Staff and students from John Pearl Elementary School commemorated those who lost their lives on Sept. 11, 2001 during a special Patriot Day celebration held in front of the school’s War Memorial.

Prior to the assembly, John Pearl Elementary School Principal Susan White thanked the staff and students for attending and reminded them of the importance of celebrating Patriot Day on an annual basis. 

Fifth grade students from Annamarie Damore’s and Jeanne Cardone’s classes then led the attendees in reciting the Pledge of Allegiance, dressed in their colorful red, white and blue outfits. Additionally, the students sang patriotic songs, including the John Pearl School song and “Nothing More” by The Alternate Routes.
