Parents, staff and students gathered at 8 a.m. on Friday, September 14, 2001 for a prayer and remembrance service dedicated to the memory of those lost in the tragic events of the past week.

The American flag was displayed and a large circle was formed around it.  The principal recited the day's "Words of Wisdom" and the music teacher read an email letter from his grown step-son to his son in sixth grade at home.

The Pledge of Alligiance was recited, as well as the Peace Builders' Pledge.  Several staff members led the crowd in beautiful renditions of "God Bless America" and the National Anthem.

A moment of silence was observed.
