Ms. Owen's Kindergarten Class learned about patriotism and liberty today in honor of the memory of those who were lost on September 11, 2001. The students did not learn about the events of 9/11/2001, but rather they focused on what being a patriot means and what it means to be a soldier. Carmel Elementary participated in a moment of silence at 9:00 a.m.
The students also honored those who protect the liberty we enjoy. They especially honored and recognized their classmate Zachary’s dad who is currently stationed in Afghanistan. Zachary's brother Ethan is a 4th grader at Carmel Elementary School. The students cheered, "Thank you SSgt. Lasenyik! We salute you!"
