With a rousing rendition of “You’re a Grand Old Flag,” kindergarteners at Calvert Elementary School kicked off their Sept. 22 celebration of Constitution Day, an event that included patriotic songs performed by the students, a parade through the school’s hallways and a snack of strawberries and blueberries.
Family members filled the school’s multi-purpose room for the 45-minute program, the culmination of weeks of classroom learning about various symbols of America. Students also have read “We the Kids,” a children’s book about the preamble of the U.S. Constitution, and created their own rules of respect for classrooms and the school. The kindergartners created their own American flags, as well, which they waved during the parade.
