Patriot Day is an annual observance on September 11 to remember those who were injured or died during the terrorist attacks in the United States on September 11, 2001. Many Americans refer Patriot Day as 9/11 or September 11. In memory of the nearly 3,000 people who were killed in the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks, each year in the United States we observe Patriot Day and National Day of Service and Remembrance.
This year Patriot Day falls on Sunday, September 11, 2016. The staff and students did not want to miss the opportunity to honor our heroes so they chose to observe Patriot Day on Friday, September 9, 2016. The students learned about the meaning of the word hero, honored local heroes, listened to patriotic music, attended a flag raising ceremony, gained knowledge about the symbolism of the flag, and completed different community service projects as part of the Patriot Day Ceremony.
"As we join in serving causes greater than ourselves and honoring those we lost, we are reminded of the ways that the victims of 9/11 live on — in the people they loved, the lives they touched, and the courageous acts they inspired. On Patriot Day and National Day of Service and Remembrance, we pledge to carry on their legacy of courage and compassion, and to move forward together as one people.”
~Presidential Proclamation–Patriot Day and National Day of Service and Remembrance
