My students have been working hard to have their voices heard. Having met with Maria Shriver, via live video conference and having scheduled meetings with former White House Press Secretary Dee Dee Myers and the first female high school football coach in the nation, Natalie Randolph, they thought they would take a different approach to gain the attention of Ellen DeGeneres. 

One student wrote an incredible song, a phenomenal drama teacher put the students' ideas into a video and one very accommodating principal worked with the students to make this a reality. We hope you enjoy it and that you would consider posting it in other forums. The first 2 1/2 minutes tells the "story" and the last half has the song. I believe it is worth a full viewing. Since I am technologically challenged, I hope you will copy and past the link below.  Also if you have a Twitter account and re-tweet it, my students would appreciate your support of their efforts. Enjoy!
