Damn, this is one inspirational man. I literally just spent the past ten minutes transcribing this 3 minute video and giggling to myself. Enjoy!
“Alright now listen to me y’all, we’re number one in every single category. I’m talking about Spirit Week, yall. Now listen to me. Most grades, they would be satisfied with leading in every single category. But that’s not us! The class of 2014 is great, extraordinary, spectacular. We’re not happy with one day. So tomorrow, the day after that, the day after that AND the day after that, we’re bringing home the win too. I’m talking bout, we need to do whatever it takes to get to the next level. I HAVE A VISION THAT ON FRIDAY NIGHT WE’RE GOING TO BE GETTING AN EMAIL FROM MR. FOLLET SAYING THAT THE JUNIORS HAVE WON SPIRIT WEEK. That’s what I’m gunna get, that’s it, I have the vision, NOW WE JUST GOTTA LIVE IT. NOW WE JUST GOTTA MAKE THE VISION A REALITY. So listen to me, yall. Tomorrow, we need to call up everybody we got. Call up your friends, call up me, send an email, send a text, we need a twin day, find a twin tomorrow, find anyone you can. Bring in the canned goods. Check your mom’s closet. I know she’s got some tuna in there! Find the tuna, BRING IT IN, find the canned goods, BRING IT IN, talk to Chef Boyardee, GET THE CANNED GOODS IN. We need to do whatever it takes. So listen to me, the day after that. That’s Wednesday. *pause* I need you to dress up as a Disney character. I need you to be a Buzz Lightyear, a Star Wars character, something! Disney, anything. The participation today was good, 76%. I want 77 or more tomorrow, I was 78 or more the day after that. I want 100% on Thursday and 100% on Friday. We can’t be satisfied with one day, and we can’t worry about what other grades are doing, we just have continuously progress as an individual grade. We have to do whatever to takes, move one more step forward, every single day. Bring in the canned goods. Thursday, I need you to wear something wacky. I need you to wear socks on your head and hats on your feet! I need you to do something crazy. Wacky tacky! Google it! FIND IT! ASK ME! ASK MICHAEL! Do whatever it takes. CANNED GOODS. PENNIES!

FIND SOME PENNIES IN THE COUCH, SEARCH UNDER THE COUCH, SEARCH UNDER THE COUCH, SEARCH UNDER THE COUCH, *pause* SEARCH ABOVE THE COUCH. SEARCH EVERYWHERE. SEARCH IN THE MIDDLE OF THE COUCH. You’ve got some pennies, I know, BRING THEM IN. We need some dollars as well. Michael sent out a challenge, everyone bring in a dollar, let’s get some canned goods. Let’s get some Chef Boyardees. Let’s get some tuna. Let’s get WHATEVER WE NEED SO THAT WE CAN WIN SO THAT FRIDAY NIGHT, WE GET A MESSAGE FROM MR. FOLLET SAYING THAT, GUESS WHAT? THE JUNIORS HAVE WON SPIRIT WEEK. That’s what we expect. We live in greatness, we are greatness. Let’s show the rest of the world that we got this week. I’m happy with what we did, I’m happy with what we did today, but I’m not satisfied. Never satisfied with just one day. FIVE DAYS IN A ROW LET’S GET AFTER IT. Let’s go.”
