GUTHRIE PUBLIC SCHOOL STUDENTS PARTICIPATE IN “OH SAY CAN YOU SING”
September 12, 2014
Today at 12:00 noon, students from across the Guthrie school district participated in the national initiative “Oh Say Can You Sing”. In honor of the casualties associated with the terrorist attacks our country received on September 11, 2001, students nationwide paused to reflect on the act and sing our national anthem.
According to GPS Superintendent Dr. Mike Simpson,
”It is hard for us as adults to comprehend the time that has passed since this act happened. Many of our students hadn’t been born yet and almost all were too young to understand the importance of the event when it happened. This patriotic gesture will add to the significance for our students and help them to properly place this event in time. “
Pictured below: Guthrie Upper Elementary students from Amy Barrie’s 6th grade class sing The Star Spangled Banner to honor the United States and particularly the casualties from terrorist acts on September 11, 2001.
The 9/12 Generation Project is a national youth service-learning initiative whose mission is to inspire and educate middle and high school students with the positive lessons of humanity, kindness, and citizenship of 9/12 – the day after 9/11– when the Nation came together. The project's goal is to activate these students in service-learning projects focused on community revitalization, disaster relief, and the arts and empower students to have a positive impact on communities beyond their economic means and geographic limitations while bringing to life the timeless and universal core values of citizenship that transformed our Nation on 9/12.
