Well, we just finished our annual Constitution Week festivities. All week we learned about important events leading up to the founding of our country and some important US symbols. It was great fun and everyone learned so much. We ended the week with our Family Follies event. We had most families come and see the students present their projects, perform the Pledge of Allegiance in sign language, and a skit on the history of the Star Spangled Banner. Afterward, we enjoyed some patriotic snacks.
On Constitution Day, September 18, our class honored the signing of the Constitution at 1:00 by a Ringing of the Bells Ceremony. Each student in our class spread out throughout the school with a bell. At 1:00 we rang the bells for one minute. Much of the school came and listened to the ringing of these bells. It was a very touching experience.
Each of us brought a bell to ring.
We stood all over the school.
Ringing the bells for one minute so all students can hear.
The classes stood outside their class to listen.
We showed our patriotism to family and friends by learning about the founding of our country and ringing the bells. We also say the Pledge of Allegiance every school morning, standing straight and tall with our hand over our heart.
What are some things you do to show your patriotism?
