How long does it take for about 900 sweaty students to form the letters “T” and “K” on a football field? About 15 minutes.
But If you watch it in the time-lapse video created by Jerry Robinson, the digital media teacher at the high school, it takes about 20 seconds and comes with a guarantee of a smile, it’s so silly.
Ray Rickert, Thornapple Kellogg High School’s marching band director and music teacher, directed the student body to create the letters on the first day of school, which was a nice, balmy 84 degrees.
Shooting the picture came from Tony Petersen, high school principal, and was part of the kick-off of the school’s new PBIS (positive behavioral interventions and supports). It also was created as a thank-you to the community from the staff and students of the high school for supporting the school and approving a bond that helped pay for stadium and track improvements, he said.
