Northeastern Middle School held its annual academic prep rally for the seventh and eighth grade students on Monday, March 14, 2011, to honor students with high grades and good attendance and behavior records, and to help students blow off some steam on the day before the school will administer the Pennsylvania System of School Assessment test.
