One Day More, Teachers, Before the Students Come!


Para guru di West Des Moines Community School District, Ohio sedang rapat pleno membuka tahun ajaran. Rapat dibuka oleh Superintendent/Pengawas memberikan pidato pembukanya hingga kemudian mendadak di loudspeaker terdengar arpeggio yang sangat khas ini:

Flash mob ini hanya didukung 12 guru musik, sedang sisanya guru dari bidang studi lain yang kesemuanya dengan sukarela berlatih untuk mempersiapkan sajian ini di hadapan rekan-rekan guru mereka untuk membakar semangat mereka sebelum tahun ajaran baru dimulai. Sebuah parodi dari nomor “One Day More” dari drama musikal legendaris Les Miserables. I have to say it is brilliant! 😀

Lyrics:
One day more!
Another year and one more planning day.
As we start this road to the end of May;
These students who in spring were here
Will surely come to school this year.
One day more!
——–
I am not ready for today.
What shall I do once school has started?
——–
One day more.
——–
Tomorrow you’ll be halls away
Because the summer now has parted
——–
One more day all on my own.
——–
Do we know the common core?
——–
No more time for preparation.
——–
Will my lesson be a bore?
——–
I’ve run out of planning time.
——–
Please collaborate with me
——–
Soon the students will be here
——–
One more day before we start!
——–
Do I join her for PD?
——–
Learning targets bring you freedom!
——–
Shall I join their PLC?
——–
Common assessments shall be made
——–
Formative or summative?
——–
Will you come and plan with me?
——–
The time is now, the day is here!
——–
One day more!
——–
One more day to education,
We will help these students grow!
We’ll be ready for these schoolboys
We will teach what they don’t know!
——–
One day more!
——–
Watch ’em run around,
Catch ’em if they fall,
Making sure the classroom’s
Ready for them all,
Here’s a little crayon
There’s a little glue
Markers, pens, and pencils
They know what to do!
——–
One day to a new beginning

Raise the flag and say the pledge!

Every student will arrive

And I hope I will survive!

There’s a new world for the teaching

There’s a new world to be taught

Do you hear the school bells ring?
——–
All right,
I’ll join,
your PLC!
——–
One day more!
——–
I am not ready for today.
What shall I do once school has started?

We’ll become these student’s heroes
We will lead and they will go
We will build them a bright future,
We know things that they don’t know.

One more day all on my own!
——–
One day more!
——–
Tomorrow you’ll be halls away
Because the summer now has parted

One more day to education,
We will help these students grow!
We’ll be ready for these schoolboys

Watch ’em run around,
Catch ’em if they fall,
Making sure the classroom’s
Ready for them all,
Here’s a little crayon
There’s a little glue

——–
Tomorrow we’ll discover
What our God in Heaven has in store!
One more dawn
One more day
One day more!
