Roaring with Spirit- Spirit Week 2015

This year's Spirit Week had us "roaring" with our Daler Pride! Students enjoyed an assembly featuring high school athletes and performers who spoke about working hard. Wacky Wednesday and Crazy Hat Day were favorites! We are very proud to be part of SEM and Farmingdale.
