Let There be Peace on Earth: A Holiday Project

Above video courtesty WAAY Channel 31.

Recently, our third graders were videotaped by WAAY-TV 31 as part of the tv station’s holiday project. WAAY-TV reached out to area elementary and middle school music teachers for assistance with this project, and asked them to teach their students the beautiful and iconic song, “Let There Be Peace On Earth.” Our music teacher, Mrs. Marquez chose to teach the song to our third graders and they sang so beautifully for the cameras! They only had a few music class periods to learn it! We can’t wait for you to hear and see the final product! We are so proud of these students!

The song from each group was edited together to create 2, 90-second promotional campaigns featuring different represented schools in each one and Grammy winning Country artist, Lee Greenwood! This campaign began airing on WAAY-31(like a commercial!) as a “message of hope” on Thanksgiving Day and will run through early January, 2022, so be watching for it! You can also find it on WAAY-TV’s Facebook page and their website!
