Teachers, students and members of the school Administration were joined by NY State Senator Kemp Hannon, who helped congratulate the students with a certificate ceremony with a pep-rally inspired theme. Afterwards, the students and 5th grade band members presented the adults with a Rap called "Read with It, Rock with It" and later challenged the teachers to a basketball tournament.
