“I can hear change humming
In its loudest, proudest song.
I don’t fear change coming,
And so I sing along.”

In this stirring, much-anticipated picture book by inaugural Youth Poet Laureate and activist Amanda Gorman, anything is possible when our voices join together. As a young girl leads a cast of characters on a musical journey, they learn that they have the power to make changes—big or small—in the world, in their communities, and in most importantly, in themselves.

During the month of February, Mrs. Carter read the incredible book by Amanda Gorman called "Change Sings" and students were challenged to be the change they want to see in the world.  The following pictures show our "brainstorming sessions" on things that our students can do to make their world a better place.
