PAW PAW, Mich. — Like Santa on Christmas, the north wind brought not only freezing temperatures but the gift of snow days for West Michigan children.
Many principals and superintendents across the state were the bearers of snow-day gifts and many kept up the spirit by singing - because school was closed, and even because they were tiring of the snow.
Later Elementary School Principal Jeremy Davison did a parody of Panic! At the Disco’s “The Greatest Show” and turned it into “When Will the Snow Days End.”
Davison isn’t the only principal to get in on the snow-day singing fun. Swartz Creek Community Schools Superintendent Ben Mainka and Swartz Creek High School Principal Jim Kitchen shared their rendition of Leonard Cohen’s “Hallelujah” with a snow-day twist.
New Buffalo Elementary School Principal Adam Bowen announced the school closing with his rendition of OutKast's "Ms. Jackson."
In Elk Rapids Cherryland Middle School a couple singing snow days were announced. The latest being a rendition of Garth Brooks "Friends in Low Places."
Perhaps "Baby Shark" was a bit too far.
Coldwater's Legg Middle School staff got into the snow-day spirit with their snow-day version of Neil Diamond's "Sweet Caroline."
Even the kids were singing thanks for the snow days. Navene from Washington Street Elementary in Otsego did a rendition of Simon and Garfunkle's "The Sound of Silence."
Many schools canceled class for Thursday, Jan 31, 2019, as well. Check WWMT.com closings for an updated list.
