Then Tweeted by the school's tech coach and retweeted on the school’s Twitter account.
It was shared on the school Facebook page.
It was pinned on Pinterest
And exploded in the papers!
The ability to come together to bring so much joy and happiness filled the school community and staff with excitement. The feeling of pride was contagious and others wanted to be a part of it. Parents from near and far started contacting the school to find out about sending their children there.
And that is the power of social media. It is the ability to take a short and wonderful moment in time and share it near and far with the world to make lives and make the community a better place for all.
