Senior Students Lead Sept. 11 Remembrance
While at the senior retreat at Camp Tejas on September 9-10, the senior class did more than work on leadership skills and play games. They also planned a 9/11 remembrance assembly for the entire school that was focused on the importance of serving others.
Senior students put together a slideshow presentation and gently told the story of what happened 11 years ago.
“We wanted to make sure the story was told honestly without revealing too much to our younger students,” said secondary principal Carol Johnson. “I’m very proud of the way the seniors planned and handled the telling of the story.”
As part of the service theme, students pledged to do good works of service on September 11 in remembrance of the service men and women who gave their lives in 2001, as well as the many people around the United States who gave of their time and money to help in the relief and recovery efforts. All students were given time to build a paper quilt square to be part of the school’s “service quilt,” which will hang in the school once it is completed.
