While sophomores and juniors at East Rockaway Junior-Senior High School were busy taking the Preliminary SAT on Oct. 19, seniors and students in grades 7-9 celebrated National Unity Day.
Participating students viewed “We Are Marshall,” an inspiring, based-on-fact historical drama. Following the film, they divided into small groups, where peer leaders discussed the film’s themes and their connections to teenagers’ lives. The overall focus of the film was on how tragedy can bring about unity and perseverance.
