After forming a chain through the hallways Tuesday morning Farmington students gathered on the football field for a school cheer.

A chain of students to tie a school together


Farmington High School students connected in a big way Tuesday morning -- literally. All 1,600-plus of them. Up and down the hallways, spilling out to the high school football field.

There they were -- a giant chain made of the 2009-10 student body. Lined up stairwells, around the perimeter of the second floor in the gymnasium. They were everywhere, all waiting for their two seconds of fame.
