As the school year winds down it’s a ‘Happy’ day for Fort Mill school

Special to the Fort Mill TimesMay 19, 2014 

— Fort Mill Elementary students and staff gathered Friday for a special field day – the last one before the school divideswith the fall opening of Doby’s Bridge Elementary.

To kick off the celebration, teachers and students in each grade level dressed in shirts of different colors, in all the hues of a rainbow.

Then they gathered to pose for an aerial 2013-14 Fort Mill Elementary family photo, shot from a crane in the school courtyard.

After the photo, a flash mob of teachers holding balloons and posters that spelled out the words “Happy” and “Love” broke into dance to the tune of the Pharrell Williams song “Happy” as an end-of-year surprise for their students.

“We give you the gift of happy,” Principal Jeanette Black said.
