Today we had a full house for our free performance of "Keep Cool! a play about climate change"! Flo, the front of house lady, said she'd never seen an audience of kids so engaged. That was our last day of filming "Keep Cool!" for TV. Can't wait to see what magic Sean, our DOP (that's Director of Photography, aka camera guy and editor) will do.

Getting used to this whole YouTube thing. Check out the right hand side of the page for our new Video Bar, where you can watch all our YouTube videos. New today are clips from last Friday's very last school show of the year! Sara Holt and Ian Gschwind have performed 200 plays this year (if I'm counting right!). In the backstage sneak peak, you can see how tired they are. But in front of the kids, it's magic as usual.

It's official - Blundell Elementary School in Richmond, BC, has won DreamRider's climate change pledge contest. They had the highest percentage of responses to our online contest, where Metro Vancouver kids pledge to take action to remove more then 10,000 tonnes of greenhouse gases. Way to go, kids!
Blundell wins $1,000 towards arts programs. Don Dixon, Principal, says the kids have decided to spend the money on a hip hop program for all grades in the fall. Yeah!
