@Rob, you can post them on YouTube (is there a Shorewood Schools channel yet?) and use the embed code, which will save bandwidth.

Hi Nancy, Yes we do have a channel and there is a work-around to the size and length limit so I'm hoping to have more posted this evening.

OK! I suggest you to put the URL for shorewoodschools.org in the first line or two of the description when posting on YouTube. If you use the pull-down menu, you can get the embed code and use that which, as I understand it, means that even though you have the screen shot on your site, the actual video is on Youtube, which saves on hosting space (if I'm wrong, someone please correct me!).
