An Assembly to Remember
Posted 04/29/2016 09:00AM

Groton, MA -- A musical number that turned into an epic prom-posal, a parody video (featuring "The Running Man Challenge") from the student body president, an important reminder about school safety, and a special announcement from the Head of School were all part of what one faculty member termed "the best assembly in years."

To the tune of 2014 J.William Mees Visiting Scholar Lin-Manuel Miranda's "You'll Be Back" (from the acclaimed Broadway musical Hamilton), Head of School Dan Scheibe's announcement of a Head's Holiday (on Monday, May 2) brought down the house in the RMPAC as students realized they were in for a three-day weekend to start the last month of school.

Scheibe sang:
"Just relax
Laugh and play
There will…
Be no school on Monday.
Here at last,
Head’s Holiday.
La la la la la..."

Enjoy the video (and the Head's Holiday - community members, please check email for schedule updates, etc.):
