Last Gathering: “Bohemian Rhapsody”

This morning the 8th grade choir sang an amazing rendition of “Bohemian Rhapsody” by Queen. It made me think about how we start the year with “Fall is Here, Ring the Bell.” “Rally points,” as they were called by our scheduling consultant, give us a sense of group identity, guide us through transitions or break up monotony, and help remind us that time is passing. After five years of gatherings at OES and three years prior to that at Bement, the ritual of coming together to start the day every morning with a song, announcements, and birthdays has been one of my favorites.
