Default Jon Visits Canadian Elementary School via Skype


Jon Visits Canadian Elementary School via Skype
Ana Rebolone Morrison is a huge Bon Jovi fan. It turns out her Grade 4/5 class at Ecole Agnes Davidson Elementary School has also developed a pretty strong bond with the band and its frontman, Jon Bon Jovi.

That love affair with one of rock’s biggest stars culminated in a Skype call...as Jon Bon Jovi dialed Rebolone Morrison’s class and chatted with students for a half an hour. He greeted each student by name, and spoke about the power a letter can have, as he held up just a few of the letters he received from the class.

“It’s given you the power to write letters to make a difference,” Bon Jovi told the students. “Remember this, because you never know who is going to read them.”

The student letters were part of an all-encompassing effort to bring Jon Bon Jovi to Agnes Davidson, which included a persuasive-writing project that had the class mail out four separate packages of letters, pictures and videos for Bon Jovi. The class also used social media such as Facebook, Instagram and Twitter to get the project noticed.

On Wednesday’s Skype call, students had the opportunity to ask questions, and one by one, students queried Bon Jovi about topics ranging from his Superman tattoo and his favourite song and favourite food, all the way to his charity endeavor – Soul Kitchen.

“It was their idea to write to Bon Jovi and we just kind of went with it, and the fact he read their letters and when he called, that’s who he talked to,” (Morrison) said. “That’s pretty awesome. That sends them the message they’re important and what they have to say is important.”
