Special Remembrances of 9/11

Students in line by American flags

As we reflect upon 20 years since 9/11, educators in our schools work hard to help students understand the tragedy of the attack, as well as the bravery of our first responders and so many that day and in the days after.

Many of our schools hosted special remembrances, featuring some of our own first responders. Please enjoy these few photos from several elementary schools in our District.
