We were "flocked" today by Cancer Patient Services! One of our VB students asked for his birthday to "flock" the school with flamingos in honor of all those who have fought a cancer diagnosis. He especially wanted to celebrate Mrs. Obenour and honor his grandma, who was recently diagnosed. What a fantastic way to also kick off October being Breast Cancer Awareness Month! #BeABlackKnight
