Did you catch this year’s Teachers versus Students Lip Sync Battle?  These winner take all performances involved a microphone and a large group of uninhibited students and adults.

It was the second Annual Lip Sync Battle pitting teachers against students as a fundraiser for the senior class.  Whether it was old-school James Brown, Chuck Berry, and even Michael Jackson, or new school Pit-Bull, Chris Brown, Beyoncé or Taylor Swift our teachers and students left their modesty at the door and their energy on the stage floor. 

Senior Class Advisor Ms. Donna Langhorst-Zamow tells us that there were 10 teacher versus student "battles" and one overall winner. There were 24 teachers and administrators who participated and competed against 17 students.

Even though Dr. Bennardo made a big impression with his rendition of “Summer Wind,” apparently, Mr. Rogers and his daughter stole the show with the Disney classic "I See the Light.”

And speaking about seeing the light, thank you to the Lamplighters and the always-amazing Alex Dollin for that incredible sound system. It all helped us see and hear Mr. Graziano as he flew off the stage unexpectedly, only to pop up moments later declaring ‘I’m OK.”
