School and 9/11
Does everyone have school this Wednesday? I thought maybe they would observe the day and close school. Nope, not happening here. Which I have mixed feelings about. How are your schools honoring the date?
The students at DS#1's elementary school will observe a moment of silence and the students are asked to wear red, white and blue.
Across the street at the primary school, DS#2's kindergarten will also wear RWB and they will walk to the fire station (on the same block) and recite the Pledge of Allegiance with the firefighters. (If I could go, I'd just be a mess of tears at that sight!) DS can't wait, he's so tickled with himself for having learned the Pledge.
The preschoolers in our MOMS Club will meet to decorate cookies and deliver them to the firefighters. Terrorism goes over their heads (thankfully) but they can thank a firefighter.
