Farrell, a professional singer who graces outdoor stages and indoor venues throughout Greater Hartford, is known as “the singing principal.” She brings her singing everywhere in the school — to morning announcements, to lunch, to the hallways. They even dance.
“We sing a lot; we dance a lot,” Farrell said. “I think it just brings positive energy and joy.”
