South Colby's Tunnel of Hope

I got a chance yesterday to film as Principal Brian Pickard led South Colby Elementary's (South Kitsap SD) 3rd Annual Tunnel of Hope on their first day of school, Sept. 3. The Tunnel is formed by a line-up of caring and supportive adults from the community who cheer on the kids as they arrive to start another great year of learning and success. There is high-fiving, knuckle bumping, music cranking, and rock star treatment for the K-6th graders. South Colby is a great model for an incredible way to start the new school year!

If you have another cool way of creating a culture for learning, we'd love to hear about it. Tweet it out using #AWSPLF1 and email David@awsp.org. Without further ado, here's the two-minute video. Dare you not to smile.
