Duffield students celebrated the birthday of the country’s government on Constitution Day, held on Sept. 17.

The students dressed in patriotic colors, read literature about the importance of the Constitution, and discussed and wrote about how they can be good citizens. Older students studied the wording and deciphered their own meaning of key phrases within the document. Additionally, each student had the opportunity to sign the Duffield Constitution.

Also known as Citizenship Day, Constitution Day celebrates the 39 delegates’ signing of the U.S. Constitution at the Constitutional Convention, held in Philadelphia on Sept. 17, 1787. The day also recognizes all U.S. and naturalized citizens.
