This afternoon the high school "Fling" assembly engaged over 1,100 students in a display of an exceptional level of celebration.  A very moving rendition of our National Anthem was sung by one of our senior class members.  As the young man came to the center of the gym, all 1,100 students and staff fell silent, placed their hands over their hearts, and paid respect to our country.  Opening remarks by the principal referenced next week's MME testing and a request to get plenty of rest and show your best during the testing week.  Assembly events, prepared and implemented by the student council, raised the level of energy and excitement.
