Searsport — Students and staff members at Searsport District Middle School and High School kicked off the academic year with a series of activities promoting trust and acceptance.

Viking Rally Day was planned last year by student council members, Principal Marianne DeRaps, teacher Kristin Tripp and two Tanglewood facilitators — Ian Collins and Hannah Raymond.

Students were grouped together and participated in a variety of activities over the course of the day, which included two keynote speakers and a barbecue lunch.

In addition to promoting trust and acceptance, the Viking Rally Day also served to establish stronger connections between staff and students.
