    Posted by Patricia Rooney on 9/7/2018

    Seventeen years ago this summer our freedom was attacked by individuals who challenged our way of life.  On September 11, 2001, fellow patriots sacrificed their lives when four planes hijacked by terrorists used those planes to destroy landmarks and tried to crush our spirit as Americans.  As New Yorkers, the emotions of that day are still raw in our hearts and minds.  But that horrific act, motivated by hate, never crushed our spirit as a nation.  This Tuesday, on September 11th, please take a moment to remember that as human beings we value perseverance, courage, and kindness.  Now let us all stand and say the pledge of Allegiance remembering all of those who gave the ultimate sacrifice so we may enjoy our freedoms.                                                      

    Attention Juniors and Seniors: Juniors and seniors are provided with the privilege of parking on school grounds.
