Patriot Day Prayer Service~10 September 2021

On Friday, September 10th, Deacon Greg Kaiser joined our students and staff for an annual Patriot Day Prayer Service to commemorate those who lost their live in the terrorist attack on September 11, 2001, as well as to pay tribute to and thank all the heroes of that day.

Students read original poems, we prayed, we sang God Bless America, and gathered for the raising of the American flag and the Pledge of Allegiance.  Click on the links below to read the poem that were read by our 5-8 grade students.
