As a way of honoring America, and in observance of the special meaning of September 11, we invite students and faculty to wear red, white or blue clothing to school on Wednesday, September 11. This is completely voluntary; please do not feel the need to buy new clothing for the day. In addition, weather permitting, our entire school will recite the Pledge of Allegiance before entering the school building to start the day. Throughout the school year, we will have many other special days and events for the children and faculty to foster school spirit.
