"I am who I'm meant to be, this is me." The Greatest ShowmanThe final piece of Dr. Maestas' presentation. This remarkable performance by over 150 students concluded our Opening Day ceremony for staff. It was a powerful moment as these students performed flawlessly. They were asked to dress in whatever they were comfortable in because this moment was about THEM and who they are. Thank you to these students for this outstanding presentation! It will be one we talk about for many years. At minute 6:14 Dr. Maestas brings Mr. Caple, VPA Director, and our VPA staff to the stage to recognize their extraordinary efforts. The enthusiasm of these students is a direct result of the exemplary work by our VPA educators. THANK YOU to our Plymouth Public Schools Visual & Performing Arts for your passion and dedication to the students of Plymouth. #ThisIsMe

Over 150 students at a Plymouth, Massachusetts school performed an incredible rendition of “This Is Me” from 2017’s The Greatest Showman and we definitely couldn’t get to the end without crying ugly tears.
We’ve got goosebumps, seriously.
You can tell the kids have really poured themselves into the performance and I wish I could give a high five to the admin who helped put this together.
From the video caption:

Have a listen.
And then, if you’re not totally bawling, you should watch this behind the scenes version of the song where, at 4:07, Hugh Jackman’s reaction has us all weeping once more. (And then maybe go splash your face with cold water. It gets intense. 😉 )
