    How One Facebook Page Will Make You Fall In Love With School Again

    Now that the end of school is around the corner for my 2nd and 4th grade daughters, I realized that there is something that I will miss terribly this summer – their school’s Facebook updates. Here are 10 posts that made me just fall in love with school again.

    1. Must See Infamous Cinder Block & Sledge Hammer Experiment / Via

    Watch Physics Teacher Mr. Winter school 6th grade students on inertia and mass in a way they'll likely never forget (don't worry... Mr. Winter is still alive and well).

    2. One English Teacher’s Tribute to David Bowie and Alan Rickman / Via Facebook: BINSBK

    Mr. Griffin is a graphic novelist, and he put his skills to use to get the kids to honor two great artists who are sorely missed.

    3. 4th Grader’s Epic Basketball Stunt

    You, too, will watch this a couple of times in utter disbelief.

    4. Deep Thoughts: English Teacher Mr. D’Amato on National Poetry Day

    Hot Air Balloon

    UFOs are like

    hot air balloons.

    “this world is


    by cars”.

    5. Confirmation Whip Nae Nae is the New Macarena

    The Whip Nae Nae cannot be stopped either.

    6. Love This Teacher Who Wore A Space Helmet for Spirit Week’s Crazy Hat Day / Via Facebook: BINSBK

    Everyone had a few great, quirky teachers from middle school and high school, but Mr. Thacker had the guts to don a space helmet all day.

    7. Fan Mail from Batgirl to Her English Teacher / Via Facebook: BINSBK

    8. What Drives One Music Teacher to Teach / Via Facebook: BINSBK

    9. Phases of the Moon – Oreo Style / Via Facebook: BINSBK

    A fun AND yummy way to learn.

    10. Massive Popsicle Stick Bridge / Via Facebook: BINSBK

    We all made popsicle stick structures at one point in school, but this bridge puts my 2nd grade popsicle frame to shame.

    Now I want to go back to school!

    Thank you to the talented, wonderful Alexandra Hancock and her team from BASIS Independent Brooklyn ( for being the creative force behind such "fly-on-the-wall" posts that rise above the regular updates parents expect. She helped many busy, working parents feel connected and a sense of community with the school. She also helped make conversations around the dinner table much more interesting.
