Schools to remember 9/11

Sunday, September 4, 2011

Clay City High School Principal Jeff Bell
Clay Community Schools (CCS) will remember Sept. 11, 2001, tragedies Friday, Sept. 9.

Each school will remember and learn about the historical events of Sept. 11, in their own way.

"Some of the younger junior high students were only a few years old when September 11 happened; so they don't remember much. But we are going to spend the day teaching and explaining the significance of that day," Clay City Junior/Senior High School (CCHS) Principal Jeff Bell said. "It's going to be a very loving, caring time, and we'll have student led television segments throughout the day."

CCHS students involved in the school's news program, Clay City TV (CCTV), will do on-air readings to commemorate the events of 9/11.

In addition, the student-run broadcast channel will air highlights of historical news coverage, pictures and audio recordings for a special presentation.

On Friday, North Clay Middle School will begin its day with a moment of silence and later in the day, a school-wide video will be presented. In addition, NCMS Principal Jeff Allen said Social Studies teachers in the building will conduct a poster contest.

Van Buren Elementary (VBE) teachers will incorporate lessons into their day, which will focus on 9/11 heroes.

VBE students will share library books about these heroes with a focus on positive themes.

Meridian Elementary student council members will lead the student body in the Pledge of Allegiance, followed by a moment of silence.

During the school day, classroom teachers will utilize lessons in the students' weekly readers and other course materials to educate students.

Meridian pupils will also color flags and hang them throughout the building to remember lost lives.

Staunton Elementary will educate its students with in-class lessons and a moment-of-silence in observance of 9/11.

Jackson Township Elementary teachers plan to discuss the significance of the day with students, but have no specific events scheduled.

Other area schools are still developing instructional plans and investigating what they will do to commemorate the 10-year anniversary of 9/11.

I would reccomend to tell the story exactly as it happened & that it was always the intention to harm us. These radical extremist Moslems factions, who went on the attacks from Februry 1993 of World Trade Center, with a rented truck filled of explosives to other attacks around the world aimed only as US Ambassies and our USS Cole, while refueling in Yemen....so don't fanagle and do not even throw idiotic connspiracies on the part our our President. There are plenty of footage on record, captured by by standers, news teams and even tourists! No Hollywood fantasis, nor Holliwood stars with idiotic statements. Do not mud the waters with cristal clear facts! It takes a few feeble minded persons to take the bait, and run with this "new discovery wich was kept secret!" to make themselves feel important. Like the notion as "an actrss,wich does not deserve the attention to devoulge her name", that the collapse of the tween towers was "other" than what proved evident. That fire does not melt steel.....! Hello??!!!! Any brains in head who thinks like that? What temperatures would generate thousands of pound of jet fuel, in Planes which were destined to go to the west coast? How do you form steel...oh!?! And why even weeks later our firemen's boots were melting even with out flames, not to speak of the poor cadaveder dog's paws being burnt?! Ponder on that!One more Item, very important: Why we went in Iraq? President Bush was very clear and it is on record with all news media when he annouced: you aid and habor our enemies, we will come after you. So, remember when quite a few AlQueda leader were wounded or cornered and excaped into Iraq from Afganistan?! Saddam did aid and habored those people,and even threatened us if we dared go into his country, using against us wepons of mass distruction, which we knew he had at least chemical wepons, as he did use against the Kurd population(that is well recored, as well)and led us to beleive he had atomic wepons!Bush said : You either with us or against us. End of story!
