“No more pencils

No more books

No more teacher’s

Dirty Looks!”

My grandfather, never realizing I would become a middle school teacher, used to call me on the last day of school each year and “sing” me this old rhyme. It was a wonderful tradition, which would be followed by a conversation reflecting upon the past school year and the plans for the summer.

Well, it’s that time of year–school is ending and a summer of possibilities is ahead. (Though I am still searching for the 104 days that Phineas and Ferb keep promising!)

As you go through your school box and reflect on the school year, we want to highlight the amazing school projects the young members of the WDW Radio family have produced that relate to Disney magic.  Did you do a book report on Walt Disney?  How about a science project on the science behind a Disney ride?  Did you re-create an art project in honor of a beloved Disney character?

We want to hear about it!  To celebrate the Disney spirit in school, please send us a picture of your project and brief description of how Disney helped you to learn this year.  All students must have a parent permission to submit your entry.  We will feature your work in a future blog.  AND… all students who submit a project will receive a special token of appreciation from WDW Radio.

Please send all entries to Christy@WDWRadio.com by June 15, 2012.

Thanks, my young friends and fellow Disney fans.  And enjoy those days of summer vacation–even if you don’t have 104 of them, make the most of each one you have!

    Okay, so I am a complete sap and actually teared up when I read this. Could another school year really be nearing an end? My daughter is off to high school and my son entering 6th grade. They will be in separate schools for the first time since my son entered kindergarten!! Both are heavily influenced by Disney and I’m so glad that they’ll have a chance to share a piece of schoolwork with others who appreciate their passion. I look forward to seeing how all the young Disney fans … perhaps future imagineers or castmembers … were able to incorporate Disney into their learning. Could there be any better inspiration?!

    This is a great idea! As a high school student, Disney has greatly impacted my life, but I was wondering, does the project have to be from this past school year? I was disappointed when I realized that the opportunity never presented itself this year for me to do a Disney inspired project, but I have done at least one or two every year before this. Would it be alright if I used a project from a past year?

    Hi, Lizzie!! We’d love to share Disney work from a previous year–it doesn’t have to be this school year. We just want to celebrate how Disney can affect us in school, too! 8:)
