HOW COOL IS YOUR SCHOOL: Third Stop In Pitt County

More Video...

Heather King and Meteorologist Jim Howard joined students, teachers, and parents at the school for a live broadcast from 5-7 a.m.

The school showcased how they use music and creativity to make sure classroom lessons hit home for students.

During the morning, we heard from the chorus, learned the water cycle to the tune of "Cups," and even met Elvis!

Previous students and a local Girl Scouts troop showed off how they created their 5th grade garden area, bringing a plot of land near the school back to life after Hurricane Irene ripped across the city.

This is the third of a handful visits to schools in Eastern Carolina.

Congratulations Elmhurst Elementary School!
