First grade remembers 9/11
The first grade classes remembered 9/11 by discussing the events that happened that day. The students were allowed to ask questions in order to satisfy their curiosity about that day. All the first graders then spent days learning the sign language movements to God Bless America. The students then gathered in the hallway with all the other first grade classes and they performed the motions to the song together. Many classrooms did special activities to honor the lives that were lost on that day. It is our hope that we can help our students to understand the historic importance of that day.
