Mrs. Bartlett Reinforces That East Hanover is a Caring Community

#WeAreEH video Mrs. Bartlett and Ms. Hart did together! Credits: Mrs. Natalee Bartlett and Ms. Kelly Hart

EAST HANOVER, N.J. - At the Aug. 25 Board of Education meeting for East Hanover, superintendent, Mrs. Natalee Bartlett, debuted a video “to show the culture and climate of the district”. The video is a little over four minutes long showcasing everyone from town officials, DPW workers, the police and fire department, staff and students from East Hanover schools and the Mayor, Joseph Panullo, dancing and singing along, while waving a #WeAreEH sign.

The point of the video was “to showcase the schools are the center of this caring community”. Bartlett continued saying, “I came up with the idea to showcase our hashtag while displaying our enthusiasm for our schools. In this town it does take a village to raise a child and we are that village.”

The song used was Justin Timberlake’s “Can’t Stop The Feeling”. Bartlett stated it’s “an infectious feel good song”.

However, in the middle of the video the music stops and Metallica’s “Enter Sandman” plays while eighth-grade social studies teacher, Mr. Michael Colasurdo and physical education teacher, Mr. Greg Gruzdis head-bang along with the song. According to Bartlett, “they wanted to deviate from the norm,” but it was also “the perfect comic relief” as Ms. Barone, an eighth-grade team leader and well-respected teacher throughout the district, scolded them for singing and dancing along to the wrong song.

Mrs. Bartlett saw similar videos done in different districts and figured it would be the perfect project for them to do. She went to Ms. Kelly Hart, Supervisor of Technology, with the idea and within two weeks the video was made. Both Bartlett and Hart ran around town asking people to dance and hold the #WeAreEH sign.

Bartlett stated, “Everyone was so full of energy and so willing to participate. It was an amazing project to create. We’ve had such an overwhelming response, I know there will be more to come.”
