You've Got a Friend: Video Clip on Youtube

This video clip is the culmination of two weeks of shooting across our campus, with videographer Mark Lowther (who is also a DCIS parent) putting dozens of students, staff and parents into the final production as they all sang the birthday track 'You've Got a Friend', a song originally written and recorded in 1972 by James Taylor, the same year that DCIS was founded.
