    I know this may sound nuts, but I was thinking of having a classroom theme song this year, something that is positive and happy that I could play at different times during the year, when good things happen, when we achieve something, to be used as a celebration.

    If I could come up with a few choices I could let the class vote. Has anyone used a class theme song? I'm thinking a song on the radio, past or present, that they can identify with.

    Any suggestions?

    Thanks!

    I do not have any good songs for you, but I just wanted to tell you I think it's such a cute idea! Maybe there is a song that would go with your classroom theme if you have one, or with the school mascot.

    There is a great song by Destiny's Child from several years ago called, "Happy Face". My daughter and I used to listen to it every morning on her way to elementary school. :)

    Happy Face

    I woke up this morning, the sunshine was shining
    I put on my happy face
    I'm living, I'm able, I'm breathing, I'm grateful
    To put on my happy face

    Woke up and realized this world's not so bad after all
    Looked at it through a child's eyes, and I saw these beautiful
    Things that you never think about
    Like the ocean, moonlight, stars and clouds
    It's amazing how we don't appreciate our blessings
    There's plenty of people who don't like me
    But there's 10 times more who love me and I love myself
    Sometimes, it gets tough, it gets tough
    But I can't give up, can't give up
    Just take a deep breath, close my eyes
    Feel the love and give a smile

    I woke up this morning, the sunshine was shining
    I put on my happy face
    I'm living, I'm able, I'm breathing, I'm grateful
    To put on my happy face

    I woke up this morning, the sunshine was shining
    I put on my happy face
    I'm living, I'm able, I'm breathing, I'm grateful
    To put on my happy face

    It's me, I just wanna be happy
    Uh, just be happy, uh, just be happy
    Today is the day I am willing to say
    I will put all the past behind me, no more enemies
    Ready cause (ready cause)
    I'm living in this world (living in this world)
    I wanna make a change (wanna make a change)
    Gonna make a change (gonna make a change)
    Put on my happy face

    I woke up this morning, the sunshine was shining
    I put on my happy face
    I'm living, I'm able, I'm breathing, I'm grateful
    To put on my happy face

    I woke up this morning, the sunshine was shining
    I put on my happy face
    I'm living, I'm able, I'm breathing, I'm grateful
    To put on my happy face

    Everything's gonna be alright, everything's gonna be okay
    Everything's gonna be alright, everything's gonna be okay
    Gonna be alright, everything's gonna be alright
    Everything's gonna be alright, everything's gonna be okay
    Gonna be alright, everything's gonna be alright
    Everything's gonna be alright, everything's gonna be okay
    Gonna be alright, everything's gonna be alright
    Everything's gonna be alright, everything's gonna be okay

    I woke up this morning, the sunshine was shining
    I put on my happy face
    I'm living, I'm able, I'm breathing, I'm grateful
    To put on my happy face

    I woke up this morning, the sunshine was shining
    I put on my happy face
    I'm living, I'm able, I'm breathing, I'm grateful
    To put on my happy face

    I woke up this morning with a happy face
    I'm flying, I'm flying, I'm flying, I'm flying
    I'm flying, I'm flying, I'm flying, I'm flying
    I'm flying, I'm flying, I'm flying, I'm flying
    Flying, flying....
