The staff at ABBOTT ELEMENTARY are trying to save their school from the clutches of becoming a charter school. This has been the writing on the wall this entire season. Luckily, they have Janine (Quinta Brunson), who believes in the community spirit to speak up and make a difference. 

This fantastic episode made me want to stand up and cheer. So many activities and dialogues going on that let the viewers see the core of love for their school. It was priceless. From “a very Ava festival” to getting Jacob all wet, the ensemble was a force to be considered. The writers gave each actor a slice of brilliant moments to showcase who they are and how far they would go. Funny, sincere, and empowering. What more could anyone ask for in a mere 23-minute sitcom?

ABBOTT ELEMENTARY is having an outstanding season filled with meaningful situations that affect most schools in America today. This is especially true for poorer city areas. The writers are shining a light on meaningful current topics. Kudos to all involved in the creative endeavors at Abbott. Teachers will always make a difference in everyone’s lives. 

ABBOTT ELEMENTARY is available to stream on ABC.
