THE BRONX - Students across the Bronx took part in a ?living history? lesson Tuesday as they watched the nation?s first African-American president take office.

At the School of Science & Applied Learning, teachers and principals say they worked day and night to make sure students had the best inauguration experience possible.

?They were very excited about the televisions in the classrooms - to actually be able to see the inauguration is something that's big for them,? says Venessa Singleton, the principal of the elementary school.

Students and parents arrived at the school early Tuesday morning, gathering around television sets. They then watched Barack Obama become the 44th president of the United States.
