School & Family Slideshow Music

For the past 17 years, I have created slideshows of images for school-wide assemblies (as well as for my family) that help create a positive culture and help us reflect on the many moments from the past few weeks/months. Finding newer music that shares a positive message and is appropriate for elementary school students can be a bit of a challenge so I have created this list of songs we have used.  I will continue to add to this list so if you have a great song that is newer and beyond the traditional slideshow music, please add it in the comments section below. These songs are in no particular order but I have separated them into slower and more upbeat tunes. Some have been hyperlinked so if you click on these, it will take you to the video.
