Crossfield Librarian Welcomes Kindergarteners Back with YouTube Video
Crossfield Elementary school librarian Heather Baucum has gone full-on princess to welcome back kindergarteners to the school building. Rewriting lyrics to Disney’s Frozen “For the First Time in Forever,” she contributed to the excitement for return to school via a YouTube video. “We wanted to do something really special to welcome our kinders to the building since they had been put on hold in November,” she explained. “So we rewrote the lyrics, recorded the vocals in our closet, edited it in Audacity, then I ran around my building lip syncing myself.” Baucum says everything was done with FCPS equipment except for her personal phone. Baucum and her husband have been rewriting lyrics all year long to create music videos for Crossfield’s daily news program, sometimes using the school mascot, Scotty the Rocket.
