Constitution Day celebrated at Phenix Elementary
On Friday, Sept. 17, Phenix Elementary celebrated Constitution Day. Every teacher shared information about the day with their students. Books such as Constitution Day and We the Kids of the United States were read in the library. Patriotic songs, including our national anthem, were listened to in music class. Students went out to the flagpole and said the Pledge of Allegiance. An American flag made with kindergarten students’ handprints and pre-kindergarteners’ and first graders’ thumbprints were displayed in the entranceway of the school. Upper grades focused their efforts on writing activities surrounding rules, learning the three different branches of the National Government and the responsibilities of each branch, and learning the actual words to the Preamble of the Constitution.
