Ms. Tirrell’s Class Celebrate Patriot’s Day

For Patriot's Day, Ms. Tirrell's 2nd grade class learned about what is a “Patriot”. Together, the class determined that a Patriot is:

  • someone who keeps us safe
  • a hero
  • someone who is proud of our country
  • someone who protects our country

Each student drew an illustration of how they will help at home, at school and in our community. A picture book was created with all of the students' drawings.

By a joint resolution approved December 18, 2001 (Public Law 107-89), Congress designated September 11th of each year as Patriot Day, and by Public Law 111-13 (April 21, 2009), Congress has requested the observance of September 11 as an annually recognized National Day of Service and Remembrance.
