Constitution Week September 17-23

September 17-23 is Constitution Week and schools all over Lincoln kicked off the week with special events. 

Constitution Week, which also includes Constitution Day and Citizenship Day on September 17, is an American observance to commemorate the adoption of the United States Constitution. The purpose of the observance week is to promote study and education about the constitution which was originally adopted by the American Congress of the Confederation on September 17, 1787.

"Constitution Day and Citizenship Day is important to help students understand and celebrate the rights and freedoms we have in our country," said Jaci Kellison, K-12 Social Studies Curriculum Specialist for Lincoln Public Schools. "It gives teachers and students time to explore and reflect on our nation's democratic ideals and aids in preparing our students to be engaged, active, and informed citizens."

Check back as we will be adding video and pictures of our different classroom celebrations all week long.
