Flash Mob "One Day More" (Les Mis...with CC subtitles) - West Des Moines Schools - Welcome Back

While the West Des Moines Community School District Superintendent was beginning her speech to the staff of WDMCS at the district-wide welcome back meeting, the teachers of the district created a flash mob to the enjoyment of their unsuspecting colleagues. With only one more day of preparation left, the teachers shared their talents by performing a parody of the song, “One more day” from Les Miserables.

Many thanks to the teachers and staff members (only 12 are music teachers) who voluntarily came to school to rehearse in June and July to prepare for this performance!

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!
