Underdogs Update

McGrath Elementary School, the school we're currently profiling in our documentary, "Underdogs" is a recipient of the National Blue Ribbon Award. They are one of only 4 schools in LA County to receive this award, with only 256 public schools, nationally, being recognized.

On Friday, Ramon filmed the announcement at the school, and the school will be recognized in Washington D.C. in November.

We're so proud of the students, teachers, staff and leadership of McGrath Elementary School for another successful school year last year (e.g. the 6th grade students improved their Math test scores by 25%), and we know this school year their hardwork will continue with even greater success.

You can see a featurette and teaser trailer for the film at http://vimeo.com/20115070 and http://vimeo.com/16123214, on youtube at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rdJ8iDLw8lY or on our website http://thinktenmediagroup.com/underdogs.htm.
