Mrs. Gammons talked to the students about Criminal Law, Constitutional Law, and the importance of working hard to achieve your goals!

Our students will pick a few of the best songs and will mix them for you, free of change, as part of their final project. In return, please give Allegro credit when credit is due and consider employing the student who mixed your song for future projects. Please help us expand this program and give back to the community.
