The famous quote by author Hans Christian Andersen “Where words fail, music speaks” served as an inspirational backdrop when the Middle School welcomed musician Jared Campbell for an uplifting and thought-provoking assembly program. As an extension of the district’s character education program, Campbell’s performance was geared toward galvanizing students to think about their words and actions and encourage them to take a positive perspective on life through his combination of story-telling and original songs. “It was an inspiring assembly,” said Assistant Principal Daniel Ackerman, who welcomed students to the motivating event before sixth-grader Emily Murray introduced Campbell. “Mr. Campbell talked about reaching goals and how there are people in your life to help you along that path.”
