This year, the gathering also launched the school’s Day of Service. Following the flagpole ceremony, students heard from a variety of speakers and participated in meaningful service activities all across campus. The theme of the day is Sung, Unsung and Future Heroes/Sheroes and students learned about heroic stories from this important time in history.
