Starting Monday, all students will be allowed to enter the former Senior Courtyard. “God calls us to be loving and open to growth....
DISCLAIMER: THE STUDENTS AND FACULTY INVOLVED IN THIS RAP BATTLE COMPETED FOR FUN AND ENTERTAINMENT. NOTHING SAID WAS OF SERIOUS VERBAL ABUSE      Hyped students flood into the theater, buzzing about a "rap battle" they heard about throughout the hallways during the week.
