#BetterTogether: Class Act with Chris Wragge celebrates the wins at Cresskill Middle and High Schoolget the free app
NEW YORK -- Today's Class Act with Chris Wragge is celebrating the students at Cresskill Middle and High School in Cresskill, New Jersey.
Just as the school was about to reopen after COVID, it was badly flooded by Tropical Storm Ida.
Now after two and a half years, students are back in a new and improved building.
Check out the highlights from our morning below.
Nothing beats being back in person
Whether dancing for a fundraiser or performing on stage, the faculty and students tell us they're thrilled to be together again.
What a small world
While Chris Wragge was working on this story, he got a call from an old friend whose daughter is a senior at the school.
Seniors grateful to be back for final year
Despite the difficulties they faced over the past few years, seniors say they're excited to be back with their classmates and teammates before wrapping up high school and heading on to college.
Dancing their way back to normal
The kids were remote for two and a half years, but now they're thriving. The basketball team won a sectional title, and students are back together again learning, laughing -- and dancing.
Behind-the-scenes bright and early
"Celebrate the wins"
Principal John Massaro tells Wragge about what it was like to see the school under water just days before it was set to welcome students back, and what it meant to have the community come together to rebuild.
