While most students were enjoying their Presidents’ Day weekend off by sleeping in on Friday morning, the Council Rock North Marching Band rose bright and early. Why? Well, the marching band prepared a treat for all the teachers in the Council Rock School District. On February 12, Council Rock teachers gathered in the North auditorium to start a day of workshops. Focusing on the concept of teamwork introduced by Superintendent Dr. Robert Fraser, the marching band decided to play the song “Lean on Me” as they marched into the auditorium. Needless to say, as the marching band blared out the famous tune, teachers became encouraged to unite with the empowerment of music. After a booming applause with standing ovations, it was evident that teachers understood that their efforts everyday do not go wasted.
Not only did the teachers become inspired to work together, but they also realized that their hard work and dedication to their students everyday create something as stunning as the marching band’s performance. The marching band was able to show its own united teamwork as well, a key trait needed for superior shows. The simple but bold message that “we all need someone to lean on” resonated in every note, and every clap enforced the united concept that we are the Council Rock School District and together, the best education provided by our superior teachers can empower bright students to do astounding things.
