K-12 Students Participated in Various Lessons and Activities to Pay Tribute to those Lost on 9/11/01
 
Last week, in honor of the 20th anniversary of the September 11th attacks, the Glen Cove City School District K-12 social studies department dedicated instruction to honor and remember those who lost their lives on September 11, 2001. 
 
Students participated in class discussions and reflections regarding the attacks, as well as writing thank you letters to Glen Cove police officers and firefighters, many of whom went to help those in need and aid in search and rescue efforts at Ground Zero. Students also created “Remembrance Chains” with construction paper and delivered “Kindness Rocks” to other classrooms.
 
Classes also participated in the “9/11 Good Deed Challenge,” where students pledged to complete a good deed on 9/11 and dedicate their compassionate action to someone they care about as a way to keep alive the spirit of unity that arose in the immediate aftermath of the 9/11 attacks —providing a positive, helpful way for students to annually remember and pay tribute to the 9/11 victims.
