In the past, freshmen were involved with the walk-in, but the result was often demeaning to freshmen and an exercise in seniors' superiority over others. This year, the senior class's leaders, along with their teacher advisors, wanted to do something more positive. So the seniors entered without freshmen in tow. After circling the gym and starting to sit down, the seniors had a surprise -- a "flash mob." It began with one senior in the middle of the gym floor dancing to music. Soon, over half the senior class had joined him in the middle of the floor doing a 4-minute, fully-chereographed, dance to the song "Don't Stop Believing" (the "Glee" version).
It was one of the coolest things I have ever seen in a school assembly. Their display was a wonderful and positive way to kick off the school year. You guys and gals are showing you are definitely a class with class.
