one-of-a-kind video program that was sent to parents, grandparents and special friends Thursday morning, October 22. 

Head of School Dr. Don Davis introduced the virtual program by sharing his thanks for our faculty and staff for keeping our students learning and thriving both on campus and at home. He reminded us that “we can overcome anything if we do it together” as a cord of three strands - you, me and God. He adds, “First graders live out our mission and pursue big dreams for the future.”

Following the encouraging introduction from Dr. Davis, our students took over and ran the show! SBS first graders were well-prepared and articulate; while acting their parts, they appeared all grown up. Even from a young age, our students are learning to lead courageously, performing and directing their own show. Following tradition, each student dressed up to reflect his or her dream career, with everything from veterinarians to baseball players. Even our virtual students dressed up at home and participated with their own video clips. Through the song performance of “God Has a Plan for Me,” students demonstrated their understanding of trusting God with their dreams; He has a plan for their lives!

After weeks of preparation, first graders enjoyed a viewing party complete with lunch from Chick-fil-A thanks to the SBS Office of Advancement. It was a special treat for our students to see themselves performing on video. 

Head of Lower School Evette Haberman shared, “Showcasing the Class of 2032 and their amazing teachers made for a wonderful celebration!” Walking together, we are finding new and creative ways to continue old traditions. Thanks for inspiring us to dream big, first grade!
