My elementary principal unexpectedly changed his retirement date to December 1st. Looking for an appropriate but easy-to-learn song to have the K-5 sing in his honor on his last day.
So Long, Farewell from the Sound of Music!! You could personalize it with lines about the principal and how he will enjoy his retirement, think of you all still trudging along!! And instead of the German “auf widersein” (spelling is awful) you might have the kids sing “we hate to say goodbye” So the refrain would be changed to “So long, farewell, we hate to say goodbye!” Then give kids or small groups of kids short solos with each line.
An Irish Blessing is always a beautiful song. Music K8 magazine has a great arrangement of it!
