Chanute Elementary Principal Eric Hoops received a surprise email to help him celebrate his birthday Sept. 2.
“Thank you Mr. Hoops and all of our administrative team for continuing to seek answers to our 525,600 questions,” wrote Mendy Burnett, music teacher at the school.
Being a music teacher, it was only natural that Burnett would find a musical way to convey to the elementary principal how much the staff appreciate what he’s done over the years and especially this fall as teachers, staff and administrators worked to find ways to teach in school and to students at home during this pandemic. She knew just what song to use and convinced her husband Lance, music teacher at Royster Middle School, to help rewrite the lyrics.
