Positive culture and school spirit were the themes for this year’s Lip Dub at Clinton Rosette Middle School. On March 10, 2015, a CRMS faculty member carried a GoPro camera throughout the school to capture students, faculty and staff lip syncing over popular songs such as “All Star” by Smash Mouth and “Best Day Of My Life” by American Authors. School activity groups including the CRMS band, student council, history and Arabic club, as well as the dance club were among those represented in the lip dub. The video concluded with a student lip syncing positive rap about CRMS being a place for learning and where everybody belongs.
In 2015, Clinton Rosette performed its first lip dub. The footage was posted to YouTube and has received over 3,400 views to date. CRMS is confident in their work, and hopes that the number of views for the 2016 schoolwide lip dub will far exceed last year’s numbers.
The video will also be shown at 5th and 6th grade transition events to show new students the various clubs and student organizations that the school offers.
