Palatine High School faculty and staff celebrate "Commit to the Pirate" during this Flash Mob Dance during the Winter Sports Assembly December 3rd, 2010. It was a "flash mob" because the students had no idea that the teachers, administrators, and support staff were going to do this - complete surprise, not part of the scheduled agenda for the assembly. More and more came out until the gym floor was full by the majority of staff members. Thriller (Michael Jackson), Bad Romance remix (Lady Gaga), Single Ladies remix (Beyonce), Club Can't Handle Me (Flo Rida), Happiness (Alexis Jordan) and Dynamite (Taio Cruz). Thank you to Theresa Christensen for bringing this idea to PHS with her coordination and choreography, and to Lindsay Brown and Adrienne Stackwell for their dedicated assistance.
