Third-graders at Mountain Island Lake Academy, an elementary-middle school in northwest Charlotte, have joined the roster of schools showing Super Bowl support with a video titled “We Will Win This.”
Teacher assistant Nathan Lampone rewrote Queen’s classic “We Will Rock You” to celebrate the Carolina Panthers, with lyrics such as this tribute to quarterback Cam Newton: “You got charm, you got grace / A smile on your face / Doing that dab all over the place.”
Parents familiar with the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools solution to school crowding will especially appreciate the ending, in which mobs of kids charge toward a mobile classroom.
