Head of School's Snow Day Video Message

Wow, 2 million views for this headmaster's "School Is Closed" video on YouTube. A parody of Disney's "Let It Go" from "Frozen," the song is catchy and has attracted lots of attention. Time magazine tweeted the video, which could explain its popularity. 


A graduate of Moses Brown school, a 231-year-old Quaker school, Matt Glendinning has two young girls who affirmed the video. According to Glendinning, "They love it. That actually was my first big litmus test. After it was done, my 8-year-old said, 'That is awesome.' So I thought, 'OK, we're cool. We're going to be alright.'"

Discussion Starters:

  • What risks did Glendinning take when making this video? 
  • Do you find it funny, endearing, goofy, all of the above, none of the above, or something else?
