Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) - Fargo's got its own pop-stars in the making and it's coming out of a 2nd grade classroom at Hawthorne Elementary.
That's where Mrs. Bombenger's 2nd graders rock out to a song by pop-artist Pink, but with their own lyrics.
Their song is called "community," and it's to the tune of Pink's Just Give Me a Reason.
Bombenger says she uses music in a lot of her lessons and with Pink's concert right around the corner, this is the perfect way to put some song and dance into learning.
Cheyl Bombenger/Hawthorne 2nd Grade Teacher: “in addition to learning knowledge, I always tell them they're putting knowledge in their knowledge banks and every time they sing a song and write about a song, they gain more knowledge to put into their knowledge bank.”
Pink's Truth About Love tour hits the stage at the Fargodome this Saturday.
