Marlinton Elementary School PSA “Attend School”

THE FOLLOWING PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT WAS PRODUCED AND PERFORMED BY THE MARLINTON ELEMENTARY SCHOOL STUDENT COUNCIL.

NARRATOR: “On one Thursday morning on the first day of school, Amanda woke her children up, but Eden was sick, and her sister Cameryn got her mother Amanda, and Amanda sang a song to Eden.”

AMANDA SINGS: “School, School, School is so cool so why don’t you go to School, School, School!”

EDEN: “I want to go to school now. Thanks Mom!”

AMANDA: “You can’t go to school because you are too sick and you will get more children sick.”

CAMERYN: “If sissy is sick then why do I have to go to school?”

AMANDA: “You have to go to school because you need a good education so you can get a job!”

CAMERYN: “Why do I have to get a job mom?”

AMANDA: “Students who attend school regularly are more likely to graduate and find good jobs. In fact, a high school graduate makes on average a million dollars more than a dropout over a lifetime.”

CAMERYN: “I do want a happy life so I guess going to school is important.”

AMANDA: “All right, let’s start heading to school.”

CAMERYN: “Okay.”

CHORAS: “Some absences are unavoidable. We understand that children will get sick and need to stay home occasionally. The important thing is to get your children to school as often as possible.”

CHORAS SINGS: “You don’t have to be lonely at School School dot com – hash tag not a real website”
