Constitution Celebration

This morning's chapel was filled by the sounds of Schoolhouse Rock, game show questions and new lyrics to a 90's rap hit.   What do these have to do with our nation's history?  Today we celebrated the 233rd year of the Constitution, and through a series of presentations by students in eighth grade and tenth, eleventh and twelfth grades, we were all reminded of the core tenets of American history.
The Preamble was sung in the mock-old fashioned way of Schoolhouse Rock.  Then everyone in attendance was challenged with trivia questions about the three branches of government; enthusiastic flag waving marked all correct answers.  The Bill of Rights rap served as an entertaining finale, and if your faithful blogger can figure out how ... we'll post the video here!
