LCS Pays Tribute to the Tragedy of 9/11

Resource Officer Scott with Ms. Dail's Class

In the week leading up to the 20th anniversary of 9/11, Lincoln Charter Students learned about the tragic events and paid tribute to those in our community who stand ready to serve. As a school, we collected Hersey's "hugs" and "kisses" to deliver to first responders, but many classes and individuals paid tribute as well. 

Mrs. Dail and Ms. Johnson’s second grade class honored Officer Scott and Nurse Brittain who help to keep us safe and healthy.

Seventh graders examined primary sources, posing questions for investigation, and gathering additional narratives from 9/11/2001. Ultimately students are thinking through the importance of learning about what happened, and exploring the aftermath of tragedy. Many students learned about the courage and sacrifice of Welles Crowther, the man in the red bandana, who saved 12 people from the South Tower. On 9/11, three students wore red bandanas as a symbol of not only Welles heroic acts, but for all the lives lost on that day.



And many classes created cards thanking the first responders in our community.
