With classrooms empty during COVID-19, staff at Enderby’s M.V. Beattie Elementary are free to let their musical talents shine.

Principal Gene Doray shared a video of staff performing a musical mashup of Build Me Up Buttercup, the 1968 hit from British soul band The Foundations.

“I’m proud to share with you the truly amazing, awe-inspiring, jaw-dropping musical talents of our M.V. Beattie staff!” Doray said before leading into the sing-along.

Staff members can be seen singing from their homes, using hairbrush microphones and other creative props to create, proving fun can still be had while staying at home.
