Remembering 911

  • Independence Elementary remembers 9/11

    On Sept. 11th, students at Independence Elementary remembered and honor those heroes who bravely perished or fought to save lives in the attacks on September 11, 2001.  Mrs. Bernadette Legoria’s 4th grade class read I Survived the Attacks of 9/11 in a pass the book activity, Mrs. Jamie Greer’s class created Never Forgotten ribbons to commemorate the fallen heroes of 9/11, and Mrs. June Willis’ 2nd grade students created a hand flag to hang in their hallway at school.   Superintendent Mark Kolwe stated, in an email to teachers throughout the parish, the importance of teaching our children about our country, patriotism, and the freedom that we so often take for granted.
