Get your groove on, let your hair down, and find your jam. It's time to prepare for the upcoming Lip Sync Mock Rock on Friday night, December 15th  Following the varsity basketball game students will take to the stage to display their Lip Sync skills in efforts to bring a little laughter and unity prior to break. Get a partner and perform a duet, go solo and bring down the house, of grab a group of friends and add some stylistic choreography. Either way, throw down, have some fun, and enjoy the opportunity to get a little crazy. The art of  Lip Syncing has made a mad comeback, thanks in large part to Jimmy Fallon, LL Cool J, and their talented featured guests-- We know getting on the shows might be difficult...so we came up with a solution..., give you a show of your own. For questions, details, and sign up, stop in and see Mr. Croley. (11/29 - 12/1)
