The first day of school is awesome!

Schoolkids are back in classes this morning at D.C. public and charter schools. To get everyone in that back-to-school mood, here’s the students of Fairlawn’s Benjamin Orr Elementary telling us just how awesome their school is.

“Our School is Awesome” is a collaboration between local video production outfit Sun Chase Media and Orr administrators and students, who showed up in uniform on Saturdays to shoot the film earlier this year, said Principal Michelle Edwards. “It’s helping to build their confidence,” she said. “Anything they can do, we do it.”

And no doubt “school is awesome” is a more positive message for the kiddos than chowing down on “Hot Cheetos and Takis.”
