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
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.”
