LEXINGTON, Ky. (WTVQ) – While students continue learning at home, many teachers continue to go above and beyond. In Lexington, students at Southern Elementary wanted to honor their teacher Judi Reynolds.

The students were set to perform a musical called ‘Bare Necessities’ before the COVID-19 pandemic. Despite no in-person performances, Reynolds was able to make sure the students still got to perform their musical virtually.

Tara Lee Waters shared a video on Facebook that said in part, “Southern Elementary was supposed to knock out socks off again last week with their production of the Jungle Book Kids. Instead they each recorded themselves singing (& some of them dancing) ‘The Bare Necessities’ to create this awesome snapshot of what a great show they were working on.”

Waters says the kids range from 3rd through 5th grade.

Southern Elementary was supposed to knock out socks off again last week with their production of the Jungle Book Kids. Instead they each recorded themselves singing (& some of them dancing) “The Bare Necessities” to create this awesome snapshot of what a great show they were working on. These kids are phenomenally talented. 3rd through 5th grade. Alex is top left, 2nd from the end. His last production for elementary school.
