RIVER HEBERT Making Angel laugh is top priority for her Grade 7 classmates at River Hebert District High, thats why they took it upon themselves to film a video for the cancer patient.
We were throwing ideas around and the Tech Ed teacher suggested the kids make a video, said Leslie Parliament-Taylor, the Grade 7 students English teacher.
But the students designed the entire thing.
Angel was diagnosed with cancer a week before the students finalized the video something they thought would help make Angels hospital stay a little easier. The video includes River Hebert Idol with all students auditioning, as well as Mission Impossible 4 where a student breaks out of detention on the search for some test answers.
Classmate Sarah Dobson says Angels a nice person someone everyone likes.
Shes funny and sometimes tells jokes, said Sarah.
Sarah and two other classmates, Eric Bjarnason and Michael LeBlanc, were chosen at random to edit the video the students spent two days creating.
When Mrs. Walsh came in and told us Angel had cancer, I was like, Wow. I knew she was sick but I didnt know she was that sick, Eric said while helping edit.
Angel is a nice girl and she kept to her own business.
Included in the video is an aerial shot of Angels classmates outside waving to her. The students hoped to end the video with the wave. They also spelled out Angel on the gymnasium floor with their bodies.
The students even raised a bit of money to buy a stuffed animal and balloons for her hospital room, said Parliament-Taylor.
By the end of the day Friday, Parliament-Taylor and the students were hoping to have the video fully edited with the help of Kathlene Jennings.
