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.
